How to get rid of the unpleasant smell of sweat? helpful household Recipes

Did you ask yourself how to get rid of the unpleasant smell of sweat? Sometimes, light odour of the body is normal but excessive body odor can be a source to disturb others and very embarrassing for a person. A strong odour emerges from the body when there is hyper-activity of the sweat glands. Sweat, itself, doesn’t cause unpleasant body odour. Unpleasant smell occur when sweat melt with bacteria. Bacteria grow rapidly in a moist and warm environment.

Reasons of getting bad smell are lack of nutrients, digestive problems such as chronic constipation, and underlying medical problems such as genetic metabolic disorders, liver disease, or diabetes. Other causing habits of sweating include weight loss, night sweats and cold hands. Body odour can be treated with practicing good hygiene. There are also some simple and natural home remedies that help in getting rid of body odour by controlling the growth of bacteria and reduce excessive sweating.

Apple cider vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar is a powerful ingredient to kill bacteria. It also helps to eliminate body odor by balancing the pH level of the skin.


Moisten the cotton in Apple cider vinegar and rub your armpits and wait 2-3 minutes then take shower. Follow this treatment twice a day, once in the morning and again before going to bed, until you notice improvement. Instead, add one cup of Apple vinegar to a warm bath water and soak in water for 10 minutes once a day. You can also add two spoons of Apple cider vinegar with a bit of honey to a glass of warm water and drink three times a day before meals.

Lemon juice:

Lemonade is of effective treatments to unpleasant body odor. Acidic property of lemon juice helps to reduce the pH level of the skin, which in turn makes it difficult for bacteria producing bad smell to survive.


Cut a fresh lemon one in half and rub half a lemon on the armpits and then leave it to dry on its own. Then take a shower. Follow this treatment once a day until odor subsides completely. If your skin is allergic to lemons, you can dilute the juice of half a lemon in half a cup of water, clears the armpits by using cotton and leave it for 10 minutes. Then wash it with water. Follow this method once a day until you notice improvement.

I hope these two ideas will be relevant to you.
