Over the past few weeks, we haven’t been able to escape the ads for Arm & Hammer’s new litter, SLIDE. We’ve heard them on the radio, tv, and online. We also started to have some clients ask us if we tried out the new litter. Of course, we were happy to give it a try and share with you what we liked, what we didn’t like, and if we buy Arm & Hammer SLIDE again.
We purchased Arm & Hammer SLIDE at our local pet store, and it was priced at $14.95 for the 28 lb option. This price point puts it right in line with Arm & Hammer’s other litter offerings. Arm & Hammer offers a 7 day odor challenge with most of their litter so we never hesitate in giving them a try!
We started our SLIDE challenge with a fresh, and completely clean, litter box. After adding the recommended amount of litter, it was time for our 3 cats (Yogi, Zoey, and Mali) to do their thing.
At the end of the first day it was time for our first litter cleaning. As expected, the litter smelled fresh and the scooping was easy. The one thing we were really interested in was the corner of the litter boxes.
Like most cats, ours like to pee in the corners and typically it’s very hard to keep those areas clean without a ton of digging. Arm and Hammer SLIDE seemed to stick much less to those corners and required less work in keeping them clean.
Over the next week, we continued to be very happy with the performance of SLIDE. Most importantly, we still didn’t have any noticeable odors in the room we keep the litter box even after a week of use by 3 cats.
The clumping also continued to be very effective after a week of use. The litter also continued to “slide” out of the litter box without too much work.
Overall, we think Arm & Hammer nailed it with SLIDE. It continues to be one of our favorite litters, and we will continue buying it as long as they keep it competitively priced!
