  • vinegar has a pretty bad odor, so it may take that funk away and add a whole new one, might smell like a pickle

  • Try essential oils...jasmine and gardenia are good scents. You can usually find them in roll-on little tubes at health-food stores. Both my sister and mother use essential oils on their armpits. They do not use any type of anti-persperant and do not get stinky. Hope that helps.

  • I have heard that vinegar is good for pretty much any issue you have. Couldnt hurt to try. Do it one day when you are home all day..then take a shower. Maybe it will last for several days or a couple of weeks.

  • I had this problem when I was a teen and I used rubbing alcohol and then once it tried I put on deodorant.
