Take a look at some comments below by experienced caravanners to the job of emptying a toilet cassette. Most people agree it’s their least favourite job of the whole ‘caravanning experience’

“My husband empties ours and considering he gags if there’s even a tiny bit of food left in the plughole of our sink at home I’m surprised his stomach is still intact! Mind you, as someone said, it’s different when it’s your own (really!). I put the chemical in though and I wear a glove to avoid the blue fingers”

“I don’t mind emptying our caravan toilet, however I am a little new to it so didn’t know what an empty cassette should weigh. So the first time it was used, I emptied it, and about what I expected came out and nothing more, I put it back in the ‘van. The next time we went away, again I emptied it except this time…. it REALLY emptied! A LOT more than should have been in there! This time it was MUCH lighter than it was after the first time I emptied it! It was a dealer brought van, and I suspect ithadn’t been fully emptied when sold to my dad (who never used the van). It had sat solid in the bottom, and with a couple of uses had loosened up and flushed out on our second use! Grim!”

“The knack is never to look and never inhale! While mine is emptying I always press my face into my shoulder so I can’t see or smell what’s going on. When I can feel that the cassette is empty I flush without even glancing at what’s in there. Once there is nothing to see I then attend to the swill out, again adopting the face in shoulder technique” “Ha ha, my husband makes exactly the same song and dance when he empties it. He pulls on the gauntlets, spends about half an hour building himself up to unlocking the cassette door (telling us all every 30 seconds what he is about to do) then goes for it. He comes back and then spends the next half an hour scrubbing his hands under the water and rubbing that antibacterial gel into them”

“What I would like to know, has anyone managed to do the cassette thing without getting blue on their fingers? It doesn’t matter how careful I am taking the top off, refilling it and putting it back on, I always end up with blue fingers”

Do any of the comments mentioned above sound familiar?
