1tbsp baking soda
6tbsp corn starch
apply to clean armpits with a powder brush. Next spray on scent of your choice. I've been using an old body spray over this, but I'm working on perfecting my own scented recipe. I like that it doesn't smell like deodorant. It just smells like whatever I want it to. The only catch is that your pits need to be clean which is problematic on those (numerous) days I'm too lazy to shower. On day two I use baby wipes before powdering up (if I have it I even splash on moisturizing rose water toner before I move ahead- recipe forthcoming). It's just not strong enough to cover up a couple days worth of stink.
It held up during all regular activities and even worked pretty well on a heart rate raising walk. The only miss was under a polyester shirt all day -- but what deodorant works under polyester. So that's my diy for the day.
