odor problem in my fish trap pro

7 posts in this topic

I just bought a used Fish Trap Pro that's about 6 years old & used very little. The tarp looks like new. But I think this guy had it stored in or near a dairy barn. It doesn't smell like manure but like chemicals related to milking. Anyways, I have washed this thing 2 times w/ soap & water, dried it, had a fan on it for 2 days & airing out for 3 days. It still smells.

I know bleach works for mildew.

Is there anything you guys have tried that works for odor removal that won't damage the tarp?

If all else fails you should try some Odoban. It got rid of the mice urine in my portable after I had tried every soap and cleaner that I could find on the market.

Where do you find Odorban? My brother bought a mobile home that has cat urine smell. Will this remove that?

Mix 1 quart of 2% hydrogen peroxide with a cup of baking soda and mix thoroughly. After the chemicals are done reacting put it in a spray bottle and hose down the portable with it, and let it sit for an hour or two and then rinse it. I orginally came across a variation of this forumula for removing skunk smell from dogs. I've used it to great effect on all sorts of nasty smells. You might try a small section of your porty before doing the whole thing. I don't think it will damage the tarp, but it could possibly fade the color. I know guys that use this formula instead of scent killer and their camo looks fine.

We found it at Sam's club but when you buy it there it is by the gallon. I would think that a Fleet Farm or a good hardware store would stock it and in a smaller size. It works great on cat urine.

I second the odoban product. It works. I store mine folded up in the garage with a few dryer sheets...someone told me it would keep mice away...don't know about that but I've never had a mice problem...but it does smell nice when I open it up.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
