I have a friend who i gave a free bag to, trying to switch her. We visited them a few weeks later and i was HORRIFIED to find they not only didn't mix up the litter after scooping, but also used a liner with the crystals! So the smell was extremely strong, and it was white on top and dark yellow in the lower layer... in fact, one of their cats refused the litter after a week or so. I tried to change their minds, but they went back to they old brand.
IMO, crystal litter is great and it's much better than the oldfashioned kind, but you have to follow precise steps when handling it and change it as soon as it looses it's absorbency.
