moth ball smell

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, we just bought are first pop up camper. The only thing is it has not been used since 2005. Kind of smell like moth balls in a very big way. I have it set up in the driveway and all open to air it out. Just wondering if there is anything else I can do to get rid of the smell.

Thanks for any input

Let it air good and put in a tub or two or three with large quantities of cat litter, oil dry or baking soda. They're the kind of things that absorb smell. It'll take time, though. Plus, wash and hang anything loose that you can.

Be careful with sprays as that will make it worse. Cedar Closet by Avon is a helper but that takes time to air out, too.

id do what ron says and place some fabric softener sheets around, or cedar shavings would work well

Forgot about the coffee and charcoal. That's advice when your power goes out and the fridge gets nasty.

I was told to use it in an old car of mine that smelled like mothballs. I never did try it because I sold the car.((I misread that last post,....at first I thought you said to forget about the coffee and charcoal idea,......after reading it again, I just noticed that I read that wrong...sorry for any confusion))

I've read that coffee and charcoal are used to take the smells out of a fridge that has lost power.

I work for a trucking company and we use coffee to get the smell out of our trailers all the time.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
