Groover tamer or other?

What does everyone use in their groovers? I'm aware of groover tamer, but I'm tempted to use an RV product, but I'm not sure that would make the issue better, or worse.

Watch out for RV products. Anything that causes a "reaction" may not be suitable for a closed box. As in it could develop pressure.

I've never used powdered bleach, but that sounds good.

I remember Groover tamer working well, but its like 20 bucks a tank or something that seemed excessive.

I use the RV blue goo, no poo-canos yet... A little RV goo helps every morning before it's put away, doesnt eleiminate the stank, but it work for a 10 day desert trip, even after the 10th day it wasn't a dry heaving affair.

I have the RV place pump it out for $10, before hand I'll fill it full of water and a little bleach, and put it in the back of the truck for a few days, all the driving around seems to liquefy things and when it gets pumped out doesnt leave little surprise in the corner.

Hydrated lime. cheap at your local garden center works well...doesn't make it smell like roses, but cheap. then fill with some water and a little bleach on the last day of your trip (makes the poo rehydrate so that you can dump it easier)

I've used the blue stuff from RV stores for 10 years. No problems whatsoever, and much better odor control than groover tamer.

I have seen kitty litter used a few times and it works out really well for oder control, not sure about "dumpability" though...
