I have been told there are several recieps for toilet chemicals that one can make ones self. The main ingredients i'm told are borax & concentrated disenfectant. Can one of the Toilet litterate forumites shed any light on this delicate subject?

We use the stuff in the white bottle from the camping shop as it's supposed to be safe for the enviroment.

Maybe if you can mix it yourself, you could have it with ice, save adding it to the toilet seperate....8-)

May make for a more pleasant "aroma" while in the car travelling too, save winding the window down.....8-)))

Why would you want to?

The cost of the stuff isnt outrageous, you dont have to worry about exposure/storage/purchasing of chemicals and the formula constituents that you list are not what would be classed as 'environmentally friendly' as pointed out in previous reply.

Do you know what the 'home brew' versions do to the chemical toilet itself?

At least with the 'store bought' stuff you have some idea of its compatability with your toilet.

Hi Rick

We have used a make up toilet chemical for quite a while now and it works as good as a bought one. The ingredients are: 1 cup of Borax desolved, 1 cup of Pine o Clean and 1 cup of Cloudy Ammona all mixed together in 5 litres of water.Works as good as anything you can buy and a lot cheaper as well.

Hi Phil,
I'm interested in your chemical mix for toilets. How much do you put in a normal sized Porto Potti and is borax easily available?
