Cold in chest, but getting better after day in bed. Am just so glad I'm sick now and not when the kids are on holidays :) Thanks all for kind wishes for speedy recovery.
So, the great Arm-Pittery experiment. I was perusing blogs a while ago and came across a recipe for deodorant - unforgivably I've completely forgotten the blog, but I'll post it up when it comes back to me.
Note: That is not me in the painting.
This was the recipe: 1 part baking soda to six parts cornflour.
I made up a mix of 10g Baking Soda and 60g cornflour and, using a cotton make up remover pad to dab it on, have been wearing this mix instead of my usual roll on deoderant.
Day 1: Activity low, Weather hot - Deodorant effectiveness according to Hubby - Good
Day 2: Activity medium, Weather hot - Deoderant effectivness according to Hubby - Good
Deodorant effectiveness according to Mum - "STOP MAKING ME SMELL YOUR ARMPITS"
Day 3: Activity Building chicken coop in 30+ degree heat, Weather very hot - Deodorant effectiveness according to Hubby - Amazing.
Day 4: Activity low, Weather warm - Did not use any deodorant (as part of experiment, honest) - Hubby "Go and have a shower now please"
Day 5: Activity low (but nervous tension high), Weather cool - Deodorant effectiveness according to hubby - "You smell FINE, can we stop this experiment now? Please?"
So there you have it. I'm a convert. Cornflour and baking soda held up very nicely.
Next, for part two of the experiment, I'm going to have a go at a tea tree roll-on deodorant that I saw on Julie's Blog Towards Sustainability.
Shall let you know how it goes.
