Litter Genie Essentials Pail Saves the Day



With two children, three dogs, two cats, and a fish tank… things can get pretty hectic in my house and clearly I am out-numbered! Any solution that saves time and assists me in keeping the house clean is great. The Litter Genie is my new time and odor-saver. Available for purchase at Walmart, located down the pet supply aisle, the Litter Genie:

  • Locks cat litter and odors away
  • Seals waste for up to 14 days
  • Helps avoid a daily trip to the outdoor garbage can to dispose of used litter
  • Protects against germs
  • Fits into small spaces easily

How does the Litter Genie help me? To better understand, this is my house on a daily basis.

Two Crazy Cats

To clean the cat litter, I normally have to scramble through my house, trying to locate a plastic bag (we use reusable shopping bags). Then I have to scoop the litter into the bag and bring it to the garbage can outside (and hope my children don’t injure themselves when I leave the house).  Then I discovered the Litter Genie. Here’s how it works:

Follow the directions on the package to properly insert the bags in the Litter Genie. The litter Genie Comes with one refill. Additional refills can be purchased at Walmart. Each refill lasts up to 6 weeks (with one cat).  The Litter Genie fits perfectly into small spaces, like the area under my bathroom counter. The Litter Genie and Litter Pan

Scoop your litter as usual and place inside the Litter Genie (I will spare you the details of my cats’ used litter). The litter goes into the bag, and when you slide out the handle on the front, it falls to the bottom and is sealed off by an inner layer. This ends the spread of germs and odors, so you don’t have to worry about bringing the used litter to your garbage each time. Inside the Litter Genie #CollectiveBias #shop

    Nice! That is a slick solution to the litter box issues in my house. I hate cleaning mine… love how sleek it is. Reminds me of the Diaper Genie near my changing table.

    • Carrie Wells, Ed.D. says:

      Yes, just like the Diaper Genie, only smaller. I like how it fit right under my bathroom counter and took up little space.

  2. I’m new to the whole litter box thing (we just rescued a stray) and we’ve just started letting him stay in at night, so I finally picked up a litter box. I’ll be interested to see how it goes… I may need to grab one of these. I definitely don’t want to be scrambling to the trash with a baggie of kitty doo every day.

    • Carrie Wells, Ed.D. says:

      Aw, congrats on the new addition to your family! I loathe scooping the litter, but this really did make things easier.

  3. I have 3 cats. We just might need this. It’s on my list now!!

  4. I got 2 kitties in Sept and was doing the plastic shopping bag thing. Then I was browsing Target looking for cat toys and saw the Litter Genie. I was a little skeptical, esp because I thought I’d probably go through the cartridges pretty quickly with 2 cats, and that can add up. But I have to say I love it! My cartridges are lasting longer than they said, and the absence of odors around the litter box is really a plus. I’ve tried to stay on top of sales, but so far haven’t seen the cartridges on sale. Oh well-I still love it and think it’s worth the investment.

  5. Pretty interesting idea for dealing with the cat littler. Sounds like it might make the job a little easier.

  6. This is great! Thank you so much for sharing this. My greatest fear is that our house will smell like kitty litter! YIKES!

    • Carrie Wells, Ed.D. says:

      I agree – Even though I have pets, I don’t want it to smell like pets the moment someone enters my home.
