Banish that Sweaty Boy Smell

About halfway though 2nd grade, Caleb started coming home from school stinking. Not like BO – more like sweaty socks. It drove me crazy because I no longer wanted to cuddle my little man. He was only in second grade! I started having him wear deodorant, but it didn’t do a whole lot because it wasn’t BO, it was just recess sweat. My friend, Crystal (a Mom of 4 boys), told me the secret to banishing that sweaty boy smell was to have him use Men’s Body Wash in the shower, not just as body wash but also as shampoo.

Can I just tell you how much I love smelling my boy now! Hew smells good all day long!!! One day he didn’t have his body wash in the shower and when he came home from school I almost choked on the smell. He’s been using it for about 2 months now and it’s been heaven! I buy whatever is on sale and am not brand specific. He has used Adidas wash and also Gillette wash and they both have worked great. No more sweaty smelling boys in this house!
