    Currently using Mitchum, and it works like shit. But I also hate those ones that leave whiteness on the inside of my shirts. When I wear dark shirts it's pretty embarassing to have sweat spots on the armpits. Any suggestions?

    After googling around and reading the deoderant thread (http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=14400) I went online and bought some Maxim (http://www.stopsweat.com/item/Maxim). It was more expensive than normal antiperspirant, but it actually works. You apply it at night, and after a few days I swear I don't sweat in my armpits really. When I wake up my pits are a bit itchy, but after showering they're fine. I haven't noticed any other parts of me sweating more to compensate, which is nice.

    Check out the deoderant thread for other anti-p suggestions. I'd go with Maxim, but I'm sure others work too.

    Are you using Mitchum stick or gel? The stick sucks, but the gel works fine for me.

    Gel... I think it just sweats away or something. Thanks for the recommendation, Spencer!

    Antiperspirants cover your pores, which is unhealthy, whereas deodorants simply mask the smell. Personally, I use the latter; and I use Adidas Dynamic Pulse spray (since roll-on tends to ruin clothes in my experience) deodorant. It is fairly inexpensive and works quite well.

    Covering your pores is not unhealthy, that is a myth. It is harmlessly rerouted to other pores in your body. It is a myth as well that aluminum antiperspirant causes cancer or birth defects.

    It's an unnecessary risk I rather not take, plus deodorant works just fine.
