Are you planning on camping or fishing this weekend? Here is a great Tip of the Week from Captain Bob Orsua of Mo Fisch Charters.
Before you put the cooler away between fishing trips, take a ball of paper towels and put a little artificial vanilla on it. Throw the paper towels in the cooler and the cooler will smell good as new next time you pull it out. I keep a roll of paper towels and a bottle of cheap artificial vanilla on the shelf right next to the coolers.
Many times when I’m getting the coolers ready, I’ll just put the paper towels, I pulled out of the cooler, on the work bench and re-use them when I get home. The paper towels also soak up that little bit of moisture left over after you wash it out. Try it, you’ll smell that this really works!
I also put a piece of paper towel with the vanilla on it in any little storage area that gets that musty smell.
