Anti-Monkey Butt Powder and Other Cool Products to Beat the Heat

Extreme temperatures call for extreme measures and whether you attempt to ward off the sizzling summer heat that's travelled across the nation, or are fighting in a desert climate such as Afghanistan, sweat that builds up with no relief can be irritating. And, what’s worse is not having a solution to the problem.

When the skin sweats in the hidden places of our bodies: under the breasts, between the thighs, in the butt crack, it builds up moisture and creates friction. The result is skin breakdown-first pink, and if left unattended, red. Before you know it you end up with a full blown ‘diaper rash’, without the diaper of course.


Help our Soldiers-Buy A.M.B. powder before 9/30/11

Got Monkey Butt?

So, what’s a person to do? Use Anti-Monkey Butt. I heard of this product on a morning talk show and was so intrigued by its name that I had to check it out. Anti-Monkey Butt has a cool website: www.antimonkeybutt.com with testimonials, Q & A’s and interesting videos.

When I heard its catchy name I couldn’t help but laugh and wondered what the heck it was. What I later found out is that the makers of the powder are a couple of guys who experienced this dilemma from many hours on their bikes. They had unsuccessfully tried other products to get rid of their red, chafed skin. Their recourse was to discover, through trial and error, what worked to keep the irritation away.

For anyone familiar with the effects of a baby’s wet bottom and diaper rash they are also aware of how protective the talc is on wet skin. The calamine lotion is a standby for summer against all sorts of maladies, like bug bites. It soothes and cools the irritated area. That is why this combination was such a winning product.

What I discovered on their website is even more appealing. The company has agreed to donate $1 to the Veteran Outdoors Program for every bottle that is purchased between May 2 and September 30, 2011, AND they will also send a bottle to a soldier for free. That means we have just two months left to support their generosity. By the way, Anti-Monkey Butt powder can now be found at Walgreen’s Drugstores here in the United States so there is no excuse.

Help American troops combat ‘monkey butt’ while offering your own skin protection-buy a bottle of Anti-Monkey Butt! You’ll be glad you did.

Cool Undies by Jockey

Jockey has made claim that by wearing their brand of ‘Stay Cool’ clothing there will be a 3 degree difference due to the thermocules that are implanted into the clothing. When I found a video that offered to explain it more completely it sounded very scientific and researched. Advertising being what it is, this ‘proof of evidence’ approach may be misleading. However, I believe there is credence to the ‘Stay Cool’ brand.

Certain fabrics certainly hold less heat than others, such as linen, silk, or cotton. And, other clothing manufacturers, like Columbia, have been creating ‘cool wear’ for years. So, I would wear the Jockey ‘Stay Cool’ underwear myself on those scorching days. Heck, 3 degrees cooler can make all the difference in the world. See what you think by checking out the video.


Columbia covers it all

Columbia Sportswear has been in existence for over 70 years, first as a hat store, and later incorporating additional pieces of clothing. Now, it is an international company and their customers include both genders and all ages.

No matter what your sport, or what season, Columbia has you covered-literally. From shoes to jackets and hats, to shirts and shorts, Columbia uses a technology that enhances the construction of the fabric creating a product that adapts to the environmental elements of heat and water.

With their ‘Omni-Freeze’ material, sports enthusiasts can stay cooler longer and enjoy the outdoor activity without the inconvenience of feeling wet from sweat. There is also Omni-Dry which protects one from moisture. Check out their website to read all of the exciting things they are involved in: www.columbia.com


Loose and Layered

Here are two tips about wearing summer clothing: loose and layered. First, no tight clothes that squeeze the skin-allow a flowing feel to your wardrobe. Remove the waist belt that confines. Instead, let a long necklace hang loosely from your neck to add to the sense of flow.

Second, a woman can maintain a chic, but cool presentation in the office by layering a sheer blouse over a sleeveless or spaghetti strap top. Stay barelegged under long skirts or pants. Or, try the reverse-hike up a long skirt to the side allowing one leg freedom and a path for the breeze to circulate around your legs.

Wearing light colored clothing repels the heat and choose your material carefully. Seersucker is great in the summer, as is light weight cotton and linen. Also, a bra liner can help to absorb moisture from perspiration keeping it off your clothing and away from your skin.


Cool those dogs!

Feet swell in the heat. To help soothe and keep those dogs cool place foot inserts into your shoes. Summer soles are one brand that does this job effectively, but there are others on the market as well, such as the Dr. Scholl’s massaging gel inserts. Silver Linings are another brand that will help to cool your feet during the hot summer days.

