What to Do When You Forget to Put on Deodorant

Sniff, sniff: You just failed your midday armpit check. But you’re at work. And you have a meeting. And the room is 86 degrees. Don’t sweat it. You can use... HAND SANITIZER. Here’s how:

What you need:

Hand sanitizer (fragrance-free is ideal, but any kind works).

What you do:

Rub a dollop onto each armpit. Give it a few seconds to air dry.

Why it’s genius:

Body odor is caused by bacteria. Rubbing alcohol (a main ingredient in hand sanitizer) kills bacteria.

There’s a bonus:

The alcohol also helps evaporate sweat. Bye bye, smelly pit stains.
