I know many of you have used this product in the past.  I purchased a bottle and want to begin usingit this fall.  My question is pretty simple - How much CS do I put in a large bin when I shake my clothing around?  Should I use a dash, teaspoon, tablespoon, etc.???  I liked the idea of putting some in an old nylon stocking and using it like a rosin bag. 

Does anyone have any specific recommendations on how much product to use?  Thank you in advance and good luck this fall.  Be Safe!

I have never used it dry, always used as directed with mixing with water… 1 ounce to a gallon or water…I soaked everything except my King of the Mountian wool, then hang to dry…Put left over in gallon jug and quart spray bottle for boots and equipment…

Might make me a rosin style bag this year though…

I use the rosin bag method.  I love the stuff.  Keep in mind though, it is a mess.  Bring a change of clothes with you and an extra bad to keep your CS dusted clothes in or your truck will never be the same.

I would say to add what you think is enough. I would start with a little at a time, shake, then add a little more. I think a table spoon would be plenty. I only used a 2 table spoons all last year mixing it in water a gal. at a time, I could have got away with 1 tablespoon if I didn’t loose half a gal out of the back of my truck one day.

I will say that its not as messy if you do the dip method and let dry. It works into the fibers of the clothing better and seems to be alot less messy.

I have tried a couple different ways and they all work scent wise. I like the spray bottle, BUT don’t mix the powder to strong, its hard on the pump in a spray bottle.

I will say that one little bottle will last longer than any other scent killer on the market(IMO) and it does work. I can’t wait to try the laundry soap and body wash I picked up at the deer expo from them last spring.

Maybe a silly question, but would putting it in the washing machine work? Or will it mess up the washer? I haven’t tried it yet but just wandering. Another product that I like and has worked real well for me is the deer dander, anybody ever tried it?

I don’t think a washing machine will work.  The point is having the carbon on the cloths.  A washing machine will rinse it all out.

I did the shake in a tub method last year and it works great, but its a mess.  The cloths are “scent free”, but everything they touch will become black.  Marc Anthony said he does the soak and hang dry and its not near as messy.  I will be soaking mine this year.

Like I said, last year I shook all my cloths in a tub.  I got pretty much all my fall and winter gear done with half a container.  The other half will be used this year for a soak.

Just purchased some CS to try this year.  I was just going to use my leftover Scent-A-Way from last year but all the raves and praises of this stuff suckered me into buying some.  I know I won’t be disappointed!  Question though, does anyone rinse their boots in it too? I’m not talking rubber boots though, I’ve got a pair of insulated camo “work” boots.

If it runs, flies, or drives, I’m interested!

I spray them down with my spray bottle and let them sit out in the sun to dry… So I guess that is a yes..
