I love to play around in my garden. Once Spring rolls around, I start cleaning up my garden beds, planting bulbs and just reveling in the beauty of the new life poking through the ground. It’s also the time when I start filling my pots and planters to brighten up the front porch. You’ll never believe my secret to keeping soil evenly moist!
The Secret to Keeping Soil Evenly Moist
It all started with the cat, my love – Remington.
It’s no secret that house cats use a litter box but what many people don’t know is that there are other uses for that litter, besides filling a cat’s litter box and masking their odors. In fact, planting with cat litter is actually a little known secret to keeping soil evenly moist and I’m going to show you how to do it!
You’ll need the following items/supplies:
- Potting soil
- Cat litter – I used Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze
Grab your shovel and put a scoop each of Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze and potting soil into your planter.
Then mix it up real good. Continue adding equal parts of Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze and potting soil until your planter is just over half full, making sure it’s evenly mixed throughout the planter.
Arrange the flowers in your planter, setting them together nice and tight for a full planter effect. There will be some small gaps and just fill those with equal parts of Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze and potting soil. Give it a good watering.
Set your planter on the steps to add some color, a side table or wherever you’d like a burst of beautiful flowers and enjoy!
Did you know that you can use cat litter to dry flowers too? Well you can and it’s super easy to do! Grab an air tight container and snip the flowers from the stems. Pour some Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze into the container, add a flower, cover with Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze and repeat until your container is full. Wait 7-10 days and you’ll have beautiful dried flowers!

Helping Animals Live Better Lives
Animals are a huge part of this world and many people keep animals like cats as pets. They nurture and love them as part of their families. But sadly, not all pets end up in loving homes and instead live as strays in our communities or end up in shelters. Shelter costs can be hefty and it takes a lot to help these cats and other animals in need. These places rely on donations and I was blessed to be able to help the Wisconsin Humane Society with a donation through this campaign. I’d like to encourage you to find a way to give back, whether it be monetary, food or even your time.
There are lots of other ways to use cat litter too. What are some things that you’d use Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze for besides in the cat box?
