I am trying to determine if it's worth the weight to carry some laundry detergent (a small amount) on a sheep hunt to clean my undershorts/shirt every few days or so. I am trying to keep my pack as light as possible and was planning on only bringing one T shirt and one pair of shorts and then washing every three days or so to keep them fresh. In previous hunts I've just changed my underwear every fews days, but it may be unnecessary weight.
The synthetic T shirt and shorts that I currently wear do a pretty good job at fighting the smell (unlike the poly pro that I used to wear!) but after a few days the BO will always come back. From everything that I've read, the sheep have a great sense of smell and I need to be very careful of the wind currents - I know that whatever I do, I will never be able to get rid of my scent. I carry a small stick of unscented anti-perspirant/deoderant and a small bar of unscented soap to help out as well.
I'd appreciate it if you could let me know if my attempts at keeping clean are worth the effort and the weight.
