Hang it out on the porch for a few days with something to prop open the sleeves an shit.

Get one of those blue inner suits...leathers slide on and off so easy. Where a t shirt under the inner suit and it soaks up all the sweat.

ive had it outside, and smelling good. as soon as i start sweating in it, wham the perch smell is back. i just "washed" it. i just soaked it in a huge tub of water with some mild detergent. the water was disgusting. guess all those dead bugs just melt in. now ill let it hang dry for about a week, then see what happens. could just be from it getting wet, then not letting it dry properly. like when we have those insane races in a deluge. it was all i could come up with. i was working on my truck, my arms were sweating and it was like someone rubbed a perch all over me. til i stopped sweating. not as bad as hockey pads though.

I've heard that lemon Pledge works after laundering with mild soap.
Also cats hate lemons and are less likely to piss on your leathers.

i like to be safe.

actually, the perch smell transfers to my arms from the jacket. its really the only reason it bothers me. otherwise i could stew in it all day. kinda like farting with your truck windows up. really doesnt bother you. but it kills anyone else. lemon pledge eh??? now thats interesting.
ill come out smelling like a credenza.

i mean, doesnt anyone else have this problem?

the only reason you dont have a 2 seater is because your wife has guns!
