Coffee in litter

I've read in a few posts here that adding used coffee grounds to the litter really helps with the strong, POTENT pee odor. My question is, does it have to be used coffee grounds? or can I simply purchase a can of coffee and add some to the litter?? I'm just curious cause I don't make coffee here at home all that often.

Have you tried baking powder? I think it works pretty well, I've never tried coffee though.

Did you mean baking soda? It's really good for reducing odor.

Sorry for the confusion, Betsy -- my post was directed to Siamese Cat.

I don't have any insight on the coffee grounds. Hope you get some feedback on that!

I meant baking powder, like Arm & Hammer. The stuff you put in your refrigerator to kill odors in the yellow orange box. I sprinkle it in with the litter and mix it, when I remember that is. Odor is not a huge issue in our house. I clean the boxes twice a day.

It sort of makes sense as coffee is pretty strong whe you smell it. Think how far the aeroma carries thru a house?

Probably will help with the ammonia smell from cat whizz. I really like Arm & hammer baking Soda though. I use a 1 pound box in 10 pounds of litter, mix up real good. I rarely smell the cats "business", soild or liquid.

Seems like coffee might get more costly?

I don't know because I don't drink it.

You know what lymekaps - you are right, it's soda. I think they both work though. I was thinking soda was in a metal can and powder was in the box...

siamesecat:

Here in the South, soda is generally Alka Seltzer and water for a stomach ache.

Soda as a drink is almost always simply called a Coke, even if its a Pepsi, most people just ask for a Coke.

Weird how one word means different things!
