    Can anybody recommend a good deodorant that's long lasting, smells good, and doesn't leave pit stains in your shirts? thanks

    There's no deodorant that doesn't leave pit stains but to get them out cover with bicarbonate of soda and scrub in warm water. Hydrogen peroxide also helps. If you can find a deodorant in USA with silver particles and no alcohol your in for a win. Don't know if the dove men care line is there.

    Not true. It's the antiperspirant that causes the pit stains. If you wear JUST a deodorant, it won't leave any of the yellowing marks that can otherwise ruin a good shirt. I don't sweat that much, so an antiperspirant isn't necessary and a plain deodorant works just fine. I use Speed Stick deodorant and none of my shirts have stains.

    Yeah, that was going to be my answer, too. I'm a heavy sweater, and I've experimented for years going between antiperspirant and just deodorant. My t-shirts stay clean when only using deodorant. Saves money on buying new T's, because I hate the yellow gunky stains.

    I've used DrySol about five years now. In the US you need a prescription, but it's cheaper than Botox (DrySol is about $20/bottle and easily lasts six months).

    I use it about three times a week at night and don't use anything during the day. Problem solved-- Not a drop of perspiration, and you're wearing nothing during the day so your clothes are fine! There's nothing sexy about burying your face in an armpit full of deodorant-- the tasteicon_sad.gif

    Cons: It's a little itchy at night, and it can and will stain your sheets.

    I've been using "Dry Idea" for about ten years now and the only time it ever stained a shirt was in High school when i wore heavy white uniform shirts. Even then though it took four years of wearing them EVERY DAY for the stains to start showing.

    Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte deodorant stick works for me. It has a masculine yet very refreshing scent, lasts at least 16 hours a day, and doesn't leave yellows stains.

    Find one that's aluminum free and you won't have a problem with stains. I use Tom's...

    I use Dove +care Clinical. It doesn't leave a residue. It doesn't irritate me. It doesn't stain shirts. It works. It doesn't have much of any smell. It costs about twice as much as other pit sticks but I'd say it is worth it. I'm not sure how widely available it is and it is fairly new. It comes in a box and is usually sitting next to the other dove underarm products.

    This doesn't help with the smell, but it won't stain and is all-natural and non-irritating.

    I usually have a couple of different deodorants to switch off to, but this one is my favorite. Light fragrance - masculine, clean. Actually - I like a lot of the products this company puts out (shampoo & moisturizers, etc. I like the company - and the two guys who started and run it are gay - so all the better.)

    Our Story

    Kiss My Face is no newcomer to the green marketplace. KISS was founded by Bob Macleod and Steve Byckiewicz 30 years ago on a 200 acre farm in New York's beautiful Hudson River Valley.

    It was the dawn of the 1980's. A couple of (very) young vegetarians are living happily in an ancient house on an organic farm that was used as a hospital during the Revolutionary war. One night in front of a crackling fire, a light goes off and the two modestly decide to revolutionize the cosmetic industry. Lofty plans with loads of creativity and style are created. The Kiss My Face natural body care company is born, starting with some big, ugly, green bars of soap from Greece. But there is absolutely no money...the stage is set for a business disaster.

    The boys load the soap and some organic squash from their garden into their aging VW and head to NYC, all the way hoping the proverbial door won't be slammed in their faces...it isn't! Retailers offer overwhelming support, think the olive soaps are beautiful, buy the squash and even buy them lunch occasionally. The boys are smiling.

    Fast forward to today. The VW was traded in for a hybrid but the boys still have their youthful enthusiasm. Now, with a successful line of over 200 bath and body products sold in over 19 countries worldwide, KISS has become a respected leader in natural body care. We've gotcha covered from head to toe...with a few stops in between!

    TheGuyNextDoor saidDove has a new deodorant line for Men at your grocery store. They have a pleasant scent and affordable. Some deodorants can he obnoxious in scent when activated, the 3 from Dove are worth checking out.




    I've been trying out the Dove for Men pit stick all this week. So far, I like it.

    I got a packet of AXE: Phoenix deodorant as a gift. I like it. I know the AXE line is meant to get women's reproductive systems percolating, but I'm hoping it get some guys loins all tingly. icon_eek.gif

    This. I never use antiperspirant and never need to treat the underarms of my shirts any differently than any other part.
    Old Spice "Fresh" is my deodorant!

    Although I'm not a heavy sweater, I use Speed Stick as well and it works perfectly. In the winter months I rarely even use deo. I also shave my pits so that helps keep the order down.
