Use Sand Instead Of Cat Litter

Better than cheap cat litter, free! Indoor cats were using sandboxes long before the current craze for pricey cat litter.

Open a garbage can liner into your litter box, fold the top back over the outside of the box and tuck the ends underneath the box. Lay a thick layer of old newspaper in the bottom of your litter box. Sprinkle on a generous coating of baking soda. Add approximately 1 1/2 inches of sand or even plain old dirt, just make sure it is dry.


I keep a 5 gallon bucket of sand sitting by the litter box. Each day, I add another 1 inch of sand. Every third day +/-, depending on how many cats you have and how often they use it, lift the bag out, seal it, and throw it away. Refill the box. It takes about 5 minutes.

If changed often, there are no odor problems. If you sit your litter box on a rubber backed doormat, it will prevent them tracking sand all over the house.
