Today, I decided to use hand sanitizer to mask the smell of my armpits at work. Not only did it intensify the stench, my boss thinks I have a drinking problem, because I vaguely smelled of alcohol. I was too embarrassed to explain. FML

I got a small travel size deodorant to keep in my bag/desk in case I was half-asleep in the morning and forgot or if I feel less than fresh. Look into it OP, hygiene is good for you.

Trust me, if you smell bad and your boss thinks you have a drinking problem, the embarrassment can't possibly get worse than it already is by telling him you bit hand santizer on your armpits.

This may sound weird, but I have issues with smelly arm pits myself, and after trying all the conventional methods other than surgery, I've found that a certain brand of hand sanitiser works best for me. It might sound stupid, but it works better for me than any deodorant!

Deodorant doesn't always work, I know this because it doesn't work for me. I have tried anti-persparint too, which also doesn't work. Even at clinical strength. The only thing that works for me is certien-dri , which burns the fuck out of my armpits.

I used to work in an industrial park. Nothing but factories around for half an hour. If I forgot anything at all I was fucked for the rest of the day. Maybe OP doesn't work anywhere near a Walgreens. I know there aren't any in my part of Canada.

I don't know, nor care where you are from, but in my parts, we take showers regularly... Along with the use of deodorant, toothpaste, toilet paper, etc. Try personal hygiene for starters. Results may vary, but in most cases, they stay the same.

Perhaps they did shower in the morning and did put on deodorant, but they were working so hard the deodorant didn't work as well as it usually does with a lighter work load. Why are you assuming they're unhygienic?

Yeah it could also be humid, or OP sweats a lot. I shower twice a day and use the exfoliator thing. I was sweating like a hog all summer. But I do keep some deodorant in my office for that reason.
