What is the correct verb to pair with „Deodorant“ or „Deo“? By way of comparison, in (American) English, we most often put on deodorant or more rarely apply, but use seems a little awkward to me.
What is the correct verb in German? Benutzen? Anwenden?
Relatedly: do you need to use the definite article when talking about deodorant, or would it be considered a verbal complement (with no article)?
