What You Need:

  • Garbage bag to put used litter in
  • Normal cleaner to wash box out thoroughly

  3. Sit the box in the sun for at least 20 minutes to dry thoroughly

When your cat digs in the litter box, the claws leave behind scratches in the plastic that harbor odor-causing bacteria.

Why it Works:

The sun works like bleach, killing germs so that the litter box smells fresh. Repeat each time you empty the litter box.
