When it comes to selecting the best type of cat litter, one of your considerations should be the litter’s ability to neutralize odor. We know your cat’s excrement doesn’t smell like roses but, using cat litter with Glade can disperse fresh floral or outdoorsy scents throughout your home.
How do you choose the best scent for your home and your cat? We’ve researched how scented and unscented litters combat odors to find the answer for you.
Scented litters promise to leave behind a fresh scent by covering the odor of excrement with either an artificial or natural additive fragrance. You can typically choose from a variety of scents like lavender, tropical breeze, or clear springs.

Unscented litters boast ultimate odor elimination by using odor absorbent additives like active charcoal or baking soda. The unscented litter does combat the smell of excrement from lingering throughout your home but, clean and soiled litters alike will generally smell like the material it is made from (clay, pine, corn, wheat, etc.).
Which Litter for Your Cat?
Most cat owners select litter with either unscented, odor elimination properties, or scented odor covering perfumes based on personal preferences.
What do cats think about litter scents? Although some studies suggest that cats might have an aversion to scented litters, the answer to what cats prefer is unclear. It seems that if the litter’s odor is overwhelming to you, it is probably overwhelming to your cat too.
We’ve put together a list of some of the best-scented litters with Glade to help with your selection. Let’s take a closer look at how these products can keep your litter box clean and smelling fresh.
