    YES! Made me laugh pretty hard. To bad we can't just lock the walk in from the inside and let the boys out for a few.

    who says we can't, being the boss has its privileges.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Thankfully, I haven't had to deal with this problem in a while, but when it was at its worst, I used liquid skin on the affected areas. Just had to remember to shave the affected area first, or removing it at the end of the day was a new kind of pain.

    I've. Had some success using Gillette anti-perspirant gel.

    Yeah, Chamois Butter, Bag Balm, etc would probably work well.

    Since you cycle, did you ever shave your legs? One summer when I was riding a lot and had a couple bouts of road rash (that is scabbing from cuts sustained from crashes, not the type of stuff we are talking about in this thread) I shaved mine and holy crap did my legs feel a lot cooler when I did. You could really feel the improved air flow going up the pants too.

    It's probably not warm enough over here for a lot of what has been mentioned in this thread but I am always interested in learning things from everyone here. Any other tips for when it is warm? I wear one of those sweatband things like the tennis players on my wrist and I find it very useful when it is warm, especially if I am working at a fryer for 11 hours

    Or something similar I can't remember if this is the exact one or if they changed it but it's similar enough that I would buy this one as well.

    I could talk jackets too or even how to modify your jackets as well if you wish. Really this stuff is essential in the kitchen. When I mention this to people at work they're like $17 for one pair of underwear?" Yes. I've even paid up to almost $30 at times. It's THAT worth it. Haven't needed corn starch since!
    Damn and Rick isn't even in all this humidity. I might have to check into this. I'm pretty good now a days, but sometimes gotta get down in the trenches and this might be of interest. Thanks for sharing Rick. It's cool, I get looked at funny when I mention petite cures, they just don't know. Knowledge and Wisdom is priceless.

    Kind regards

    Yeah but I worked in Gainesville FL for a good 5 years at least. They don't call G'ville the swamp for nothing!

    I worked with a dude that swore by wearing underwear, then basketball shorts, then the chef pants. He said it prevented the chaffing, tried it once and it worked, but I've never had a huge problem.
