So now that it's really HOT...

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Let's talk deodorants! I have yet to find one that doesn't leave white stains on my shirts, even when I use the clear gel kind. I'm using this now:
While it works well at keeping me cool, I always have to do a double-take after applying to see if there are stains on my shirts.

What's a good brand to try??

I am interested in knowing, too . . .

If you want the sweating to stop altogether you can try Drysol (aka CertainDri).. I don't think I've used anything that doesn't leave marks. I'll use Drysol if I'm in super hot and humid climates, like Hong Kong. Bleh!
I'm wondering about deodorants. The brand I'm currently using is good at keeping me dry but it does wonders on my clothes.

I need to know because I sweat LOTS in the underarms

The best I have found is the Dove Silk "invisible" . . . even though it still has white residue . . .

I use Dove, all their invisible clear or whatever they're called are wonderful! The one I'm using now is Waterlillies? Dunno, but Dove is awesome.

I second Certain Dri. So long as you actually apply it at night, it really stops sweating to the point where I don't even worry about it.

I like both Dry Idea and Soft & Dri's clear gels. They leave very little residue.

what i do to minimize residue is to first apply the deodorant and get a paper towel and wipe it off. well not wipe it off, but more like blotting. i use secret clinical strength.

I just found an amazing antiperspirant/deodrant. Its by Secret called "Clinical Strength". You only put it on before sleep and I swear it works! You barely sweat. I cant imagine its all that good for you using it all the time long term, as your arm pits are meant to sweat but it works extremely well. It runs about $12 cd +txs, comes in a box and can be found in the deodorant section in any drug store.

Wow, you put it on BEFORE you sleep? I've never heard of that! Does it leave any residue overnight? What about the next morning, do you apply any more?

i would consider a deodrant stone. it won't stop sweating but it works as a deoderant and doesnt leave chemical residues.

And how does that work? I've never heard of that either!

the minerals in them kill bacteria that causes odour. they cost about $6 and they look like a slightly larger golf ball that is crystal. you apply it wherever needed while damp. they last a 4-5 months. i buy mine a natural/health store.

certain dry also makes a roll on you wear at night before you sleep.. they have a solid you can wear in the am as well..

I have both the certain dry and the secret clinical strength and I think the certain dry night time roll on probably works a little better , it appears to be stronger

they help with wetness alot for anyone that is interested..
post #15 of 30
^^^ I use the certain dri when it is really hot too. You really only have to apply it a couple times during the week. It works by shrinking the pores, keeping your pits dry. There is some "compensatory" sweating as perspiration has to come out somewhere, but it isn't that noticeable.
The active ingredient is aluminum chloride.

Now the mineral crystals don't stop wetness, just the smell. The mineral is potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate.

Sooo, i won't bore you more than I already have with the exact chemistry but I love the certain dri when it is summer.
post #16 of 30
i've read aluminum chloride in the environment has been linked to alzheimers. i would stay away from stuff like certi-dry - people are supposed to sweat.
post #17 of 30
Neither the crystal nor the anti perspirant is good to smear on ourselves, actually. That's why I use it infrequently.
fncestudent, you will probably actually read these links on the chemicals in both so here you go.
I am a chemist in air quality testing, and deal with this stuff all the time. These links give a very complete description of both.
ALUMINUM CHLORIDE component in anti perspirant

ALUMINUM POTASSIUM SULFATE component in 'crystal' deodorant.

We should probably just go around sweating and stinking, but....

Yep before bed while you sleep and it works so well you dont even need to wear any deodorant the next day! dry as can be! You dont wear this one during the day only before bed. I still wear my Dove antiperspirant anyways.

That's the one I use. Little residue, good price, but when it gets really hot & humid here in TX I still sweat
post #20 of 30
I was thinking about making a thread like this. I am so tired of my shirts getting deodorant residue.
post #21 of 30
^ not only the deodorant residue, but the yellow spots on my white shirts/tanks! Sometimes its ok, but others it wont come out. I found out it's due to the acidity which varies from person to person. Is that right?

I bought that and it really works Except after I put it on I realized it was for night time use, but I still use it during the day and its very effective

I can't find Certain Dri anywhere Where does everyone buy it at, particularly in Canada?

i bought one 5 years ago at a Rexall/Pharma plus locaton.

Argh, I know the feeling I never used to sweat in the underarms till I was about 18-19ish I am planning to see the doctor because it isn't normal for me and I do not sweat anywhere else.

I have no idea what is causing it but my shirts are always soaking wet in the armpits, along with odours, despite putting on deodorant several times a day
