    Thanks for all those who answered my previous question. Here is another silly one!

    I am confused about what toilet fluid I can use in France. I have lots of Blue stuff (bought lots on Halford's special offer here a while back). Can I use it in France or do I have to use Green only please? I am happy to "get away with it" if that is possible.

    I know some of you do not use any at all, but my wife has a nose like a bloodhound (no, not large or wrinkly), so that is simply not on at the moment. I have my orders!!

    the last 3 years i have used toilet fluid of the "Blue" variety while in France, never gave it a second thought :Doh: until i read a thread a week or so ago..:Blush: no one told me otherwise while emptying the cassette :RollEyes:

    would also be interested to know the true answer :Eeek:

    cant see any reason why you cant use blue anywhere, unless the site rules prohibit the use....but then, who would know but you....its all the same colour once the cassette is full....and it aint blue or green. :RollEyes:

    Pappajohn. I, like Phill, saw a thread on here a week or two ago which suggested that Blue was no longer allowed in France. Can't find it now. So was trying to get definative answr. What do others use in France?

    We have always used Thetford Organic Blue which does not contain Formaldehyde,so,suitable everywhere.

    I haven't seen anything in France that prohibits blue fluid, but I rarely go to anything but aires. I use blue fluid and also bio washing liquid which seems to work if you put enough in.
    But I have never noticed anyone watching me when I empty the cassette to see what's in it!

    My parents have always used the blue stuff since they have started caravaning with a portable toilet which was at least 20 years ago , and I can't remember having heard of any rule about it in France. I would not bother a second unless, as previously said, it is a site rule. In any case it all goes in the same hole, whatever they say! It is not because you empty your cassette in a special place that it goes in a special hole different from the normal toilets.

    And .... I am like your wife ... I get very easily sick with bad smells , whatever they are!:Sad:
