My husband and I have had the same argument for the past 10 years of marriage. Showers. He doesn’t see the point of taking them everyday. My nose, and my bedsheets, disagree. Why is is so difficult for some men (and a few boys) to just bathe? It’s like they have this obsession with staying as stinky as possible. Well, I’m over it!

This is what I propositions to my husband: let’s change up your signature move. Love away from the working outside all day and not bathing thing. Thanks to Irish Spring’s New Signature For Men line, I have an arsenal. Let’s do this!

I found the new Irish Spring Signature For Men items in the personal care aisle of my local Walmart. Actually, they had an end cap featuring lots of Irish Spring products, including the new line. Was it because of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday? Maybe. I personally would like to think it’s because they knew I needed to get my pigpen husband in the shower, and I needed quite a few options to convince him.

I was able to grab the Irish Spring Signature hydrating and 3-in-1 body wash, as well as the 3-pack of hydrating and exfoliating scrub bar soap. They just want me to win, and I appreciate the support. Irish Spring gets it!

Well, we had a sit-down and hashed out this challenge. He had his valid points, and I had mine. We went tit-for-tat, and blow by blow. Want to know how it turned out? Check out the video below.

      Bougie Buck lol! The new line is actually pretty good. The husband had his picky preferences, but loves this new line. The bar soaps alone has changed his mind!

    Omg too funny. I argue the same over here! Lol

      It seems like husbands either love the stink or are meticulous about showering daily or even twice daily. There’s no in-between.

      Exactly! I got him with the good stuff lol.

    My hubby loves some Irish Spring and he’s even gotten my 6 year old addicted to the smell! Haha, that stuff smells sooo good, but I haven’t seen this new line, so I may just pick it up for them. Nothing beats that clean man smell, and you guys are just too cute!! More videos!!

    Luckily I don’t have to deal with man stank, but I hear you on getting in the bed all smelly. Our bed is a no sweat/odor zone especially during the summer. No, just, no. I want to try those man bars. Hubby is always complaining about having to smell like coconuts and whatnot, lol. Excellent video!

    No. I could not be with a stinky man. Definitely a deal breaker! If my husband had hygiene issues we would not be married.

      Which is why I make mine shower, Mary. Ha! Our big issue was not showering everyday, and doing it every other day. Sometimes that “other” day is quite a stinky one hehe.

    Your video LITERALLY had me laughing out loud. I have three boys at home. One of them is a stinky teenager, but he’s getting it. He’s totally coming around to it. The little one got his daddy’s obsession for smelling good and the kid LOVES a shower. I can’t even try to put him to bed without splashing him down. My husband is in the restaurant industry and he reeks when he gets home, but he’s pretty serious about his showers. He also loves to douse himself in cologne, whereas I love his natural smell as long as he uses a good soap like Irish Spring. #client

      Yes Summer! See, I have a boy just like your little one. He feels out of sorts if he doesn’t get a daily shower. His Dad, well, you saw the video lol! I do love when he’s fresh out of the shower, after using a a great soap. So far, the Irish Spring Signature for Men hydrating body wash is our favorite.
