Bellingham, WA – As campers and backpackers begin dusting off tents that have been stored all winter, many will experience foul mildew odors or the infamous “tent vomit” smell. Gear Aid™ is pleased to announce a new article on how to clean tents and remove bad smells.

“As spring approaches, we start getting a lot of phone calls from people asking what they should do about stinky, dirty tents,” said Gerald Craft, consumer marketing director. “Because tents feature special coatings, seam tapes and technical fabrics that require special care, we created an easy resource with specific tips and recommendations to ensure your tent lasts for many years to come.”

The new article offers tips on “how to clean a tent with mold or mildew,” “how to deodorize tents,” “how to remove polyurethane odors from tents” and “how to prevent odors from returning.” To access the article, please visit: https://www.mcnett.com/blog/how-to-deal-with-mold-mildew-and-tent-odors.
