It is very dry, and can't really obtain the odors. After my cat finish the work, the whole bathroom can smell it. Sure it can contain the liquid, but nothing else it can do. I can't feel the advantage of this product to clumping litter. Previously, I go for this product, because the same kind of pinewood litter run out in K-mart. Now, i think either i need go back to K-mart pinewood, or i need go with clumping litter, due to the smell problem.
