Just curious to see what every one washes there camo in. I use to wash mine in the scent away soap type stuff. I ran outa that and started using
strait baking soda. I always hang them out to air dry then put them in a plastic tote with a couple of fresh pine limbs.

What is the rest of yall use. I really ain't wanting to buy a $10.00 bottle of soap if there is something else that works for low $$$.

Thanks,

I use some kind of detergent I got at Wal-Mart in the hunting section. It's a white bottle and has some blaze orange on it. The name escapes me though. It was like $4 for a bottle that does 32 loads. It is scent free and has no UV brighteners. Then I hang dry like you.

I don't remember the exact name, but it is the UV killer wash that Wally World carries or used to carry, probably the same thing ArkArcher posted. I dry mine in the dryer (except hats) with the HS scentaway dryer sheets.

Back in the day, we just used baking soda, dried in the dryer, and put cedar and pine limbs in with them, just like you guys have said.

Same here I use the stuff from wal-mart, and then hang outside. Oh yeah I wash mine everyday unlike some people...lol...Then I spray down with scent away when I get out of the truck and wear rubber boots.

Anyone ever used natural cedar oil as cover scent on clothes? I purchased some from a wood crafting supply co. and it seems to cover scent well. I don't use it all the time but I keep a can around when I want to use it. I got the idea from those wafers they sell and its much cheaper goes a long way :biggrin:

Before Atsko cam out, I used horse "Mane and Tail" soap, available at any good tack supply place.

We were using it in museums for use on historical fabrics because it was the only detergent available years ago that did not have optical UV brighteners in it.

I put my winter heavy stuff in my dear old Mom's heirloom cedar chest and just take it out and go to the woods every year without washing, etc. and think it is pretty scent proof. I would think it would work well. :cool:
