Not me. I haven't used deodorant in ages. I find that if I shower often enough I don't stink. Deodorant gives me a headache. Must be the phthalates and other offensive chemicals they put in it. I stopped using that crap ages ago and since then I used a natural alternative which unsurprisingly didn't work. So now I just stay natural and shower more often.

Nope, I just shower right after the ride. Maybe that's why I never get any wheelsuckers

I always heard that it's not the deodorant. It's either A: the water used in laundry or B: the laundry soap that cause the stains. Something about reaction to sweat? Nothing gets rid of them. I don't know that to be fact though. Any chemists around? Never had the problem. Been using Right Guard anti-perspirant for 32 years.

I heard the stains come from a chemical reaction between your sweat and the aluminium that is found in most deodorants. I'm not a chemist of any sort.

What I do know is that although I don't wear any when I cycle (what's the point? I want to sweat out all the toxins and what not) the stuff I wear for work/normal clothes really does do the trick - it is the Nivea Black & White aerosol.

Aluminum Zirconium causes the yellowing stains. It is an antiperspirant. The aluminum clogs the sweat gland pores to prevent sweating.

Some studies suggest it raises your chances of several disorders and disease
http://www.livestrong.com/article/19...e-of-aluminum/

It is too much of a PITA to find an anti-pirspirant without ZrAl, I just use a deoderant without anti-perspirant. You can find them on any shelf at Target/CVS/Grocery. Degree, Axe, RightGuard etc whatever your favorite brand. You can check the ingredients on the back of the package, but also you can also check at a quick glance on the front packaging, it will say "Deodorant Stick" vs. "Deodorant + Antiperspirant Stick"

Now go put some deodorant on...you stinky bastards.

this is my understanding also (uhh, just not as technological)... I use old-spice... cuz it's awesome yo but mainly because it's only deodorant. It doesn't stain and last about 10hrs and the wife thinks it smells nice.

I quit using antiperspirants years ago for the reasons cited earlier, but just started with a deodorant crystal a couple months ago. It's supposed to prevent bacteria from camping out in your armpits and causing the smell. According to my wife, who (unfortunately for her) stands about armpit-high to me, it works really well.

In another thread, someone said that antibacterial hand cleaner works great. He said that he uses a dab once a day.

I'll occassionally get sweat marks but nothing that doesn't come out in the wash. I've used a few different deodorants and never had any permanent staining on cotton, blends, or polyester tech fabrics. I find it helps in general, not just cycling, to wash sweaty clothing as soon as is practical to prevent funk. A week in the gym bag in the trunk is just more than you can ask of any detergent.

Sure or whatever I happen to like at the moment. No stains. I think it has a lot to do with your body chemistry, my sons use the same brands and only one gets stains.

Never had a problem with stains, but I only use deodorant and as noted it may be the antiperspirant that causes the issue. I break out badly if I use antiperspirants.

In my bike club there is a rider referred to as the stinky guy. No one likes to ride behind him on hot days.

Maybe some of these earlier posters who don't use deodorant should ask their fellow riders how well it's working out.

Eh, that's what undershirts are for. Undershirts are cheap and disposable and you don't get white marks or pit stains from your deodorant on your more expensive shirt when you've got an undershirt on underneath. It also delays the sweat circles from being visible on your clothes. Can suck on a hot day, but you learn to deal.
