Major-league Anti-perspirant


One of our favorite summer activities is to take the girls to a baseball game. We have a great minor league team in our town whose stadium was just voted the Best Minor League Ballpark by USA Today last year. We also discovered that the team offers a great summer promotion for the kids called the River Bandits Kids Club. For $30 ($25 if you sign up pre-season) your kids can attend EVERY game for free throughout the summer! They also get admission to the bounce house area and a special Kid’s Club membership card and t-shirt. At $8 per game for bleacher seats, this is a bargain! But with summer baseball comes the summer heat. This means making sure you have a long-lasting deodorant to keep you from smelling like one of the ball players!

In my former life I wore a shirt and tie to work every day. You know what that means – yellow underarm stains on your white shirts thanks to the chemicals in typical deodorants. Nothing irked me more than having to replace an $80 dress shirt thanks to a $4 hygiene product. Not to mention the number of undershirts I would go through in a year. It was back then when I was introduced to Tom’s of Maine and their line of natural personal care products. They not only did the job of hiding any body odor, they did not ruin my clothes. In all honesty, it was a good product for me for 90% of the time. If I was going to be standing in a hot convention center for hours on end, then I would revert back to the non-natural products to make sure I got through the day stink-free.

Sitting in the sun at a ballgame (in a huge crowd) is also another place you don’t want your deodorant to fail. I learned of a new men’s line from Tom’s of Maine claiming “long-lasting” performance – was this the solution I was looking for? I found the price on Amazon for a 3-pack too good to be true, so I ordered a set. There was even a 15% off digital coupon to “clip”, bringing my unit cost to just over $4/each – shipped!

So at a recent game I put it to the test. The forecast was high humidity, so it would definitely be a challenge! In fact, the humidity was so high the game was rained out!

The one thing that didn’t fail though was this long-lasting deodorant. Even soaking wet I still managed to smell like a mountain spring (well, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but there was no B.O. to be sniffed!).

Interesting to note was the offer of Amazon’s Prime Pantry. In an effort to compete with ever-popular grocery delivery services, Amazon now offers up to 45lbs. (or 4 cubic ft) of select grocery and personal care items delivered for only $5.99. We compared many of the item prices to the same products at our Walmart today and found Amazon’s prices to be identical or within a couple pennies in either direction. That $5.99 deliver charge goes a long way when it keeps us from having to stand in line to check out, not to mention the gas savings! It’s a steal!

If you’re tired of yellow stains on your clothes from your deodorants, check out Tom’s of Maine’s line of antiperspirants made from natural ingredients. Then follow them on Twitter and Facebook to see what other natural personal care products they offer!

And if you’re wondering why our stadium was voted to be the best? Here’s but one example – take a look at our hot dogs! Not even Tom’s of Maine could mask that beautiful smell!

  1. We love taking our kids to AAA games in our town – what a fun way to test the effectiveness of Tom’s of Maine deodarant!

  2. I also order Toms of Maine for women from Amazon. I love that it’s aluminum free and also like that the BO smell stays away – and the price really can’t be beat! Nice post. Glad we get to head out to the ball park once or twice a year. It really is a fun place. 🙂

  3. I love Toms and am an Amazon addict. Is it odd that I’m not really into baseball even though I live next to the Dodgers and Angels?

  4. Your 100% correct spend $80 on a shirt and ruin it for no reason when products like Tom’s can save the yellow stains. I love baseball and loved your pictures including the rainbow. My daughter is interning for the Mets this year as an artist. 🙂

  5. Looks like a fun time on a hot day. Glad you had the Toms of Maine to help.

    I use Tom’s of Maine toothpaste, but I didn’t realize they made deodorant, too. I will be on the lookout for that.

    I’ve never tried Tom’s deodorant before, but I plan to now. The world needs more products that don’t use animal testing. It’s barbaric.
