Ha...I feel like I am following Minnies lead here. 2 oz in the head, 4 in the main salon and forward V berth. I dont have as much area as he does to cover. I also use the refills which are cheaper. 2oz container usually lasts at least 2 months...more if it is more humid. Try it...you wont be sorry.

There seems to be a lot of lower priced options available with the tea tree oil. One is Safe-T-Air, and it runs $30 for 14oz. Sure looks like the same stuff, but in a different package.

Biozap is 16oz for $30

8% (KG) vs 5%-12% (BioZ) tea tree oil. Interesting. Now I have to find out whether the inconsistency matters. It may be worth a try. I can't find any side by side reviews.

Our boat arrived w/ poor cabin air circulation and stunk. It sat unused Victoria and then san diego for a couple years. Needless to say it was pretty musty.
I installed 2 solar cabin fans and started using the kanberra last august. The fans helped immediatly but some odor was still there into the fall. I had placed one container in the forward head. When I covered the boat in nov. I added a 2nd container in the aft head. Working in the cabin this winter I have noticed when I arrive there is no odor at all in the boat.
As far as I'm concerned it works.

Has anyone tried the Delta Air Sponge? Appears to do the same job, but maybe a bit faster. Moisture Control, Odor Control & Healthier Indoor Air | DampRid

Another product I have yet to try is Odor Genie, which is very inexpensive, but seems to be similar to the Delta Air Sponge. Wild Berry Odor Genie (FG69H) | Odor Control Products | DampRid

I emailed Safe-T-Air for their MSDS last night and received it just a few minutes ago. They are showing three tea oil of 10%-15%. Neither the Biozap nor Safe-t-air show the 2% lemon scented TTO of Kaberra, but for the huge cost difference, I'll have to give it a shot with the Safe-T-Air.

BTW, vinegar kills mold because of it's ph, not by cleaning. And it refutes your assertion that anything that kills mold is dangerous to people. I think I'll have a pickle.
