Deodorant approach that works for me

    Due to concerns about deodorants, aluminum etc. I started
    using Tom's of Maine deodorant but I still stank! (putting
    it subtly, ha ha).

    Someone on this board mentioned baking soda and although
    baking soda alone wasn't effective, I have found that
    putting on Tom's (something else similar prob. wd. work too)
    then powdering on baking soda with a little cotton pad
    is just the right combo.

    No more "honey, can you keep your arms down?" comments.

    Worth a try, and let me know if it works for anyone else.

    Love,
    C

    Don't forget cornstarch. It goes on real smoothly.
