Forgot Deodorant? Use This Trick


It happens. Some mornings we run out the house in a rush and forget little things like putting on deodorant. We don’t even realize it until we do that midday armpit check. (Admit it, you do it too!) The problem is, you aren’t at home and won’t be for a few hours and you don’t want to smell like you’ve been at the gym for 3 hours.

No need to sweat it, you can use hand sanitizer instead. That’s right! It works and you probably have a cute little bottle of it in your purse.

Here’s what to do:

1. Grab your hand sanitizer (preferably fragrance-free, but at this point, anything will do!)

2. Squeeze a dime-sized dollop in your hand.

3. Apply to each armpit. Give it a few seconds to air dry.

That’s it!

Why this works:

Body odor is caused by bacteria that can be killed with rubbing alcohol. (the active ingredient in hand sanitizers)

Let us know if you try this!
