A few years ago I gave up wearing antiperspirant. This has led to a plethora of stinky days.
I have tried
- baking soda – I get huge and I mean huge boils from that. Ouch!
- coconut oil – stinky
- Tom’s of Maine – meh
- made by me – meh
- the Crystal – works good but leaves a residue in the sink
- Natural made by someone else – very pricey and can still cause irritation in the armpit area
Then I read a blog about deodorant and tried it. Alcohol. Not the rubbing kind the drinking kind. We had Vodka in the house and tried it. Put in a spray bottle, four squirts under each arm and see how the day goes. Vodka worked great for the hubs but, not so much for me. Off to the liquor store I went and purchased Everclear.
This appears to be the best option for me. A little Everclear in my armpits every day and even when I workout the stink will not kill anyone.
Do you use natural deodorant or antiperspirant?
