Re: Worst TV commercials...

I just think that advertising a spray that is effective for 72 hours may mean that people believe that they do not need to wash…..and if they do not wash their pits then, what else don’t they bother washing?
I have given up showering every day(well up until the hot weather) but when I do not shower there are bits that still get to see soap and water.

Re: Worst TV commercials...

Margaret, I haven’t heard of this spray but if there isn’t any maintenance in the pits for three days that could be a bit of s stinker. (Oh, I’m so ladylike in the way I put things).

Multiple brands of deodorant are telling their customers that their product will protect them from being ‘Smellie Nellies’ for between 48 hrs and 72 hrs.
Making them (perhaps) believe that they do not need to wash their stinky pits and bits.

Yes, what gets me is that the oldies in the ads almost seem joyful about paying for a funeral.

Maybe Dave in Germany could back me up on this one, but I believe that the advice from our military "is" that if you wash the parts of your body that "sweat" every day then you will not have any problems, smelly or otherwise?

When the greenies cotton on to this, not washing for 72 hours will become mandatory, all those resources saved by not having to heat water and the mountains of soap saved from being sent down the drain!

Though there will be the odd few such as us that just won't be forced to give up our ablutions.

Re: Worst TV commercials...

Right now I am sweating in places that I don’t think are mine.
I have just had a shower….walked from bathroom to bedroom and I am perspiring like a working donkey!
