    Default Tried and Tested my "Deoderant" again!!

    Some time ago, I posted a list of "Double Duty" products and one of the tips was to use "Witch Hazel" as a deoderant.

    Well, yesterday morning it was Hotter than Spain here in England and VERY humid too, but I soaked a cotton wool pad and liberally applied the Witch Hazel to my pits and went shopping in to the nearby City, where the vast majoority of stores do NOT have AC ..............it was hot,people, really warm and muggy anyway after three hours and a sweaty journey home and a warm & muggy evening at home I bravely sniifed my pits and behold they smelled of absoloutly NOTHING!!!!!!!!

    I have worn strong anti perspirant before now on similar days and had a very faint smell, but I am very impressed..... I have worn this many times at home on "normal days" but I have never put through such a tough test

    For the record I am not a sweaty person, I "glow"in a ladylike manner but yesterday I was "glowing " pretty hard and fast

    So if you want a very cheap non chemical alternative to whats in the stores then it might be worth a go!

    I did get hubby to check me out so that It was an unbiased sniff test too

    That's very interesting, I'd never heard that. Certainly worth a try for me!

    That's very interesting. Thanks for your experiment. I wouldn't have thought to try it and think it's a great idea.

    You can find it in any Wal-mart near the rubbing alcohol

    Karen -

    My mental image of your hubby giving your pits an "unbiased sniff test" cracks me up!

    I tried it, and it worked. I was surprised. I am not used to not smelling my deodorant throughout the day though
