    Manure...serious question

    Thanks for those ideas! Baking soda is a life saver for sure! I saw the freshly sprayed farm the next day. If you are downwind from a sprayer, you can literally be covered in a fine mist of the stuff. You don't have to be as close as you think or be able to see it in the air. Yeah, personal experience.... But it seems like alot of spraying is done for now. ? For us, it's the smell of home, sweet home!

    Vickence are you sure the smell you noticed was not the goose down oil. When the down is damp from your body perspiration and dew from camping the down can get a bit rank. Some don't mind it I can't stand it.

    Thanks for the heads up on that! This was definitely in the air and not just near the hammock. I haven't gotten the down moist enough yet to smell anything. I will pay attention to that, though!

    Baking Soda breaks down easily, dryer sheets do not.

    I use Baking Soda to clear odors, then I use it to clean stains or help keep my sink smelling clean.

    I learned early on that a lot of plastic totes and bags have a strong odor of their own.
    What kind of bag are you using?

    I think there's a few ways to avoid the scent, the first would be preventive; avoid areas where you've got cow turds under you, haahahaha. Another bit to that, if it's just unavoidable and that's really the best spot... I've had that situation happen to me with a cow pie once earlier this year. It was relatively old, so I was able to kinda dig up some dirt and "shoo" it away with my boots.

    If it's just really stinking, depending on where you hang your quilts to air out / store, I'd recommend throwing in a few dryer sheets in there as well, so long as you're not opposed to your gear having a "fresh" smell afterward. I use those same dryer sheets all the time when it's time to put the boots back in the storage closest, which seems to do the trick pretty dang well.

I think I am grabbing my downy underquilt and bringing it in the house...
    Did you fart much in the night, maybe itís stuck in the filling 🤪
