When I take a shower at my apartment I notice I usually still stink. I can smell my armpits after a few hours or I will smell bad in bed at night.
However if I bathe at my parents house, I actually feel and smell clean. And the cleanliness lasts the day.
I use the same brand soap and shampoo at both locations.
So I know the most likely answer is hard water. But I’ve tried liquid soap at the apartment, it doesn’t help. Isn’t liquid soap supposed to work in hard water?
I keep the AC at a good temp at the apartment, so it isn’t like I’m sweating all day there. I have this problem in winter too.
So what are my options? Is it likely just hard water? if so, why didn’t liquid soap help? Are there any other explanations?
