It Totally Works
When high-school swimming was through, I remember feeling totally elated that I would no longer smell like a bottle of bleach all the time. And when I started swimming again a couple years ago, I greeted that smell - which hangs on the skin for days, no matter what you do in the shower - with dismay. So when I got a bottle of SwimSpray for free at the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim, I was eager to try it, though admittedly skeptical. Here's the deal: It totally works. You just spray it on your skin, and then shower, and then you don't smell like chlorine. Amazing! It's just water and ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and was created by a local guy. What's not to love?
