    Try soaking them in some enzymatic cleaner like Bac-out. You need something to eat the bacteria that are causing the smell.

    There's a product called Sink the Stink that works well. I don't know the active ingredient, but it's an enzyme that's also found in other products. Dive shops sell it, too.

    Dis is the original wetsuite tread. Looks like there were 4 wetsuite treads in 2010 before Swellers realized the profound proper spelling of the term four years later.

    Sleep in your wetsuite, but make sure you do it two consecutive nights.
