I think if I went without deodorant there would be some massive sweating going on.

What about the crystal deodorant. Do those work?

Its deodorant build up on the fabric. Use tide laundry detergent. If that doesn't get it out you can spot treat the pits with lestoil. Its a degreaser that breaks up the build up. You can find it in the laundry section. Most all deodorants leave build up eventually. Dry cleaners can get it out with drycleaning fluid if you don't want to bother with it. But know that if your shirt is labeled for a water wash and NOT drycleaning the fluid may alter the color of the shirt's dye.

Tide seems to be the best maintenance detergent for breaking up that stuff and preventing constant lestoil treatments. If you have hard water in your area add a cup of baking soda to the wash too to aid in cleaning.

Those crystals never worked for me. They worked for a friend though that was a guy.

No deoderant here.

It clogs your pores, and I don't want those chemicals in my body. If you are clean and shower daily, there is no problem. When I go to the gym and sweat and have a little odor, ( which is part of the male body) I don't care, it is all men at the gym, no one to offend.....were all in the same boat.


I also did the test, as soon as I would put deoderant on, I start to sweat within the half hour. No deoderant on, I don't. Only time I wear it if I am going to a function, deoderant and kush oil....but a regular working day, no.
I don't sweat sitting in a chair in the office, the a/c is like on zero. LOL

There are other men here that have done the same test.

I think it is a waste of money.

I usually dislike. just plain deodorant without antiperspirant. I feel like that makes me sweat more than bare skin too. Still going for chemical exposure round these parts though. LOL

I just thought that was really strange that deodorant did that to me. One natural one did not and that was it:
NutriBiotic, Long Lasting Deodorant Stick, Lavender, 2.6 oz (75 g) - iHerb.com

I use that for non sweaty days or bedtime showers. To me it kinda smells like a guy's scent but not "axe locker room" level. Much lighter and more natural. The aloe in it really does sooth the pits post shave.
It is not as build up heavy as conventional deodorants/antiperspirants on clothing.

If I'm wearing synthetic fibers, I wear deodorant. If I'm wearing cotton or silk, I generally don't bother with it. I used to use the crystal, and it works great for me. But it's inconvenient because I have to wet it first, and then stand there waiting for it to dry on my pits. It's only a few seconds to a minute at most, but it feels like an hour when you're just -standing- there with your arms up.

I've been using Dove "cool essentials" antperspirant/deodorant, but I really don't need the antiperspirant part of it. I'm not trying to prevent sweat, just smell.

I had OK success with a natural homemade blend of cocnut oil and baking soda. My friend uses this. I bought one with some essential oils that reacted with my skin, but it actually worked! No smell (and I am they type that needs deodorant). I was shocked. I am going to keep playing around until I can find a more natural an aluminum free deodorant. But definitely try this if you are so inclined.
