Dave - great idea. Ironically, I have a small ozone generator, but it never crossed my mind to use it.

I have had the Roo bunks opened up for a week now, and the smell is slowly fading. Slowly...

Try cotton balls with vanilla extract on them, charcoal bricketts also helps.

ozone generator is a great idea, have to remember that one. I had a friend that worked at a huge used car lot for years and they often used small 12v ozone generators in cars to kill odors.

I'm an ER nurse by trade. We have some amazingly stinky patients and medical problems daily. Some scents linger. We have found that dry coffee grounds (unused) absorbs smells like it's nobody's business. Buy a couple lbs of cheap coffee and put it out in the paper coffee filters around the inside of your pop up. Smell should be gone in a day. Also, I'd clean the tent ends really good and scotch guard them to create a barrier for future trips...

Later,
Brian

I tried the coffee ground trick. I must say the campfire smell has been greatly reduced inside, but now I feel like I'm camping in a Starbucks. Which is by no means a bad thing lol.

Good tip, and welcome to the forum!

The Roo is now in hibernation, but I put a bunch of lavender dryer sheets throughout to (hopefully) repel any mice, and when I went in to check things the other day, it smelled great in there! I plan to keep the rest of the box in there to freshen it up throughout the season next year.
