Introduction: Homemade Deodorant/Antiperspirant
Today, I'm going to show you how to make your own deodorant/antiperspirant with household items.
Cred to scoochmaroo for inspiring me to create my own recipe.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients
A small air tight jar
Step 2: Combining
Put the baking soda and the talcum powder in the jar first, then the rubbing alcohol, then the Vicks.
Use approx 3 parts baking soda, 1 part talcum powder, 2 parts alcohol, and 2 parts Vicks.
(Perhaps add a little bit more alcohol than Vicks though)
*Thanks ERCCRE123 for helping clear up the ratios.
Step 3: Mix
Close the lid then shake vigorously until completely mixed.
Step 4: Finished
If you have an extra tube for deodorant and you make your paste extra thick then pack it into one of those. If not then keep it in the jar and apply with your finger.
Keep rubbing it in until there is no more baking soda residue.
I find this lasts for approx 12 hours.
Hope you like my Instructable.
