I have a couple of tips & tricks
I'd like to share with y'all. If you have any, please tell us about them. Here goes . . .
1. For dog owners:
For years we used supermarket or Wal Mart plastic bags to pick up dog poop when we walked our 2 critters. Since we also used the bags for our trash (see next tip)they sometimes were in short supply.
Then I discovered diaper disposal bags! These are smaller versions of plastic shopping bags. They come in packages of 100 and are exclusively (as far as I know) found at Dollar Tree stores. How much does a box cost? Yep, $1.00. And, they are scented! I buy 5 boxes at a time.
I said above that we use plastic grocery bags for our daily trash. We use them because we found a plastic stand (I don't remember where) designed to hold a plastic shopping bag open specifically for trash. Go find one.
3. Black tank odor:
For years we used the blue stuff in powder form; one pouch per tank. I didn't particularly care for the perfume smell.
I began to think about the two septic tanks I had in my former home. As a result we now add about 1 ounce of Ridex
to the black tank after flushing the tank out. Since we started using Ridex there has been no smell of any kind from the black tank.
