Everyone knows I love cats. But what you may not know is that I despise the smells that come with cats, particularly the litter box odors. Sure there are plenty of inventive ways to disguise litter box odors from air fresheners to baking soda to fragrant candles. But at the heart of the odors is the litter.
A good litter not only neutralizes odors but also prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria. We have two cats who make great use of the litter box. Since cat urine has a strong ammonia smell, it's crucial to find a litter that stops ammonia in its tracks so your entire house doesn't reek of ammonia, which can become very strong very quickly.
On a recent shopping trip to Sam's Club I found Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze, a product that is exclusive to Sam’s Club. I couldn't wait to give it a try. Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze contains Borate Technology which provides superior ammonia control to keep your home smelling fresh and ammonia-free. The litter has a lemongrass citrus scent that is light and fresh and the added power of Febreze controls odors effectively.
Cat litter is one of those items that I seem to buy every time I am at the grocery store, and before I know it, it's gone. I was thrilled to see that Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze comes in a 42 lb. bag and is easy to transport and carry. It even has a built-in handle for easy carrying.

Cat litter isn't just for cats! I loved the lemongrass scent of Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze so much that I decided to use it around the house. Not only does this cat litter smell great, it also looks pretty. I wanted a way to display the litter and be able to smell it too.
I had an empty glass hurricane lying around the house. If you don't have one, you can buy one at a craft store. I washed it so it was nice and clear.
I filled it one quarter of the way with Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze. As I was pouring the litter, I could smell the lemongrass citrus scent. To level the litter, give the hurricane a gentle shake.
Part of my participation in this campaign included a charitable component. I was generously offered $100 to donate to my favorite shelter. We adopted both of our cats, Sam and Jade, from Point Paws. After our first visit to Point Paws four years ago, we knew immediately that this was the shelter for us. The volunteers were so friendly and passionate about the cats they were caring for. Sam and Jade have brought so much joy to our family that giving to Point Paws was the obvious choice.
The volunteers at Point Paws were beyond grateful for our thoughtfulness and generosity. I know the money will be well allocated and the cats will be taken care of with love.
Do you have any creative ways for using cat litter around the house?
