  • Ahahaha! That's just too funny. I pray I don't have to deal with it in 6+ years though.

  • Wow, maybe you should limit how often the boys can hang out at your house until they learn better hygiene, or perhaps set up a lounge area in the garage for them.

  • It has nothing to do with proper hygeine. It is the stank of boys in puberty. My son showers daily and uses Axe, deodarant, etc and he still stinks like a locker room.

  • The culprit is usually the clothes (or socks, or shoes) themselves, rather than rank b.o. If my husband tries to wear a shirt for a second time, I can smell it a mile away. Dried out then re-activated sweat is the strongest smell known to humankind.

  • LOL tyfry7996. I have 3 boys 23, 21, and 17. My 17 year old also showers and uses the Axe spray, yet periodically I can still sense a smell. You are right, it is the puberty thing going on. It will pass.

  • I know what you mean. My son has one friend in particular who I can never let take his shoes off in my house.
    Or when the entire of group of boys come into the house for snacks after they've been playing football outside I need a crate of frebreeze to get that smell out. :)

  • ugh my bro was like that he would shower every day and still he could have gave a skunk a run for its money lol. I dont know what happened but all of a sudden it just stopped when he turned 18.
