    Hey everone just thought id throw this out there for ya. Some of ya may have seen this before or already know it but for those who dont it make save ya some big dollars.

    This is a recipie for homade scent killer
    1.5 qt of Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
    2 qts distilled water
    1/2 oz unscented laundry detergent
    1/2 cup baking soda

    Mix it up till soda is disolved and put in a dark container. They say sunlight dissolves the solution. Leave it uncapped for several days till it quits putting of gases and then seal. And store it in a dark area.

    I dont know personally if it works but the feedback i got from others it works as good and some say better than scent a way. Its awful cheap in my opinion. I gonna make up a bunch soon. Hope this helped yall and if anyones ever used it let me know some results please. good luck!

    I've used straight baking soda for years to wash all my hunting clothes in and it works great. A lot cheaper than buying the soap they sale. I bet that recipee will work just as good as the store bought scent away. Thanks for the tip :cool2:.

    Thanks, at this price i'll saturate everything i got.:big_smile: Scent away is a bit pricey to use the way i would like. I like the baking soda, i wash my camo either in it or Code Blue laundry detergent.

    I believe it to help bind the ingredients together. Keeps it from seperating is what ive heard

    Ive got a big bottle of the store stuff but havents used it in years. May try washing the clothers in baking soda though.
