Any suggestions for getting nasty odors out of the neoprene booty part of my waders. I left them wet in my truck for a day or two and they smell of something awful on the inside. I completely dried them out and turned them inside outside for two days and that still didnt' work. They are breathable part doesn't smell it is only the neoprene. Any suggestions?

Buy new ones?

I'd try a one-two punch of febreeze and a tin of baking powder left in each foot for a few days.

Bathing regularly is always suggested. Seriously, I've had the same issue w/ my new waders. They smell worse after 3 uses than my other waders do after 5-6 yrs. They may have changed the make up of the boot material. I'm going to try turning them inside out, hand washing w/ detergent in the tub and letting them dry. Other than that, I think you and I will have to live with the smell.

I honestly dont' think I can take the smell. I tried the febreeze method and that didn't work as well. I guess I'll try the baking soda method and scrubbing them in the tub but if that doesn't work, I'll just have to get used to it. I don't really wanna be shelling out money for a new pair of waders when these work find just are stinky.

Make sure when you're done with your waders that you dry them rather than leave them wet. I turn mine inside out, dry them and then turn them rightside out and dry again. The video Rolf posted is a good one.

Deal with it eventually you'll get use to it At least that's what I tell the Yorkers that moved in next door and complain about the turkey poo.

Hang them outside to dry it seems to help.

hang them outside, but avoid hanging in the sun, uv rays are killers on things.
also, what kind of socks are you wearing? cotton is junk. I always use a wool or wool blend. some of the new synthetics are good also. need to get the condensation out away from your feet.
I have a pair of hiking boots that were getting a little ripe, washed them with mild detergent, let em dry, then sprayed them with lysol. they haven't smelled in over a year now.

I have been just wearing cotton socks I will try the wool suggestion. I gave them a good scrubbin in the tub tonight. Once they are dry I am going to hit them w/ a lysol/febreeze combo and hope for the best.

Don't stick your head into them, your legs go into them.
