Just wondering if there are any tips, tricks, or suggestions to reduce odor from sweating. I am a female, and when I get nervous, which is rarely, or during these hot summer months, I tend to sweat a little more than normal. It's not like my shirts get "wet" or soaked or anything, it's really not a lot of sweat, but it is enough to cause an odor that is annoying. I do use clinical strength anti-persperant/deodorant, but sometimes that doesn't help. I know that I do not have any kind of medical issue with sweating, etc.., but I just wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions on anything I could do to help eliminate the odor, or anythihg I could possibly use or try. Thanks in advance!
Try a bit of apple cider vinegar. Actually, perspiration has no odor. It the is the bacteria that breaks down the sweat that causes the odor. Try rubbing apple cider vinegar on the area to help kill the bacteria and odor.
