Deodorize, Prevent Mildew, Absorb Grease and More–With Kitty Litter??

Yep, it’s true! Deodorize the ‘fridge with an open container of kitty litter. Place a sprinkle or two at the bottom of the garbage and/or diaper pail. Put kitty litter into a couple of knee-high nylon stockings, tie a knot in the stockings and place in your shoes to absorb any perspiration and make them smell nice and fresh.  Works in a laundry hamper too–especially if wet clothes or towels seem to mysteriously find their way in there.

Prevent mildew by placing an open container of kitty litter in a bathroom or closet. And make sure your camping gear is mildew free next summer, include a few socks of litter in the tent before stowing it for the winter.

A ten pound bag of kitty litter will absorb up to a gallon of oil, gasoline or paint. You just never know when this tip might come in handy.  😉  But an extension of this tip is: add a layer of litter at the bottom of your grill to prevent grease fires. (No more charcoal chicken).

And one last, totally random tip: pour litter down a mole hole to encourage those furry little destroyers to go elsewhere! It’s a kinder, gentler solution to a very annoying problem!  Kind of an outdoor housekeeping tip ;-).

  1. Both baking soda & kitty litter cure a multitude of sins. Great suggestions! One more about kitty litter when winter arrives…Carrying a couple of 10-lb bags in the trunk of your car will lessen the chances of the back end of the car ‘fish-tailing’ on icy streets. And if you come to a spot that’s impassable because of ice, get one of the bags out and sprinkle on the ice patch, then tread cautiously on thin ice.

  2. Yeah it’s ridiculous how issues like this one begin looking unbelievably unimportant compared to the world events. The next phase of the cold-war, the actual true war that erupts, Russia-China gas deal axis… Yet here we’re with this social-media dilemmas, – can we see the earth has changed? I’m not saying what you come up with is inconsequential, Iam indicating that the certain degree of detachment is balanced. Thanks, Sarah @
