Ways to Make Your Home Office Smell Better

Let’s face it: our home offices and workshops tend to smell a bit stale at times. A lot of hardcore geeks don’t spend as much time on personal grooming as polite society deems… polite. We have better things to do with our time than to worry about how pleasing our surroundings smell, right? Wrong! Imagine how much happier you would be at work if your surroundings didn’t smell quite so rank!

What happens if you meet someone who could turn out to be your significant other were it not for the odd stench that clings to you from spending so much time in a sanctuary of stink? Even if you’ve succeeded in shedding the telltale wake of foul odors, maybe you’d like to invite this possible romantic interest over. Do you really want your office to smell like an old shoe — or worse? It only takes a few minutes to help freshen things up, beyond opening up the windows, that is. Here are a few quick ways to make your home office (or workshop) smell better…

Eliminate Body Odor Tutorial: a “How to” Cosmetics Beauty Tip

Tonight’s final installment of Geek Eye for the Sloppy Guy is a rather sensitive subject. I’m guessing you know someone who could use this tutorial. If you don’t know anybody who has a B.O. problem, then you’re the one who has it. There’s one in every group.

For the record, I am wearing pants during this video!! I swear it!! I did this one shirtless for two reasons. The first, obviously, is because we’re going to discuss bad aromas coming from the general armpit area. The second is due to the fact that finally I can do a beauty tip in a way that no female can – at least, not on YouTube they can’t! So hah! In your face, gorgeous guru girls!!

I can’t tell you how many people I’ve met in person who smelled like they hadn’t showered in the past week of their life. It’s called deoderant – check it out guys. Pop off the cap… hold it about six inches from your pit… and spray! If you’re using a solid stick, then swipe that sucker already. For the love of all you hold holy and dear – USE DEODORANT!!

Whatever brand you decide to use is fine. Whatever works for you to keep that stench at bay is the thing you need to throw into your shopping cart. I personally choose to use a combination anti-perspirant and deodorant. The first part keeps you from sweating, and the second keeps you from being stinky! Win-win situation from both angles.

How to Keep From Being Stinky

Yes, you read that right. This video isn’t about Technology in any way. It’s about Body Odor. A reader sent in these tips. Believe it or not, many people don’t follow these simple tips every day… do you?

  • If you use deodorant and still smell… get a new kind of deodorant. It may sound silly, but some deodorants may not work with some people’s body chemistry. My friend uses Degree, and it doesn’t work. Now that he’s trying Old Spice, he actually smells decent, instead of smelling like a huge piece of rotten pizza.
  • Take showers at least once daily. If you work in a job or hobby that gets you very dirty and sweaty/smelly, consider taking more than one per day.
  • Use deodorant that dries or soaks into your skin and doesn’t rub off onto your shirt. This means the smell stays on you… not your shirt.
  • Don’t walk through the planters in parking lots… they tend to have doggy droppings. You don’t want to smell like you went to the bathroom in your pants.
  • Always always >strong>always put your clothes on after you wake up. I know some people that sleep in there clothes, and then wear them again the next day. You sweat a lot more in your sleep then you think.
