When summertime rolls around it’s no surprise that the excessive heat can make hygiene a real issue for some of your friends. And as a nice person, you need a nice way to let them know that they smell like they spent the night in a garbage can. Consider any of the following when you want to subtly make your point.
“I love being near you because French onion soup is my favorite smell.”
Let yourself start to smell terrible and then bring it up like “Oh, let’s all just shower and what-not, ya know?”
Get a British person to do it.
Say to them “You smell terrible, please.”
Apply deodorant to yourself and casually offer like you’re just being nice.
“Do you want a mint for your butt?”
“I hear there is a two for one shower deal over at the Y.”
Make them a necklace made out of car fresheners.
When they come over, light enough scented candles to burn your house down.
