    Default Question on how to get rid of odor.

    I brought a bow from a guy a week or so ago. And it he gave me a bow case with it. He lives in a house with about 4 or 5 cats and 3 dogs. And they don't like going to the bathroom where they should. So the smell on this bow case is awful. It's a cloth bow case. How can I get the smell off of it? I can't even bring it in the house it smells so bad.
    What is a firefighter?
    He's the guy next door.
    He's a guy like you and me with warts and worries and unfulfilled dreams.
    Yet he stands taller than most of us.
    He's a fireman.
    A fireman is at once the most fortunate and the least fortunate of men.
    He's a man who saves lives because he has seen too much death.
    He's a gentle man because he has seen the awesome power of violence out of control.
    He doesn't preach the brotherhood of man.
    He lives it.

    I would try baking soda. Then spray it down with scent away.

    If it's a cloth case I would wash it with the same stuff you wash your hunting clothes.

    Yep think I'd get a new case if possible
    Some people go to church and think about hunting. Others go hunting and think about God.

    Wash it then hang it in the shed or garage till spring. It will help but I'll bet a year from now if it ever gets wet, you will smell the cat pee.

    Trash it, cloth cases are useless anyway.

    Just my experience, I want some protection when I put my bow in a case, otherwise what good is it?

    if you must save that case, get a big bottle of lemon juice and wet the case down thoroghly. after a while, put the case in the washing machine. it will come out fine. just make sure to soak the case until it's dripping wet. this is the same thing you do when your dog comes home smelling like a skunk. well, not the washing machine part... lol
    i'd buy a new case.

    I have used Atsko Sport Wash for the most foul smelling things I have needed to clean and it worked perfectly. It works on the proteins that cause the smell. Remember smell is from dead bacteria. But if that don't work...go for the 40 bucks and buy a new case.
