How Many Times Do You Swipe Your Deodorant?

Illustration for article titled How Many Times Do You Swipe Your Deodorant?

Pardon me, sweaty person. I have a question for you:

How many times do you swipe deodorant in your armpit? Are you dainty and only rub once? Do you go up and then down? Do you make letters in your pits? A W? An M? Or do you just rub like hell and hope for the best, knowing full well you’re a moist, disgusting beast and no one at work will ever fantasize about a summer romance with you? I need to know. Are you doing deodorant right? Am I doing it wrong? Please help.


In this case I am defining a swipe as ONE motion, up or down (or sideways? do people go sideways?), in your underarm. If you are an up and then down person, you are a two swiper.
