Where would we be without deodorant? Judging by some of the people we've sat next to on public transport in a torturous B.O. cloud, they need to use a bit more of it! But DO is so much more than our go-to defence against the sweats. Did you know it can help a whole lot of other bodily issues, too? Chafing, razor burn and blisters - this beauty must have's got it covered.

Thanks to the beauty industry telling us so, and it's amazing ability to keep B.O at bay, deodorant is basically a must-have for natural hygiene. If you want to leave the house feeling (and smelling) fresh and clean, applying deodorant at least three times before you even leave the front door is a must - we do it without even thinking about it.

However, with so many deodorant products out there, it's easy to stock up on more than your armpits can handle. Now you can put those extra sticks and cans to good use!

Did you lose out on a hot make-out session because you kicked off your flats and your feet smelled like the local landfill? A long day translates to sweaty and, in some cases, very stinky feet! To avoid clearing out a room, swipe some deodorant on the bottom of your feet before going to bed. (Warning: If you do it just before putting on your shoes, you'll be sliding around in them all day!)

Admittedly, this shouldn't be your go-to or frequent method for getting rid of a spot. Skin experts would NOT recommend it. However, if it's a few days before your graduation and a planet has formed on your right nostril, try dabbing a bit of deodorant on it and that zit will be gone in no time! Again - only resort to this for EMERGENCY SITUATIONS.

If you like to keep a smooth vajayjay but can't deal with the razor burn, after you're finished grooming your vag apply deodorant down there. It'll also help to hide those pesky ingrown hairs. Winning!

We bet some of your grandmas have shared this tip with you! It's an old favourite that works, which is why it keeps getting passed down from generation to generation.

As the temperatures rise, we all know that shorts are a necessary weapon to combat the heat, but our pins start rubbing together and it's not pretty. After a few weeks, it starts to feel a little red and raw between your thighs. Putting some deodorant along your inner legs will help tackle this problem asap. Phew.

UGH, mosquitoes! When will they quit? Their bites can itch and swell like crazy, especially if you happen to be allergic to them, but it's not all bad news.

When you're out camping this summer or dancin' it up at a music festival and realise your pals forgot the bug spray, prepare to put some deodorant on your bites to treat the swelling and stop the itching.

Some celebrities put deodorant on their hands to keep from sweating all over their fans. You might not have fans (you will in the future though, girl, we know you're on your grind!), but sweaty hands can target anyone. You know you've got it when you can see fingerprint traces all over your smartphone. BLECK!

So rub a bit of deodorant on your palms to avoid nervous clam hands.

Some of us have sweaty boobs, OK? If you suffer from this common annoyance, swipe some deodorant under there before putting on your bra. No more chafing and no more swampy boob mess at the end of the day.

You don't need a fancy fragrant sachet to keep your delicates smelling fresh. Put an open stick of deodorant in a small, mesh bag and place it in your drawer. Hello fresh panties.

It sucks when you're halfway to the bus stop in cute, new shoes and suddenly a throbbing pain starts forming on the back of your ankle, and you just KNOW a monster blister is going to be there by the end of the day.

Ankle blisters can be a total day ruiner. Stop them from ever happening by rubbing deodorant on the back of a new pair of shoes before breaking them in!

Now this tip is pretty awesome. Next time you're in the mood to give yourself an adorable mani but don't have nail polish remover on hand, use spray deodorant if it's handy.

First soak your nails in warm water and then spray a few spritz of deodorant on a cotton ball or folded up piece of tissue. Rub the deodorant on your nails and WAH-LAH! Old mani gone. New mani coming up!
