Litterbox Sanitation

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Thought I would share this with all of you, it is on my CatFancy Page-a-day calander for today.

Whey you clean and disinfect a litter box, try this natural solution in place of chemical products: Pour 2 cups of boiling water over 2 cups of fresh thyme. Strain and cool. Store in plastic bottles. Thyme is a natural antiseptic.

Have a good day, all!!

That is good to know. I hate using harsh chemicals - even bleach, so I'm going to start doing this from now on!

That's a good tip. I usually use steam to clean the litterbox, but the thyme solution would be useful for when I don't have time to fill the steamcleaner and wait for it to heat up.

Do you clean your litter box(es) in the bathtub? I ask because I can't picture you pouring water into a freestanding litter box (especially one sitting on carpet).

Thanks for sharing that tip! I'm always looking for a more natural solution!

Jenk: I'm sure it wouldn't matter where you did it, but accidents would be easier to clean up in the bathtub. That's where I clean mine.

I use a 33 gallon trash can to clean mine. I fill it with the bleach/water solution and just immerse them to soak them. Scrub them clean, air dry them, spray them with PAM dump the litter in and I am good to go. And of course wear rubber gloves only used for litterbox cleaning purposes...

Oh but hissy you know we all use the same gloves for litter boxes as we do to clean our dishes!
Never thought about using our trashcan (when we did have a big enough one) cause it was always full of trash!
