I’m with you ITG, back in the old days we used to wash and get weekly baths! 😂

Modern synthetic fabrics don’t help. Whilst they’re comfortable to wear they can get smelly very quickly.

Well having checked his room after he left for school I'm not sure he did use the deo anyway but he did get in the shower so I just shouted *pits and bits* to him! :-)

Triple Dry is good - antiperspirant is more useful than deodorant.

Aaargh! OH is so angry with Billy, who stays in bed all day and will help around the house only on his terms. I wish they would just have it out with one another and stop putting me in the middle.

My three have all been pretty much self-regulating and clean, but not obsessively so. My main peeve with my youngest is that she's gone form not putting her clothes in the wash to chucking everything in when undressing even if she's only worn something for an hour or two.

But I think OH is letting his issues "I haven't had a day off since August" get in the way also.

Got something to say?
