Like everything else, and all of us, the activated charcoal hunting suit has its limits. After a few days tramping around the woods, the activated charcoal eventually gets saturated and can't absorb additional odor. Also, if you don't store your suit in an airtight container, saturation will occur, and the suit will only be good as a Halloween costume.
Fortunately, there is a way to restore your suit to full effectiveness. Just put your suit through a clothes dryer, on high, for at least 45 minutes. When charcoal is heated long enough, absorbed gases are expelled and your charcoal suit is ready for another foray into the wild.
