I finally got a chance to try one of the DIY deodorant recipes that I posted last week. If you’re a new follower I will post the recipe after giving my review on it.
So far it seems to be working pretty well. The only thing I don’t particularly like about it is that it gets kind of messy. If you kind of smell like I did (I haven’t taken a shower yet today), there will be a slight smell afterward, but that will only last a few minutes. Just kind of move your arms around so that the cornstarch and baking soda gets absorbed into the skin a little bit and it won’t take long for the deodorant to take effect. You know what the best part is though? The fact that you’re only putting two chemicals on your body, and absolutely NONE of that icky aluminum that’s in commercial antiperspirants. 🙂 It remains to be seen, but you might have to apply this stuff a couple of times a day, depending on your activity level. This will make a powder deodorant. Anyway, here is the recipe again, in case you didn’t get to see the earlier post:
1. In a reusable (and resealable) container, combine one part baking soda with six parts cornstarch
2. Close the container and shake well for about a minute to mix the powders.
3. Apply the powder with something like a powder puff, or even a cotton ball would probably work if you don’t have a powder puff.
If you try this, let me know what you think of it! 🙂
