Plan ahead for Valentine’s Day, or just for the weekend. You do you!
The whole problem is that I seriously sweat a lot (A LOT!) and I’m allergic to the active ingredient in most antiperspirants. So I use deodorant and don’t get smelly, but I can barely wear woven button-ups or nice blouses with sleeves because I sweat through them. I’ve heard tell of the dress shields of old but have never seen them for sale. I’ve asked my dermatologist and there’s not really a medical solution, since I happen to be madly allergic to the only effective antiperspirant known to humanity.
Also jacuzzi jets and shoe polish stains, but let’s be honest, you’re here about the weed pipe.
Somehow my husband and I have managed to make it past 30 without establishing an adult-type cleaning routine. Meaning that we let things go for days (weeks sometimes!? I swear only rarely) at a time and then do a big intensive clean all at once. I know that ideally we’d do a little every day instead. Any suggestions on how competent adults might clean?
I have two bras with deodorant stains on them that I cannot wear with tank tops for fear of people seeing how gross they are. One is black and has white stains, the other is red and has sort of dark and splotch-y areas in the armpits. Is there anything that can be done to save these bras? What about my beige bra with the darker pit areas? In the event that I have to accept that I have ruined these bras, what can be done to protect future lingerie?

Grease is the word. It’s the word that you heard. It’s got a groove, it’s got a meaning. Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion. Grease is the way we are feeling.

I’ve noticed my down jacket is looking a little dingy around the sleeves, but I’m unsure how to clean it. The tag says you can wash it in the washing machine and then put it in the dryer with tennis balls to fluff it up. I’m not sure about getting it soaking wet. Would surface cleaning or dry cleaning be a better option?

Toilet smells! And sounds! And fears! Do you have them? Do you have a totally healthy relationship to the fact that we all poop?
I had a former coworker say you have to replace your entire stock of panties every three months, otherwise you’re gross and unsanitary. Is it true?
I dated a guy who peed on my mattress. Three times. He was very, very drunk each time, which I know is no excuse. How do I get rid of the stain?
