Default scent killer peroxide

I asked this question on another thread several days ago, with no responses, so here goes again. Does it matter which type of peroxide you use in the scent killer recipe, the brown bottle 3%, or does it have to be industrial strength type that has to be diluted? Anybody with any experience know if it makes a difference? Thanks

I don't remember the exact recipe, but I used regular peroxide and it seems to work fine!

Do NOT use "industrial strength" peroxide. It will cause caustic burns to your skin, and destroy your clothing. The regular store bought stuff will work just fine.

I've come across several of the homemade scent killer recipes. I used the store bought 3% and it seems to work great. The other day, I spooked a doe in a field I never knew was there until I started to lower my bow and heard her jump. She was only 10 yards away. After a brief staredown, she started going about her business when I was about to stand and another doe walked out. She knew exactly where I was and something wasn't right. After another brief staredown and several minutes of stomping with her nose in the air the whole time she just jumped and walked back into the woods. I believe she never caught my scent but knew something wasn't right in the tree. I've heard some bad things about the 30% peroxide that has to be dilluted. There was a link posted that detailed how dangerous it was. I would go with the store bought, everyone else seems to use it with no problems are all.

Home Made Scent Eliminator Spray


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know I saw a thread last year about home made formulas for scent elimination, but I can't seem to find it now. I remember baking soda, peroxide, and that green scent free soap being ingredients, but I don't remember the amounts. Does anybody have a good home brew recipe?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

here's two that i got off these boards i use Strut & Ruts and love it ...works like a lucky charm :P

Strut & Rut provided this " recipe"

2 quarts 3% H202 (Hydrogen Peroxide, brown bottles, $.98 quart at Walmart)
2 quarts distilled water ($.50 gallon at Walmart)
2 boxes of baking soda ($.50 per box at Walmart)

Grand Total- $3.46 for 1 gallon of scent eliminator, compared to $30 in cabelas... Can you say advertising and lucrative profit?

Mix all in a bucket and stir until soda well dissolved. Let sit for at least two hours, mine sat 2 days. Keep mixing as baking soda falls out of solution and drops to the bottom of the bucket. Only so much will stay dilluted, don' t worry to much about the fall out after it' s sat awhile.

Fill containers (I used the H202 quart bottles and the rest in the gallon jug). Cap. Let sit for 1 week. Use liberally, cause the stuffs so cheap



Here's a homemade scent killer recipe I pulled off the internet at the beginning our last season. I've used it religiously and I haven't heard a snort all year. I was directly downwind at ground level on several occasions and was never winded. I also took my archery deer and can credit this stuff. I had leather boots on and had walked all over the area looking for a tree (first time I hunted that particular tree). I missed this deer on the first shot and it proceeded to circle downwind of me, nose high in the air. He never caught wind and I ended up getting a second shot that took him.

1 gallon distilled water (or clean creek water, just no chlorines or iodines in it)
1/2 box of baking soda
16 oz peroxide
2 shot glasses of Hunters Specialty green liquid soap

Pour out enough water from a gallon jug to get the other stuff in and let it fizz for a while after mixing (about 1 hour or the top will pop off). Then just transfer to a spray bottle and you're set.

128 oz cost about $4.50 vs $8-$10 for 16-32oz of some other fancy kind.

Other guys have tried it as well and say they've had success. I won't hunt without it again.

I bought a huge bag of baking soda from sams club for 5 bucks.
Also a good idea I got from this site is to fill a sock with baking soda and use it on your clothes and body or store with your gear. works great. Good lucl hunting.

skeetr1- I use one of those boxes of baking soda meant for the fridge, you peel the sides off the box and it absorbs odors. I keep one in each of my bags of gear/clothing. Thanks for the replies guys, im gonna go whip up somethin this weekend

Default RE: scent killer peroxide

heres another recipe, that i have found.




Gallon of distilled water
1/2 box of baking soda
16 oz hydrogen peroxide
2 ounces of Hunters Specialty shampoo/body soap (the green liquid stuff)

1. Pour out 1/4 of the distilled water and save it in a cup
2. Add the soda, peroxide, and shampoo
3. Cap and shake thoroughly
4. Wait tfor bubbles to settle down, then add that leftover water until full
5. Allow to sit for about 2 hours uncapped until the gases stop forming so quickly
6. Cap and store sealed

Hydrogen peroxide turns to water if left out in the air, so keep it sealed. I transfer to a spray bottle for use and add an ounce or so of peroxide to rejuvenate it since some will inevitably turn to water.

i've always heard that the peroxide in the brown bottle wasn't wise to use because of the odor it has. sounds to me what i've heard is wrong. can someone explain how the odor is eliminated from the peroxide when you make this stuff up?
