 Hydrogen Sulfide Treatise



ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO™ 1, quadruple-strength concentrate provides a safe, natural method for control of odors, as well as a reduction in waste volume in stand-alone portable toilets or built-in toilets aboard ships, boats, RVs, motor homes, trains, buses or airplanes. ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO™ 1 contains nine (9) strains of non-pathogenic, all-natural, endospore-forming Bacillus cultures, Yucca Schidigera leaf extract and coconut-based surfactants, an oxygenating nutrient bio-stimulant for anaerobic environments, a delightfully sweet and flirtatious "black cherry burst" fragrance, and a minimal-staining blue polymer dye, combined to rapidly and thoroughly control the odors and appearance of human wastes in toilets. Active Aloe®, the most biologically active form of Aloe Vera leaf extract, further enhances the formula by stimulating the included microbes to faster activity as it enhances the binding of odors. ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO™ 1 contains no toxic ingredients and produces a waste that is acceptable at most disposal facilities.

  • Safe, natural replacement for formaldehyde and and quaternary ammonium compounds.
  • Non-staining royal blue polymer dye, masks color of waste.
  • Enzymes produced include protease (for proteins, including gelatin), amylase (for starch), lipase and esterase (for food fats and greases) and xylanase and cellulase (to degrade toilet paper).
  • Eliminates corrosion caused by sulfide oxidation to sulfuric acid.
  • Contains a unique new strain of Bacillus that oxidizes hydrogen sulfide.
  • Inhibits formation of hydrogen sulfide gas, and its accompanying odors.
  • Digests fats, oils, and food grease in portable toilets and septic systems.
  • Improved degradation and deodorization of acetic, butyric, isobutyric, isovaleric, lactic, palmitic, propionic, stearic and valeric organic and fatty acids, partially responsible for odor emanating from portable toilets.
  • Formula denitrifies and anaerobically degrades starch and fats.
  • Cleans holding tanks, lines, and equipment.
  • Degraded wastes are easier to dispose.
  • "Black Cherry Burst" fragrance offers a lighter, sweeter, classier scent than the typical industrial cherry fragrance used in competing portable toilet treatments.
  • Safe, non-toxic and environmentally safe bio-formulation.
  • Ideal product to stock in Emergency Preparedness Shelters to significantly reduce buildup of waste and odor in public and private rest rooms, during prolonged failure of power and/or sewage services.
  • Super concentration is economical to transport, store and apply.


For maximum convenience and economy, add 1.5 ounces (44.4 ml) of ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO™ 2 for every five (5) gallons of water in portable toilets and marine or RV holding tanks. Temperature affects the activity of the working solution and action increases with rising temperatures up to 115 F. Diminished activity can be expected below 40 F or above 125 F.

To Resell Diluted Product:
Stir pail thoroughly for thirty (30) minutes before dispensing. A paint stirring drill attachment works well for this application if manufacturing area lacks overhead stirrers. Use the entire contents of 5 gallon pail or 55 gallon drum, when blending to produce finished product. Dilute one part of ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO™ 1 with three (3) parts of chlorine-free tap-water and bottle it. Label product to use 6 ounces (118 ml) of this diluted version for every five(5) gallons of water in portable toilets and marine or RV holding tanks. This will provide a product with dosage more comparable to competing products, if your clients prefer to continue the dosage they are accustomed to applying.


ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO™ 1 is packaged in 5-gallon plastic pails. Store in a cool place. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and open wounds. Wash hands with soap and water after handling. If measuring and pouring concentrated product for diluted repackaging, wear latex gloves to avoid staining your hands with the concentrated blue dye. We also recommend wearing old clothing during dispensing, as splashed product will rapidly dye cotton fabric.

Minimum order of Treat-A-Loo is 5 x 5 gallon pails or 1 x 55 gallon drum.
