Your Name Stinks

Somebody must have had this thought already, but I just had it now, so…

Why is deodorant called deodorant and not reodorant? Decluttering makes sense. It turns a space from messy to clean. De-worming makes sense. It removes parasites from people and animals. Deforestation makes sense. It turns a forest into not a forest. But deodorant? It doesn’t make your armpits not smell. It just makes them smell less like armpits and more like whatever the smell of deodorant is supposed to be.

Please, someone get on this. A change is needed.
