Besides the obvious, what else can you use cat litter for?

    Hi bankscottage - We use it for 2 things (we don't have cats).  First, we use it when it get's icy.  It's good for no slipping.  Second, we use it to get rid of old paint.  Pour some in a bucket along with the paint and it dries it up so it can go in the trash.

      Good points.  I've used it for both.  Cat litter may be the most useful item to have in your house after duct tape.

    Hi there!  Where ya been?  Or is it me whose been MIA?   I do have a cat......usually two, but I'm one down at the moment.......If you live where it snows, it's used to pour under your tires, for traction if you're stuck......also, pour it on oil spills in a garage or driveway, to soak it up....then sweep and toss.......And the 50# bag, can be thrown in your trunk for weight, in bad weather too.....not in front-wheel drives though.
    Of course...for these purposes...get the cheapest you can find.
    I buy the good stuff for my kitty's bathroom!

      Hi fpherj48.  I have been around just not as interactive.  Busy with my regular job.  Great answers.  Living in the north I have used litter as you suggest.  I always buy the cheapest and unscented.

    We use cat litter to absorb oil stains on concrete. Great for garages and driveways! Unscented clay litter is good for absorbing moisture, much like silica gel packets. Put a bit in old nylon stockings and tie a knot, then place them in damp basements and other areas that get musty.

      Great answer.  I have used it to get stains off of concrete but have never used it to absorb moisture in damp places.  I'll keep it in mind.  Thanks.
