I would wash with some soap and warm water. Be careful as paracord will shrink in hot water. Thats what I do anyway.
Wash it or make a new one.
Yeah, hand soap or dish soap. Use cold water though. Warm/hot will shrink it after a while. Mine smells too. Like man. Lol
Just spray it with some febreeze :p LOL

Yeah! That stuff fixes everything lol. Like the WD-40 for stink.
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.
i just let mine stink!! the smell of survival and victory!!....JK dish soap and cold water, maybe febreeze

Exactly. or ducktape of stink depending on how you look at it :D:cheers1:
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.

You must be from the Ozarks as well ;)
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.
