And then what—do you actually use it? Or just look at it and gush, Ohmigodthatstoocute. What do you think—silly or super? [NOTCOT] Keep reading »
“It never fails: I’m rushing to get ready and get out the door in the morning and I end up getting deodorant stains all over my shirt or dress. Do you guys have any tips for getting the marks out or just preventing them altogether? I realize I could put my anti-perspirant on after I get dressed but sometimes I forget and with certain cuts you really have to put it on first ya know? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.”–Jillian
