by Janet Spencer For most of our time on earth, humans walked around stinking. Deodorant is a relatively new invention, and Tidbits tells the story. THE ARMPIT


• To understand antiperspirant, you must first understand sweat. Sweat does not gush out of the pores. It hangs in the opening like a drop of water in a faucet. What finally pulls the sweat out is an electrical charge. A bead of sweat has a negative electrical charge. The surface of the skin has a positive electrical charge. The positively charged skin yanks the negatively charged sweat out of the pores. Enter antiperspirant. Aluminum chloride is the active ingredient, and it has a negative charge. The negatively charged aluminum shoves the sweat back into the body, just like two negative ends of a magnet move each other around. The sweat is re-absorbed by the body and the skin stays dry.

• Deodorant is another story. There are bacteria living in a typical armpit, which is warm and moist. The ammonia waste products produced by the bacteria cause the odor. (Sweat is odorless.) Deodorants contain insecticides and bactericides that wipe out the entire arm pit colony— temporarily, at least. When the antimicrobial agents wear off, the bacteria move in again, journeying from the shirt or other parts of the body.

DEODORANTS (continued)

• The reason we have armpit hair is because the hairs act like wicks, moving moisture away from the skin and keeping it dry. Dry skin is healthier than moist skin. However, hair adds plenty of extra surface area for skin bacteria to cling to. Shaving cuts that area down. • Mankind through history has worked to combat body odor. Early Egyptians applied perfumed oils to the armpit, and regularly removed their underarm hair. The Greeks and the Romans followed suit, but until 1888 the only remedy for B.O. was to mask the odor with perfume and spices.

• In 1888, a Philadelphia inventor stumbled on the fact that zinc prevents body odor. Zinc, like aluminum, prevents sweat from coming out of the pores, but it was decades before anyone understood why. He invented a zincbased cream called Mum, patented it, and sold it widely. Bristol-Myers later bought him out, and Mum is still produced today, being marketed mainly in Britain. In 1902, a new antiperspirant called Ever-Dry hit the market; it was the first to use aluminum chloride. It was followed in 1908 by Hush. Unfortunately all of these early brands of antiperspirant were sticky, slow drying, and irritating to the skin. Ever-Dry was so acidic it would eat right through the fabric of a shirt. • In 1916, an article in the Journal of the

For the month of December -

American Medical Association discussed aTanning study Specials-Inquire that showed a within. 25 percent solution of Seniors Specials all the aluminum chloride in time! distilled water would reduce excessive sweating if applied to the underarm every two or three days. However, such a solution tended to cause the skin to burn, sting, and itch because aluminum chloride is corrosive, having a very low pH value.

• There was a break-through in 1919 with the unveiling of a brash new antiperspirant called Odo-Ro-No. In ads in newspapers and magazines, Odo-Ro-No proudly declared that it banished “B.O.” B.O., an abbreviation for ‘body odor’, was a scandalous term. Previously, such products had euphemistically claimed that they kept a person “clean, sweet, and dainty” so to admit that people actually sweat— and to further state that sweat smelled

bad— made for a shocking advertisement. “Take the Armhole Odor Test!” challenged the ads, hinting at social disasters that might ensue if one failed the test. Sales soared. • A new product called Arrid Cream was introduced in the 1930s which contained aluminum sulfate instead of aluminum chloride. This was much easier on the skin and the product sold well. The next advancement in deodorant didn’t come along until 1947 when Stoppette Spray Deodorant became the first deodorant that could be applied without the fingers having to contact the solution. It came in a spritzing squeeze tube. In 1952, Bristol-Myers (producers of Mum) came out with the first roll-on, invented by a company researcher named Helen Barnett Diserens who was inspired by the newly invented ballpoint pen. They named the product Ban, and it is still one of the top selling deodorants today. • While scientists were trying to figure out how to get a man to the moon, the Gillette corporation was trying to figure out how to get deodorant into a can. It was a tough problem because the spray nozzle kept corroding or the deodorant would crystallize inside the can. In 1965 they got the formula right and introduced Right Guard.

