Compost Toilet Dust Suppression Tips

The only unexpected challenge I’ve encountered since I started using a compost toilet is making sawdust not dusty.  Luckily I figured it out pretty quickly, and using a spray bottle is not the easiest way.

I used to sit on the toilet, spraying down my sawdust supply in the bucket in front of me…too much effort!  After spraying the sawdust seemingly forever, I’d still get to back to the dry, dusty mess after just a few scoops.

Now, each week before I bring in my sawdust supply, I use my watering can to soak the bucket of sawdust first.  Works like a charm!

Simple change, major improvement.
