ARM & HAMMER® Essentials™ Clumping Litter

Pet Product Review – ARM & HAMMER® Essentials™ Clumping Litter

If you read my blog you know I am super fastidious, and a maniac about keeping my house clean and free of odor. Especially when it comes to the cat litter. There is nothing worse than an apartment that smells of litter box. ICK! So I make it a duty of mine to keep on top of what’s new and what works.

Well, over the weekend I went to the apartment of my friend Donalee. Now Donalee has 3 big, I mean like Maine Coon Cats, big chubby ones. Well, walking into her apartment was so pleasant. Not a hint of cat odor. So, I asked her what she uses. She told me that recently she switched to ARM & HAMMER® Essentials™ Clumping Litter.


She told me that she switched mostly because a friend of her’s lost a cat to cancer. And it made her think that maybe it was the chemicals in the fragrant litter the owner was using. Well, when it comes to green, there is no greater green company than Arm & Hammer, I mean come on, everything is made with baking soda. But this product is made, not only with baking soda, but super absorbent corn starch fibers. They soak up urine and urine odor instantaneously. Plus, because its not clay or rock, its lightweight, so you can carry those bags of old litter to the garbage can with ease. It is litterally half the weight of othe litter brands.

And because the grains are small they are soft for the cat’s footing.

It clumps so a daily, sometimes hourly scoop of the box is easy, even with three cats. But don’t flush it. Its not a flushable litter.

I looked all over, and the best prices are online at National Pet Pharmacy both for the 7lbs and 10lbs bags. Order here:
