Litter Genie

The Litter Genie Pail upholds its brand’s standards in keeping homes odor-free. The pail can hold up to two weeks of one cat’s litter, so you wouldn’t have to keep disposing of it in the trash. The odor barrier technology of the refill bag’s seven layers also ensures that none of the litter’s odor seeps out to make your house a literal stink hole.

Not only does it reduce the odors, it also keeps the germs from your cat’s litter locked in. The slick silver color of this pail ensures that it will look good anywhere you put it.


Plus, the pail’s really compact so you can practically put it anywhere in the house and not worry about it taking up too much space. In three easy steps, you can experience the benefits of owning a Litter Genie pail in your house. One cartridge lasts for about two months (for one cat), but refills are available for sale too.

Why I Love It:

  • Works really well, no more eye-watering odors
  • Comes at a reasonable price
  • It’s practically as easy as scoop, dump, pull the slide, and the litter (as well as the scent and germs) are sealed away!
  • Refills are easy to insert
  • All members of the family, young and old, can quickly learn how to use it (and no one will be annoyed about it because it doesn’t stink)
  • Also keeps your home looking and smelling nice

Litter Genie Plus

Just when you thought that the Litter Genie couldn’t get any better, the Litter Genie Plus shows up. Now it has all the features of the standard Litter Genie and more.
This pail has added built-in antimicrobial protection to reduce the odors caused by bacteria. While the standard Litter Genie is available in a pretty awesome silver, the Litter Genie Plus is available in three other colors: navy, espresso, and black.
Another great thing about the Litter Genie Plus is that its refill cartridge can last up to 30% longer than the standard size refills of the Litter Genie. Like the standard pail, this one also comes with a scooper to help ease up the cleaning of your cat’s litter.

Why I Love It:

  • Super easy and convenient initial setup
  • It has an easy carry handle so that you can bring it to all the litterbox spots in your home with ease
  • Hygienically seals in litter clumps and odor
  • Helps reduce trips to the trash
  • Help keeps home fresh and clean, and I don’t just mean with the smells
  • More colors to choose from!
  • Quick cleanup allows for more time spent playing with pets

Litter Genie vs. Litter Genie Plus

At a quick glance, the Litter Genie and the Litter Genie Plus may seem alike. But apart from the key features, there are also differences that can make or break your decision on which of the two to buy. First of all, the Litter Genie Plus comes in more colors than the Litter Genie. So if silver isn’t your color or does not fit in well with your home décor, then choose from black, espresso, and navy.
Secondly, Litter Genie Plus ups its game with built-in antimicrobial properties to reduce the odors caused by bacteria from the litter. Lastly, Litter Genie Plus’s refill cartridge lasts 30% longer than the standard refills. Either way, you’re sure that you will be getting only the best and the most scent-less experience from the Litter Genie brand.

    I just got a new kitty after not having one for six years ( how did I go so long!) so went and bought all the new things. Litter Genie is the best! Because it is so convenient and right beside her cat box, I can scoop almost every time she goes. No smells! It is awesome. One refill lasted me two and 1/2 months and I empty every week when my trash co is picking up. I found folding over and using a small zip tie uses less than tying. My only other suggestion is to change color or put some sort of marking as it is coming to end of refill. But I give this product 5 big stars!
