Since I cannot reply to posts by NTPs, but I still want to provide advice, I'll start a new post.

I find it useful to take a long shower before jumping in the pool. I mean shampoo and soap and all. I don't know the science behind it, but it seems to work. My guess is that the pores get saturated with water so your skin doesn't absorb (or is it adsorb, I can't remember my chemistry) the high chlorine water.

Holly cow Batman ... a counterfeit thread. This is like Saigon 1975 all over again.

Since this is the only thread that I can respond to ... I am going to respond to it again.

Wow you created a counterfeit thread to provide advice. That is going above and beyond in my book! Thanks for the advice. I'm going to try everything.

Why would you want to get the chlorine smell out??? It smells like Victory!

Kev7....I couldn't agree more. When a work colleague asks who smells like a swimming pool you can relate how you were up at 5am and swam a couple of miles before you turned up for work!

so, I'd encourage you all to give a new product, called SwimSpray a try! Full disclosure :) --the founder is a friend of mine, but he's also a nationally ranked NCAA swimmer, triathlete, and holds a PhD in chemistry. he's put his degree to good use here--solving a problem that's near & dear to him!

I've not yet had a chance to try it myself (must get in the pool!), but I've heard nothing but positive things from the swimmers who have used it. and, these guys have tried just about everything previously--spending crazy hours in the pool!

it's locally operated & you can order it here:
