That's why I suggested the wipes type deodorant(s).

You can use hand sanitizer as deodorant, not every day, but it works fine once in a while for an emergency. Maybe that would keep better in the car.

There are rock crystal deodorants - supposed to be more natural, but as for strength, depends on how much you sweat, I guess. When I was in my 20s, this was the kind of deodorant I used, but I worked in an office all day and it was air-conditioned - I didn't sweat that much. I don't think it would melt in the car, but read the label that comes with it. You can buy it in a health food store.

More info on rock crystal deodorant - pick one that has no aluminum in it. Look at ingredients to make sure they didn't add any parabens or unnecessary artificial fragrance.

There are some powders (Shower To Shower) that are also good deodorants. Might help you out a little.

Sorry, I can't offer any advice on that. My car doesn't have leather, and it leaked in the glove box (which is plastic) not on the seat.
If I were you I would keep on keeping it in the car. Only, remove it from the "tube" and place it into a better sealing case. That way, whether it melts or not won't really matter, but you can still open that case, get a dab on your fingers and apply that way.

Maybe it would hold up better in the trunk of the car. Not as handy, but you could try it.

The normal summer temps here are in the 90s, with probably around a week or so of 100+ temps. So it gets 150+ when the car is sitting in the sun, and there's not a lot of shade in most parking lots here. The last stick I kept in the car melted into a gooey mess.

Anyone know of any types or brands that won't melt under these conditions? I'd prefer to avoid aerosol cans because they might explode in the heat.
Use a pump spray. It's non-aerosol, and it won't melt.

This is what I use, and I always have a bottle in the glove box. No problems through any weather conditions:

Men'S Stock Deodorant - Men's Stock Deodorant (4 Fluid Ounces Spray) by Aubrey Organics at the Vitamin Shoppe

I'm sure there are lots of others out there on the market like that. I know Burt's Bees makes one.
