    Try Sainsburys cheapest bio laundry powder. I use a 1 cup baking measure and there is never any smell. When emptying I can just smell laundry powder.

    As a newbie with a new van and reading many many threads decided not to risk it. We have used dometiq new tablets ( which admittedly look like dishwasher tablets) - not a single smell, not even a chemical clean one. Will be sticking with them

    Our soon to be new (to us) van has a sog system fitted. Do you need to put anything in the cassette with this system?

    Yes, unless you have a strong stomach in my experience. There should be no smell during normal use as the fan draws any smell away. The problem for me came when you have to empty it!

    I use Tesco biological washing liquid. Two capfuls is ideal, especially when it is hot, but try one capful first and see how you get on.

    Lidi sell Formil tablets and liquid which many MH's find works well, and that's what we use, and it's available all over Europe.

    Just so I fully understand - people use cheap bio washing tabs/liquids in the loo? Do you then just flush with plain old water? Do you put a couple of litres of water in with the tab/liquid to start it off or something?

    The loo cartridge in our van is so horrible and old that I have ordered a new replacement. Should I start doing this now, from new. Does it really not smell at all?! Amazing!

    the formaldehyde kills the bacteria in our septic tank, adding a massive bill every year. It should be banned.

    that's why when on sites with tanks we only use washing powder and blue flush if we can empty regular
    when out on the road we find that empting twice a day is not possible so will use the blue stuff when we only can empty every second or third day

    The blue Thetford stuff doesn't use formaldehyde anymore, and I doubt a lot of the other ones do either.

    Assuming that the liquid acts as a deodorant, coupled with a SOG (thinking about one), does that give the best of both worlds?
