So my nine year old has entered a new phase, and it’s not a fun one. He’s entered the smelly foot stage. Now that summer is underway he has a lot more barefoot days and his smelly feet are more manageable. Warts on the feet (also called mosaic or plantar warts) are the worst because of the pressure of your weight bearing down. https://warts.org/types/plantar-warts/mosaic-wart talks about clusters of these called mosaic warts. Always wear shower shoes or flip flops when using public showers to prevent the transfer of the HPV virus to your feet. Recommend your little ones to do the same so they don’t catch the HPV from school! But that last month of school was a smelly one. Since his feet are in shoes all day long at school and then he wants to play at the park after school, it’s hard to let his feet breathe. So we had a “no socks” policy as soon as his little feet entered our home so we could help him with this matter.
So when I got an email from Arm & Hammer indicating they had a new foot spray that helped with odor control, I knew we needed to give it a try, not only for the benefit of my son, but for the benefit of the rest of the family too if you know what I mean. 😉
Arm & Hammer makes a new foot spray that is supposed to help keep feet from sweating. Their Fresh Guard Technology helps control sweat, absorb moisture and it sprays on clear. What I love about this spray is that it is sweat activated. It controls the sweat and absorbs moisture. This stuff is TALC-free and there is no white mess. So I can spray it on my son’s feet, let it dry and then he can slip his socks and shoes on after it dries.
While the foot spray will be used for my son, Arm and Hammer also sent me a body spray too. I’m used to roll on deodorants, not spray deodorants, but I want to be clear, this is not labeled as a deodorant. This is labeled as an invisible spray powder for your body. Like the foot spray, it also used Fresh Guard Technology. I use it under my arms. The Arm & Hammer invisible spray powder sprays on clear despite it being a powder. I love this because my current deodorant sometimes leaves white marks on my clothes.
So my experience with the body spray is that it does a wonderful job at eliminating odor. I’ve used it as an underarm spray, but I have to warn you, if you shave your underarms and then use this spray, it could burn. I’d wait a day after shaving to use it. The directions say not to use on broken skin, so you’ll definitely need to wait, but if you are accustomed to using spray deodorants, then you already know this.
“How does it compare to my regular deodorant?”
My regular deodorant is a ph balanced deodorant, but I’m finding lately that it doesn’t seem to last all day, which makes Arm & Hammer’s sweat activated spray that much better. I think I can get used to the slight burn simply because it lasts longer.
Does someone in your family have odor problems? If so, give Arm and Hammer a try. It’s a tried and true brand that has been around for a long time, so it won’t disappoint and I highly recommend it, especially for smelly feet! You can buy these products at Wal-Mart
