    So my suit and especially my boots have developed an awful smell so I got this piss off stuff. It says to wash it with it then soak it for like half an hour. Does anyone have anymore instructions or can be more specific than "wash".

    Fill up the bath tub with an inch or 2 of warm water, dump baby shampoo all over.
    Wrestle that suite until one of you tap out. Rinse all the shampoo off and hang dry.

    If you need directions on wiping your arse, im hear for another hour!

    Before you hang it up to dry, roll it in a towel to absorb excess moisture so it dries faster. While you're waiting for it to dry, wax the bottom of your board so it rides faster.

    Have your mommy put it in the washing machine on gentile cycle, after it rinses, just ball it up and throw it in your closet.....that should do it.

    It means load it in your washing machine then add piss off and machine on high for 45 min on the warm/warm setting - for extra clean throw some SOS pads in there

    After that be sure to load it in your dryer on high heat with some busted sneaks to help get water out of the suite

    I've never tried the Piss Off, but I have used the ONeill wetsuit wash and I like it. I fill the tub with about 3 to 4 inches of water and then squirt some of the wash in. Put the suite in and shake it all around like you are washing it, then I let it sit for about half and hour, rinse, dry, drink.

    Only thing I ever do is hit the shower at the beach right after getting out, then go home and then rinse it off in the shower real good inside and out, hang on thick plastic hanger in shower to drip dry. Never used shampoo or anything and after years of using the same suite it still does not stink.

    That would only come from jawnmoronski, and he hasn't been around lately.
    Perhaps he OD'ed somewhere seedy???

    Piss Off is sitting somewhere in the storage closet at home, always too lazy to use it, but I figured you just squirt a little in the bucket (or whatever your rinse your suite in with water) and rub the suite around then call it a day. Personally, I like to trow my suites in the dryer when I'm done for an extra spring scent to them

    You're only supposed to do that with spring suites...

    I think you're joking here, but just in case, I think you'll ruin your suite this way.
