    Use BIO washing machine liquid. One cap for 'number ones', two caps for 'number 2s'. It wont work if you use non-bio. (y)

    Do Bio tabs or liquids do anything to the “contents” of the cassette or just cover the smell. I have only ever use proprietary products and the contents are always “dealt” with before emptying is required. If these other products work, then a change is on the horizon.(y)

    I know a great deal of motorhomers swear by using washing liquid/tabs but I'm afraid I wasn't convinced. We gave it a try last summer and I hated emptying the cassette! Even using fragranced bio liquid didn't help. Needless to say I went back to using Thetford sachets. Not the cheapest option but in my opinion the best. The loo has to be dealt with so I'd rather pay a little more and at least have a more pleasant experience!

    We have used BIO sachets or liquid from multiple manufacturers from day one and have never had a problem with emptying the cassette. It only takes a few days to work out the dosage that works best for you,

    likewise.. tried it and couldn't stand the smell when emptying ...

    I use the Thetford Blue liquid ... also have a SOG... belts and braces

    can't see the point of penny-pinching

    Bio liquid for us. I'm allergic to something in the elsan and thetford stuff, even the smell of it gives me a migraine.

    Dosage - a couple of capfuls to start with a cupful of water and as a capful when you think you need to. If we are travelling the cassette contents are liquid when emptied and don't smell bad. If we are on a site I empty the cassette every day and then there are, ahem, lumps :)

    Just found an old bottle and yes it does refer to 'ENZIMES' followed by some VERY long words.
    Will check on others some time.
