according to this you should stay away from blue, dont use UV brighteners and wear clothing that breaks up your outline.

Just did a quick google search and I think you will find the answer to most of your questions. Sort through the advertisements to buy their clothe washing detergeant and you can actually learn something I did!

I use Sportwash by SNO SEAL and Scent-A-Way by H.S. Scents fresh earth spray. Get it at Wal-Mart and seems to do a great job. Had a doe 10' downwind of me 2 years ago and she never knew I was there. Oh and I was on the ground.
