How To Nicely Tell Someone That They Smell Bad

b21730Most of the time, people will not notice their smell. They’ll assume that if no one is saying anything to them, they must not smell bad. In fact, 99% of the time, people will smell just fine. Yet that awkward other 1% of the time, a person’s smell can be extremely pronounced, uncomfortable and nauseating.

Sometimes it’s really not their fault: you can’t always smell your own brand of sweat. Other times, it might not be the person themself, but their clothes, that stink. Failing to wash clothes daily (or letting them sit in our sweat) can cause smelly bacteria to grow, and it’s often not ‘activated’ until we start to sweat again (hence why it smells fine out of the wash, but starts to stink when we get sweaty). Other times, people like to shower the night before, wake up, go to work, then get their sweat on, but by the time dinner rolls around, it may have been about a day since their last shower, and that exacerbate someone’s smells more than usual.

It can be REALLY uncomfortable to tell someone they smell out of the blue and unfortunately most people will suffer in silence, afraid to offend the smelly offender.   But what if there was a way to tell someone that they smell, without being the one to personally tell them? Well now you can thanks to The Incognito Help Line.

If you’re not familiar with the service, The Incognito Help Line, is an anonymous message delivery service that will personally call and tell your trainer they need to pay closer attention to their hygiene. Simply provide the recipient’s contact information and The Incognito Help Line will deliver your message with the kindness and care that everyone deserves.

Concerned that they might not know how to improve their scent, The Incognito Help Line can also offer several suggestions or advice. They can explain that sometimes clothing can be saved with baking soda, intense detergents and hot water, but sometimes they cannot. They will suggest that your trainer give their clothes a sniff post workout and if they REALLY stink, it may be time to ditch them (sports bras, undies, socks and all). They will encourage them to consider a quickie shower pre-work, switching to morning showers or re-applying deodorant a few times during the day.

At the end of the day, it’s one thing for someone to get a random phone call or note when they can’t validate where it came from or if it’s meant to be taken seriously or a stupid joke by one of their gym buddies. But when someone gets a personal phone call or postcard from The Incognito Help Line, they’ll know the message is serious and shouldn’t be taken as a joke, and it’s that personal touch that makes all the difference.

As the number one professional anonymous messaging service, The Incognito Help Line knows that sometimes its easier to let someone say things for you, which is why The Incognito Help Line was created- for people to start saying the things they need to say. So stop suffering in silence and let The Incognito Help Line tell them they smell, so you don’t have to tell them yourself!
