One of the embarrassing things that could happen is when you get your shirt wet when you perspire…in your armpits! Especially if you are in date, event or worst, in a formal occasion.
Good thing I rarely have those moments 😀
Anyway, I’m just bringing this up because of what I accidentally saw online before while I was in Hong Kong. It’s a Japanese product to give a solution to those sweat marks in your clothing (those Japanese never cease to come up with unique ideas).
It’s really a simple idea, it’s like a napkin for your armpits.
Come to think of it, sometimes deodorants do nothing to prevent your underarms from producing sweat. You just end up having a wet but fresh-smelling pits.So this Kobayashi Underarm Sweat Sheets could actually at least save you from embarrassment, right?
Because it caught my interest, I checked if it was available in Hong Kong in those Japanese shops/establishments such as Sogo. And there it was!
Being an interesting product, I bought a few to store it in my Attic. Of course, i got one box for myself also and tried it out.
It felt weird at first because I got worried that my armpits would be sweaty. But duh, why would I worry? I forgot it’s irrelevant if my unerarms would sweat because it will be absorbed anyway. Well, I’m not just used to stuffing something in my underarms, aside from, of course, a thermometer when i get sick.
Anyway, I wore a shirt with a very light cottony fabric wherein sweat marks could be really obvious. I forgot i was wearing the underarm sweat sheet. At the end of the day, no sweat stains/marks were found.
Effective it is!
Here’s the product description I found online
