4. I have 4 cats, just one box, but every time one uses the box, I dip it out and wipe the used part

with a wet tissue.

It's easier now that I am retired, but when I worked (I just retired in June), I dipped their box first thing when I got home. I also wake up a couple of times most nights to use the bathroom, and if there's anything there, I dip it out.

I also wash the box out every week.

Just like dogs who learn to hold it while their humans are at work, my cats know I will clear out the box as soon as I am able to, so they hold it if they don't like what they smell in there. Sometimes by the time I get to it more than one cat has done something, but they seem to be willing to wait if it is too much for them to tolerate.

When I come home or get up at night, one or more cats will go to the box and meow, to let me know to hurry and dip it out. Then, as soon as I do, they use it.

If I am not there, a second and even a third will use the box if necessary, but if I am there they will wait in line until I have dipped out the previous cat's contribution!
