So I’m a 31M and love me some stick deodorant, I’m self-diagnosed with hyperhydrosis and go through the ‘rant rather quickly.
My least favorite part of using deodorant is opening up a new stick. It comes with that hard plastic freshness seal that’s squeezed in tight and I fight it so hard every time. There’s that little ridge handle and you gotta get JUST the right grip on it and pull JUST hard enough to get that sumbitch out and be able to use the deodorant.
So cue today when I open up a new stick and the freshness seal is full-on STUCK. I CANNOT get a good pinch on the ridge-handle and it feels extra tight.
And it was at that moment when the lightbulb clicked. “What if I just turn the bottom a few times to pop the seal out?” I felt like a caveman discovering fire. And then I felt like the dumbest idiot for realizing this is likely how EVERYONE ELSE does it, and how I’ve been doing it wrong for like TWENTY YEARS.
Edit: my original post said roll on deodorant but I just learned thanks to a gracious user, u/the_ill_buck_fifty, that it is stick deodorant. Learned another thing today. Also I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one and that I could illuminate a few paths tonight
Second edit: It seems there are quite a few ways to take off the plastic thing and to solve my potential hyperhydrosis. I’m definitely going to try some of these suggestions, especially using the simple leverage and twist that seems like an even more correct way. Thanks everyone!
Third edit: I’m glad so many people found this helpful; but seeing some of the comments it appears that if you try it the way I described, there’s a chance that it can break the whole stick or smear etc. So take my advice with a grain of salt and be careful next time if you try it this way. Apparently an even better way might be to just apply perpendicular pressure to the ridge and pop it off.
And I can’t thank people enough for all the suggestions on how to treat my mild hyperhydrosis. I happen to be seeing my doctor on Friday so I’m going to discuss further with him. Up til now I had just accepted my fate as an overly sweaty person.
TL;DR: Didn’t realize the correct way to open up a new deodorant for my entire life. Felt like an idiot
