Which is better in promoting the good bacteria and making sure the bad ones don't grow: disposable cotton underarm pads, a used (but washed) cotton shirt, or a brand new cotton shirt? Thank you!

Hi Donna, thanks for your question. In our research we have good results with disposable cotton underarm pads. New cotton shirts can also have a good impact on the underarm microbiome, and we have good experience with this as well. Used, but washed, cotton shirts contain a shaped microbiome based on the person who wears it and how it has been washed. Best, Chris
