It’s probably not a shocker that men sweat more than women. Do you remember junior high? The boys’ locker room is the world’s introduction to the fact that guys are sweaty and smelly. Emily loves to joke with me that soon after she hugs or cuddles me I start sweating. Sorry babe, I’m a dude. I sweat for a living; you’re welcome. But the studies are in. I can rest easy. I’m not alone.
Whether a man is sweaty from landscaping or smelly from the gym, no one wants to sit in his own stink and dirt for longer than he has to. And wives and fiancées and girlfriends love finding their men smelling and feeling clean, like handsome Sasquatches.
For this we need soap. And lots of it. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t get particularly fired up about soap, although the good lads behind Dr. Squatch are changing that for me. Reading up on how soap should be made has been enlightening, but also nerve-racking after realizing for years I’ve cozied up to synthetic chemicals. Not cool.