• Right Guard used zirconium salts instead of aluminum salts. Although it was less irritating to the skin, it acted as a deodorant but not as an antiperspirant. Five years later, Arrid Extra Dry provided both an antiperspirant and an anti-microbial deodorant in an aerosol spray. It sold so well that use of roll-ons and creams diminished, and by the mid-1970s the vast majority of deodorants used in the U.S. were aerosols. Then problems with the ozone layer

Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling play the lawmen selected by the city’s police chief (Nick Nolte) to lead the crusade, with Anthony Mackie, Michael Pena (``End of Watch’’) and Giovanni Ribisi among the officers who join them.

extra: ``making-of ’’ documentary. *** “THE IMPOSSIBLE’’: Naomi Watts gives a wrenching, appropriately Oscarnominated performance in this factinspired drama about a vacationing family separated by the tsunami that devastated Thailand in 2004. Watts plays the mother fiercely trying to protect one of her sons (Tom Holland, also doing affecting work) as she struggles to survive, keeping the desperate hope of reuniting with her husband (Ewan McGregor) and other children at the forefront of her thoughts. Geraldine Chaplin also is featured. DVD extras: two ``making-of ’’ documentaries; audio commentary by director Juan Antonio Bayona, writers Sergio Sanchez and Maria Belon, and producer Belen Atienza; deleted scenes. *** “PROMISED LAND’’: Much as he had Ben Affleck as a colleague in both writing and


acting in the Oscar-winning ``Good Will Hunting,’’ Matt Damon has a similar peer in John Krasinski (``The Office’’) in this drama about fracking, the effort to find and market natural gas from underground. Damon plays an energy-company rep who arrives in a struggling Pennsylvania town to buy the rights to drill for such gas reserves, with Krasinski as an environmentalist who opposes his efforts. Damon reteams here with ``Good Will Hunting’’ director Gus Van Sant; Frances McDormand, Rosemarie DeWitt, Scoot McNairy (of Affleck’s ``Argo’’) and Hal Holbrook also are in the cast. DVD extras: ``making-of ’’ documentary; extended scene. *** “MASTERPIECE: MR. SELFRIDGE’’: Arguably best-known as manic Hollywood agent Ari Gold on ``Entourage,’’ multiple Emmy winner Jeremy Piven departs considerably from that persona to play the mogul behind a legendary London

department store in this drama series from writer Andrew Davies (``Pride and Prejudice’’) ... which makes its home video debut several weeks before its PBS telecast ends. Hailing from Chicago, Harry Gordon Selfridge was something of a showman as well as a business mastermind, and those traits often collided in his quest for success. Frances O’Connor portrays his wife. *** “ANY DAY NOW’’: Alan Cumming shows his excellence weekly on CBS’ ``The Good Wife,’’ and he does so in another way in this intensely emotional, true story. He and Garret Dillahunt (``Raising Hope’’) play a gay couple who try to adopt an abandoned Down syndrome youth (Isaac Leyva), only to run into miles of red tape when their lifestyle is questioned in court. Frances Fisher, Gregg Henry (``Scandal’’) and Michael Nouri also appear. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; two ``making-of ’’ documentaries; audition footage. ***

Are you entrepreneurial? Do you ever take risks? In my circles, I see many people who are so risk-adverse that they fail to ever accomplish anything significant with their lives. Whether this caused by fear, lack of self-confidence, or just old fashioned laziness – many people miss out on the thrills of living a full life; a life pushed and stretched by taking calculated risks. One of the unique characteristics of being human is that we each possess specific gifts. I’m gifted in areas where you may not be. You’re gifted in areas that I’m not.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

Q: Why do my two Shih Tzus eat one another’s poop? I’ve tried different products available from pet catalogs to stop this behavior, but nothing has helped. Any advice? I’m 82 years old and running out of patience. A: No one knows for sure why some dogs start to sample their own feces or the droppings of other dogs. Once tasted, some dogs simply view poop as a delicacy. Some even have preferences, such as frozen “poopsicles” in winter. There are several products on the market that you can sprinkle on a dog’s food, as you’ve learned. You could try some different products that might yield better results. You could also sprinkle on Lowry’s seasoned salt (don’t overdo it), but the results are mixed at best. Some veterinarians suggest the problem in some dogs is a lack of proper nutritional absorption, and recommend a nutritional supplement called ProZyme. Sometimes this works, but sometimes it doesn’t do a thing. You can booby-trap a pet’s feces by dabbing on unpleasant additives like lemon juice and hot sauce. However, you have to catch a dog in the act and quickly apply the concoction. Some dogs then learn to snack immediately after their bowel movements, before the mix can be applied. And remember, dogs who find their own feces delicious might view hot sauce and lemon juice as yummy condiments. One website,, offers a supplement guaranteed to work or buyers receive 120 percent of their money back. A leash with you at the other end is likely the best solution. After your dogs do their business, pick up after them. Once you get them out of the habit, you may not need to be so vigilant - or you could be packing plastic bags and scooping for the rest of their lives. If you’re physically unable to do this, the only solution might be to hire a dogwalker, or ask a friend or neighbor for help.
