I'm sure the manufacturer would cringe but I use the carwash when get one that bad. POWER WASH THEN POWER RINCE.

Never tried Sink the Stink, but I use Simple Green in the same way.

Sink the stink brought my old ski gloves back to wearable. If itll fix 5 years of wet glove stink itll fix anything.

The thing about it is that its designed for scuba diving gear so you know it won't compromise your fabric at all.

If your only problem is smell then go with Sink and Stink. The pressure wash will blow off layers of suntan lotion and dirt that soap alone will not touch. High pressure soap and water will penetrate the fabric. If your PFD isn't really dirty you don't want to got to the extreme of a pressure washer. The pressure wash is a risky move and it could damage your PFD if it blows a hole in the water proof liner below the outer fabric but it works wonders on the outer fabric.

It's up to your discretion.

I have been using pine sol, its way cheaper than sink the stink, and gives you that fresh pine cone smell! I throw an oz or 2 in a 5 gal bail bucket(ha, remember when you used to bail boats!) an then slosh my skirt, shirt, jacket etc booties and around for a few minutes, then rinse off. I generally do it twice a season, and no one complains about my gear in their vehicle.

Sounds like sink the stink may be the ticket for my dogs butt hole, though....
