This is the system I use: I wash my clothes, in a non UV, non scent detergent. Then in the dryer with HS earth scent dryer sheet. My washer has a container that allows me to put the softener in while the clothes are in, being washed. Has any one used...some sort of "something" in the fabric softener cycle. The washer is run with some towels using the hunting detergent to remove, pre-existing scents, chemicals and brightners. Then into the dryer with the earth scent dryer sheets. Now that both washer and dryer are prepped, in go the hunting gear. My thoughts this season, regarding the wash. What if some vanilla or "buck stop" apple, earth, pine or deer lure (esturous) etc was used in the 'softener' container. Then into the dryer with the Hunter speciality earth scent dryer sheets. Has anyone tried this, I noticed when I use softener on my normal clothes it has that "just like spring" smell or whatever. Could this work with "hunting" smells also ?? I hope my cajons dont shrivel to grapes, for discussion laundry tactics on a hunting forum.
