...and make your own deodorant. Yeah, I realize it sounds gross, but it's very do-able and I can vouch for the the antiperspirant powers it holds. With just a few items from your kitchen, you can save serious dough and gain some DIY brownie points:

Here's how:
  1. In a reusable/ resealable container, mix one part baking soda with six parts cornstarch.
  2. Close the container and shake vigorously for a minute.
  3. Then, test the mix by dusting a small amount to the skin of your armpits with a soft cotton ball,or cosmetic applicator. Apply as if you were lightly applying baby or cosmetic powder.
That's it! The best part? Your new deodorant won't leave white spots or streaks on that little black dress you wear everywhere! You can even store your new deodorant glamorously with an antique or vintage make-up container like Melinda's done.

With this handy recipe, you'll be smelling fresh in no time... minus the harsh toxins of most over-the-counter deodorants. I'll sniff to that!
