I basically lie so their feelings won't be hurt and I say "I think you have been around some people that have body odor and the smell has gotten into your hair and in your clothes. Maybe they have been smoking or didn't wash their clothes. I just wanted you to be aware so no one will say anything to you that may hurt your feelings since it's not your fault".

I have. I just talked to them away from everyone else and told them that the climate in Florida was  more humid than were they moved from so it made people bit sweatier and they may need to take an extra shower each day to compensate.

One time my friend told me that someone at his job had complained about his BO so I saw that as an opportunity to tell him the truth: Sometimes you're a bit "pungent", maybe try a stronger deodorant? Lol
