Ways to save money

If you've been hit hard by the recession here's a few tips that can save you some money instead of spending 8 dollars on scent away body soap an shampoo buy a bar of Ivory it is a non perfume plain scent free soap and works great without the cost. Also try taking a old tube sock an filling it with pine needles and putting it in the drier the last 15 min. of drying your hunting clothes then they will be cover scent saturated for free. Baking soda makes a great deodrant for your feet and waste band and underarms.

I have never heard that one about the tube sock and the pine needles before. Did you come up with that one all by yourself?

Yes the sock and pine needles I came up with the Ivory soap I read in a hunting mag. several years ago. The baking soda also came from a magizine article just thought I would pass them on, also rubbing alcohol makes a good quick wash in deer camp when there is no shower to use the smell from the alcohol quickly evaporates and it kills all the odor causing bacteria.

Hey, Arm & Hammer makes a non-scented baking soda based deodorant at a fraction of the cost that you pay for name brand hunting deodorants. I switched to it a couple of years ago and combined with air dried hunting clothes and a sprinkle or two of baking soda in the right places have not been disappointed.
