    When I said, wash them in apple cider vinegar, I suppose I should have been more specific. A half cup in a full washer is sufficient and add your usual detergent.

    I understand your concern, but I own gore-tex coats, pants, waders, and sleeping bag covers. I wouldn't have made the recommendation if there were damaging effects.

    Best of luck finding an alternative if that's the route you end up taking. Hopefully Simms has an effective solution.

    Now you're close. My father did that, to racoons and at least one cat. A month later he's having one of these "over the fence" conversations with his neighbor. Dalton says "Swede, my cat had a chip and turned up dead in a road side ditch. The funny thing is that I can't figure out how he got from Suquamish to across the Hood Canal bridge". Beats me Dalton, I don't know.
    Have another true story about a dog the REALLY didn't like cats. But that's a camp fire.

    A cat pissed on one of my pairs about 5 years ago. I tried everything and I still complain about that smell every single time I put them on. It will never go away.

    I must say I'm actually a little surprised at how much interest cat piss on goretex waders has gotten... I thought I might watch the post go poof below the fold before getting an answer. Really funny.

    Because we are guys and think stuff that has to do with peeing and pooping is funny. Especially when its at another persons expense.

    Good news: I can't smell cat pee at all and they're dry. Seems the second washing with baking soda did the trick. And, oh man they are clean! I'm gonna look like some kinda greenhorn out there swatting mosquitos this weekend in fancy spotless G3s! Haha

    Hey if you wanna dress up in camo gear, and face paint, I can bring some Jack Daniel's, and we will have a stake out and wait for that god damned cat to come around again. Ill film, and you can unleash your airsoft gun on it. LMAO. This could be the most epic thread this forum has ever seen.
