These are uses for traditional, non-clumping Kitty Litter.
1. Carry cat box filler in the trunk of your car and use it to aid tire traction on icy roads. It can also provide traction and improve safety on sidewalks, steps and driveways. Keep a small bag in your car and sprinkle a small amount on the ground before you get out of your car for foot traction in icy conditions. 2. Put cat box filler into ashtrays to reduce odor. 3. To make inexpensive shoe deodorizers, fill old socks with cat
box litter and stuff in shoes. This also works for drying out wet shoes. 4. Use cat litter to clean up oil or paint spills. A 10-pound sack of litter will absorb more than a gallon of liquid. When the litter dries, dispose of as locally directed the same way you would for oil.
When I scoop out my cat's litter box, I practice some squats. After I finish scooping, I use a short-handled whisk broom and dustpan that I found at a dollar store to sweep up all of the litter that my cat has sprayed all over the tile floor. I do all of this while in a squatting position. By the time I am done, my cat's litter area looks great, and my legs feel the burn from the exercise!
One of our fellow Sparkers commented on my 1st posting for kitty litter and added a suggestion for a workout.
1. When she shops at WalMart or another store she goes straight to the Kitty litter and puts ten 10# boxes in her cart. Pushing an extra 100 pounds has helped her lose weight. Before checking out she returns to the Cat litter section and 're-stocks' what she has borrowed. 2. Place Cat litter in an open container and put in basement to get rid of that musty smell. 3. Cat litter
makes an effective odor remover in other places as well. Someone once stored some onions in our picnic cooler. When we discovered it, the cooler had a strong smell of onion that couldn't be washed out. We put Cat litter in an old pair of panty hose. The smell was gone the next day.
