The Benefits of Low Dust Cat Litter

Share:Facebook IconTwitter IconPinterest IconEmail Icon

How much time goes into choosing the right kitty litter? There's clumping litter , non- clumping litter, low dust, natural litter like wood-based and more. 

PrettyLitter’s unique crystal kitty litter produces a minimal amount of dust. But why is this so important? And why, as consumers, are we encouraged to go for the dust-free kitty litter, rather than the other options?

Low Dust Cat Litter Is Better for People with Allergies

It’s important to look at the best litter option for your cat, and what’s best for your family. If you or your family suffer from nasal allergies, you may find that anything that produces large amounts of dust can be an irritant. A dusty cat litter tray is no exception.

In summer, your home is often your haven from pollen and other outdoor allergens. It’s pretty stressful if you come home to a dusty environment that leaves you sneezing just as much as being outdoors does!

By reducing the presence of cat litter dust, you are also helping to minimize irritation and allergens that can potentially cause harm to your kitty.

Low Dust Cat Litter Is Cleaner

This point seems pretty obvious; less dust means a cleaner home! Not just because of the dust floating around the atmosphere though. When cats visit the litter pan, the cat’s paws pick up the dust and track a fine layer of dust (and possibly other nasties) all around your home. The dustier the cat litter, the more your carpets and furniture are getting a new and unwanted coating from even a fairly tidy cat.


Crystal litter such as PrettyLitter silica gel litter helps minimize a mess like this, because there are no huge clay clumps to scrape out, it’s low dust and cleaning the litter pan using a variety of cat litter box cleaning hacks is a breeze tooso it's kinder to your back!

Low dust cat litter is the way forward for your precious cats and your family, especially if you own multiple cats.
