I honestly don't wash my rain gear.I guide most days and dont have time for that.Use it when it rains let it dry depending on weather and stick it in my dry bag till next time.End of the season I do a smell check and might wipe it down with soapy water.That's it. Do I wash my truck.NO.I live in country and go down gravel roads daily it woukd just get dirty again next day and yes rain does pretty good job keeping it clean and my truck is white and they look cleaner than most other colors.sometimes if iam at a beach with my boat I'll give it a once iver otherwise no I don't wash it much.It's white also and looks pretty clean all the time.rather be hunting or fishing than cleaning.

I have my moments
So with all this rain gear talk I finally opened my dry bag with my rain gear in it that's been in my basement a while now.Was a pleasant surprise that no foul odor cane out of the bag.Whew.Worst thing I find I do is when i grab a minnow is roll it around on my left thigh to line it up for putting on the hook. wether I have rain gear on or not it's something I do with every free minnow I use.Its a small area I seem to use consistently and there is really no bad odor as i did get my nose right in on it.So just going to hang suit up on a hanger till spring.Heres my Frogg Toggs my wife bought and the largest smallmouth I've ever caught.

Without those free minnows you probably would not have caught that pig smallie.
