I run the washer a with just water then the next cycle pour a box of baking soda and let it wash in Warm/Cold.

Dry usually hang dry but can take for ever..

How does every one do the steps.

I don't worry about it. I personally believe that I had better be downwind from an animal. I tried packing my clothes in a bag with cedar branches. That taught me that I was allergic to cedar.

However, I have a friend that has bow hunted every continent. He always showers with no scent soap before going hunting. He says it works for him but, like a lot of rich guys, he is pretty extreme.

I just wash them in the regular laundry. I have been spraying them down with some scent killer the night before though. Probably doesn't matter considering my blind is 100 yards from the feeder.

I normally use a sent free soap for all my clothes and never thought much of it. One day the wife got some new stuff and was a very noticeable sent. I went bow hunting that morning and noticed that every deer that got in my wind freaked out. I never make any effort to cover my sent but they did not like that detergent at all. Use sent free detergent and hunt the wind...and stay away from beans and cabbage the night before.

I throw them in a pile, somewhere, and a couple days later, they're clean and hanging in the closet. It's like magic.

I have been washing clothes in scent free soap, showering before every hunt, packing clothes with cedar branches as well as mixing crushed cedar with distilled water to create my own cover scent. Extreme ? Maybe. But I like hunting thick cover close to bedding areas, so, I'll take any advantage I can get.
