As the scorching heat is making it tough for you to step out of your house, bad body odour might be causing even more troubles. Try these simple ways to get rid of that stinking body odour...

1. The most common remedy is to use an antibacterial, pleasant smelling soap and wear cotton clothes to reduce sweating.

2. Apply baking soda on the arm pits to absorb sweat and kill bacteria.

3. Apple cider vinegar, white vinegar and alcohol are other solutions you can apply on your underarms to reduce body odour.

4. What you eat is directly related to your body odour — so eat healthy and avoid processed foods and too much red meat.

5. Frequent consumption of garlic, curry, cumin and masala can be the cause of foul smell.

6. Avoid alcohol and tobacco — this worsens your problem.

6. The underarms tend to accumulate more sweat, removing hair by waxing or shaving helps prevent sweat rings.

7. Drink lots of water and fresh vegetable juices to reduce sweating and hydrate the body.

8. Drink a glass of water in the morning, on an empty stomach, along with 500 mg of wheatgrass. The chlorophyll present in the grass will help in reducing odour.

9. A few drops of rose water or tea tree oil added to the bath, will give long lasting freshness.
