I have about 20lbs of powder charcoal. How would I use this with my stored clothes. How to do this and will this do any good? Thanks

LoL MYTHBUSTERS episode on scent cover scent block product effectiveness. Used dogs instead of deer. Wasn't even close.

Some of you worry too much about smell and not enough about movement when hunting.

Simply wash with no detergent, dry and store in big ziplock bags done

I just wash them and hang them up or put in a drawer. Wind and movement are more important.

Why take special care of your hunting clothes when you are going to sit in a box blind a hundred yards from a feeder drinking coffee and eating sandwiches all day? Movement will give you away a lot quicker than clothes washed in Tide if you are in a blind or on the ground.

Your clothes don't hunt without you and you smell (no offense, we all do.) Once you put on your pistine, scent-free clothing, it is no longer scent-free and the odor increases as you wear it.

clap well posted DNS.
Some of the scent free clothing uses charcoal to obsorb the odders.
Charcoal is also used for grillen.

Clothes are not going to make much difference as long as you are pumping a few gallons of air from your lungs every minute. And it is not a matter of bad breath, it is a matter of breath in general.

Last fall when I was hunting from a ground blind, a deer smelled me when he got about 15 yards away. I was in dense woods with no wind, looking down a shooting lane cut through the thick brush. He smelled me but could not see me, since all that was showing was my face and I was rock still, with camo on my face. He could smell me, and got very nervous, but couldn’t see me. He stopped dead in his tracks and whiffed, got nervous, and went the other way. He came back that afternoon and was still nervous, smelling the air. He eventually left going away from me.

So sure, the wind and the movement are important, and I agree, you’ll never completely get rid of scent. But why make it worse? And why not do what you can to keep the smell down? I wash my clothes in scent-free soap, pack them with some cedar, and let them air out a couple days before I use them. If charcoal or baking soda might absorb some scent, I say use them. I would not suggest spending a bunch of money on some goo that will not completely block scent.

Ive always just washed them and stored them in the drawer with regular clothes. If you dont take the wind into account when setting up or stalking it wont matter how you stored them

The Scent-Lok and camo industries convincing folks that they’ve got to have the “latest/greatest” have been the most lucrative scams in all of hunting.
