Baking Soda Scent Control

I read an article that suggested avoiding using baking soda on Gore-Tex. Can work into the pores and reduce the breathibility of the fabric. Not sure if this is true or hype.

Since 1962, I have gone through a lot of hoops to remove or cover my scent ? Including "skunk scent" ... Lord what was I drinking that day? I have tried about everything one can imagine including some of what I am convinced are among the most egregious of the deer hunting industry's gimmicks. I have yet to find anything that works other than staying down wind.
