Occasionally we hear from customers who are concerned there might be something wrong with their bottle of Pit Liquor. 99.99% of the time, the answer is “nothing is wrong!” Our small-batch, handmade process means that our product isn’t as “perfect” as one made in a tube or can in a factory—our all-natural ingredients produce slight variations at times. We’re perfectly imperfect and we're proud of it. But we understand you may have some questions, so here's a dive into our five most common WTF?? questions:

1. Why is there sediment at the bottom of my bottle?

That sediment is a star player in our deodorant's stink-fighting power. A blend of arrowroot, sea salt, and teas, the white-ish powder packs a powerful punch to the bacteria in your pits. To make the most of this, be sure you always shake your bottle before applying Pit Liquor.

2. What are those greenish bubbles in my Whiskey Vanilla products?

People often assume those green bubbles are mold, but fear not! The real vanilla oil fueling that sweet vanilla scent forms into little bubbles inside your bottle. As it takes a bath with our proprietary blend of teas, the oil changes color. So really, greenish bubbles mean a great blend of stink-fighting, vanilla-scented magic. 

3. Why is my bottle darker/lighter than my last bottle?

Our master blenders combine the perfect mix of overproof alcohol, essential oils, and our tea/arrowroot blend to each batch before bottling. Different batches of ingredients can lead to slightly different shades in the finished product. But never fear, the powerful Pit Liquor you love is the same in every bottle. The color has nothing to do with the stench-quenching power.

4. Why does this bottle look different than my last one?

Maybe your label was a little crooked, or the fill-line isn’t quite in the same spot as last time? In a world of mechanized factories, we subconsciously expect every bottle to look exactly the same. At our warehouse, Pit Liquor’s small but mighty team fills each bottle by hand and applies every label before sending it off to you. That means there may be subtle differences in each label or fill-line, but we like to think of this as our own stamp of authenticity. No machines means real jobs, real people, and a kickass natural deodorant made right here in the US of A.

5. What’s that fuzz in my roller bottle?!

You’ve used your roller bottle for a few months, and rolling it on is the best part of your day. But all of a sudden you notice a fuzz ball in the bottom of your bottle. Don’t worry - it’s not mold, it’s simply lint or other stray particles that the roller ball has pulled into your bottle. Even if it looks like a little twister, it doesn’t affect the strength of your Pit Liquor, and won’t harm you. Promise.

Both of my sprayers broke. I have Used about 5 percent of only one of the bottles. I’d like to return them. Just not for me. Will you please send me details?


Pit Liquor Team said:

Hey Mike, our bottles changed shape because of a supply chain issue. We are working to find the perfect bottle for our Pit Liquor products and look forward to debuting it soon.

Mike Duignan said:

Why did you change the shape of the bottle? The older one with the longer neck was much easier to hold and use. Wish you would go back to the previous one.

Hey Jeremy, thanks so much for your feedback! Like Cindy said, sometimes Vodka or Whiskey works better with your body chemistry. You can find out more about that here: https://pitliquor.com/blogs/news/whiskey-and-vodka We also wanted to clarify, Pit Liquor doesn’t sell Whiskey Sandalwood, but we do offer Whiskey Vanilla. Is that what product you’re referring to?

Jeremy, I had a similar issue with Coconut Rum with Lime. Loved it and it worked great for awhile, but eventually was less effective. Then I tried one of the scents with whiskey and it was not effective.

I’ve since been using only the vofka-based scents and a variety of those have worked great for me. I’ll stick to the vodka scents and rotate them. I really love this product

Jeremy Smith said:

I’ve used Pit Liquor since June of 2021. I started with Whiskey Lavender. I then purchased the best-seller bundle (Lavender, Black Pepper, Coconut Rum with Lime) and most recently Whiskey Sandalwood. I am not sure if it’s Whiskey Sandalwood or my body, but Whiskey Sandalwood just didn’t work. My odor by day’s end was atrocious. When using regular deodorant, I always swapped brands scents every other purchase. My body does have tendencies to adapt, but I wasn’t sure if it was just the Sandalwood scent or all of the scents before making another purchase. Have you heard of other people’s body’s adapting to the product? Any insights?

I really loved the product until Whiskey Sandalwood and I hope it’s just the Sandalwood scent.

I used to use Dr. Squatch deodorant but people think it’s a good price it’s not cause with pit liquor it can last you more than a month and believe or not I use 1 or 2 sprays on each armpit and works fine. Love the smell of it. It will take time for me to order more but will surely stick to you guys cause you make my armpits smiling and happy! Lol!
Thank you so much finally found something that really work! Keep it up and many blessings! One love! Peace!
