Gray Water concoction?

Does anyone have a home remedy concoction gray water mix? I'm thinking something with lemon juice and baking soda. I'd like to stop paying the WalMart prices and make my own.

We use the same "concoction" in all 3 holding tanks- We use a scoop of borax and a scoop of the cheapest laundry powder available- It has served us well for more than a decade- The laundry powder comes with a scoop in each package- We are fulltimers in our fiver- JMHO- DD

Fulltiming since July 1, 1999 currently with a 2005 GMC Sierra 3500 cc drw towing a 2007 Jayco Eagle 341RLQS

Here is one that i have used before and it worked good. When i had my new roof put on i had the installer put on the sighon 360 roof vents. No smell at all and nothing but water in tanks. Hope this helps.
Another formula for cleaning your tanks came from another camper on this forum a while back. Seems to work very well for us. No odors at all. In a gallon plastic jug put together 8oz pine-sol, 8oz liquid fabric softener, 8oz household ammonia, and 8oz baking soda. Mix with a quart or so of water, then fill the gallon jug the rest of the way with more water. Mix, then pour about a cup down each drain (sink, lavatory, and whatever else you have), then pour the rest of the gallon into the toilet. Follow with 2-3 gal of water. If really dirty, add 20lb ice cubes and take a 1/2 hour ride and dump. I put this concoction in every time I dump, and never have any odors from any of my 3 tanks.

Yep, I have used the same pinesol/fabric softener/ammonia/baking soda mix for quite a while, and never have any odors. I call it my "sewer juice" formula.
