How did I know it was Europe before I clicked the link? I was expecting it to be France though.

Do you use deodorant or anti-perspirant?

I recently ran out of anti-perspirant and could only buy some deodorant. I don't feel like it is anywhere near as effective at keeping me nice-smelling than the anti-perspirant.

Obviously, I'm asking the Americans. Apparently Europeans don't use either.

Is this for the 3 days a year when it's warm enough in Yorkshire for the fatty American tourists to sweat?

AverageAmericanGuy: Do you use deodorant or anti-perspirant?


I use anti-perspirant as I'm a disgusting sweaty mess. Damned hard to find in Japan. I always stock up when I'm outside the country. I've been told the Japanese don't smell nor sweat much as the reason I can't find it, however, a ride on an evening rush hour train will prove otherwise.

I know many people that are fine with only (if any) deodorant though.

I'm a deodorant guy, but I also work in a call center.

I'm about to get on the train right now. No rush hour for me!

Didn't they do this on Capitol Hill after Harry Reid complained that tourists stink?

I never use antiperspirant; only deodorant for this gal! Antiperspirants clog the pores; deodorants just kill the bacteria that cause odor.

I find it horrifying and disgusting when people "freshen up" by applying deodorant in the middle of the day. There's just nothing good about swiping that stuff on your nasty pits and then using it on your clean pits the next morning. GROSS.

To freshen up midday, a splash of alcohol works GREAT!

I definitely approve of this img1.fark.net tag, subby! It kinda reminds me of that good advice I just didn't take.

These two thoughts are in opposition. Either you believe deodorant kills bacteria* or you believe bacteria can grow on deodorant.


/ *only antibacterial deodorant kills bacteria, the rest "deodorizes" (and often just masks) the smell

no they don't, they deodorize, unless specifically anti-bacterial.

Deodorant prevents stank from forming, however, it does nothing for stank that's already formed. And that stank's hard to wash off, too. A single washing with soap in the shower doesn't do it. Lather-rinse-repeat like 3 or 4 times.

I did discover that hand sanitizer and paper towel do miracles for wiping off pit stank that's already there.

Must be nice to not be so sweaty that you need antiperspirant. Wearing deodorant does absolutely nothing for me. I'd rather use antiperspirant than have to deal with sweaty pits. Not particularly worried about stink if there's minimal sweat, so I use unscented.

ParaHandy: Is this for the 3 days a year when it's warm enough in Yorkshire for the fatty American tourists to sweat?


I was on a section of the underground that isn't on the way from an airport to London during a heatwave a few summers back. I can assure you that the fatty locals are the cause of the odor. Sweaty Americanos have a very different smell than sweaty Brits and this was on the way from the airport to London, very little chance that the Americans had had fish and chips yet.

Why the anti antiperspirant or deodorant question? I use something that is both an antiperspirant and deodorant, does that not exist in America ?
 
2011-11-01 05:42:09 AM
Maybe they should get better ventilation

Deodorant only for me. But then the aluminum in most antiperspirants seems to upset scientists. Something about too much exposure might have an dementia link. Same problem when too much cooking with aluminum pans.

Too early for coherent thoughts or good links. Moar coffee stat!

No reason for stank in this day and age. A stick of Arm and Hammer deo. at Walgreens is less than a buck with coupon. Mine has lasted better than a year.
Why stank? Why?

Has to be the germans. You could smell them from 300 yards away down in Costa Rica. Felt like a cheese grater inside of your nose

I was half-expecting Australia...but England was definitely near the top of my list.

My personal theory is that it's people who shower before they go to bed. Having to be clean before you go to bed means when I see you at 5pm on a tram, it's been close to 20 hrs since you took a shower.

Deodorant is something you use after a shower, not instead of a shower.
 
2011-11-01 01:51:28 PM
Huh.

I use clear deodorant so as not to get marks on my clothing, or make my pits look white if I'm in sleeveless. All of the clear deodorants that I've tried have contained alcohol.

As for the whole "it kills or it doesn't," jingks, you make a fair point! I still think it's farking disgusting, though. Deodorant and antiperspirant should be used on a clean body.

he smell where people are sweating with nerves can be quite bad at times

A HA! I suspected that my stress-sweat was different than my normal sweat. Man, when that stress-sweat kicks in, no deodorant on the planet can help me (or you!).
