    So guess what. I sweat a lot. I hate it but it happens. So the problem is that antiperspirants stain my pits white. This looks gross when I raise my arm and it ruins my expensive shirts. I haven't had luck removing the stains either. My normal deodorant was Degree but I recently switched the Crystal. Well now I have a rash on one side so I haven't been using it. I have stinky pits and I need to cure it. Anyone use Tom's deodorant? Should I just switch back to antiperspirant but switch from an A shirt to a full T shirt for undershirts?

    Help!

    Full t-shirt with antiperspirant. Go with a v-neck if you don't want the undershirt showing.

    I have on accident a few times since I didn't read the lable. I melt right through any deodorant especially if I'm active.

    I knew somebody would say something about that... :laugh: It's acceptable to wear one as long as you use it as an undershirt only.

    i wear tee shirts for this same reason.

    you can try soaking the shirts in vinegar or LESToil solution before washing

    i switch deoderant brands every week, rotate between 3 or 4

    That's what I used. It stained my shirts up pretty good.

    I tried white vinegar and Oxiclean. No luck with either even when soaking for a day. The hard crust is still there. I ended up buying all new shirts.

    Try putting the deodorant on before you go to bed. Most people sweat less at night and it gives the active chemicals in the deodorant more time to absorb into your skin and become more effective.

    No I'm sure it is the Aluminium zirconium tetrachlorohydrex in the antiperspirant. I have no issues with this new deodorant.

    Hmmm. I may try that. I still have to get something else since my body doesn't like the natural stuff.

    Use women's deodorant... :eek:

    [​IMG]

    I have not personally tried it, but I have friends who have and it has worked.

    Oh and about using deodorant at night. That is actually a bad idea. If you do not sweat like a pig while sleeping, try to not use deodorant, so as to give that area some rest. Deodorant can become toxic you know...

    I may have to resort to it. I hate sweating so much. I'm in an air conditioned office and I am slightly warm for no reason.

    I think she meant apply at night and not reapply in the morning but I shower in the morning.

    so i mistakenly said deodorant and not antiperspirant before.



    If your armpits are damp -- as they are after you towel off from a shower -- the antiperspirant will mix with that wetness and slide off your skin instead of into the sweat ducts where you need it most. That’s why it’s best to apply antiperspirant at bedtime, when your underarms are dry and you’ve got about 8 hours of relatively sweat-free slumber to allow the aluminum ingredient in antiperspirants to go to work.

    Yeah, the article says 'women' in the title...get over it. :cool:

    Don't take what I said in an offensive way... It was in no way directed at you. I just typed what I've learned. Also, I used the word deodorant loosely, because when I say deodorant I refer to products that have both a deodorant and an antiperspirant.
