Odor Control Tips
Let me begin by giving credit where credit is due. Virtually everything I’ve learned about controlling litter box order was obtained from people sharing information at Litter box Central (www.litterbox-central.com ). My notes here are for the most part simply a condensation from that source.
Here are several factors that contribute to litter box odor — and probably the largest single component is what goes in to your cat. The right cat food can make a huge difference between a miserably stinky environment and one that’s odor free. (Please take a few moments to read the Scoop Free section at Litter box Central for more on this topic).
Choice of Litter
The second biggest variable is in your choice of litter (see Recommended Litter). After a lot of testing (totally by myself and friends, using our own noses) I’ve come to the conclusion that for the most part, the Fresh Step crystals work the best for me. I emphasize for me, as some people may have problems with the scent used in this litter, etc. But generally I’ve found this to be the best choice, with the highest odor-absorbing capability.
Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers
Being the incessantly curious person that I am, I noticed that many of the litter companies have started advertising heavily around activated charcoal in their products. After some searching (and further experimentation), I found a pretty darned amazing product — Innofresh. I spent some time talking with them on the phone to learn more about their odor absorbers to learn as much as I could — but the real proof was when my wife noticed a significant further reduction in odors after I’d had a unit in my Scoop Free for a couple of days.
Now thatwas the critical test. Pretty impressive.
I keep one stuck under the purple lid. It simply clips to one of the “vanes” that hold the magnet, and lasts about 3 months. I was so impressed I signed on as a product distributor, and now carry them here in a 4 pack for $14.00. (It doesn’t make sense with shipping and all to just order one).
Here’s the info from Innofresh:
Innofresh™ PET Fragrance Free odor absorbers utilizes our patented activated carbon technology to eliminate odors and is completely fragrance free. No worry about irritating or harmful fragrances for your pets or yourself. Fragrances just cover up odors while Innofresh™ PET odor absorber traps and eliminates those lingering odors from your pets.

What are the best ways for pet odor control? Cat, Hamster, bird or snake, they are loved and with that love comes odor.
How to get rid of pet odor in the air has been a big issues around the house these days. I have done some research on the subject and are the areas to look for to get rid of pet odors.
Pet odors have a variety of smells and different challenges when it come to clearing the air of odor in your house or if you put your pet in the car or carrier.
I first look to determine the source of the odor problem. Finding out what is causing the odor. Is the odor in a specific area or is it general overall bad smell in the room. Does the odor confined to a litter box? If it does you have litter box odor, which is very easy to fix with an odor absorber and change of the litter tray granules .
Look in their cage or where the pet lives and where do they go to the bathroom. This includes the carpet, floor or favorite corners. Pets will use a carpet or rug at their bathroom area, so you will need to clean regularly in those areas. This is the first place to gain control of your odor problem.
The amount of odor you will have will also depend on how many pets you own. One dog has a very different in the odor level than many dogs. Does the dog live inside or out? The same is true for one cat compared to five cats. Inside cat or an outside cat. Cat odor will multiply with the number of animals.
Look for pet dander, length of fur, saliva, animal markings that will all magnify and add to your pet odor problem. The best solutions to get the odor our of the air is to use a naturally activated charcoal odor absorber for absorbing the odors and occasional smells.
Figure out if the problem is an odor or a smell? An odor that comes from specific pet area like from urine, poop or the materials such as a litter box or papers on the floor or in the cage will need to be cleaned, then washed and materials removed, before you can get effective odor absorption with an odor absorber.
Check to see of the animal use your carpet of furniture as the place to go to the bathroom? Odors will often happen when the pet gets up on your furniture or uses your drapes to rub up against. All of these normal pet activities will keep your pet smells and odor level high.
Odors on the other hand will continue to annoy your nose and eyes when you are in the house or car. If you cannot get use to a specific odor or smell the longer you are in the room, then it is not a smell it is an odor. Odor needs to be eliminated, so check under the beds, sniff out the furniture, since your pet may have left you a “present” that you need to clean up. After you checked for “presents”, determine if it may be something else like a dead mouse in the wall or it could be more serious such as a mold issue in the wall.
A smell may at first be noticeable and will fade as you are in the room longer and get use to the room smell. When the smell is noticeable when you enter the house, then not as time goes on it needs an odor absorber to absorber the smells. It is most likely a fur or the carpet smell of the animal.
If the animal sleeps in bed with you and you have odor, your bed linens and pads need to be washed. When a mattress has been pet stained, you will need to replace the mattress. When the animal get up on your furniture, use a fabric odor remover or an odor absorber like Innofresh will do the job.
Different types of pets need differnt odor elimination. Dog odor must use different odor treatment than a cat. For any pet such as a cat or reptiles such as snake, or mice or gerbils it will need to be non toxic. Birds and fish require yet another type of treatment for outside the cage or tank area odor absorber. Be sure to also look for one that is fragrance free, and is a non toxic odor absorber to the pet. Dogs try to eat the odor absorbers so it is not recommended for dogs, unless you can keep it out of their reach.
