What black tank additive do you use: liquid or packet - preferred brand?

Found them while searching the Internet for information concerning "The Incredible Smell" that occupied my cabin. By the second day, I noticed a difference.

Save yourself some $$ and use this home brew most of the folks on the Forum use:
Equal parts of:
Water
PineSol
Liquid Calgon Water Softener
SuperClean

All these items are available at your local Wally World or on line at Amazon.

We put @ 6OZ in the black tank & 4OZ in the gray tank after dumping and "Prime" the black tank with @ 3 gallons of water.

If you have a black tank rinse, make sure you use it EVERY time you dump.

What ever is on sale in Walmart's RV section.

Bought some of the single use bottles last year, no odor issues to report with the blue or orange stuff from there.

Same for us. I think a lot of odor control has to do with keeping the tank as clean from build up as possible and using plenty of water.

I have switched from the GEO method to the blue streak system. So far so good

Totally agree, lots of water when I drain the tanks.
