13 Human Uses for Kitty Litter


Lucy, Artsy Catsy Spokesmodel: And you thought I was just a pretty face? Well, I'm now the Executive Director of our Research & Development Division, and my first project is to offer you the following 13 Human Uses for Kitty Litter. It's not just for getting your car out of the snow anymore!

1. Make flower arrangements: Put kitty litter in vases to anchor dried or artificial flowers.

2. Deodorize trash cans: Put kitty litter in the bottom of the trash bag in your wastebasket to prevent odors.

3. Create perfect dried flowers: Put a layer of kitty litter in an airtight plastic container, lay flowers over it, seal the container and set it aside for a week.

4. Deodorize shoes: Put some kitty litter in socks and put the socks in your shoes.

5. Have a facial: Smash 3 tablespoons of 100% clay litter with 3 tablespoons of water and apply to the face until dry for a clay mask like spas use to remove toxins from facial skin.

6. Prevent fires: Pour a layer of kitty litter in the bottom of your barbecue grill; this also creates a better draft for proper cooking.

7. Deodorize your refrigerator: Kitty litter works just as well as baking soda.

8. Deodorize ashtrays: Just put some kitty litter in the bottom.

9. Grow healthy plants: Use equal parts kitty litter and soil to plant flowers, vegetables and shrubs. It keeps the soil evenly moist and improves root development, and is safe for any kind of plant.

10. Clean up oil or paint spills: A 10-pound sack of kitty litter absorbs more than a gallon of liquid.

11. Prevent falls:
Use kitty litter instead of salt on icy sidewalks, steps and driveways.

12. Keep storage sweet:
Store clothing, linens, books, papers, camping equipment etc. with 1/2 - 1 cup of kitty litter tied up in a sock to prevent mustiness and mold.

13. Evict moles: Moles hate the smell of used kitty litter. Pour some into the entrance of one of their tunnels and watch the exodus!

Hmmmm. I'll be turning 9 this year so perhaps I should try the facial. We girlie cats need to keep our looks as we age.

Wow, who knew there were so many uses for kitty litter...besides the obvious. You should send your suggestions to Fresh Step! The commercials could be hilarious! Especially the facial one!

Moki said...

Wow we learned alot! We had no idea kitty litter could be used in so many different ways!

Sassy Kat said...

We have moles sometimes out here where I live, will have to try and get rid of them.
Saw that you stopped by for auditions, will put you in the casting as no decisions have been made yet. Need to know who is turning out for the part as with the limited number of parts and the many wanting parts I can only have one per family or blog. Come back leave your name, if you are a boy or a girl, just to make sure I am right. Will be casting soon so come on back.

Mum has used plain old kittie litter on icy spots for years. It is dark, so when the sun does come out it helps melt the ice. Then, you can just sweep it into the grass. No chemical problems with salt.

Angus Mhor said...

Wow..can you use the scoopable type, or should it only be the old-fashioned clay-type? Who knew you could do more in it than just your business?!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

At first I had thought you meant USED kitty litter but then when you said put it in the fridge we realized that wasn't it... sigh.

Kate said...

This is absolutely brillent, i would never have thought of all those uses. Its funny how something so obvious can pass you by.

Eric and Flynn said...

We never knew you could use it furr all those diffrunt fings. We knew about the oil though cuz dad sumtimes pinches our litter and puts on the garrij floor.

Orlando Bun said...

That wheat stuff is pretty tasty if you can get to it before Sophia drags her big butt all over it.

Life with Simba said...

Hello Artsy .... I think kitty litter is a wonderful house decoration. I just love the look on the lady's face when she comes home from work and finds my latest remodeling of the bathroom.

Cats suck.

also use it to fill draft socks! pour litter into a sock, tie the end, and use it for the drafts at your door or window sill.

All those cat owners, whoose loveable little darlings keep fowling my garden could put their unused litter to use by gritting the roads!
