Florida, you're sweaty!

Posted by Rachel Leigh

(OLD SPICE ) - Once again, Old Spice released the Top-100 Sweatiest Cities List to mark the beginning of summer.

Based on amount of sweat produced per person, Phoenix claimed its spot as the nation's No. 1 perspiration producer for the fifth time, with the average resident losing 26.4 ounces of sweat per hour during a typical summer day. That means its residents collectively produced enough sweat to fill the gas tanks of 14,165 SUVs in just one hour! To earn the top spot, Phoenix's average temperature was 95.1 degrees in June, July and August 2007

And, for the first time, Old Spice is announcing the Biggest Sweat Producers in the US, based on how much sweat could be produced if the entire population were walking around for one hour on a typical summer day.

New York City is the nation's No. 1 Biggest Sweat Producer, with residents collectively producing 1.3 million gallons of sweat per hour.

America's other Biggest Sweat Producers:

2.  Los Angeles with 608,664 gallons of sweat per hour
3.  Chicago with 449,285 gallons
4.  Houston with 387,790 gallons
5.  Norfolk, VA with 376,087 gallons
6.  Phoenix with 311,629 gallons
7.  Philadelphia with 238,869 gallons
8.  San Antonio with 229,606 gallons
9.  Dallas with 222,420 gallons
10. San Diego with 184,929 gallons.

HOW TO BEAT THE SUMMER HEAT

â—Š  Water - Drink plenty of fluids, at least eight to 10 glasses of water per day.

â—Š  Choose Clothes Wisely - Wear lightweight, light-colored items that breathe easily.

â—Š  Replace Salt and Minerals - Sweating removes the body's salt and minerals.  If participating in a strenuous activity where you anticipate heavy perspiration, drink fruit juices and sports beverages to replace lost minerals.

â—Š  Reduce Sweat Output and Stay Odor Free - Use an anti-perspirant/ deodorant daily that provides all-day clinical strength odor and wetness protection.
