Maybe I should just splash Milwaukee's Best under my arms?

I just looked at the label for the hippie-dippy natural deodorant that I use, and was surprised to see that one of the ingredients is humulus lupulus.

That's right —
hops.

The label says "The antimicrobial action of hops inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria while reducing the possibility of skin irritation."

Funny … the hops don't seem to do a damn thing for my breath after a night of drinking.

Milwaukee's Best won't work. There's no hops in there, at least not for the past 40 years or so. :P

Yeah, but I damn sure ain't wasting any Hop Devil or Dogfish 60 Minute on my armpits.

True. It's interesting that hops would be in something like deodorant. Makes you wonder what else it's hiding in that we use everyday.
