Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter

Date Tue, November 3 2015

With a claim that just 9 pounds of cat litter can last an entire thirty days, you better bet I’m interested! So I signed right up when Chewy offered me the chance to review Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter.

When the box arrived, it was so much lighter than typical cat litters. I was finished up a 20-pound box, if I recall correctly. Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter looks positively diminutive in comparison!

The size of the box isn’t the only thing that’s different. It opens differently, too. You might be familiar with Arm & Hammer cardboard boxes, which has a “door” to pour from the side. Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter uses an interesting corner spout that you pour at an angle. I find it a little awkward and think the spout is too small. There’s a lot of shaking to do to get the cat litter out of the box. There is a side handle that might help, but I didn’t find it especially helpful.

You can see the spout in use in the commercial below, which also shows the third (and fourth!) differences from traditional clay litter.

Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter is a thicker pink cat litter. Yes, I said pink! It’s like small woodchips or granite. In fact, the product description says it’s made from Attapulgite, “a unique and lightweight mineral, with a three-dimensional crystal structure with a large surface area to trap odor and moisture.”

Now, my cats didn’t mind the crystalline litter, and it is definitely lighter. But I’m not entirely sure how well it works to trap odor and moisture. Maybe not clumping urine is a bad idea, especially when it comes to boy cats, whose urine tends to smell more ammonia-like.

I definitely noticed the smell of urine just a week or so after I started using Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter. I added some more, and while the light scent helped for the first couple hours, it wasn’t enough. I eventually wound up dumping my entire litter box out to switch back to my normal clay cat litter. I didn’t make it an entire thirty days. It was half of that at best. I couldn’t handle it any longer!

I just don’t think Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter works for me. Perhaps because I have two boys. Most other reviews don’t mention it being less than optimum when dealing with odor control (it didn’t seem to do too hot of a job right after the boys went #2, either), but they do mention how dusty it is. And I mean, damn! The cloud of dust kicked up whenever I would pour Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter or scoop it was crazy.

There was one way in which Simple Solution 30-Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter worked quite well, however: it was super easy to scoop. The crystal particles easily slipped through my scooper, since I just ran out of sifting liners. Nevertheless, that’s not enough for me to justify the higher price of this poorer-peforming cat litter.

I was provided with this product to provide my honest opinion.
