Toilets, we all need ‘em but whether we can maintain them properly is another thing altogether, just check out the bog in a dodgy service station to see what I mean.

When you’re on the road it’s important you are able to keep the toilet in your caravan/motorhome clean and hygienic for a number of reasons, one to promote cleanliness and hygiene within your home on two/four wheels and secondly to reduce/eliminate lingering smells which may start to make themselves known as the days wear on.

It’s incredibly important to invest in the right chemicals to keep these problems at bay and ensure your toilet is running at optimal efficiency at all times so that you’re not having to use a bucket when things get a bit tricky.

There are many products on the market for your toilet however deciding which ones are the best for you is where things get rather tricky, thankfully we are here to help.

A majorly important factor is toilet roll, you need to buy toilet roll that is specifically designed to prevent clogging of the toilet when you have an extra messy session, thankfully there are many great products about, Thetford’s very own Aqua Soft toilet roll has been designed to dissolve in the waste tank after use and formulated to flush easy to save on any awkward moments.

A quick reminder that if you are opting to use Moist Toilet Wipes alongside toilet roll, please do not flush these down your toilet, instead put them into a disposable bag and dispose of these in a bin.

In your quest for chemicals for use with your toilet you most likely will have come across an array of different coloured liquids advertised as caravan toilet chemicals; these chemicals are colour coded as so:

  • Blue/green chemicals are used for breaking down waste matter in the bowl and keeping the waste tank clean.
