    Most of us have probably bought some scent neutralizer or still do. And we pay $10+ for a 24oz bottle. And we all know that wont last very long. I sometimes will even spray my pop up blind with it and thats why I make my own. It's cheap. Here's how I do it.
    You will need the following:
    • 1/2 cup Baking soda
    • 2 cups Distilled water
    • 1oz Unscented shampoo
    • 2 cups 3% Hydrogen peroxide
    Mix ingredients in a large bowl (gently) until the baking soda dissolves.
    Pour in a clean container that has a lid. (I use a gatorade bottle)
    Leave the lid cracked 3-4 days because this concoction creates gases that need to escape.
    Then I put mine in a spray bottle with a bubble stone on the bottom of the tube to keep the baking soda from clogging up the nozzle. It doesn't seem to dissolve all of the way.
    If you prefer this solution can be used with heavy duty paper towels and placed in a ziploc bag or a baby wipe box. Make sure to let it soak in, then pour out excess liquid.
    This stuff works for me. I had a buck circle around my blind last year within 20yds. He walked in from behind us and he had no idea we were there. He sure did taste good. Let me know if this works for you.
    Happy hunting.
