I’ve been a firefighter for over 30 years. It’s a repetitive job and it’s wet. Combine the two and you’ll get chaffing and there’s no time for pain when you’re on the job. Most of the guys use anti-friction powders, wicking liners, and more to try to keep them comfortable. I think we’re all always on the search for the next thing that will provide some relief.
My Gold Bond No Mess Powder Spray Experience
I recently got two cans of new Gold Bond No Mess Powder Spray to review and I found the application quick and easy, though it’s a bit shocking when you first spray it – it’s cold! But it does dry fast, provides lots of lubrication with no residual wetness, and it goes through body hair much more easily than powder. Those are some huge benefits, but it also adds the extra bonus of keeping me dry and odor free.
In addition to being a structural fire fighter I’m also a wildland firefighter and that brings even more ways to find relief from Gold Bond No Mess Powder Spray. Shoveling and digging for 10-12 hours a day means a lot of pulling of fabric across the back of my arms, my neck, and the waistband of my pants. When the collar of my shirts starts to chafe, I need instant relief and prevention. Same for the back waistband of my pants. I’ll be adding a can of Gold Bond No Mess Powder Spray to my go bag so I have it for the next wildfire.
While there are two scents available, Classic and Fresh, neither of them are perfect for me. I found the Fresh scent a little too feminine for my taste with its botanicals, almost perfumed scent; but Classic’s medicated formula wasn’t a favorite either. The medicated includes menthol which provides “cooling” though I’d call it burning, for some time after application – many people love this feeling – I find it annoying.
My wife has suggested I take Medicated to the fire station for the guys to try out. Since they’re used to messy powders, they might appreciate the super fast application of the spray. While most of the guys would use it when the bell rings, it can also be used after exercise or a shower because it also provides deodorant protection beyond the lubrication.
I’ll be keeping the Fresh scent because of the two it’s more my style and I”m sure I can get used to it. I’m going to be use the benefits of Gold Bond No Mess Powder Spray for other times when I work up a sweat – like while hiking, doing home maintenance, playing sports, running, working in the yard, and more.
