I’m not exaggerating when I say that the Litter Genie is life-changing. Growing up with a cat, I never knew that something like this existed. But when I moved in with James in our apartment and we decided to get a cat, I spent a lot of time in the pet store looking for the best food, bed, litter box and treats for her. That’s when I stumbled upon the Litter Genie.

Since then, I’ve sung the praises of the ease and cleanliness of the product. It makes the whole issue of disposing of the cat’s waste so much easier and quicker. So how do you use the Litter Genie? It’s simple!

  1. Follow the directions provided to put together the product. This takes 30 seconds and involves clicking two pieces together and pulling out the trash bag from the refill.
  2. Scoop the clumps from the litter box with the scoop provided.
  3. Open the lid of the Litter Genie to drop in the clumps.
  4. Pull the handle to help seal in waste & odors
  5. Close the lid of the Litter Genie and you’re done!

The Litter Genie is essentially a place for the cat’s waste to be stored. So instead of having to take out the garbage constantly (or mix your cat’s waste in your regular, already stinky food garbage), you only need to empty it when the Genie is full. Of course, this depends on how many cats you have and how much waste they produce, but I find myself only needing the dump the Genie once or twice a month (their general guideline is that “waste is sealed away for up to 14 days for one cat). It’s amazing! And even when you open the lid, you don’t smell cat waste. The compact design and easy-carry handle make it great for small spaces (like my tiny apartment). It comes in neutral colors, too, so it doesn’t clash with your decor. Because I’m crazy and I worry about things like that.

  1. Hah, they’ve expanded their market — good for them! Back in the day when my children were little, it was all about the Diaper Genie — similar product for disposal of dirty baby diapers. It was a lifesaver!
