Zavala, Mark ; Land, Brenda . 2007. The Effectiveness of Vault-Toilet Odor-Control Products: An Update. 0723 1303P. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 4 p.

From campground hosts to recreation technicians, many people need to manage vault-toilet odor to minimize its adverse impact on recreational visitors to Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, lands. There are many products marketed as vault-toilet additives to eliminate odor. The purpose of this study was to find effective products. One product, Armor Research's "Blanket 510", did significantly reduce odors in both the laboratory study and in field tests. The product had the added benefit of reducing fly populations around the treated toilets.
