10 Different Uses For Deodorant That Don't Involve Your Pits!

Where would we be without deodorant? Judging from some of the people we've sat next to on the subway, in a torturous B.O. cloud that shows no signs of relenting. Whatever you buy, your deodorant could be doing more for you than just controlling your natural fragrance.

Thanks to the beauty industry, deodorant is basically a requirement for natural hygiene. If you want to leave the house feeling (and smelling) so fresh and so clean, clean, applying deodorant tends to be the last thing you do to achieve that.

However, with so many deodorant products out there, it's easy to stock up on more than your armpits can handle. Now you can put those extra sticks to good use!

Did you lose out on a hot make-out session because you kicked off your flats and your feet smelled like the the local landfill? A long day translates to sweaty and, in some cases, very stinky feet! To avoid clearing out a room, swipe some deodorant on the bottom of your feet before going to bed. (Warning: If you do it just before putting on your shoes, you'll be sliding around in them all day!)

Admittedly, this shouldn't be your go-to or frequent method for getting rid of a pimple. Skin experts would NOT recommend it. However, if it's a few days before your college graduation and a planet has formed on your right nostril, try dabbing a bit of deodorant on it and that zit will be gone in no time! Again - only resort to this for EMERGENCY SITUATIONS.

If you like to keep a smooth beaver but can't deal with the razor burn, after you're finished grooming your vag, apply deodorant down there! It'll also reduce the presence of ingrown hairs.

We bet some of your grandmas have shared this tip with you! It's an old favorite that works, which is why it keeps getting passed down from generation to generation.

As the temperatures rise, we all know that shorts are a necessary weapon to combat the heat, but our exposed legs rub together. After a few weeks, it starts to feel a little red and raw between your thighs. Putting some deodorant along your inner legs will help stop the chafing!

UGH, Mosquitoes! When will they quit? Their bites can itch and swell like crazy, especially if you happen to be allergic to them, but it's not all bad news.

When you're out camping this summer or dancin' it up at a music festival and realize your pals forgot the bug spray, prepare to put some deodorant on your bites to treat the welt and stop the itching.

Some celebrities put deodorant on their hands to keep from sweating all over their fans. You might not have fans (you will in the future though, girl, we know you're on your grind!), but sweaty hands can target anyone. You know you've got it when you can see fingerprint traces all over your smartphone. BLECK!

So rub a bit of deodorant on your palms to avoid nervous clam hands.

Some of us have sweaty boobs, OK? If you suffer from this common annoyance, lift your tits and swipe some deodorant under there before putting on your bra. No more chafing and no more swampy boob mess at the end of the day.

You don't need a fancy fragrant sachet to keep your delicates smelling fresh. Put an open stick of deodorant in a small, mesh bag and place it in your drawer.

It sucks when you're halfway to the bus stop in cute, new shoes and suddenly a throbbing pain starts forming on the back of your ankle, and you just KNOW a monster blister is going to be there by the end of the day.

Ankle blisters can be a totally day ruiner. Stop them from ever happening by rubbing deodorant on the back of a new pair of shoes before breaking them in!

Now this tip is pretty awesome. Next time you're in the mood to give yourself an adorable mani but don't have nail polish remover on hand, use spray deodorant if it's handy!

First soak your nails in warm water and then spray a few spritz of deodorant on a cotton ball or folded up piece of tissue. Rub the deodorant on your nails and WAH-LAH! Old mani gone. New mani coming up!
