    We've run out of the stuff we brought and can't find any more. There's no camping shops here.
    Been told that we can use bio washing powder but none of the labels show them as bio ???

    Any help or ideas?

    TIA :)

    if you can find a Lidl (or Aldi) they will have them....
    Mercadona may have them too....

    you dont need it just dont put anything other than toilet waste in . thats the best way. and dont wash the inside of cassette out let bacteria work for you. takes awhile but it works .

    Maybe time to consider a SOG?
    No chemicals
    No smells

    Thanks to Ambilkate??? we have gone onto Fabric Conditioner from Lidl.
    £1.99 in the UK. €1.99 in France.
    As she said when telling me, It doesn't get a chance to work (Blue) in the three days you have it in the cassette before you empty it.
    The fabric con. does kill the smell. We use two plus capfuls and it does the trick.

    Normally Green cap = Bio, Blue cap= non bio, Lidl & Aldi follow this convention.

    Yes, I looked for bio washing liquid in Spain, too, and couldn't find any in Aldi. Lidl or Mercadona. I did find some Ariel, though, which I know is bio. So I bought some of that.
    Think I might try the fabric conditioner idea next time.

    I seem to remember reading on here that all Spanish washing liquids were bio unless stated otherwise?
    We use 2 caps of washing liquid and 1 cap Calgon in our 170 litre black tank.

    Try Vanish or any similar oxi product - have been using it for years without a problem.
