Homemade deodorant: I’ve been using this for a while now, and really like it. I more ‘dab’ it on than roll it on like conventional deodorant. It works better (on smell) than any other natural brand I had tried. Does nothing for dampness, but I believe we’re designed to sweat for a reason, so I have no desire to stop perspiration.
Baking Soda as shampoo and vinegar as a conditioner: Again, impressed with these natural alternatives. I’ve been converted and now use my Herbal Essenes shampoo to clean the toilet. ~grin~ Not quite sure what to do with my remaining conditioner. I’ll also put a dab of vinegar on my wash cloth while in the shower and use that to clean the shower doors on my way out. I had heard that hair can start ‘rebelling’ to the treatment about a month into it, but I haven’t had any problem. I did end up using regular shampoo once because someone carried my baking soda out of the tub with him and took it down stairs, and I still had the regular stuff in there when I took a shower. It left my hair all frizzy and staticky and I couldn’t wait to re-wash with baking soda to calm it down. I’ll see if I can find a recent picture of me with my ‘no poo’ hair, just so you can confirm that it’s not greasy or dull or ucky.
Tooth soap: Still love how this makes my teeth feel so clean. Still planning on updating in a few months on whether I can feel surface cavities remineralization or not.
