Have you seen those containers or bags that with help of a scent eliminating ozone-generating air purifier, will essentially clean your hunting cloths of all the odor-causing bacteria? Have you thought how great it would be to have one of those ozone containers and how much time it would save you? Then I assume you have seen the price tag and thought is it worth it. Well, now you can. Here’s how you can build your own ozone generating scent destroying box to store all your hunting gear for a fraction of the cost of what you’ll find at stores like Cabelas.
Installing your ozone generator on your tote can be done in many ways. It really depends on what machine you actually get. The best case is to use the mounting slots that are normally on the backside of the generator housing and hang the unit on your container. I would personally use a combination of using the hanging slots and peel and stick Velcro at the bottom of the generator to keep it from bouncing around.
Once you’ve gotten the unit mounted on your container, now all you have to do it drill a hole for the hose to go inside the container. When you pull your hose into the container, you will want to place the end of the hose in the ideal place to be the most effective. For me, common sense says that if you keep it on one end, then that side will benefit the most. So for my containers, I prefer to secure the hose end in the middle of the container so the purifying ozone air is entering the container in the middle and equally distributed over all my gear.
Here’s a tip or two that I think is pretty important. Use a rigid pipe like PVC or something to run your hose through at the bottom of your container. This will prevent the hose from being pinched by heavier items like your boots and essentially not letting your scent eliminating ozone generator to do its job. ALSO, don’t pack your container too full. This won’t let the cleaned air move through your gear killing all the bad odors.
