We worked with a couple who had happily been employed by Hoodoo Recreation. She had been an area manager, and he drove a nice truck around with a spray system mounted on the back. He could clean outhouses in a whole forest in one quick run. Word is they all smelled great, too. The secret? Jasmine air fresheners and biological agents which contain not only potent enzymes, but also bacteria to break down the mess.
