I do not know about you but I am the kind of person that will find a way to squeeze every trace of uses from anything I own and stick of deodorant is no exception. I understand that deodorant is conducive to keep sweat and stink at bay and this is one product that we most likely use on a daily basis.
What I am saying is, if you can benefit from a stick of odor-stopping wonder and make your life easier, there’s no harm in trying. Moreover, while its major role is to keep us fresh and smelling sweet, there are other unorthodox-yet-effective uses of deodorant that you will never conceive.
① Prevent from Bra Chafing
For those endowed with a large bosom, perspiration or sweat accumulating beneath the brassiere could often lead to bacteria funk and skin tags. Make sure to rub/apply a good antiperspirant underneath your knockers before slipping on a bra. This way, chafing can be prevented while keeping it sweet smelling and dry or else, it will turn into a breast fenland, nobody wants that, isn’t it?
Or if you suffer from gauld (red, painful, irritated, oozing skin under the fold of the belly or in the creases between the thighs and the groin area), it can be prevented by applying stick deodorant to the area after washing and drying thoroughly.
② Just bought a new pair of shoes that rubbing off your feet?
Put a stop to blisters by simply swiping a stick of antiperspirant around the sides of your clean, dry feet and just slip that foot back in. The deodorant works as a shield between your shoes and your skin thus lubricating those problem areas.
③ Feeling itchy caused by pesky bug bites?
I tried this one and it really worked wonder for me. Swipe the stick deodorant on the affected area a few times a day or whenever it feel itchy and watch the itching vanish.
④ Keeping down that stinky feet.
Swipe a stick deodorant/antiperspirant to the bottoms of your feet before hitting the bed will ward off foot odor and wetness during the day.
Deodorant stops moisture and odor in porous places on our bodies and our feet are one of those locations. Stick deodorants/antiperspirants will make the feet slithery until they are absorbed so make sure to wear hosiery or socks after application.
⑤ Trying to fit on that skinny jeans?
Swiping your legs with antiperspirant/deodorant will actually lubricate or grease your legs right into a pair of tight skinny jeans or anything leather-related pants.
⑥ Dry out that Zits
Stick deodorant/antiperspirant is known for its drying agent, therefore you can use this to dry out your zits, fever blisters and cold sores. Just be sure to designate a different deodorant for this purpose other than the one you used for your armpits.
⑦ Keep clammy and sweaty hands dry
Use unscented deodorant/antiperspirant over the palm of your hands to keep it dry. Or if you are a sweater when it comes to makeup, apply some deodorant on your face (a new one of course) and then apply your make up.
⑧ Mend that squeaking door
Rub a stick deodorant on your door hinge to get rid of that squeaky noise sound.
