Hygiene Tip of the Day

For those days you'll forget your deodorant (c'mon, you know some that sometime during the next 49 weeks of this year you WILL forget) and know you won't have time to dash to the closest Kroger, Wal-Mart, Quick-Mart, etc., keep deodorant in an essentials drawer at work. If you lack an office door, have a busy thoroughfare adjacent to your office/cubicle, or if you have a window spanning your office wall and door, you must smuggle said deodorant to the nearest ladies' or men's room (please pick the right lavoratory), and apply it. It doesn't hurt to keep deodorant stashed somewhere in the car, too, for application after impromptu outdoor endeavors (hiking, horseback riding, running, or what have you), but not during the hottest part of summer. Trust me, deodorant sticks don't react well to the greenhouse effect.

I do that. I admit that it has happened, so I had to nip that in the bud by bringing one to work.

This post was an answer to the former one. But I think Peter forgot yesterday. And I know this only because told me he ended up following the current tip...NOT because I smelled him. ;-)

Thanks for the Tip Steph! Followed your suggestion this morning.

Here's a bonus tip: Bring in some that is just about to run out. Its a good use for it, since you'll probably only use your work copy rarely. That way you don't have to have a whole stick of perfectly good deodorant rotting in your drawer.

because said deodorant is known to rot if not used for weeks or months... Peter, what exactly is the half life for a stick of deodorant? Is it different is the aforementioned deodorant also contains anti-persperant? Please let me know... I am an enquiring mind...
