RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
Not at all. I find that when I sweat, the mixture quickly wears off and I have to apply more. I have been using straight powder though, but will start experimenting with adding some water in to get it to stick my pits a little better. No doughy smell though. No smell at all.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I've been using baking soda as deodorant for about two months and it works better than anything I've ever tried. For me the trick is just to use a very small amount and just kind of pat it on there. If I rub it in or use too much it can be irritating, but a small amount patted on works perfectly. Also been using half baking soda and half Xyliwhite to brush my teeth, and that is working great too. Could brush with just baking soda but it's a bit salty/gritty on its own.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
ALL organic deodorants work, the secret....you have to use Apple cider vinegar under your arms first.

I've been using organic deodorants for awhile now and I don't plan on ever going back to the traditional kind

I don't use vinegar, baking soda alone does it for me.

Toothpaste has all kinds of nasty stuff in it including fluoride. Baking soda also just works better.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I previously posted this under the comments section of Roosh's blog post on baking soda, but I'll post it here in case anyone is interested.

If anyone wants a natural solution, that works like really nothing else, and doesn't want to mess around with boxes of baking soda, mixing with cornstarch, etc, etc.. AND wants to apply deodorant only once every few days, then try this out:

Lavilin Deoderant Cream

Its the freaking best.

It works somehow with the microbial population of your armpit, and therefore it kills smell for several days at a time. There are no chemicals in it that I know about, it smells like very mild cream, and you only need to apply an amount in the size of about half of a pea.

I tried it because i have a problem armpit, with my right arm, and the BO would cut through baking soda easily, as well as other standard deodorant after about 3/4 of a day.

No more. This kills it all. One container will last you many, many months. I've had mine since the beginning of the summer and its about 1/3rd gone.

I would avoid Lavilin, its got quite a few toxic ingredients.

Right now, NOTHING beats baking soda and / or apple cider vinegar with a good organic deodorant

I tried taking a small teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with water to treat a hangover/upset stomach the other day...it works!

check this out.

It has a slight grit to it like sand which you will feel as soon as you put it on. And I've had a few times where it caused my skin to dry up, flake off and be raw and then anything I'd put there would sting like an open cut. I'm going to experiment with mixing it together with corn starch. Up till now I was just wiping it under my arms straight from the box.

Yea, you gotta mix it with cornstarch. I carried a box of cornstarch and baking soda to the very hot caribbean countries that I visited recently.
All day in 40 degree celsius weather and my armpits were as fresh as Metros.
Baking soda on its own was causing my armpits to feel raw and even worse when I was applying to my dyck, I was in agony (could barely push it inside a lizard).

So now I mix it with cornstarch and I am as right as rain.

im going to try this. i tried the straight baking soda and it burned like a mother and the skin got all irritated it was hell. switched back to cornstarch only. ill try mixing them. do you do 50/50 split or what

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
Interesting thing is that baking soda burns the hell out of my balls, but not my armpits. If I put too much in my armpits though I notice the skin turns slightly red.

The corn starch is key to dilute the baking soda and prevent the burn.
I use 50/50 mixture and it prevents the burn.

There are two: Essentials and the other one is Ultra Max. The Ultra Max is cheaper so I'll probably start with that one.

Neither those have all kinds of crap, just get the box.

The arm and hammer baking soda? I ordered one two days ago. I hope it won't leave white stains on my shirts as an other one did.

dilute it with corn starch to weaken the effect (and burn) a bit.

I will try mixing in corn starch, haven't yet, but I find if I just use the smallest amount of baking soda and just tap it on without rubbing at all it minimizes irritation.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I just moved to a place that is cold as fuck during winter, so that means layers and layers, which then means profuse sweating and BO in the pits of my shirts. All of my shirts had mad stinkage the past two weeks. My armpits were running faucets. I ran out of my regular POS degree deodorant and I finally sprung for some baking soda.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Roosh. The difference is unreal. I'm almost in disbelief that there is no BO and no sweating anymore. I feel free. The baking soda industry/lobbyists should be paying referral fees to Roosh.

ACV and baking soda combo, someone mentioned that. Is that a worthy try?

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I use this in combination with baking soda for my armpits. Just a capful to moisturise the baking soda. The ACV takes the caustic nature out of the baking soda and my armpits no longer feel raw and chafed.
I worked out yesterday and I never had a shower afterwards nor that night. A lizard invited me out to watch a movie and fcuk and we normally shower together.
This evening she didn't want to wait for the shower.
So that meant a full day with no shower.
Woke up this morning and sniffed my armpits. Didn't smell a thing. ACV plus baking soda = win.

RVF'ers watch out with this do all of baking soda. I've gotten 2 nasty chemical burns on my nuts from 'dusting' shit up to be nice and fresh for the lizards. I'm back to using baby powder on the jewels since I don't want to get burned for a second time.
