    We have used it before too. We had a person in the ICU that had a lot of bad wounds and one of my coworkers brought in kitty litter and it did the trick. Well it had a funny smell to the room but at least you could go in there without a mask.

    we use a spray of diluted peppermint oil. it works really, really well.

    i have seen kitty litter under the bed. when i was in nursing school i had a pt with gangrene and the MD ordered kitty litter. we just put some in a pt basin and placed it under the bed. it really does help absorb the smell.
    We had peppermint oil too but they took it off the floors. It was wonderful.

    Baking soda is inexpensive and odorless too.

    I thought this was going to be a thread about someone selling kittens out of their room now.

    We do peppermint oil as well. Works really well.

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing! I can just see Central Supply saying "are you serious??"

    I honestly didn't imagine this would work, but so many of you have agreed. I always thought it only worked if the nasty stuff was IN the litter. And since I've never found a litter for my cats that's made me 100% happy, I didn't think it'd work at all. Go figure.

    Not to be a nerd, but would you need an MSDS sheet for kitty litter?
