Family Recipe: Black Tank Treatment

January 17, 2019by Mike Mayleben

This is a homemade black tank treatment recipe that acts as a deodorant for your black water tank. You can make this with household chemicals to provide a better solution to your stinky black tank.

So back in 2014, my grandma (who we called Nanny), gave me a recipe that her and my PaPaw used when they spent the winters down in Florida in their RV. Nanny would make this to save money and because it did a better job keeping the bathroom smelling pretty when the toilet was flushed. Below is the hand written letter she wrote me to pass this recipe on.
