Kanberra gel

I'm starting to hear more about this. An all natural tea tree oil gel that dissipates into the air and kills all mold, fungi and viruses. Says its non-toxic and has a pleasant odor.

It sounds like the perfect winterization and/or spring commissioning add.

Anyone try it yet?

This is awesome stuff, but, yes, very expensive. However, if a 4 oz jar were to last months, I'd be very happy to pay the cash for such a product. Beats wiping down the surfaces of my interior, like yesterday, 5 days prior ...

I just ordered a 2oz jar to test in the bathroom at home. Will report back.

I haven't found many who are familiar with this product at all.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I tried it at home and didn't notice anything and the company sent me a replacement to try on the boat. I put one in the head and stuck another in A high spot in the bilge with a squeeze of silicon. It's only been a week, but I'm starting to think its working. If it does, I'm stocking up.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
