How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
I Forgot about this product.

There was a product we used back in the early 90's while I worked at Chuck E. Cheese that was used to eliminate the odors from the costumes. This stuff worked quite well, albeit seemed a lil expensive at the time. I lost track of where to buy it at that time, because it seems the company went out of business. Well, I discovered it on the interwebs again, as it seems the product line was taken up by another company.

This stuff is exactly what we fursuiters need. Unlike endbac/walbac which dissolves foam, and using fabreeze, both which we are using 100% against the lableled intended purpose, and lord knows what the toxicity is doing to us. This stuff is made to be used as a way to keep costumes not stinking when you can't wash/dry clean them.

They also make versions for stinky shoes, and for those that piddle themselves.

I'm going to be trying to find a distributer to see how much it costs. I do recall the stuff working quite well.

EDIT: Wyoon found a supplier. they tend to charge $10 shipping for the 32oz bottle, so came to $38, and a 8oz bottle turns into $17. They also sell a Gallon and a 2oz bottle. 2oz seems like a waste when you factor in shipping.

Be aware! there are different varieties of fresh again! They make incontenance, Shoe, Equine.... so beware that you are getting the right version for your needs, you want the Uniform and Costume version. Some of you might find the shoe, equine, etc what you want tho :)

EDIT: Just got my bottle from satin stitches. Very fast prompt shipping.. and Oh my... I had nostalgic flash back when I sprayed it on my suit.. that smell brought back sooo many memories of my pre-furry fursuiting days :)

Thanks for the info. With the new costume of mine and maybe another one around the corner, I need to consider something other than what I'm used to using. I found a 8 oz bottle online and ordered it. Maybe It'll be in before AC. I'll try it then.

I will keep watching to see how your search comes out!

I mentioned this to a fusuit builder and they happened to find some gallon refills of the stuff.

(jesting) Does the product work on con attendees with an undesirable odor?

As someone who just recently got back from a con........ I actually think I second that jesting wonder. XD

Just whip it out in one of the AC elevators and start spraying. Voila! ;)

YAY! Long ago I used to buy a case of EndBac and sell it by the can in the Anthrocon Headless Lounge, but I stopped when generic versions were available in stores. Perhaps it can be sold in smaller bottles at FurCons by the con itself (for example, Anthrocon has a table/shop for their shirts & merchandise; before that art shows had a print shop for selling other stuff on behalf of the convention).

I CANNOT back this website up, I have not ordered from it yet, but this one has free shipping (other than a handling charge)

Be careful.. that is for a different version of Fresh Again.. that is for incontenance. You want the Costume and Uniform version.

-facepalm- didn't notice that one. But I did contact the company to ask them if they had any more large reps or if there are any particular stores their products are sold in. I'll let you know when I hear back from them.

Thank you so much for finding and posting this! What a great resource! I used to use Febreeze on my suits until it was brought up that it leaves a chemical slick behind. No way! Since then I've been using alcohol as an intermediate, but this stuff seems to really be a good ticket!
