I remember being at the gym about 15 years ago and a woman in her early 20s was confidently strolling around in the buff. It was the first (and maybe only?) time I'd ever seen a woman with a missing carpet. I was kind of shocked and tried not to stare! Then I was even more surprised when she got a stick of deodorant out of her bag and applied it to her armpits...and then down below. I'd never heard of that and had certainly never seen it. Is this common as well for gals that go bare?
The funny thing was that for years I assumed she was a stripper or something exotic/risque. Now reading this thread, I think maybe she was just on the cutting edge! How long has this trend been around? I've only been aware of it (hardwoods) in the past 3 years or so.
I don't know how long the hardwood trend has been going on (instinctively, I would guess probably 3,000 years or so ), but the first time I was ever aware of that was when I was 19, which was a fair number of years ago. One of the secretaries I worked with said she kept things hairless. I had never heard of it, but that was also the office where I learned that the answer to my floor-maintenance issues was found in the professional wax. I was not tempted to attempt a hardwood-wax, but that was where I learned to tame the Neanderthal beast that is my tea-room carpeting.
And...she rubbed the deodorant down in the TEA ROOM?! Just goes to show you that strange ideas abound in tea-room maintenance. If I had a notion of doing that, at least I would have separate sticks. But I don't have any notion of doing that. I'm not a big fan of introducing chemicals in that area.
