I need a recommendation for good brands of antiperspirant

  1. Dec 20, 2007 #1
    Does anyone know any good brands of antiperspirant which work well, but don't leave white marks on shirts? My wife is getting tired of scrubbing the armpits every time she washes them.

    Look for brands which claim that they are invisible and don't leave white marks. It's trial and error, I have found that for me, Dove works the best.

    You also could consider wearing white shirts.... :smile:

    Aluminum chorohydrate along with some waxes = most of the white gook

    So, find a spray-on or a roll-on, not a waxy stick, one that does not have Aluminum chlorohydrate on the label.

    Maybe you could try deodorants, instead.

    Anitperspirant vs deodorant

    Or take the attitude one of my junior high gym teachers used to take: "A man shouldn't shower - it washes away his natural odor."

    If there is a lot of residue, you could be applying too much, and I agree with changing from a stick (which I use, but I do my own laundry)

    I use axe or red zone, and neither leave me with white marks... though I don't really sweat, come to think of it.

    be careful with axe though; it can leave nasty bruises, what with the herds of women that are going to be throwing themselves all over you :rolleyes:.

    Sound to me like you need a new detergent/washing machine.

    Try persil.

    Start fishing. Then it's always the fish that stinks.

    Are your pheromone producing glands excised or something?

    I love the Dilbert:
    He clobbers himelf with pheromone spray. A woman is greatly atracted and siumltaneously conflicted by his presence. In the last panel she explodes.

    My only use for pheromones is to mix 'em into an old clorox bottle that is half-full of soapy water. Attracts flies and they drown with a smile. Sometimes I think Axe must be made of the same stuff.

    I use this: Crystal Deodorant

    It's all natural, but isn't a antiperspirant; you will still sweat, just without the stink. I believe it's better for your body in the long run.

    This is funny. My wife uses that expression a lot. It might be because she grew up in Niagara Falls Canada.

    I can't stand the thought of plugging up my pores with goop. I use a deoderant rather than an antiperspirant.
