Follow all care instructions indicated on the garment label. Garments should only be washed in cold water on a delicate cycle.
MUDDY OR BLOODY RULE:
The less you wash your carbon gear the better. The “Muddy or Bloody” rule is a great approach. You should only wash your ScentLok carbon clothing when they are visibly muddy or bloody from your hunt.
Reactivation is the key to keeping Carbon Alloy® effective & virtually as good as new for many seasons to come. We recommend, for maximum odor adsorption, to reactivate your ScentLok garments in your household dryer at least every 40 hours of field use. For example, if you hunt for four hours a day and store your clothing in airtight storage after each hunt, you should reactivate your gear after 10 days of hunting. To reactivate your ScentLok carbon clothing, place your gear in a household dryer and cycle on high heat for about 40 minutes.
Airtight storage is the most effective way to keep foreign odors from contaminating your ScentLok gear. It also prevents odors from using up the adsorption capacity of Carbon Alloy® when you’re not in the field. So remember, immediately following reactivation and after each hunt, your ScentLok garments should be kept in an airtight and dry storage. Excessive odors will require the system to be reactivated more often. ALWAYS store garments dry, never damp or wet.
Machine wash gentle in cold water only with no bleach or fabric softener. Lay flat to dry. Do not iron or dry clean. All ScentLok garments are covered by our satisfaction guarantee.
LIQUID SPRAYS & COVER SCENTS:
We highly recommend you DO NOT use any liquids or cover scents directly onto ScentLok carbon clothing. The carbon will adsorb the molecules in the sprays/scents and will make less room for it to adsorb your human odor while in the field. We recommend ONLY using liquid sprays and cover scents on your hard good field gear such as your bow, boots, ladders, tree stands etc.
