I machine wash also, and hang them out on the line to dry. Then straight into a bag with spruce and cedar so they smell just like my hunting area! I think I may try washing with baking soda this year, everyone seems to agree it works well.

I machine wash mine in baking soda, and tumble dry with a cedar scented dryer sheet. also have used earth scent, but its weird putting on clean clothes that smell like fresh dirt, just doesnt sit right with me for some reason. machine washing and drying does tend to fade them out faster though.

I machine wash mine as well but I do only use cold water and a short time setting. I also only use those commercial scent eliminating/non fading detergents and then I hang the clothes out to dry instead of using the dryer.

I' ve never got them dirty before. Except that time a bear walked right up to me in archery season.

Actually, I machine wash.

LOL at Barnes!
To be honest, I' ve never even read the care labels in mine! I' ve always washed them in the machine in cold water with baking soda and then hung them outside.

Wash mine in the machine with scent away detergent then throw them in the dryer with earth scented dryer sheets. Sometimes I smell like a walking dirt pile but that' s better than the alternative
