T shirt

Hi Dr Armpit, I've been trying what worked for you (wearing the same shirt so the good biome on the cotton t shirt could overtake the malodorous on the armpit) but I haven't gotten any good results. All I'm left with is a stinky t shirt. If the t shirt smells, will it still work? Or is the smell proof that bad bacteria have also colonized the t shirt and it won't work?

Hey! I understand that you try. But indeed, if the T-shirt smells, it is indeed a sign that the malodorous bacteria are present there as well. It worked for me by accident, I was not able to repeat it for other people. Instead, a real microbial transplant worked much better. Also, it is not the most controlled way of doing it.. We are working on better alternatives. Writting a grant as we speak. Best, Chris
