    Who is with me on not using deoderant? I rarely smell and shirt pits are always white. It's awesome.

    This happens to me for the most part, rarely encounter pit stains on my white shirts. I usually only work up sweats that come close to staining my T-shirts when I have run long distances and am exercising for a few hours in the heat. Then I shower usually soon after so the minimal smell I may have won't linger.

    I also can be out in up to 38 degrees (~100F) and find myself rarely sweating excessively to require deoderant if I am just walking around outside and about for hours at a time. This is to say I'd be without any outer garment like a jacket much past 30. I do inevitably start sweating like a pig in the extreme low 40s. However, my climate is not nearly as hot as mentioned, making sweating more so a slight summer issue.

    I think it comes down to largely body chemistry/ genetics. Then whats left mostly relates to ones activity levels, grooming, environment, and how you dress for the environment.

    You probably just don't smell it any more. It's like the people who reapply cologne every time they quit smelling it on themselves, while choking everyone else. I've known a few people who could honestly go without deodorant during the summer, but most of the rest simply didn't notice it on themselves and assumed that it wasn't there. This happens a lot of times with hardcore vegans*. My roommate was also like this, and it was awful. The room was gross when he stepped in. *My little brother's best friend had vegan parents who wouldn't let him where deodorant. He actually had my brother bring him deodorant in middle school because he always got a hard time about it.

    Better to wear deoderant and not need it, then not to wear deoderant and need it.

    Use Mitchum. I have used it for years and my shirts are still white.

    I should go back and edit that now. Unfortunately something in it can give a bit of a rash, and apparently my body does react well to it. It's a pity though, because it there's hardly any smell, it doesn't stain (according to internet reviews- I have minimal experience obviously), doesn't leave residue on shirts, and actually works. It's also cheap.

    use antiperspirant. stops the perspiration. also when you're looking for them choose one with a higher 20 percent active ingrediant.

    Shave your armpits + antiperspirant.

    This. Plus use Mitchum.

    You likely use too much deodorant. When it's left on your shirt, it cooks in the dryer and leaves the stain.

    If you're adding on more and more deodorant because you sweat..do what I did and try buying a deodorant without an antiperspirant. A lot of men are actually allergic to antiperspirant and it causes them to sweat MORE. I used to sweat a ton till I switched, and now just a light swipe of Speed Stick before the gym and I am smell and sweat free with no pit stains either.

    I got rid of the stuff completely. Bought a stick of Alum, it's cheap, lasts forever and after a long sweaty day there's pretty much never any odour. Check amazon, i believe there's a company called Christal that makes it amongst others.
