Downy Unstopables in Gray Water Tank

Has anyone ever used Downy Unstopables in their gray water tank? They are a very concentrated form of Downy. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them.

Limit the amount of grease you put down the kitchen sink and you won't need to add 'perfume' to the tank. If it smells bad, add a couple of oz. of Dawn to cut grease before your next long ride in the RV.

We always add a couple of gallons of water to each tank... and than add a scoop of OxiClean to each tank... on the last day heading home... we flush the black tank and add at least 5-6 gallons water.... add our OxiClean and than at the last stop before we get home... we dump that... usually very nasty... its our belief that the water, warming in the tank with the OxiClean does a good job in cleaning out the tank...

But by all means... do what you thinks works best for your...

The only thing we use in our black and gray tanks is Costco brand liquid Laundry detergent drop in pillows. I put 4 of the pillows in each 50 gallon tank dissolving them in the toilet and bathroom sink first. I normally brush the toilet detergent before dumping into the black tank. Never have any oder even in hot weather. We normally camp for 4 to 5 day without dumping either tank. I always keep both tank valves closed even when we have full hookups which isn't very often. I only dump my gray take when it almost full, the full tank dump helps clean out any food waste that gets in the tank.
