Cleaning Your Litter-Robot for Odour Control

Created by Ken MacCormick, Modified on Fri, 10 Jun 2022 at 12:59 AM by Ken MacCormick

We recommend cleaning the globe with a mild soap such as dish-washing detergent.  We do not encourage using bleach products on the unit due to bleach being very corrosive to any metal components.

There are no electronics in the globe, so you can soak it in a tub or hose it down. We like to use a soft toilet brush to easily access the inside of the globe. Once you're finished cleaning the globe, be sure that it is completely dry before adding litter. If it is not dry, the litter will clump prematurely and may get clogged in the ports or litter pocket.

You may also want to try changing the carbon filter. The carbon filter is designed to contain odour within the drawer. Replacement carbon filters may be ordered on our website by following this link: Litter Robot Accessories.

To learn more about replacing the carbon filter, please see the step by step instructions here:

Some other cleaning suggestions include using garbage bags with a deodorant impregnated in the plastic. We have also been told that dryer sheets below the drawer liner helps keep odour down. Other users have mixed baking soda in with their litter and/or liners. This helps absorb any moisture and reduce excess odours.

Furthermore, if you notice that you cannot get rid of the odour, no matter how hard you try, your feline friend may not be feeling well. If your cat has unusual bowel movements, you should check her environment (food, water, etc.) for any changes. If she seems to be ill, take her to a veterinarian for medical assistance.

Please keep in mind that we are passing along suggestions provided by our customers. We do not endorse any of these products, nor are we affiliated with the companies that produce the products.
