Default jus thinkin...

if you dry off with a towel that reaks of downy or gain detergent, doesnt that pretty much kill the idea of a scent free shower? ha i realized that when i went to dry off my face and my nose was "punched" by mr. snuggles!

I have a designated towel for hunting season that gets washed with my hunting stuff. TOTALLY defeats the purpose of the no-scent shower, may as well spray on some Chanel No. 5 too.

Drying towels with a fabric softener ruins their ability to soak up water! According to the women in my family, the softener acts like a water repellant.

Mine reeks of wood smoke from leaving it hang to dry around the wood fired boiler. Door knobs reek too.

All kinds of stuff between shower and field stink.

I don't think you are thinking too much at all, in fact I believe you are just thinking. I can be found in my basement the night before I leave for a hunting trip doing wash. I not only wash all my outter gear I am planning on wearing for that hunt in scent free detergent, but also all of my layered clothes as well as towels to use after my showers in the morning. All are kept in a scent free tote.
