You love your cats and you wouldn’t trade them for all the money in the world… but sometimes the smell of their litter box can cramp your style and lead to embarrassing moments. Like the time you put the house on the market and when the visitors came inside, they suddenly “changed their mind…”

…Or the time you invited the in-laws over for dinner and your mother-in-law kept her napkin over her nose the entire time – and she didn’t even stay for dinner!

Tidy Cats says that their new formula with “Ammonia Blocker” works to keep smells at bay for up to two weeks! So we took Tidy Cats Lightweight with Ammonia Blocker for a test drive to see how it worked.
We decided to put Tidy Cats Lightweight with Ammonia Blocker to the test. Tidy Cats claims that, when used as directed, their new formula with Ammonia Blocker will keep your litter box smelling fresh for up to two weeks! To see how well it worked, we set aside one litter box to try it out. Normally, we clean/scoop all our litter boxes twice a day, every day to keep our cats happy and healthy and to keep our home smelling like a home (and not smelling like a used litter box).
I chose a litter box that is located in a small bathroom where it’s easy for odors to get trapped. Instead of cleaning this one litter box twice daily, we neglected it a little bit – just to see how well this litter worked at trapping the smell of urine. (Not to worry, my cats still had access to numerous other boxes throughout the house and they were always free to choose whichever box they preferred.) Instead of cleaning this box twice a day, we started out with once a day. Then we skipped an entire day. Then two days. Then I got grossed out (I think I’m a little obsessive compulsive about keeping things clean). While the box and it’s contents didn’t smell at all, I decided to make this a two-part trial…
For part two, I put the not-so-clean litter box in the basement and waited for the full two weeks. I went into the basement every couple of days to see if it smelled down there, but it didn’t. The litter worked just as Tidy Cats promised. Two weeks, no smell. And then I quickly cleaned the whole thing out (yuck!)
Note: I recommend developing healthy cleaning habits when it comes to your litter boxes and the health of your cats and home. It wouldn’t be healthy to avoid cleaning your litter boxes for days and weeks – not for you nor your cats. As I’ve mentioned on this blog many times before, we clean the litter boxes twice daily, every day. See this blog about litter box myths for more litter box cleaning tips.