Massage those babies with a cool lotion of peppermint, (refreshing), or lavender. Lavender Hill sells many massage products such as oils and lotions. www.lavenderhillcc.com Or, go to your local drugstore for products that have cucumber, lavender, or mint to relax and freshen your skin.

Remember: fashion and health don't have to be compromised during a heat wave. While temperatures sizzle you will keep your cool while looking hot!

That anti-monkey butt commercial is HILARIOUS!! And this Hub reminds me of a brand of work shirts for salarymen in Japan that I came across some years back... called Icey Touch or something. I love these zany (and sometimes quite practical) products! Fun Hub!

I had never heard of this product. I have to say that I wouldn't likely buy it even if I were the type of person to suntan-I'm not, I am afraid of skin cancer, and won't spend more than 20 minutes outside at the hottest time of the day and never in a bathing suit. The reason why I still wouldn't buy it is because of its name-a bit too much advertising in the store. I am one of those types of persons who can decide not to buy something based on its name or commercials, regardless of whether or not the product is useful. Food commercials that are messy and have food all over the face is one sure way of making sure I never eat that food.

Carlness-LOL you made me laugh this morning. Thanks! I hope you are able to access the product now and have them ship it to you from the internet if you cannot find it there. Good luck with that! :)

Hi Cara and Danette-yes, Cara-you and I were apparntly in sinc with that tv show. Danette-I'm glad you got such a kick out of it. It made me laugh too. I had to add it after I saw it. hee hee.

Oh Nell, LOL I'm glad you enjoyed it and had a good laugh. It always feels great after a laugh like that doesn't it. Endorphines or whatever...haha. Thanks for the follow.

Thank you, Phil P for the comments and vote up. LOL I'm glad you found it funny...I couldn't stop laughing.

I agree, Simone-it was hilarious. I had to add it here. Thanks for reading. I wanted to find a unique hub to write about keeping cool--I never expected it to be this, but (no pun intended) when you see an opportunity to pass info on you have to jump on it!

Mrs. M-glad you got a laugh today. Thanks.

Hi AliciaC-Thanks for reading and commenting. It's always nice to entertain once in awhile, LOL

Denise Handlon 5 years ago from North Carolina Author

Hi Flora-thanks for your comments and sharing your thoughts. I had to chuckle about the image of food all over the face.

As for the suntanning-the product is NOT a suntan product. It is for those people who have to work outdoors and are sweating in those areas that are hard to reach-or too embarrassing to reach, such as between the legs. Just like a baby's diaper rash gets to chafing the skin. So, it acts as a soother and protector. But, I can sure appreciate the wisdom of wanting privacy. If you did need to buy some, Flora, you could always say you were buying it for your friend, or your brother, LOL

Hi Annie-thanks for reading and the vote up. :)

What a great way to give back to the soldiers fighting over seas! And should I experience that red irritating skin discomfort you speak of, the "Monkey Butt Powder" product would now be my first choice. Loved your funny approach and good will for those serving in the miiitary!

Nice job here DH!

I never heard the term monkey butt but it made for a great article. While it is a problem at least for some people the humor of the situation but this article fun to read. I think the underwear would be great and the powder for anyone who works outside. Rated up and Funny.

Voted up and funny (I wish there was a hilarious button!) Also useful for those who experience the awful condition of monkey butt on a hot day. Swamp-*ss is pretty awful, too. Hehe...great job!


Denise Handlon profile image

Denise Handlon 5 years ago from North Carolina Author

Thanks K9 It was a fun hub to write.

Hi Pam-I never heard the term before, myself...however, it sure is appropriate when one thinks of the conditions. LOL Thanks for the rate up etc.

Hi Kitty-OMG-I have to agree-sometimes I wish there was a 'hilarious' button as well. Maybe the HP team will add one-they did add the 'interesting' button recently. I wonder if swam.ss is related to Monkey butt, LOL Thanks for reading and enjoying it.

This was such a Fun, yet Informative Hub Denise. I will certainly pass it on to my sister's friend who rides a Harley. Monkey Butt and a good Laugh would probably take the pain away! Also Loved the Video.

Have heard "through the grapevine" how well Anti-Monkey Butt products are--and it's terrific that the company will be sending one can of product to service people for each can purchased here in the states. Let's make sure monkey butt is one issue our dedicated troops won't have to encounter.


Denise Handlon profile image

Denise Handlon 5 years ago from North Carolina Author

LOL that is right, LL Let's send as many anti monkey butt in the can to the troops! My grandkids loved watching the monkey video although the older ones got it better than the younger ones who kept calling the monkey Curious George! LOL
