Im looking for ways to manage the smell and mess of a bucket toilet when camping. I dont have a composting toilet or anything like that. Do i use sawdust/lime??
saw dust or peat moss
bucket with toilet seat and lid I use a Luggable Loo
farm and fleet sells them or you can order the lid from amazon https://www.amazon.com/72-HRS-Emerg...&hvtargid=pla-571221766264&psc=1
I think Cabelas has them also ,search on line they are quite common
anything will work if it gives you a reasonably decent seal
2 buckets 1 with saw dust , the other you start with a layer of saw dust 2-3 inches , you want something like a 28oz tin can to scoop your saw dust from your saw dust bucket to the toilet bucket.
every time you go , you lift the lid , doo your doody , or #1 then cover you excrement's with saw dust or peat , actually dirt or mulched leaves work also , carbon it locks in the odor , close the lid to contain the little that might get out.
snap a tight lid on when you transport , put in compost pile at home when you return
it needs a hot pile or a year wait to use on your garden
you could make a separate pile for excrement only of course with a carbon matter cover after dumping each time.
wash out the bucket with soap and water , a toilet brush you leave by the compost can be handy, flip it over let it dry and repeat as needed
if you want all the specifics the Humanure handbook has the science and more details it is printed in a pile of languages for use world wide.
