About a week ago we went camping. It was our last camping “hurrah” before we winterized the camper and put her up for the winter.
Please note: I use the term “we” very loosely.
Also note: Before I lived in “the North” I had never used the term “winterized” before. As in, ever.
Also, also note: I’m quite proud I can use the word “winterized” correctly in a sentence, no matter how much it pains my Texas family.
Remind me to tell you sometime how when we first got married and were living in Wisconsin, Lazy Dad tricked me into believing that there was such a thing as “winter air” for car tires.
It shows my ignorance of winter terms and winter in general like non other.
It also shows where the honeymoon came to an abrupt stop in our marriage.
But I’ve digressed.
Where was I?
Oh that’s right, camping.
So we went camping in the cool fall weather and changing leaves.
Not that these pictures actually show any of that, so use your imagination.
We were right near Lake Erie. Which is the dirtiest of the Great Lakes, in case you didn’t know.
The kids built forts and we had lots of fun.
But that’s not actually what I wanted to tell you about today.
(Yes, I’ve brought you here under false pretenses.)
Remember when I told you about Natural House? And how cool these new natural probiotic cleaners are for your home? Well guess what?
They also ROCK in a camper.
I brought this line up of bad boys with me because, well, we have this little problem in our camper.
Namely, the toilet stinks.
As in, a lot.
Seriously, by day 2 when we go camping we have to keep the door shut to the camper’s bathroom because of the smell. And just imagine with me, that if the door has to be shut because of the smell, how bad the smell is when you actually go in and open the lid to the toilet.
Aren’t you so glad you read this blog?
Now that I’ve made you lose your appetite for the day (you’re welcome) let’s move on…
So I took my Natural House fellas with me to REALLLLLLY put them to the test. Especially flushy. Which is not only safe for septic lines and tanks and such, it’s GOOD for them.
(if you’ve forgotten how Natural House products work, watch this super cute 2 minute video that explains it perfectly)
So I held my breath and away I went to do the job.
I threw one packet in, poured a little bit of water over it and watched it foam up!
Foam is good with Natural House products. VERY good. The foam releases the probiotics that keep killing germs and smells for a week!
After I let it foam up for a little while I flushed the foam down and let it do it’s work down in the holding tank.
I have to say I was skeptical Flushy would take care of the smell. I mean, this is a camper, not a septic system in a house! I did notice an immediate improvement, but come on, surely the smell would just get worse like it always does.
BUT IT DIDN’T.
In fact, it continued to get better.
There was NO SMELL the entire time we camped! TRUE. STORY.
I was blown away! We left the bathroom door open the whole time! When you lifted the toilet seat to, you know, do your business? There was no smell! I even lifted the seat and sniffed real hard to see if I was missing anything. Nope!
I feel forever indebted to Flushy!!! I will NEVER camp without it!
I was so happy over the results of Flushy that I broke out Sinky next.
I put a packet of Sinky in the bathroom sink and the kitchen sink to get the pipes moving and kill all the nasty germs.
I let the water run on the packet for about a second to get it foaming.
Then I’d run a little more water on it if I saw more powder that hadn’t foamed yet.
Check out the foam y’all!
After it foamed for a while I ran the water to flush all that probiotic goodness down the drain so it could work on the pipes. We didn’t have a single odor or problem with the drains on our trip! Woo-hooo!
As I was letting Sinky do it’s thang, I was cleaning out the cabinets in the kitchen. GUESS WHAT I HAPPENED UPON???
Potatoes and onions that had been sitting under the stove just rotting since July. *gag* ACK!
I threw them out the door, but there were teeny little bugs, a bunch of brown gunk and a smell left behind. AHHHH!
That’s when I had a stroke of genius! I whipped out Trashy.
See the nasty brown stuff?!?! *gag*
I sprayed Trashy all over it and let it sit and do it’s thang for about 5-10 minutes.
Then I sprayed Trashy one more time over it and wiped the area down.
I was SHOCKED when the nasty, caked on, brown gunk wiped right up!
Seriously y’all. I hardly even scrubbed, it wiped up so easily! And thanks to Trashy there was NO SMELL and NO TEENY LITTLE BUGS!
So. If you thought my review of Natural House when I used it in my home was impressive, YOU SHOULD BE EVEN MORE IMPRESSED NOW!
I know I was. I’ll be stocking Natural House products in my camper every year! And you should too!
Buy Trashy Sinky & Flushy on Amazon! They’re only $4.99 each and come in a 30 day supply! Woot! Or you can buy them on Natural House’s website. Or you can let Natural House know you want these in a store near you!
And if you know any campers or RV’ers, send them this blog post! Believe me, they’ll thank you for it!
Thank you to Natural House for providing me with Trashy, Sinky and Flushy for review. No other compensation was received for this post and the opinions expressed are my own honest thoughts and experiences with these products.
