Have you tried adding some Napisan to the detergent to wash your clothes? The bacteria can survive washing unless it's a hot wash, but Napisan could help? Obviously, don't put your clothes in a hot wash unless you want to shrink/ruin them all!
I can't offer any other tips but it sounds like you have a decent cleansing routine going & it's not working, so I'd speak to the doctor if I were you.
If I was you I would boil wash the towels for good measure.
Personally, I epilate once or twice a week - been doing that for years so almost no hair each time; and scrubby glove with sanex wash. I do find some of the cheapy shower gels don't seem to cut the mustard, and imperial leather and radox are all fragrance no cleaning power, but that is just my opinion.
I often forget deodorant (in my defence I am on mat leave, I never forget when going out but for around the house its a bit hit or miss) and I don't think I smell and DH says I never smell even on no deo days.
DH uses Driclor sometimes - you put it on straight after shower in the night and basically don't sweat for the next 48 hours. He tells me you must only use it straight after a shower, as if you put it on even an hour later and have sweated even a tiny bit it stings like a bugger. The dance when he found this out was amusing!
Weirdly enough I've started to pong less since using one of those 'natural' (=completely ineffective) salt deodorants. I used that really strong Sure cream stuff for a while but got a bit worried about its nuclear nature, so switched to the natural stuff. You do still sweat but it's less pongy.
Could it be you're not getting off the residue from your deodorant and that's trapping the smell. Does it feel kind of dry when you wash, that's how you can tell. I found that worse when using a stick or spray, but a roll on instead for a few days sorts it.
There are metabolic conditions which cause sufferers to smell, even if they are perfectly clean. The best known one is trimethylaminuria, which is controlled by a low protein diet. Do you eat lots of eggs, meat etc..?
