    I would wash with some soap and warm water. Be careful as paracord will shrink in hot water. Thats what I do anyway.

    Yeah, hand soap or dish soap. Use cold water though. Warm/hot will shrink it after a while. Mine smells too. Like man. Lol

    I normally use a little bit of dishwashing liquid and an old toothbrush with cold water, works pretty good for me and I'm a heavy sweater too.

    Wash it in the shower with warm water and shampoo. Then let it sit out to dry. Makes my wife crazy when I use her good shampoo.

    Ive never noticed an odor off mine, but then again I wear it in the shower so it prolly gets cleaned in there.

    I use a little hand soap and cool water. I scrub with an old toothbrush. It helps with the stink and it gets the brighter colored cord closer to it's original glory when life get's dirty.

    My EDC bracelet doesn't have an odor and I've been wearing it daily (when I leave the house) for over 2 years.

    I just wear mine in the shower once in a while and that usually keeps it fresh.

    On the ones that have become really stanky, I wash them thoroughly with water and hand soap, then I put them wet in a small container with baking soda and make sure they're covered with it as well. I let them sit overnight then the next morning I rinse them thoroughly and let them air dry.

    I have a hard time wearing one all the time, I don't like wearing watches either.

    If the cord is pre shrunk put the bracelet in the pocket of a pair of jeans and wash with your normal laundry. Did this on accident once and the bracelet shrank up to kids size.
