Review: NonScents Cat Litter Deodorizer

I have an aunt who lost her hearing at an early age due to a series of childhood illnesses, and then subsequently lost her sight as a young woman. She has enjoyed a full life thanks to an amazing husband, four great kids...and a deep love of cats. (I come from a loooooooong line of cat ladies on my mom's side of the family.)

Many years ago after losing Sashi I went 15 months without a cat before adopting Tara. I hadn't had a chance to let my aunt know about my new family member before she surprised me with a visit one day. Upon entering the house the very first thing she communicated to me was, "You got a new cat!"

How on earth could she know that?

Her answer horrified me...she could smell the litter box.

Now granted when a person has lost two of their senses, those remaining are going to be enhanced, but I couldn't help but wonder if the odor really was that obvious and I had just become accustomed to it?

We were recently contacted about trying out the NonScents Cat Litter Deodorizer, and accepted since litter box odors are something so many pet parents struggle with. (Although in all honesty, litter box odors should never be *that* bad if you're religious about cleaning and scooping on a regular basis. Inappropriate elimination is one of the top reasons why cats are relinquished to shelters, and many times occur simply because a cat is trying to say the smells coming from their litter pan are simply intolerable!)

Before telling you about our experience, here are 5 things the NonScents people want you to know about their cat litter deodorizer:
  • Eliminates odor: Our scientifically developed zeolite formula doesnt just mask odors- it completely neutralizes them at the source, leaving litter pans completely scent-free
  • Gentle, fragrance-free: Unlike other brands that contain harmful chemicals and strong fragrances, our formula is scent-free and free from chemical additives, which keeps your cat safe and comfortable
  • Concentrated: Our professional grade formula is 4x concentrated, making it strong enough to neutralize even the strongest litter box odors
  • Long-lasting: Our formula was designed to help extend the life of your cat litter: by eliminating odor, you can get the most of out your preferred cat litter without resorting to harmful chemicals or overpowering air-fresheners
  • Easy application: Simply sprinkle a small layer of NonScents over your cats litter tray, and enjoy a safe, odor-free environment

We've been using the cat litter deodorizer for about 6 weeks now and have been very pleased by its performance. We received 3 bottles which are sure to last a long time because a very light layer is all that's necessary for a one cat home, and I've reapplied a layer each time I refill the box, which is typically about once a week. The "bleachy" scent of the deodorizer itself is initially rather strong but once added to the litter quickly dissipated, and it never seemed to bother Mudpie, which is all that really matters. Granted my little angel isn't known for dropping many stink bombs, but even the most miniscule odors I would be able to detect every now and then seem to have disappeared!

I would say a home with multiple cats would be better able to test this product out completely, but if you've been thinking about trying out a cat litter deodorizer, we definitely recommend this one!

I think the real test would be to have your aunt come over and see what she says!

This sounds like a great product. I like that it doesn't just add an overpowering scent on top of the litter box odor. It's going on my list of things to try! :)

Around here, we need something like this! Thanks for the review.

Thanks, Melissa. I don’t like “perfumey” cat litter, so this would be great to add to the litter box.

I am now very, very interested in trying out this product. We have some stink bomb droppers here at our house, and I can't even begin to describe what the kittens leave behind in their wake. I've quickly added this to my Amazon cart. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Our litter box is in the corner of the living room because we have a small apartment. Mommy is fanatical about the smell so we be this would be good to try.

Thank you for the share. Sometimes the litter box can have a little smell to it, even if you clean it out every day. Thanks for the review of this product. Have a great day.
