    As for soap, if you do not want to use one of the "hunter Brand" commercial soaps, ie from the hunting department of the stores then just use Borax, an all natural cleaner good for HE machines. Then I hang to dry outside for days, better if they can get a final rinse or two outside. As for packing with leaves and such, be sure they are dry or you may have a moldy mess.

    Borax is available in most grocery/department stores, most common is Mule-Team.

    run a cycle of scent free detergent through the machine first, then do your clothes. hang outside to dry. your dryer probably has scent in it as well...

    You may be able to reduce the scent you give off, but you can never eliminate it. And you can't normally fool a deer. Lots of good articles online how exactly deer and other animals smell things. Play the wind.

    my best friend is a bit of a jean freak, he likes his expensive jeans. and one thing he always tells me is that he never washes his jeans unless he spills on them, but when they begin to stink a bit he throws them in his freezer for a day or two. the cold kills all the bacteria in them. i have yet to try that on my hunting clothes but i think ill give it a try. just put them in a bag and tie them up. throw em in and let them sit for a couple days. ive also heard of boiling pine needles and such to use as cover scent. im not sure how well that works though. but its free so maybe ill give that a shot also.

    That's the right answer.

    Bacterial growth is only slowed when in cold Temps. It will not be killed in freezer Temps. Bacteria grow best in 4c to 60c. The killing of bacteria is best at Temps above 60c.

    I would use non uv brightening products and hang outside to dry. Your can even get some cedar boughs and stuff them in sleeves and pockets
