And, the thing about litter box odors is that they sneak up on you. Our litter box station is in the basement so one would think any stink is contained downstairs. Nope. For some reason, when I’m in the kitchen, I often smell a random waft of cat pee. Or, even more poignant, cat poop.
So, short of scooping the litter box 20 times a day, what’s a cat parent to do?
I personally hate spraying deodorizers around the box because most of them are full of chemicals and fragrances. Quite a few of these types of products use a group of harmful chemicals, known as phthalates, to create the ‘fresh’ smell that air fresheners produce. And we try to keep exposure to those things to a minimum in our household.
Fortunately there are a few natural products on the market, though. I have tried some and some of them work well and others, not so much.
One that does work extremely well is Nose Offense.
Nose Offense is an all-natural, non-toxic odor neutralizer. There are no scents, alcohol, phenol & phenol derivatives, phosphates and phthalates. And, their packaging is biodegradable and recyclable. Whew!
OK but does it work? Yes! The first project I gave to Nose Offense was to keep me from dying of stinkiness after Pugsley used the litter box for #2. This stuff was really amazing. I sprayed it in the air around the litter box and soon the smell was gone and there were no perfume-y scents or particles to gag on. Nice!
I also sprayed it on the blanket that both boys love to sleep on. I don’t know how cat-ty that smells, because I may be used to it, so I asked my friend who does not have cats. She says my house does not smell like cats live here. Now that’s a relief.
The big test was to see if it could zap smells across species. I used it after a certain male human visited the powder room. Awesome! Got rid of that stink pretty fast as well.
Great product, great results and great feeling when I use it. Nose Offense makes it easy to zap odors and help the environment.

And, just so you
nose (ha ha) know: Nose Offense is a Happy Litter box sponsor and they have compensated me for exposure on this blog. But you guys know that I would not let any sponsors on board that I did not believe made superior product. So, suffice it to say I’d be talking about these guys even if they weren’t a sponsor. They’re that good!
