- Baking Powder
- Some cosmetics
- Canned foods (it's what the can is made of)
- Many cooking utensils, pans, etc.
So, I was doing a little research, and I thought about the homemade deodorant recipe posted here by one of my comerades, but until I have the materials, I just wanted something easy. I came across 2 things: isopropyl alcohol and baking soda. For the isopropyl alcohol, just simply fill a small spray bottle with it, then spritz your pits a couple of times a day. The alcohol kills the bacteria since that's what causes BO anyway, but allows you to sweat, which is one of the ways the body detoxifies itself. For the baking soda, the instructions said to put some in a small tupperware style container, take a large facial powder brush and treat the baking soda just as you would facial powder - dip, tap, brush on delicately. Done. So, this is the one I tried today. It was not hot, so even though I perspired, I was not drenched. However, I did run/walk intervals for about 2 miles today. And you know what - NO STINK! I was impressed.
So, I will try this for a few days and just see if it holds up, and I'll let you know. I may still try the alchol one too, or maybe some combination like a 'spritz, dry, powder' routine. I'll get back to you on that one.
