Photo Answer #52

It's about time I gave you the answer to this photo question. But before I do, let's enjoy the creative answers people came up with.
 How about spray starch? 
Maybe to freshen your shirt when you can't wash it. Sounds revolting, but if you're travelling...... 
Smelly teenagers who want to disguise their hygiene deficiencies... A long way to say Febreeze.
Ken gets the "prize" for the most creative:
This is a modern version of something used by ninjas throughout history. You will remember that Shintaro the Samurai's offsider was an Ega ninja called Tombei the mist. When he wanted to disappear he would spray his shirt with the misting solution. When it wore off he would be seen upside down in the corner of the roof space clinging like a spider.
This was long before CGI special effects, so all of the action was REAL by REAL ninjas. Ask any teenage Australia boy from the 1960s.

Here's the real answer: http://blogs.timeout.jp/en/2013/07/10/cool-yourself-down-japanese-style/:
Spray onto your clothes for an instant cooling effect, and a lingering smell of mouthwash. 
As the colleague who sent me this link said, don't know about the mouthwash, though!
