OP is kinda strange. I thought it was a joke. My girls are only 8 but they play hard at recess and walk partial way home. They don't smell fresh at all. especially their head. Kinda old man stink. Maybe somebody is rubbing your kids down with a dryer sheet before they let out of school.

Yes but I don't have to smell it as it mainly stays in DS's trunk (except for the clothing obviously). Pads get washed at the end of the season....

Sorry guys, ice hockey trumps all in terms of flat out stank. My son is only 6, but I swore his clothes and equipment could walk across the room on their own after a game.

Your lacrosse stuff must not smell as bad as ours. I cannot keep it in the car. No way. Not even in the trunk. The smell permeates throughout the car.

You have the heat and humidity which makes everything smell worse. Our climate is very arid and while smelly stuff still smells, it doesn't get worse like it does in the humidity. DS will be down your way in March with his team....

I'm going to smell my son when he gets off the bus today. I don't think he smells "fresh" but I don't think he smells like BO either because he is only 7 (pre-puberty).

Well, none of mine smelled fresh...they did smell though! That age, around nine or ten years old...they go from that nice kid smell to what the heck?! I gave my son deodorant in his back pack to put on at lunch time he was so ripe.

really? cause my son is 4 and doesnt smell fresh at the end of the day--and he isnt even in school! he doesnt stink but doesnt smell like he just had a bath either.
he was in a part time preschool and we would pick him up at noon and they would be playing outside and not only did he look dirty, he smelled so bad--of sweat etc that we gave him an immediate bath and clothes went directly into the washing machine.

Fresh? Little boys that grow into teenagers smell fresh?

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Not on the planet I lived on. Wish they had. Maybe they did but I wasn't going to risk getting close enough to tell. (There were times I actually told them to run through the sprinklers before I allowed them into the house. And I'd make them strip down on the patio at that.)

Freshfresh: You need to find out WHY they smell so good. You'll make a mint!
