Taking the Stink Out – Arm & Hammer Giveaway

Do you have an indoor cat?  I do.  We love our cat, we really do and it’s because we love him that we feel it’s best for him to be an indoor cat.  What we do not love, however, is having to deal with the litter box. (Well, I don’t … I make hubby do it.)  Especially on warm days.  There is nothing more embarrassing than to step into your house and get a whiff of the litter box.  Yuck.  Is that what people smell when they come over to our house? I hope not.

We’ve tried all sorts of cat litter from those little white beads, which quickly turned into little yellow beads that rolled everywhere, to clumping cat litter for multi cats (we have one) and even self scooping litter boxes.  They all more or less pretty much worked the same.  The odour was kept at bay for the first day or so and litter was tracked everywhere. 

So when I agreed to do a review for Arm & Hammer’s Cat Litter, I didn’t really think it was going to be much different.   It only took a few days for us to realize that Arm & Hammer’s Cat Litter really is very different. The first thing hubby mentioned to me when he filled up the cat box was how pleasant smelling the new litter was.  After a few days the clean smell remained and was evident every time our cat “visited” his box.  Even after we went camping for two days, when hubs came home and cleaned the box he commented on how much pleasanter a job it was.

Of course, when you realize that Arm & Hammer baking soda has been used for years from everything from odour control to freshening whites, it only makes sense to add it with cat litter.

“Ammonia Odour Block formula with powerful Baking Soda crystals and ammonia odour neutralizers eliminate even the toughest odours instantly.”

 


The best part (after the smell that is) was that after a few days I realized that there was barely any litter on my laundry room floor proving their 99% dust free and low track claim.  With the old litter it had been getting so bad at one point that I was even finding litter on my washing machine and I’d have to sweep the floor before I could even step in the doorway.

In fact, the only negative comment my husband had to make about this brand was that the box was too small. At the local Canadian Tire, they only had the small box.  Next time we will source out the bigger one.

In fact, I’m not alone in liking this product, apparently “36,500 Canadian consumers voted ARM & HAMMER® Double Duty Clumping Litter as the 2011 Best in Household Products for the 8th annual BrandsSpark International’s Best New Product Award.”
