    Yeah, just another symptom to add to the if its not long enough already!!!

    Solution = having got one I'm afraid. I just change deodorant frequently in the hope I find one that works well. Resort to using my ol' man's at certain times!!

    I make a conscious effort to pre-wash the armpits of all my tops too a the w/machine still struggles to cope with them at 50°!!

    Just have to take my sister's lead and wear cotton/linen tops, take her fan out with her.....and a deodorant in her bag!!!

    (Mitchem is ssupposed to be good - unless you're me!!) - the original Sweaty Betty!!!:-)

    Yes, just like when we went through puberty, there is a phase where body odor is Unique at best. I used a "prescription" strength deoderant after my daily shower. I also ordered and tried a stainless steel bar (the ones used for hands to remove onion/garlic smells) it helped to get rid of odor prior to applying deoderant. That phase came and went pretty quick for me. Who knows if it'll return-sure hope not!biggrin

    Yes, I definitely found this a problem and was going to the loos at lunchtime to wash and re-fresh deodarant.  Mitchum did it for me eventually.  Hope this helps .. the bad odour disappears .... my partner didn't notice it, if this helps, I think we notice it more, but that doesn't help our peace of mind.  Try Mitchum. x
