A natural way to deodorize the litterbox

We Review Litterbiotic Cat Litter Deodorizer

The Dollar Stretcher was sent a month's supply of Litterbiotic to facilitate this review. The Dollar Stretcher received no compensation for this review. All opinions expressed are those of the author.

The smell of a cat's litter box can be one of the worst smells there is. And sometimes the type of litter you buy makes the smell even worse. Even when you scoop litter daily, it can still smell bad. So when we were contacted by the makers of Litterbiotic about reviewing their new cat litter box deodorizer, the cat lovers here at TDS jumped at the chance. And we were really impressed! Here's what we thought:

What is Litterbiotic?

According to Litterbiotic's website, a cat's litter box is teeming with yucky bacteria feasting on the ammonia present in litter. Even with daily maintenance and scooping, the litter box can still be a smelly spot in the house. Instead of dumping products in a litter box to mask the smell, Litterbiotic is actually a package of probiotics, or good bacteria, that, when mixed with the litter in a litter box, feeds on the bad bacteria. According to the website, when Litterbiotic is used in the cat's litter box, healthy bacterial colonies are encouraged.

How Did We Test it Out?

We were sent a package of Litterbiotic, which is a month's supply. I took it home, and then went to my local grocer and bought the cheapest, plain clay litter I could find without any added deodorizers or odor eliminators. Then I set up a clean litter box with the new, cheaper litter, and I added sprinkles of Litterbiotic. And every time I scooped daily, I added a few sprinkles of Litterbiotic.

Why We Loved Litterbiotic

I could definitely tell a difference in litter box odor using Litterbiotic. I have used the less expensive litter in the past, and even with my daily cleaning routine, my kitty's litter box still had an odor. After my bad experience before, I had vowed not to use the less expensive brand of litter again. But I found with Litterbiotic, the litter box never had an odor with the cheaper litter! I think Litterbiotic encourages a better litter box environment, and it definitely made a difference in odor control. Plus it never affected the clumping capabilities of the litter - still easy to scoop and keep clean for my kitty.

What to Think About Before Buying Litterbiotic

Currently, Litterbiotic is selling for about $6.99 for a month's supply. Depending on how often you change your cat's litter, if you choose to go with a cheaper type of litter (and kitty is OK with the change) then you could potentially save money just adding Litterbiotic to the less expensive litter for better odor control and a healthier litter box too!
