They really smell. I walked into the kitchen today to make some food, and from the moment I opened the door I was hit with this disgusting stench. I don't even know what it is, it's that bad. It's definitely coming from them though. Every time I walk past their room, it stinks. Even when the door is shut, it absolutely reeks! They walked past me today and, oh my god, it was rancid. The thing is though, I can't really tell someone they smell. Well, I could. But it wouldn't go down well. What can I do do cancel out the smell/ maybe hint they need to wash themselves/clothes more often. Their hair is always greasy too. Honestly, it's so rank. Ugh.

Just be honest and tell them. I have no sense of smell so sometimes I don't realise how long I've worn something.

Buy some air freshener and douse the place with it. Also make sure you spray them to the point they start coughing. I'm sure they'll get the message.

wait outside their room with 2 other flatmates

when the smelly flatmate comes out, get your 2 flatmates to grab him whilst you hold him down.

Get out a can of lynx and douse the kid till the can is literally empty

Stop being a passive aggressive little t0sspot b1ch and just say "hey mate, you stink, showers exist for a reason". Problem solved. Grow a pair

Oh man. There's nothing you can do about it. Like people that play loud music, you can say the noise is too much but this is personal in this persons case. It's a no go zone lol.

I'd suggest bleach/hydrochloric acid, deodorant doesn't seem nearly as strong enough.

A guy I lived with was the same. Absolutely rancid, even when he'd use the bathroom to pee it'd stink the place out. He was using a lot of illicit drugs and herbs and such. Plus rarely washed, smoked, had hair down to his chest and it was at the point of us wondering, is he ill?

Sadly some people go through their whole lives being disgusting, filthy and dirty even when they're in their forties and fifties. They simply don't care about hygeine in the same way most other people do.

It's Christmas soon, use this opportunity to buy them the full body spray and bath box set! I can sympathise, one of my housemates smells quite bad whenever they're in an enclosed space! You could always hint to them that it smells quite bad, not specifically blaming them.

When I've walked into the kitchen and it's smelt of BO, I've said "Damn it smells bad in here, I'm gonna open a window." It doesn't pin it specifically on one person but it certainly gets the point across.

Terrible advice, nobody wants to be breathing in chemicals like that. Find another approach but this is unhealthy.

And possibly give him an asthma attack? Excellent.
