I've used Zinc Oxide Ointment as a deodorant for years. Works like a Charm! I apply it after a bath around my armpits and then put on a clean "T" shirt so it doesn't stain clothes. Once a week in winter and two or three times a week in Summer.

What I am thinking is this, if the reason for the body odor is not the deficiency of zinc, then zinc tabs won't work. If the body is highly acidic, then I can understand why the ACV works. Whatever is causing the BO will predict what will work and that is why some cures work with some people and not with others.

Since I started using lemon juice I never looked back! Soon I will try and see how many days I can go without using it. Even on very hot days (and we have had quite a few this year), I can wear clothes made of artifical fibers without smelling at all! Before, even with the best deodorants I would get to the end of a hot day and I would be smelling. I think that the problem for most people is bacteria, at least for under arm odor. Now even if I don't have the time to take a bath on a hot day I don't smell! When I travel I take a couple of lemons in my suitcase wrapped in a plastic bag.
