Learn how to reduce smells with the Joolca GottaGo toilet. 
Firstly, a lot of the smell from portable toilets comes from mixing the solids and the liquids. The Joolca GottaGo toilet separates liquids from solids, which naturally minimizes odours. It also features airtight compartments to further reduce smell.
If you're looking to make your portable restroom as odour-free as possible, here are some helpful tips to help further minimize odour with your GottaGo:

Regular Cleaning

Toilet Bowel

Make sure that after use you are spraying the bowl down with a cleaning solution.


Start with the basics. Regular cleaning is essential. Use warm water and a gentle, eco-friendly cleaner to wipe down the interior of both the liquid and solid compartments after emptying. This prevents residue build-up and keeps odours at bay.


Natural Deodorizers (for bagging/composting)

Before heading out, sprinkle a generous amount of natural deodorizers like baking soda or coconut coir in the solid waste compartment. These help absorb odours and break down waste naturally without harsh chemicals.


Essential Oils (for bagging/composting)

A few drops of essential oils can go a long way. Lavender, peppermint, or citrus oils are not only refreshing but also possess natural antimicrobial properties. Add a few drops directly into the compartments or onto a cotton ball placed within.


Peat Moss or Sawdust (for bagging/composting)

Adding a layer of peat moss or sawdust after each use can significantly reduce odours. These help absorb liquids, reducing the smell and aiding in the composting process.
