As it is simply an odor issue, may I suggest Germans, in general, stop wearing acrylic and other man made fibers AND wear actual deodorant or, god forbid, antiperspirant.
Sparky didn’t use deodorant when I first met him. A gym rat (with a fantastic ass, an 8-pack and a hero’s chin) who showered twice a day to remove any odor and well, it didn’t always work. Sparky didn’t stink. He smelled like, well, man. Know what I mean?
Dewey, you know what I mean.
BUT, not everyone liked what I liked. So, one of the first things I did with the Sparkster when I met him was gently introduce him to my Sure and all-natural fabrics and holy shit, did that change the world. As an American, deodorant is a birth right responsibility. With Sparky, I had to finagle a bit, finesse a little. Mostly I had to fight the “it’s not natural” argument. I countered with my own “It’s not natural, but I do it” arguments. Let’s just say that trumped his argument, hands down.
(The second thing I did was introduce him to pants that didn’t advertise his religion, but that is another story for another day.)
Give ’em a bath and a deo stick and Germans just might be on the other list. At least they are starting off ahead of the pack!
