RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I found this interesting: http://www.scientificamerican.com/articl...protection

For most, putting on deodorant is a necessary ritual on par with brushing teeth or washing hands. But for people who produce no armpit stench, it is totally unnecessary.

Despite that, nearly three-quarters of those people still use deodorant daily, a new study finds.

The findings, published January 17 in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, show just how much a person's daily life is dictated by what's considered normal.

"They're spending their money, exposing their skin to what may in a few instances not be good for their skin. It sort of suggests to me that there are a lot of conformists around," said study co-author Ian Day, a genetic epidemiologist at the University of Bristol. [10 Odd Facts About the Female Body]

Smelly genes

Several years ago ago, scientists discovered that a gene called ABCC11 determined whether people produced wet or dry earwax. Interestingly, people who produce the "dry" version of earwax also lack a chemical in their armpits that bacteria feed on to cause underarm odor.

"This key gene is basically the single determinant of whether you do produce underarm odor or not," Day said.

While only 2 percent of Europeans lack the genes for smelly armpits, most East Asians and almost all Koreans lack this gene, Day told LiveScience.

No one knows exactly why gene prevalence varies so much between populations, but its absence in East Asia suggests that being stinky was evolutionarily selected against there over the last several thousand years, he said.

I think it was Roosh who recommended Lavilin in some post so I ordered a can from iHerb. I've been using it for less than a week and it's pretty amazing, went for a jog today and my armpits didn't smell at all an hour after without shower.

Newly converted after becoming sick of white t-shirts/shirts getting those yellow aluminium + sweat stains from antiperspirants.

It works.

It's amazing, no smell whatsoever after one day, then didn't shower this morning as had a lazy Sunday and only now (after a hungover sweaty day!) can I detect any stench!

So, on a day to day basis, it works perfectly. Thanks, O.P and Roosh!

Found another use for Baking Soda, didn't find any other posts on it:

It gets cum out of hair. If you're a hairy dude too, you know how much of a pain this can be.

I came on my ex gf's chest the other night and got some in my pubes and chest hair (I'm Roosh-hairy, albeit red).

Baking soda knocked it right out. I don't even use soap or shampoo any more.

BS for hair, acne/backne, armpits, crotch, ass crack.

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?

Yea man same thing happened to me. I have dark skin so the contrast is not to bad and not easily noticeable.

Update:

My armpit hair is officially toast. It's all light brown now, all completely bleached. I maybe put to much BS on that's for sure as today I got a slight chemical burn from it. I would say that's it would be wise to cut this stuff with some talc/cornstarch to tame down its strength if you have sensitive skin.

Does anyone know why baking soda works as a deodorant?

Is it:
-Absorbing the sweat?
-Absorbing/neutralising the odorous molecules?
-Killing the bacteria that cause the odours?

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I believe that the alkalinity of the baking soda makes a bad environment for the bacteria that causes body odor. No bacteria equals no bacterial waste which causes the stench of body odor. I have been using Baking Soda since I first saw it on this forum. As long as I am diligent, and use it everytime that I shower, I have absolutely no odor. One question for the forum: How do you guys store your BS? Mine always gets a little wet and cakey. I use it to brush teeth as well, just wanted to know if anybody stored it a special way so it stays dry and powdery. Thanks!!

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
So I'm thinking about dissolving baking soda in water and putting it in a spray-top bottle you can buy online. Either pure or with a bit of essential oil for a slight scent.

Having mixed baking soda and water it tends to form residue on the bottom of the glass, but this can be fixed by shaking.

Anyone tried this? Any reason why it wouldn't work? Any other ingredients needed to make it work properly?

Here are some recipes: http://raising6kids.wordpress.com/2013/0...ant-ideas/ - I'll try it out and report back.

Speed Stick Power Antiperspirant and deodorant smells damn good. What do you pro-baking soda deodorant users use for fragrance if any in the armpits?

My underarms smell like raw onions after wearing a jail like jumpsuit for 12 hours in the sun. I've never smelled like this before but I guess the sweat and funk is just getting trapped in there all day until I take it off. I might need to switch to Baking Soda.

How do you use baking soda as a tooth paste? I'm assuming you create a paste (b soda mixed with water), if so, in what proportions should they be mixed?

RE: Baking Soda for deodorant?
I got a rash just above my armpits on my arms. Been using BS for probably a year now with great results except the rash, which itches. Gonna try a 50/50 blend with cornstarch and see where that gets me.

I just shake a bit into the palm of my hand and then dip my wet toothbrush in it and brush my teeth. Once the baking soda gets on your brush and in your mouth it mixes with saliva/water and you get a paste. You could also mix it with coconut oil and a host of other things.

Just search "natural toothpowder recipes" or natural toothpaste recipes.

Been using BS+CS for 2 months now. Will never go back.

You have to find the right mixture of the 2 and stir well. After I showerI take 2 wet fingers and stick them into my bag that has my BS+CS mixture and wipe it under my arms. I spread it up and down the hair making sure the area is still wet. When I dry off with a towel I dab my armpits instead of wipe. Lasts a solid 2-2.5 days without any BO.

Yes I did. I got distilled water and mixed in some baking soda and Epsom salts. I wasn't very scientific about it, just mixed in as much as the water would take.

First I bought:
8x Atomizer aromatherapy spray bottles
1/2 lb baking soda
1 lb Epsom salts
1 bottle lemongrass essential oil

I made one plain spray with more baking soda and another with less baking soda but a couple of lemongrass essential oil drops for scent.

It works okay, but it's weaker than applying baking soda directly. There's no way you can get as much baking soda on by just spraying. Towards the end of the day I would start smelling sweat. When I apply baking soda directly I can stay fresh into the following morning.

With regular use I had no problem with the spray cap clogging up. The spray sometimes weakened but after pressing it hard a few times it started flowing again. However, after a couple of weeks of not using one of the bottles (stronger solution) it had clogged up and become unusable.

Another problem was that it doesn't last that long. Because the solution is fairly weak I found myself spraying on a lot for desired effect. This means that the bottle empties fairly quickly, within a couple of weeks of everyday use.

There's still plenty of experimentation to be done in terms of strength of the solution, amount of baking soda vs. epsom salt, etc.

It's refreshing having a lightly scented spray around. You can use it for feet, balls too. However, I haven't been able to get it as effective as applying baking soda powder directly - and maybe it can't be done with this method.

So all in all mixed results and not all that successful. I'll report back after I cook up the next batch. I want to up the baking soda concentration and see if it can be made more effective by adding more.

This is the heat rock: [Image: 41wEPeNQ6TL._SY450_.jpg]

The ingredients are basically baking soda and plant oils, works better than any commercial deodorant I've ever used before.
