Spring is around the corner. Finally, we begin dusting off and unpacking your outdoor camping tents that have been stored-away all winter. When take actions, you’re likely to discover some foul odors or mildew smells emanating from your humble abode. The following tips will be helpful for you to get rid of the awful smell and return you a fresh one to use in the next days.
First, you need get a tote and fill it with clean water then add pine-sol in it. After that, you can place the tent, rain fly, tent poles, tent bag, stakes and stake bag in to the water, and leave them soak in the pine-sol solution for an hour or so. One hour is enough for the camping tent to absorb the aroma of the pine-sol solution, and then you will get a fresh smelling tent.
After the tent has soaked in the pine-sol solution for one hour, now you should take it out of the access water and reassemble the tent in your yard. Use water hose to pray the tent off and you should pay particular attention to the fabric on the bottom. Be sure it is thoroughly rinsed.
The last step is to dry the camping tent. You should let the tent air dry both inside and outside. It’s important to wait until the tent and all the contents are fully dry before you pack it back up. Otherwise, the mildew will return. If you have a large family tent or multi-room tent, then you should wait patiently. If the weather is not good and you cannot dry the tent outside, you should place the tent in your garage or even inside your home or basement to let it dry. One thing you need to keep in mind is never dry your camping tent in a dryer because this could reduce the lifetime of the tent.
Finally, your camping tent has taken a complete shower and are ready to work for you. Enjoy your time right now.
