Just purchased a ECO-Safe Toilet System for overnighters.
What products should I use and what quantities (ratios).
Cheaper the better.

Powdered bleach the more the better. I've found with my Eco safe when I get to the take out fill it with water till its above the poop and let it slosh around in the back of the truck or trailer on your drive home... Slides right out!

Overnighters=just water. two or more nights=pinesol. That is the frugal mans way to deal with it.

Beer 75%, burritos 20% and 5 percent corn. :)
Ya but about another 10% whiskey has to make it into that blend somewhere (but it won't come from the corn).


The blue stuff RV individual packets were designed to do the trick, and they do. One package and a half gallon of water to start, top it off with water and even add another packet whenever necessary. Drop it off at your local treatment plant, for a few bucks it comes back good as new.

Just overnighters? Contact the guy on Nrs gear swap with the $2 wag bags. No sense going through all that trouble cleaning out the shitter for a few poops.

If you feel bad about the waste you can always leave the bags in the parking lot of your favorite local Walmart. They have a vacuum machine that cleans the lot will shred the shit out of it

Wag bag for overnight/weekend trips. RV powder for weeklong trips. Have tried that sawdust decomposer stuff once and didn't like it. RV powder works and deodorizes as well. We've used it straight out of the packets, but have found that filling up a Mrs. Dash shaker with it works the best with our gamma bucket system. The holes in the shaker lid are nice and big, and if you keep it dry it won't clump. A sprinkle after each use and you're good.

Groover Tamer

It's kind of expensive, but a 1/2 of the little powder jar does a full eco-safe load, and the spritzer bottle lasts for much longer than two trips. It doesn't seem to make anything slide out any better (spray pam inside before use), but it is pretty amazing how the whole load, corn and all, just doesn't smell. Amazing chemistry involved.

Bleach actually worked well enough in my eco when we ran out of blue goo for the final round.

That said, I bought a bunch of the RB 7-something from Clavey as it was recommended by buddies. Blue goo seems to knock the odor down a bit better and this stuff was cheap compared to the Groover Tamer---which I love but is wicked expensive.

Some people do swear by PineSol as a solution as well. Does seem to help odors when I let it sit with some water in the tank after its been cleaned/emptied.

Best of luck and remember shit is most likely gonna smell like shit in 90+ degree heat no matter what you do.....so its always best to have another boatman carry the groover ;)

Is groover tamer the same as the sawdust stuff? It was a long time ago that the group I was with used something that looked like sawdust, and it was worthless for odor. It was supposed to help decompose the poo.

don't know anything about the sawdust stuff/method

Groover Tamer worked great for us on the Selway. Definitely kept the stench dow, much better than anything I had used up until then. We were consistently using both spray after every deposit. Other folks I know didn't like it as much during other trips but didn't spray but once a day.

Expensive as hell from NRS and why I haven't used it much. Knowing about the direct buy opportunity it may become the go-to option next year when my current stash of RB runs our or expires.

Done in my best Cliff Clavin impersonation "Well Normie, its a little know fact that the human body can't break down the shell on a kernel of corn. As the kernel moves through the body these little enzymes, I think they are called cornholers, anyway these cornholers remove the pulp from the inside of the kernel leaving just the shell. Corn is a good way to time how long it takes for food to travel through your body. Its like little tracers. In fact its also a little know fact that the idea of tracer bullets in airplanes was developed by a corn farmer in England in 1915 and first used in WWI."
