Fresh Step® Extreme Odor Control CarbonPLUS Unscented Scoopable Cat Liiter
Great odor control but way too dusty
I was looking for a litter with better odor control and more affordable than what I was using. The unscented extreme scoopable has amazing odor control. You never smell urine, feces, or the smell of litter, even if the litterboxes haven't been cleaned for a couple days. It also clumps great. Unfortunately, it is incredibly dusty. I have 4 cats and 5 litterboxes, and when I filled the boxes my entire living room would have a cloud of dust in it and once it settled I had a film on my wood furniture. The cats sneeze like crazy, 3 of my cats have started having breathing issues since switching to this litter, and the fourth cat is having eye issues, all because of the amount of dust in the litter. As a result, I'll be switching back to my old litter. It's a shame, Fresh Step would be perfect if not for the excessive dust.I can't recommend this litter because of how it has affected my cats, but if your cats don't react to dust, this would be a great litter for you.

Awesome for the Asthmatic Family
This is a fantastic litter! My family loves it even more because it is unscented and the odor control power is THE BEST! Our only disappointment is that this is not product is NOT AVAILABLE in 40 pound bundles as is the scented extreme counterpart. Let's make that happen!

Perfect for Condo/Apartment Dwelling.
We have two cats in our condominium, and we've tried many litters over the years, but none with the excellent odor-controlling results we get from Fresh Step. As condo dwellers, it's important for us to have a litter that is efficient at eliminating odors quickly, is highly absorbent, clumps well, and has no overpowering scent. The Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control Unscented Litter does all of this better than any other litter we've tried so far. The issues we've had with it are the awful box, dust and tracking. One of our kitties has asthma, so we may be forced to stop using this litter, though she seems okay using it currently. We hope Fresh Step comes out with a low dust version! As for what our kitties think... they seem to like it and act uncomfortable about any other sort of litter in their tray, when their humans want to compare products! We rarely ever use anything other than Fresh Step now and have been using it consistently for several years. Our home votes this litter as the best we've had so far. We'd give it 5 paws if it had more manageable packaging and less dust.

NOT UNSCENTED, VERY DUSTY
If I could, I'd give this product no stars for lack of truth in packaging. Sure, it clumps. I'll give it that. But the scent is sickeningly strong. I could smell it in my hair after pouring it into the cat box! I don't know how the maker can possibly market this product as unscented. And the amount of dust it makes, especially considering the fact that we have an enclosed litter box, is disturbing. I don't want my cat inhaling that dust, nor do i want her and my house to smell like bath powder from the '50s.
If you are looking for a truly unscented cat litter that clumps well, hold down odor, isn't too dusty, I recommend Ever Clean Unscented. Sure, it costs more but it's worth it, especially if you live in a small home like we do.
