I read an article about a hot box test with a German Shepard - 6 boxes, person sits in each one for 10 minutes - then sprayed himself heavily with scent blocker/remover and picked a box to sit in, dog was released and found him in 10 seconds.
Next test was same except he used cover scents (skunk, pine, earth, acorn, etc) - the acorn cover scent baffled the dog for 25 seconds (dog went past box he was in, sniffed all the boxes and came back to find him). the others were effective just not as effective as the acorn.
Granted that deer are not same as dog which is trained to find people. Deer are trained to avoid people, but seem to tolerate some human smell where human presence is common. I think baking soda is an odor remover like scent blocker/remover sprays but as soon as you start wearing clothes you start stinking again.
I prefer to wash clothes in scent remover detergent/baking soda - then when I am in field I just use cover scent - I buy the scent oils (acorn, pine, apple, corn) on ebay for a couple bucks for 2 to 4 oz - put some on a small cotton cloth and rub on boot tops and bottoms and lower pant legs. than clip cloth onto my stand - this seems to work well enough to keep the deer from being alarmed. I get busted at times when moving but they never seem to pick up my scent and I have had deer pass by downwind.
