How's it hangin'?

It's time to talk about something that's not so pretty.

Hang sweat.

You know, that nice schweaty fold under your hang and going down into your thigh cracks after a hard workout?  If you don't know what I'm talking about, this post is not for you.  You can go back and enjoy your taut stomach with no overhang while I make jealousy fueled gestures behind your back.  For the rest of you who know and loathe the hang sweat and potential rashes that area can bring, let me introduce you to the most horribly named item that can help with that issue...FungaSoap Cleansing Wash.



It contains tea tree oil and is an anti-fungal.  I was talking to my gynie about it a few years ago and she's noticed almost zero irritation compared to how it used to look in the gut and nether areas.  I just lather up, slap it wherever there is chafing or the possibility of it and this stuff has seriously worked wonders.  I know some people get sores and stuff but you shouldn't use this on broken skin but if you can get that taken care of with a zinc based cream like diaper rash cream then you can move on to this stuff for maintenance.

Some people are turned off by the smell because it smells a little botanically medicinal but I've always thought it smelled good.  Just wanted to give a heads up since some people gripe about that on Amazon.  But unless you're going to spend your day with your head in your gut and/or punani area, then it shouldn't be an issue, ya know?  I've even used it as a face wash for stubborn breakouts and it makes my face nice and clean.  It has a ton of uses that people suggest in the reviews.

So for me personally, I love the stuff and thought if anyone else had that issue, you might like a heads up!  Hey, weight related topics ain't always pretty people!

I won't ask if you suffer from hang sweat so feel free to comment what you're comfortable with!  HA!

  1. I never realized you could use that stuff for the hang but I have used it for a spot on my leg that has been stubborn and it definitely works wonders there!

  2. I bet this would be good for hubby's feet.

    1. Indeed! It was recommended for nasty bouts with athletes foot, nail fungus, as well.

  3. Oddly enough, that has not been a problem for me. It is not due to a lack of hang, I assure you. (Shall I send you $.08 directly to compensate for the lack of Amazon order?)

    1. Good on ya! I haven't had the kind of problems I've read about thankfully but I don't want to borrow trouble on that front so I'll keep latherin' up. Bank the $.08 for yourself. ;)

  4. Great idea for under-boob sweat, too. I get crazy heat rash from sweat exercise bras.

    Hang sweat is a great term. I'm going to make it my goal to use it today.

    1. Absolutely! I automatically get under there as well and I have far less redness than I used to! I hope you get to use the term by day's end! :)

  6. I really dislike the amount of pooch I have, but it really doesn't hang, so I guess I'm lucky. The boob sweat though ... I've taken the old cloth diapers (they were never actually used as diapers for the kids, more for burping)and I keep them in my gym. As I workout, I tuck it up in there to help control the drip... (benefit of having a home gym, no one looks at me funny. I also wear slippers on the elliptical instead of shoes).

    1. You are lucky indeed and yes, this is good for boob sweat too! I use it for that to keep things red free. Good way to repurpose the cloth diapers! :)

  7. I will pass this along to my other friends as it IS an issue for so many of us. I have found using a stick based deodorant also works like a charm...just as it does under arms. Not pretty, but keeping it real as always, Anele.

    1. I'll have to give that a go next week when we've got more intense workouts scheduled!

      You know I do!

  8. Wow, I've got to say a big thank you for this. I DO have this...and summer makes it even worse. I wonder if I could use it between the tatas because I have the same issue there (being that big-busted gal that I am)as I do down yonder. I'm going to give this a try! You rock, mamasita!!

  9. I'm looking at my Woman's Day magazine and there is an ad in here for Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel. They say it dries on contact, has a silky, smooth feel, and lasts as long as you need it to. Hmmmm....perhaps something to try? Lemme know what you think.

    1. I tried a sample of that stuff and I don't know if I didn't have enough to have it work effectively or what but it didn't do much for me. Let me know if you have better luck!
