Antiperspirant in new and unusual places!

Is it advisable to put antiperspirant on my head? If so, do you have a suggestion for a specific brand that will work under makeup and won't gunk up my pores? [more inside]

Help me buy the right deodorant for a sensitive, but powerful* person

I seem to be allergic to antiperspirants, but regular deodorant isn't strong enough to stop my powerful aura. What do similarly, uh, endowed people with sensitive skin do to be less of a nose-burden on the people around them? [more inside]

Ladies (and germs, if you can help) - Recommend me a deodorant

I'm looking for suggestions for deodorant only (ie not anti-perspirant). Because a) women's deodorants are not exactly abundant, and b) online reviews tend to leave something to be desired, I'm hoping you MeFites can help. Details inside. [more inside]

What is a good underarm deodorant for 13 yo boy?

Wondering if Speed Stick or whatever is an issue for my 13 yo son. Since he is growing etc etc, are there any potential risks of using regular deodorant from the drug store? I am NOT considering anti-antiperspirant, btw. Any suggestions that don't involve making a trip to a healthfood store or homeopath would be welcomed. [more inside]

Can you recommend me the best anti-perspirant deodorant ever?

I used to use Dove roll on but am currently trying out Nivea Dry Comfort. I'm not sure whether I'm particularly sold on it. While my armpits generally smell okay, sometimes the armpit area of my clothes ends up smelly anyway. Can you tell me what's up with that? And/or: Can you recommend some kind of anti-perspirant which also imparts a pleasant smell, not just a neutral one?

Let Her Sweat and Smell Nice While Doing It

Asking for my wife: Are there any deodorants for women that are NOT also antiperspirants? Looking for a recommendation for just deodorant for women. Why is it that men get this option and women don't?

Is there an anti-perspirant that won't destroy my clothes ?

I sweat a lot. A tremendous amount. I sweat when it's 68 degrees outside. I sweat every single moment of the day. I've tried a number of stick and gel and spray antiperspirants and had varying degrees of luck with each of them. My favorite (Mitchum's gel) generally works better than most, but, after it destroyed a really nice new suit jacket within two hours of wearing - I've got to find something new. So, here's the question: Is there any antiperspirant out there that actually reduces the sweat AND won't ruin my clothes?

Searching for an adult smelling deodorant.

It has been decades since I've worn deodorant. I think I need to start wearing it again for a couple of reasons. All of the deodorants at the drugstore smell to me either cheap, or like something a teenager would wear. Is there somewhere else I should search? Can anyone recommend anything? Roll-on, non-antiperspirant preferred. (Please no salt stone suggestions, they have not worked for me.)

Help me make my own anti-perspirant!

I got tired of normal deodorants and anti-perspirants -- they didn't always work, I don't like the way they smell, and the residue made my clothes discolour and eventually break down under the arms. So I started using Odaban spray, which I love. There's basically nothing in it except, I think, water and aluminium chloride. Now I want to make my own version at home, but I'm kind of intimidated by the chemistry aspects -- can you help me? [more inside]

Deodorant melted into car seat, please help.

I left a stick of speed stick deodorant on the seat of my car's seat, and the heat of the sun melted it into the seat's fabric. How should I get it out? It's melted into a lump that's stuck in the seat, and I can kind of scrape some of it off, but not all of it. My car also smells great.

Does shaving/trimming your armpits increase or reduce armpit sweat/stains?

I tend to sweat a lot on hot days and occasionally this ends up ruining nice shirts with pit stains. I've read plenty of threads about deodorants and anti-perspirants that could be helpful, but maybe I should address my long armpit hair. I can see both sides: More hair means more surface area for deodorant and keeps sweat from running (I think). Less hair means less surface area for sweat to stick onto but gets the deodorant closer to the pores. What's the way to go? I'm not considering shaving my pits, but more or less trimming them down short.
