The Fix: Deodorize Your Gear

Does your pack smell like last summer's cheddar? Here's how to clean up.

 

 

Tents and Backpacks

STINK Crawl into an old tent and your nose will likely detect mildew–a musty-smelling fungal spore. Backpacks absorb odors from food spills and sweat.
CLEAN Use MiraZyme to kill these odors, but increase the dose to one ounce for backpacks and two ounces for typical two- and three-person shelters. Follow the same soaking instructions for stuff sacks (turn tents inside out) and open all zippers. To sanitize a small area of a tent, apply MiraZyme solution with a sponge and air dry.
