Tired of spending money on store-bought deodorants/antiperspirants, only to find that they let you down and stain your clothes? Then, try this simple – and unbelievably cheap – alternative:
What You Need:
- Wash cloth
- Baking soda
What to Do:
Sprinkle baking soda – a little will do – onto a damp wash cloth, and apply it to your underarms. It'll keep you fresh throughout the day!
Why This Works:
Baking soda absorbs perspiration and neutralizes odors.
Benefits of Using Baking Soda Deodorant:
- no harsh chemicals (like the aluminum found in most commerical antiperspirants)
- neutralizes odors, rather than covering them up
1. If a dry application is preferable, use a duster or brush to apply.
2. For a scented deodorant, mix together equal parts baking soda and corn starch (for shelf stability); and add a few drops of essential oil or a handful of dried flowers (lavender is nice). Then, store in an airtight container.
