Probably..but only if it's outside the dog. Also works on the dog's paw's and the lawn.

But why bother? Just box it up and send it [ C.O.D. ] to the Mayor of San Francisco.



Here's the Scoop: San Francisco to Turn Dog Poop Into Biofuel

Norcal's Reed says that some of the more than a hundred farms in the area that have used the compost produced from food scraps have seen record yields.

"We have the most forward-thinking recycling program in the United States," he said.



The plan to recycle pet waste followed a recent study, which found that animal feces make up 3.8 percent of the garbage from residential collections in San Francisco.

The greatest thing about biker forums is they have answers for just about anything.

Sodium Hydroxide will denature any protein. It's used for hair clogs which have protein in them. Poo is probably a lot of fiber (cellulose?) and might get broken down but will definately disrupt any matrix that holds it together.

Problem is it will make soil really basic and dangerous to paws and skin.

whatcha wanna do with it? Smelly soup if you're making it.

trying to make it easy to hose down the drain. I was thinking like in a bucket... make some primordial ooze out of the poo and then pour it down the drain... that comes out on the sidewalk out front.

Scoop it up, put it in plastic bags, put it in the freezer until trash day. Oh,..be sure to mark the bag with a marker so there's no confusion.

Put it in the freezer? Frankly, that makes a lot of sense to me, but I'm thinkin' the smarter half of my family might have a different opinion.

I can see it now, "Hey honey, would you mind puttin' this bag of poop in the freezer next to those filets you bought for this weekend?"

Then again, you are the offical Doof Clubhouse Sanitary Engineer - maybe if I showed her your credentials she'd buy into the idea.

My husband has about 6 dead rattlesnakes and 3 dead alligators in one of our freezers... Gotta make sure I don't take anything out of the wrong one, or dinner will be - um - unforgettable...

Don't dogs like to nibble on their own turds?? Maybe a frozen one would be a treat - hey! A POOPSICKLE!!! LMAO!!
