Litter box cleaning tips

If you have a pet that spends all or most of its time indoors chances are you also have a litter box – which, unfortunately spends all of its time indoors. However, having a litter box is not the end of the world, after all it is there to make your life easier and not any harder. There are a few simple tricks that you can use to make the up keep of your pet’s litter box much easier to do.
One obvious way is to regularly clean it out and to keep it clean. When you do completely clean out the cat litter from the litter box it is a good idea to clean out the box afterwards with warm water and bleach. The bleach will help to clean out any bacteria in the bottom of the litter box and it will also get rid of any smells.
You can also use litter box liners to protect the bottom of the litter box, the liners also make for easier cleaning and removal of the cat litter. If you do not use liners you could try newspaper but this could prove to be messy as your cat might get carried away with scratching.
