The Scentlok Debate

To carbonize carbon you need a temp of about 900 Deg Celcius.
To activate it you need exposure to steam at 250 degrees CELCIUS! That's 482 degrees Fahrenheit. Yep, that isn't going to happen in a household dryer.
Does this spell doom for Scentlok? IMO, no. Tossing the garment in the dryer will very likely regain lost performance. There are several chemical and physical reasons for this. In short, it works as long as the temperatures and agitation is enough to break loose some absorbed or physically trapped impurities. Truthfully, they can probably prove it experimentally.
Will the suit permanently loose a portion of it's effectiveness over time? Undoubtedly it will. What garment doesn't?
If the stuff indeed works as advertised who knows.

I dont think it will stop all of your scent but enough to make it seem like you were there a day or two ago, instead of actually being there taking aim. Nothing will replace proper scent treatments like body washes & sprays or most importantly....minding the wind.
If your like me and hunt from the ground, any little edge helps alot.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.
