I officially have 2 teen boys in the house and one thing I’ve always had them promise me is that they’d help to keep their bathroom clean and not smelling like a locker room. Funny thing is, to me a locker room either smells like wet towels and dirty boys or like an over spray of body spray or cologne. When AXE asked to sponsor a post, I knew instantly that I wanted to share a fun “locker room” printable AND how to keep your bathroom from smelling like a locker room by showing you how to teach your teens to use AXE body spray (properly, too!). I’m sure your sons love the product as much as mine!
First of all, do your kids know the difference between body spray and dry spray? AXE has both products and they are awesome for different things. Body spray keeps you smelling fresh and the dry spray helps you stay dry.
We got a few new products to try out here in our locker room – AXE YOU Body Spray, AXE Signature Gold Dry Spray, and AXE Signature Night Dry Spray. My boys get the dry spray and spray it under their arms in place of antiperspirant sticks. They never sprayed too much there. For the body spray, I think they watched their friends spray on a little too much after gym class because we ended up working out a simple way to put it on without over spraying (I know you know what I mean).
HOW TO TEACH YOUR TEEN TO USE AXE BODY SPRAY
- Grab the AXE body spray of your choice (not dry spray, that’s for under the arms).
- Twist the top to reveal the button and nozzle.
- Spray over your chest in the shape of a “7” only long enough to say the word “AXE”.
Here is a fun video for your boys to watch to teach them the difference between dry spray and body spray AND how to apply it : http://bit.ly/2vra0KY
So simple, but SO effective! Now getting ready in the morning, I don’t have to worry about the boys (or the bathroom) smelling like a locker room of kids spraying way too much. As for the wet towels… we’re still working on that.
FREE PRINTABLE LOCKER ROOM SIGN
I made up a fun “locker room” sign for the boys’ bathroom and thought I’d share it here as well. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to mount it on wood or frame it, so for now I just added it to a steel memo board where they can add on reminders for the morning as well.
I think it will look great framed above the bathroom door, so that may be where it ends up, but for now we’re liking it here!
Print your own HERE.
Now your teens are ready to stay fresh, dry AND know how to use AXE properly. They’ll be more “in the know” than most young guys since 64% of them think body spray and dry spray are the same thing and 1 in 2 guys think that they should apply body spray to their underarms. Knowledge is power everyone 😉
