But it turns out we've been applying our deodorant wrong, and surprisingly spraying in the morning straight after a shower is the worst technique.
TV doc Dawn Harper, of Embarrassing Bodies fame, revealed we should be spraying at night, just before bed, for the best results.
She advised: "Apply at night before going to bed to allow to dry fully. Leave on overnight and wash off any residue in the morning with soap and water."
Well that's our morning routine turned on its head – and don't even think about spraying straight after a shower, as your pits may still be damp.
Speaking to promote Perspirex Anti-Perspirant, she added: "To get the best results you apply Perspirex to completely dry skin".
Dr Dawn also recommends using a HAIR DRYER on your pits – yes really!
She said: “You should allow your antiperspirant to dry fully. You can use a hairdryer on the cool setting if necessary.”
And, most importantly, make sure your deodorant is actually an anti-perspirant one, as many sprays are just designed to smell nice – as opposed to actually stopping you from sweating.
