At one time I would have BO within 2 hrs. of having a shower. A bacteria or fungus was growing on my body. The bacteria or fingi got started because I didn't rinse the soap from my wash cloth after a shower and I would reuse it. Bacteria and fungi grow well in an alcaline environment which soap provides. I started rinsing well and I applied white vinegar to my body and the odor was eliminated after only one application. I still apply vinegar after a shower once in awhile. Bactteria and fungi don't grow in an acidic environment,which the vinegar provides. I've found a spray bottle is the easiest way to apply it.
