You can find any number of homebrew descenting spray recipes , and adding baking soda to the rinse cycle will also help
Right on, also let drip dry! Don't use any type of UV enhancing detergents.

I wear the old school Mackinaw's (jacket and pants, you know the red and black checkered ones [8D])and or else a pair of fleece pants over long johns and a fleece parka. I find the main thing, like many above stated, is to hunt the wind.

I wash ANY clothing item before it goes to the woods with me.

Yeah, but you can scratch your face in public!

I shower with Knight & Hale fresh earth shower gel. My clothes, including the towels I will use during hunting season are washed in fresh earth laundry detergent and stored in sealed bag with fresh earth scent wafer. When I dry off, my towel even smells like fresh earth. Arm & Hammer deodorant and take scent eliminators with me to my stand. I also carry a fresh earth scent wafer and hang it in the stand with me, along with attractant during rut to help mask any odors during the day. So far, so good!

All very good advice. I would also suggest to de-scent, to the best of your ability, anything that you bring with you, such as your bow/rifle, any packs, chairs, etc...
