This happened to me last week while on a business trip. My deodorant stick broke and I was unable to get a new one before my appointment. Needless to say, the Florida sun in conjunction with the humidity makes deodorant more than just a good idea.
A broken deodorant stick is as useless as lips on a brick...or is it?
For this experiment, I'm going to add to my current one with one that broke earlier.
Here is what you are going to need:
2 deodorant sticks if you are combining, or 1 broken one if fixing.
1 dry paper towel
1 damp wash cloth
Step 1: Setting up
Depending on your microwave, you may need to remove the carousel plate and dolly in order to accommodate the height of your deodorant stick. If so, do this now.
Crank the remaining part all the way down to the bottom of the container. Most sticks ride on a solid platform, some do not. This way you are covered in either case plus it lowers the containers center of gravity so is is less likely to fall over.
If you are repairing one, place the broken part in top of the platform and turn the knob so it is lowered as far as possible.
If you are adding to one, this is also the time to add bits of the older one.
**Important** roll the damp wash cloth up and wrap around the base of the container. This helps to stabilize the container and also control any leaks in the remote chance the container gets over microwaved.
