I just started college at Indiana University and I had an interview that requested business formal attire so I borrowed someone’s white Oxford shirt. Recently, I discovered my B.O has intensified and is very strong. I can’t help but wonder, can bacteria transfer and thus have the same effect on another person? I think it’d be awesome to research ways of neutralizing B.O. My odor just a year ago was little to NONE. Now I smell like a grizzly bear and Would love to look further into putting my pits back to normal. 🙂 Thanks, Cherish Scott Indiana University

Hey Cherish Scott, thanks for sharing. It is perfectly possible to transfer bacteria via clothing textiles. We are pursuing ways to counteract this. Stay tuned for more updates. Best, Chris
