Has anyone compared this to a box of baking soda? Do they work the same?

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I have dark armpit hair.

After a month or so of use I noticed that the baking soda bleached the hair (went from black to a medium brown color). Now I know why people use it to whiten their teeth.

Anyone else notice this? You can only really tell if you look up close. Anyway to prevent this?

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I'm so late to this thread but must say, I started using it and haven't looked back. It's awesome.

I typically put two fingers that are slightly damp into a bag of baking soda I keep in the bathroom, then spread around my armpits. Doesn't matter how much I sweat, I don't smell anything.

Anyone use Gold Bond powder?

Do any of you guys use vinegar to clean and with your laundry? I've pretty much replaced most household cleaners and bleach with it. I still keep a little bleach around in case, but vinegar and baking soda are about all you need, I think. And so freaking cheap.

I've tried both and to be honest, the deodorant stick is too "wet" for my liking and I feel like I have wet armpits after I put it on. I have had that problem with most stick deodorants. I don't have that problem with straight baking soda. My two cents.

Tell us more about using vinegar to wash clothes. Do you use it with whites, darks, both?

I also have been mixing baking soda with my toothpaste and my teeth have never been whiter. Baking soda has helped my game!

Do you have any cavities?
If yes have they reduced in size or gone away completely?

I read somewhere on the internet if you mix hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and make it as a paste, that it can get rid of cavities.

You can use a cup of distilled white vinegar in your laundry to disinfect your underwear, or anything else that needs disinfecting. It doesn't whiten things, but does disinfect well. It's great to use as a household cleaner as well. The smell of vinegar takes a little getting used to, but it's harmless, unlike bleach vapor.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
Baking powder as deodorant is the single most useful tip I've picked up from Roosh.

No matter the deodorant I put on, my armpit stink could not be masked for long. I even got called on it by a few people.

Now I keep a box of baking soda (costs 99c) in my medicine cabinet. I use it as deodorant and toothpaste.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
Is there a trick to applying the baking soda to the armpit area so that it does not cause red itchiness? It won't bother me much during the day, but when I'm trying to sleep it starts itching.

I'd recommend taking a shower before bed and washing it off. I do that, never had any problems that way.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
At the risk of sounding like a retard, you're supposed to rub the baking soda in armpits while still slightly wet and then not wash it off?

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
Just finished a trip to Asia where it is balls hot and I'm happy to report zero pit smell thanks to baking soda. 100% love using baking soda. I do recommend showering at night and not having it on while you sleep, gotta give the pits a rest.

Add me to the list of converts. I've been using Arm n Hammer stick deoderant and by the afternoon I can already smell myself. Today I applied it, wet my fingers in water, and smeared some baking soda on and I've gone the entire day odor-free. Amazing.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
So far, the only negative for me with baking soda is if I sweat heavily and wear a dark shirt. Even with an undershirt, I sometimes get white patches on the shirt in the armpits.

Still, all in all, I would rather have a little white residue there then smell rank. It's a very minor negative.

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I'm a sweaty guy and have been using this for years. I always does a good job eliminating odor. It works really well at first but after using it for a month or two it looses its smoothness and begins to scratch my armpits. I'm definitely going to try apple cider vinegar and baking soda

If you have those tough underarm yellow stains in your shirts, try mixing hydrogen peroxide with baking soda and working it in. I did it with mine and it took those stains right out, amazing! Not only does that mix take those yellow stains out, but whitens your teeth as well.

For application i've been using one of those shaving cream brushes for a light dusting. Works great and its not on thick enough to irritate my skin.

I think I've said it somewhere in this thread, but I mix the Baking Soda with Corn Starch in a 2-to-1 ratio (always tweaking). The Corn Starch deals with the perspiration and dilutes the power of the baking soda so that it doesn't irritate the pits after a few uses. Baking Soda for the stink, and Corn Starch for the sweat. Winning combo.
