Wash Detergent

What's everybody using to wash their hunting clothing, especially wool. I've been using Sport Wash and cold water on the hand wash cycle of washing machine. I'm not happy with the way it turns out, even the mud doesn't all come out. I would like something that doesn't have any UV brighteners in it.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

Re: Wash Detergent

You might want to take the machine off of hand wash cycle,maybe a little more agitation will help loosen the mud. Just a thought.

Re: Wash Detergent

I was thinking that myself, guess what I'm fishing for is, does anybody know of some other detergent that's good for wool and also has no UV brightener in it?

Re: Wash Detergent

I use the Scent Killer powdered detergent. It seems to work pretty well and has no UV brightners.

Re: Wash Detergent

i use the Scent Shield Clothes Wash mainly cause it doesnt cause camo to fade like many home detergents.

Re: Wash Detergent

I use Cheer Free and Gentle (powder). It is scent free and has no UV brighteners in it. Looking at the prices as an example Scent Killer detergent cost 3 times as much as the Cheer. Note - the Cheer liquid detergent has UV brighteners in it.

Re: Wash Detergent

Last year the Missus washed my Blaze Orange Hunting coat in some kind of Ultra U.V. detergent. I glowed like a Jack o Lantern!!! Can only imagine what I looked like to a Deer!!! I was going to beat Her, but She is bigger than me and I bleed easily.....
