    I use Right Guard and that is fine.

    To be honest any deodorant other than Axe is good :p.

    Does How Stuff Works have a page for you bc008!

    p.s. I use a rexona roll on. I can keep it in my bag for work, the gym, uni, soccer etc. I'm a smelly, sweaty guy.

    *Shrugs* Just whatever, at the moment I have Lynx, which there is nothing wrong with, I don't understand some peoples rather heated dislike of it. I suppose they are more a body spray but if you don't cake it on there is nothing wrong. Masking bad smells with it does make it bad, so I guess don't use it if your a smelly little bastard. Not a fan of Antiperspirants myself though, react badly with my skin.

    Generally whatever Asda has on offer though.

    Anything by old spice

    is usually pretty good.

    Deodorant is one thing I am always very careful about when traveling overseas. As much as I love globetrotting, I don't like foreign deodorants. Maybe my prejudiced is a bit misguided, but when I was in Japan I ran out of deodorant about a week before I was set to return to the states, so I bought some Japanese stuff, and after I tried I spent about the next 30 minutes on the floor writhing in pain. That stuff burnt so bad! My arms hurt for about the next 2 weeks....

    I have never used one. I have a natural aroma of sandalwood.

    I don't tend to smell, so I only use deodorant at the gym. Adidas clear stick. Doesn't leave any white residue.

    If you smell excessively, you might want to consider shaving your armpits. I know it's weird, but many women actually like it, and it cuts down on our pungent odour a lot.

    aluminum is what stains the shirts i believe. adidas makes a stick w/o aluminum but it's pretty hard to find. but do take note that aluminum is what makes an antiperspirant work so you may still sweat -- you just won't stink and stain.

    i see that someone mentioned the crystal deodorant. i used it for awhile but it eventually stopped working. i wouldn't recommend it.

    Old deodorant thread. Now archived.

    I'm using, then as now, Sterilan (or Sure as it's called in the UK):

    Trim the hair

    The stains on the cloth are cause by the excess of the deodorant on the hair that then attaches to the clothes.

    I use the Axe dry phoenix scent, and I have no problems with it staining shirts. Then again, I also keep my under arm hair trimmed down with a pair of clippers. I can't stand to actually 'shave' it, but trimming it helps a lot. You use less, you smell better, and no stains :)

    I like most of the different Old Spice scents. Invisible Dry please, none of this silly gel stuff.

    Degree ultra dry, or some kind of Degree Sport.. which ever I buy

    Sometimes if I am in a pinch switching deodorant will make my armpits burn and have an allergic reaction. So I try to stick with degree now, though I don't really need it with everyday use (just really if I play sports or if it is 100+ out) sp it's not that big of a deal if I forget one day or another.

    I'll bet the guy I shared an elevator ride with yesterday thought the same thing... ;):D

    When I was in high school a rather opinionated girl I worked with lectured me about using Old Spice because it is tested on animals. Been using it ever since.

    Looking at the title, I was thinking, "that's not personal. This is personal".

    1. I use adidas' whole range, I use a different one every day. I buy everything adidas lol. Look at the picture and let's analyse it.
    • Light blue: smells very pleasant, smells the same whether a little/lot is used.
    • Green: smells nice, but pungent if used too much.
    • Dark blue: smells very nice as well. Slightly too strong if used to much.
    • Orange: lighter smell compared to others, smells fresh.

    2. They don't stain on clothes. I spray under-arm and on clothes as well. (you guessed it, they get sprayed on adidas t-shirts)

    3. getting them off, urgh, try soap, then dishwashing liquid or toothpaste. If that doesn't work you might want to soak the clothes in water with some detergent overnight (or hydrogen peroxide AKA bleach). if all fails then I can't help you.

    4. I think it's the alcohol/butane/propane and whatever is mixed in to pressurise the container (CO2?) that makes the whitish stain. I played around with a CO2 sprayer (just sprays out compressed CO2). It felt cold and made whatever looked white then disappeared. But I guess that was just a rapid condensation of water vapour.

    Well, if it's good enough to cover up animal stink, surely it's good enough for most people.

    Me, I use your basic Mennen Speed Stick. Can't remember which flavor.
