If there is one thing everyone on Earth has in common, it's that we all absolutely stink. Luckily we have deodorants and antiperspirants to help us get over that fact, but chemically speaking, how do these products actually work? This week on reactions, we're taking a look at body odors, and how we drape a tarp over them with chemistry.

Check out this great infographic on deodorants and antiperspirants from our friends at Compound Interest.
