About Fresh Step Cat Litter

A Cleaner Litter for a Better Smelling House

Fresh Step created a litter for every type of kitty imaginable, and they're all designed to handle the strongest litter box smells to keep your house odor-free. With tight-clumping scoopable options, low-maintenance crystals, great-smelling scented litter and even unscented for sensitive noses, your cat's litter box will stay fresh each time she steps in, and after she jumps out, too.

One Step Fresher

How do you get 10-day odor control that keeps fighting lingering litter box smells? Take the power of Fresh Step and add the pleasing scent of Febreeze, including the popular Aloha fragrance, for the next level of freshness. Both Fresh Step Multi-Cat and Extreme Scented Cat Litter are low-dust formulas that feature ClumpLock technology for tighter, easy-to-scoop clumps. Multi-Cat is perfect for more than one kitty, and Extreme uses antimicrobial agents to stop the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Fragrance-Free Formula

Fresh Step Multiple Cat unscented cat litter works naturally to eliminate odors. It combines activated carbon and plant extracts for a scoopable clay litter that takes a more natural approach to litter box woes. Carbon works nonstop to trap the odors, while plant extracts quickly neutralize them—all without overpowering perfumes or dyes.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Fresh Step Clay Cat Litter requires less scooping time, and it's made to handle even the smelliest messes. Compared to other non-clumping clay litters, you'll need less to get the same odor-fighting benefits. Offensive odors are eliminated using CarbonPLUS technology to keep the litter fresher longer. Just 35 pounds equals 50 pounds of similar non-clumping clay litters, which means you get more use out of each bag.

Fresh Step Crystals Cat Litter

Crystals look nicer in the litter box, and they absorb moisture on contact—five times more efficiently than the leading clay litter. Fresh Step Crystals Cat Litter requires the least amount of daily upkeep, because you only need to scoop out solid waste, not huge clumps. It lasts up to a month and minimizes the amount of dust to almost nothing. The smooth crystals are soft on the paws and lightweight in the bag for easier carrying.

They're committed to the happiness of pet parents and cats, which is why they created a range of products made to suit every household's needs.

Formula change mid-2023? NOT a dust issue that’s fine - but does NOT cover urine smell after a few days!?!? Was the perfect unscented clumping litter for 10 days — until a month ago!? Did my cat change, or??

Is Fresh Step Simply Unscented dust free?
Answer by ChewyAug 31, 2017
This is a low dust formula.

How often should this litter be changed?
Answer by ChewyAug 29, 2018
How frequently the litter needs changing will vary and depend on how many cats are using it, how frequently it is scooped and how much the cats go to the bathroom.

what are the ingredients in this litter
Answer by ChewySep 07, 2018
The ingredients in this litter are proprietary. However, it's free of perfumes and dyes for sensitive noses. It also contains agents to help stop the growth and spreading of odor-causing bacteria.

ALL DUST! Horrible litter.

The room where I keep my cat box is literally covered in a thick layer of dust. The room has become unusable, that's how bad it is. Not to mention cats have to breathe this stuff in any time they dig?! I have a cat with urinary issues and I'm absolutely terrified to change his litter, and I'm doing it today. That's how seriously horrible this is. Oh, and this litter tracks everywhere. I'm having to sweep the area twice a day. It's criminal to label this product "dust-free". It's ALL DUST.

Formula Change?

This used to be extremely dust free as advertised but my most recent orders have been some of the dustiest litter I've ever used. I'm not sure what changed but I won't be buying it anymore after using it for over a year. (I do like that the pee clumps aren't super sticky to the sides but they do still stick some.)

99.9% dust-free is not true

This product advertises itself as 99.9% dust free and yet my entire bed room fills up with litter dust all over the place. The clumping is fine. The smell factor is average. I've used litters in the past that didn't advertise itself as 99.9% dust-free and had way less dust in the air filling the room. This product should advertise themselves as 90% dust-free.

Was not so much

I used Fresh Step Clean Paws unscented for years. It was discontinued in the 4 pack size, so I switched to this litter. The dust is AWFUL. It coats everything, and every time you scoop, there is a huge cloud of dust. Still works well in terms of odor control and tight clumping. The clean paws was practically dust free, maybe because of the larger granules? I'm switching back to that, but it'll be more expensive since I have 4 cats.

Great litter

This is the best litter I have bought so far. It's the carbon that helps with the odor and I find I don't have to change the litter so often. We have 2 cats and I change it about every 3 weeks to 1 month, but always scoop daily. It's easier for us to handle these smaller bags.

Clumps better than I expected

I was using another Fresh Step product that didn't clump as much as well as thus product. Even though we have a sifter litter box with 3 cats we need to scoop the box more often.

formula change?

This used to be super dust free and low tracking. Now I can barely breathe when I change the litter box. I’m probably going to have to switch. Super disappointed!

Very dusty, not as advertised.

I liked the Clean paws unscented. I can't find it in the 4 bags, so I switched to this. Works good on the odor but very dusty, may have to get Clean paws in the box.
