We’re in Brittany and running out of blue toilet chemicals. Does anyone know where to buy some in France or know of an alternative to use?

Go to Aldi or Lidl and buy a bottle of bio laundry washing liquid.

When you get home, fit a SOG and then you will not need to add any chemicals to your cassette ever again. (y)

Is it easy to fit a SOG?
Very easy , come with instructions that are very easy to follow. Depends on your set up , you get a type that vents through the cassette locker door ( need to drill a hole on the door , a bit scary but done two of those with no problems) Other type vent through the floor or through the roof , I went for a through the floor vented one this time as I have an Elddis CV20 now and couldn’t fit the through the door option as cassette does not give clearance for the SOG fan. I have photos of how I did it I could send to you to give an idea of what’s involved, or look on SOG website to see some examples

Another benefit is that no-one will park next to you because of the stink.
Yet another myth …….big carbon filter eliminates the fumes …..😲
It’s the green bit in the photo 😉

Another urban myth. We've had SOGs on our last 4 motorhomes and never, ever had any niff evident around the van. As the vent is through the floor, nobody sees it and the very large carbon filter deals with any niff.

I forgot to take a spare bottle of toilet blue when I went in July.
I looked in Carrefour and they only sold Campingaz own version but it was an eye watering €23!
Fortunately, my brother in law brought a spare out with him the week later - £6 from Aldi - Blue Diamond.
As someone else has mentioned, I'd go to the supermarket and buy some bio liqui tabs and put one of those in and just remember to pack a toilet blue when you get home so it's ready for next time.
Have a great trip.

Why bother with toilet blue when bio liquid is good enough to deal with the smells and better than blue for some systems?

Or if you want to buy toilet fluid get green. We bought some Aldi blue by mistake it's still in the garage. The green is fine we usually have green fluid plus a little bio washing liquid a sort of poo cocktail!

I'm pretty sure the Aldi one still has formaldehyde in.
It does. But we're not drinking it.
Pretty much most domestic cleaning products and building products has it in.
As do hair straighteners and other products regularly used.
The quantity going into a toilet cassette is only going to become harmful if ingested or washed with or inhaled over a period of time with limited oxygen.

Just hope not to be downwind of a SOG equipped van . . . :)
Probably better to comment on something if you actually know how it works , if you’ve been downwind of a smelly van it’s not a SOG equipped one.

You won't find anything labelled "bio" in France (if referring to washing products.)
