INSTRUCTIONS: When I was growing up, my mother use to tell me "never use deodorant products, look at me, my body became addicted to it!" she went on suggesting I use only soap washing at least twice aday and, if the odor or sweat persist, substitute soap for backing soda, for a few days.

SUBJECT: Home Remedy
INGREDIENTS: Dial - antibacterial soap
Drysol - perscription only
INSTRUCTIONS: I have battled b.o all of my life. What works for me is Dial soap w/ Drysol deoderant. Drysol is a persription deoderant you apply it at night. The doctors recommend it if you sweat alot. I do not sweat alot, however I carry an odor. This worked for me, immediately. Also, I happend to runlow on Dial so I used my facial soap under my arms, big mistake. The odor came back. You have to use a antibacterial soap. Hope this helps.

Tawas (white stone)
Take a bath daily. After each bath, apply tawas (powedered or stone form) on your armpits. No bad odor plus whitens your skin too.
Start off by drinking 1 12oz can of tomato juice per day for 1wk. The next week slack down to maybe 1 can every 2 to 3 days. Once the odor has cleared drink this juice on an "as needed" basis. The salt in this juice evens out the PH balance. I had this problem all my life and fell into a deep depression for years as a result. There have been days when I'd forget to use deodorant and wasn't bothered with underarm odor any that day.

With the recent concerns about the aluminum in over the counter deodorants not being good for you and clogging your pores, I decided to try something different. I just take a bunch of those flat cotton pads that people use to put on makeup, stack them in a jar that has a tight fitting lid, and soak them with rubbing alcohol. I keep a jar at work and a jar at home and swipe one across my armpits anytime I need to freshen up. When used in conjunction with regular normal showering, I don't need deodorant at all anymore, because the alcohol kills any bad-smelling bacteria. Another bonus from this method is that I can wear sleeveless fashions, and not have to worry about white residue. Plus rubbing alcohol is cheap and lasts a long time! Another thing you can do to reduce BO is to eat less refined sugar. Excess sugar will be present in your sweat and bacteria love to feed on it. Less sugar = fewer bacteria = less BO!
Here's a home remedy for body odor I got
from the Vietnamese newspaper.
My friend tried it and it worked great! All you lose is the two dollars
for the ginger.
Get one big piece of ginger and mash it
up. Put it in a hankerchief or
anything so you can squeeze it to get the water from it. After shower,
apply it under your armpit with cotton. You will get rid of it (BO) in
two weeks. Every time after you use it, save the ginger water in the
