    I use the Presidents Choice brand of HE non-scented detergent with some hydrogen peroxide powder. Once it's done, I run a quick cycle with no soap in it. Then air dry outside. Good luck!

    Make sure the detergent does not have uv brighteners in it

    Watch the wind, no clothing covers your scent or the scent of where they have been.

    I had a sales guy tell me that my wife had to buy 2 pairs of boots because the smell of ice fishing would ruin her chances of shooting a big buck, I asked him what he thought the boots smelled like at the moment? His scent away boots sitting in a department store were useless and only smelled of the department store.

    I like the idea of not washing the stuff most of the dime, I end up smelling more like dirt, but then again I am human and the deer smell every bit of sweat and oils from me so I believe the scent away stuff works better on the hunter than the deer.

    How can I tell if it has UV brighteners? I read the bottle just now but can't tell.

    It will say OBA, FBA, enzymes, stilbenes or similar. Hydrogen Peroxide is a whitner/ brightner.
    Clean them in water only or a non scented and non whitener/brightner detergent. Liby, seventh gen., other national brands that have no OBA etc.

    Thanks! Seems I've been doing it all wrong. I read an article saying Cheer has no optical brigtheners and would be easier to find almost anywhere, so I'll get a jug of Cheer "free" (without the dyes and scents) next time I'm at the store.

    The question of "Odour Elimination " was put to Jim Shockey in this months Outdoor Life Magazine , his answer ;
    "I just try to work the wind , rather than mask my smell."

    Yes Steve Rinella of Meateater basically said the same thing as Shockey on the Joe Rogan podcast. He thought all scent eliminator products were bunk.

    I agree on the wind. I have, over the years, tried commercial scent eliminators, cover scents, even a charcoal impregnated military biological suit loaned to me.

    The successes I have had was using the wind and using skunk scent on crowded public land and the skunk scent was only good at keeping the stand jumpers from crashing my party not mask my scent.
