Why there is always around a horrible smell of sweat in Poland

I hate the smell of sweat that I find in Poland. Today while passing in front of what they call around here Hala (kind of market) there was a bunch of olde people and some younger selling stuff in the street. When I passed the smell of sweat and not having a shower for ages, was horrible. On the way, I passed ther again but then i closed my nose! I heard that a horrible experience in Warsaw is to take a packed tram in the morning!!!

Are you really asking why some people don't wash? Does this topic really interest you?

...try visiting a hacidic villiage in the US...or anywhere.

I like to understand if there is any historical reason not to take a shower everyday.. I have a polish friend and she complains about the same!

Maybe it's older people didn't have bathrooms? Even my polish housekeeper smell bad and we have 3 bathroom!!!

Yes, I'm sure they're on the streets with their laptops reading...

I just don't see it as a strange thing for any city that I've been. Common everywhere and of course I don't like it either, but I know some don't bathe.

Zgubiony, you may not liked but is the truth!!! I have in many cities and in many countries (I am talking only in Europe) and I never seen nothing like here!!

TBH, I could care less. I'd like to see the replies though. Good luck on your quest to extinguish body odor.

In another topic, you say you're living in a poor area. Perhaps this can explain your odor dilemma?

You get stinkers all over the world, you should really catch my bus on the way home, then you'd know what a bad smell was!

In all honesty I have been to Poland 3 times and never noticed people smelling badly, I visited in the height of summer and still nothing - in fact I would say even the beggars of Poland smell like beautiful roses in comparison to the Africans and Asians that are on my bus of an evening!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe Polish deodorizers aren't strong enough?

I had this friend from Poland who smelled really bad, I told him that he smells and he says he sprays some Polish deodorant.
I said well it still smells, but he didn't believe me. So when he got a job working with a lot of older people in a hot environment, they started to complain to the supervisor that he stinks. So the supervisor called me, because the guy didn't speak any english, and then he understood that I was right, that he smells, so we went to the store and bought a bunch of deodorizers.

And everybody was happy. The end.

There's one smell I cannot stand. I get irritated when I smell it, be it at work, shops, pub etc. That smell is B.O. I find that really disgusting. It could either be that you haven't washed or it could be that you haven't put deoderant on. SORT IT! o.o

I've walked past a woman once in Morrisons. Has anyone ever smelt fish? The worse thing about it is that this was in the fruit and veg area. What I was actually smelling is a woman that must have had sex and not washed her bits for a few days since. Heaving.

How about Bad breath???
If you tell people they smell, they get offended, but if you don't, they offend others. Just can't win!

ShellyS, we kinda get the idea. You definitely do not like dark skinned guys and you are BIG time into polish blokes ;-)

Nothing to do with that. All deodorants are more or less the same these days: they reduce the body odor and/or reduce sweat produced by parts of the body but they wont last long and are useless on a skin that hasnt been washed.

Its just that some people do not take a daily shower for whatever reason. Simple as that.

Moving story. I cried.

How different can Polish deodorants be? We have thousands of deodorants over here but ya still get sweaty, stinky people all over the place. I don't think any nation is without it's hygienically challenged individuals. Worse are the towns that smell, primarily and more often than not, of human excrement. Even in England we have them! Especially when it rains hard and the drains back up.

Like most people I'm not keen on smelly people, the smellies I encounter just happen to be dark skinned, I didn't actually say anything about Polish men ;-)

Cause a lot of people hate the "mess" of taking a shower: They have to undress, get under the shower, get wet, rub their skin, dry their skin, dress up again..

Isn't this one of those little habbits we all get used to from a very young age and grow to enjoy that lovely fresh feeling??? or is that just me?

I expect poor hygiene from my patients (and some of them are REAL f*ckin' stinky) but the average person really has no excuse. There's a fella on my bus route every morning after work who's stench is just overwhelming! And he has really long dirty fingernails too!! My first thought is that he's homeless... but then where is he going every morning? It's one of the bus route misteries I occupy my brain with to stay awake long enough to reach my bed.

Well when I was a student in London, the first family that I stayed with happened to be English and they all had a problem with body odor and showers. They took showers every 3 days and they expected me to do the same. I can still see their horrified looks when they got their water bill a month after I moved in :-)

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Apparently. I'm a bit OCD with my personal hygiene but I sure as sh*t ain't no deity!
