How “Blue” Works
- It’s a chemical compound that controls odor and breaks down waste and paper.
- There are varieties that come with and without formaldehyde. “Blue” that contains formaldehyde is not as good for public or environmental health and may not be accepted by waste disposal sites.
- It contains biocides which prevent the growth of odor-producing bacteria.
- It gets its color from a blue dye that is added. The color helps to hide the waste collected in the tank.
- It can come in packs, pucks, tabs, or liquid form.
- It comes in a variety of fragrances.
- It’s non-toxic when diluted.
- It’s effective for up to 7 days.
