Let's see. Assume a hypothetical tent is a pup tent style, triangular
entrance, eight feet long, three feet high and wide, then it would be,
what 72 cubic feet?
If the average odor eater is 12 inches long, by 4 inches wide by 1/4
inch thick, then it would be about 12 cubic inches, or approximately
0.007 cubic foot in volume.
It would therefore take roughly 10,285 odor eaters to pack a tent. At,
say 50 cents a pair (volume discount!), that would be around $2500 per
tent treated, not to mention the cost/environmental impact of the
packaging and the labor to pack 'em!
A new tent would be preferable! And cheaper.
