At Unique Camping + Marine, we believe that being completely transparent is the best policy (especially when many other brands who sell RV holding tank treatments routinely try to hide how dangerous their products are, or make erroneous claims about being "Organic").
Well, here's the honest truth - Tank Odor Eliminator uses ingredients that are less-safe for people, animals, and the environment than our traditional probiotic-based treatments, like RV Digest-It. That means that, though it is VERY good at eliminating odors, it should be used with some slight caution. We recommend that you avoid getting the powder on your skin, in your eyes, or inhaling it - which is why we package it in a safe drop-in pod and not in a scoop-able powder.
Now, understand, this product isn't VERY dangerous. It just comes with some precautions - like the majority of cleaning products do. We just know that our customers have come to expect Unique to be a leader in safe products and we want to be very transparent with you about this product. So, use it without fear! It's packaged in a way that makes it 100% good to go! But, also know that if you are a safety-conscious, eco-crusader, you shouldn't be using this product as your regular treatment. RV Digest-It is the perfect treatment for you!
One last thing... it's important to understand that not all companies believe in transparency like we do and unfortunately, there are numerous manufacturers who make unfounded claims of having safe, "organic" holding tank treatments. These offenders are often using a technique called "green-washing" where they intentionally (or unintentionally) downplay the dangerous aspects of their products to trick the consumer into believing that their products are safer than they actually are. We aren't saying that all manufacturers do this. We just suggest you look deeper into claims of "organic", "natural", and "safe". Are they disclosing what's in these products? Is there an organization that is validating their claims of being organic? Do their SDS sheets have warnings on them?

At Unique, we believe in transparency and seek to provide you with the most effective safe products and honest reporting in the event that one of our products isn't 100% safe.
PS: At Unique you can request an SDS at any time and you probably won't be surprised to learn that nearly EVERY product we make does not have any hazard warnings on them!
