Deitz,

Do you use this formula yourself? If so, where do you get the non-scent shampoo?

Thanks,

Mysterio

they had the same formula in field and stream except they used 1/2 cup baking soda. You should be able to find no-scent shampoo at any outdoors store, i know i have seen it at Gander Mountain.

yes I use this stuff, like its going out of style... Believe it or not.. I use it on my gym shoes, we use it when one of our cats pees on the carpet.. its ike magic!... I will give you one hint.. try and get the baking powder to disolve in the water first before you add the peroxide and the soap. And when you let the stuff sit, be sure to not put a cap on it... I then just put it in a spray bottle.

Well I can make a gallon of the stuff for about $2.50 and I go thought about 12 spray bottles of this a year by letting my dad and brother and friends use it when we go in the wood and They love the stuff and I also swear by it so it probally saves me about $80 a year. Last year I spent about $15 to make it and I made like I said about 12 bottles (or more. Figure that if You buy the stuff it is $8 per bottle (just a guess) That is $96 I would have spent. Plus this way you to not get skimpy with it and spray down good with it.

Well, Distilled water may cost you $1 a gallon?.. maybe a little more.. peroxide, maybe another $1... The baking soda I always just have laying around the house anyway, same as no scent shampoo.. and I have always felt scent killer was very expensive... so I didn't use very much to save money.. Now I figure I can make a gallon of it for like what?... $3... I think you are saving a ton... and if mixing 4 ingredients is trouble... then buy the stuff...I figgure it took me about 5 mins to mix it up?

Thanks Guys.

I have an R/O(reverse osmosis)system in my house.Do you think the water from this would substitute for distilled?

Dehumidifier water works in place of distilled water. I used hydrogen peroxide that came from a liquid non clorinated shock for pools and hot tubs. I read the stuff in the brown bottles has something else in it that can reduce it's effectiveness. I used the green liquid body soap instead of laundry soap and it bubbled up quite a bit. The green stuff has an active ingredient that inhibits bacteria growth.

The recipe I saw is:

1 quart distilled H20

1 quart 3% H10

1 oz. liquid scent free laundry soap

1/4 cup baking soda

I wanted to save a few pennys so I went to the local dollar store and found every thing but the sent free soap.

baking soda 2 for a buck

peroxide 2 for a buck

distilled water 1 gallon a buck

sent free laundry soap 6.53 bucks

mix time 5-7 min

if this works and I score the monster buck its "priceless"

Is the baking soda suppose to clump up after it sits a couple of days or should I add more distilled 02. I stirred it up and it seamed to disolve again I'll check it in a day or two, to see what its like. I follow the directions to a tee, except doubling it

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
