    With the weather getting warmer im starting to stink a bit. Shoes and ass. I take two showers a day but still when i get off work im scared to go in the office to turn in stuff sometimes because i probably stink. And also since its getting hot out im chaffing. What do driver do to prevent these two things?

    If you are going to stink up the place--in the office is a great place to do it. It lets them know you're working hard.

    Chafing is cause from damage to the skin from friction of some sort. Most people associate it with moisture but that's not always the case lack of moisture can be just as much as a problem.

    A couple of years back I had chafing issues I tried everything form changing the type of under wear I wore to baby powered nothing really worked. than it just stopped I haven't had any issues since and I haven't a clue why but I know I lost a good 25 lbs and changed the way I eat even it the hot summer days when I sweat like a pig I have no issues.

    As far a smelling your really worrying to much about nothing. That what happens when you actually do some manual labor for a living you sweat and end up not smelling like roses get over it nobody cares even the OMS clerk that works in the office it's come with the job.

    Having some BO after a hard days work is one thing but when you show up in the morning wearing the same clothes you have all week and reeking to high heaven from not showering for the week its a whole different ballgame. Most ever center has one or two of those slobs.

    upsbeernut Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes i dont.

    Spray your shoes occassionally, wear extra deodorant, put cologne on, (i put it in my hair) and for chaffing vaseline. Never heard of anyones butt smelling but i guess wet the toliet paper with liquid soap after completing your duty.

    I'm not sure which is worse----the driver who stinks after a hard day's work or the driver who stinks because he showered with cologne.

    If one is washing daily, using deodorant, and wearing clean clothes, how is it possible to smell? Even in the peak heat of July, I may come home sweaty, but never is there an odor.

    Shoes are another issue. Using more than one pair so the shoe can air out for a day or so, is the key so bacteria can be kept in check. Charcoal innersoles are also helpful.
