Bring Baking Soda to your Bathroom

According to the Arm and Hammer box, there are hundreds of uses for baking soda. I knew the powder is known for odor elimination so I decided to try it one day as deodorant. IT WORKS AWESOME! I've tried lots of "natural" deodorants and the baking soda is far superior in cost and effectiveness. Just put some on an old make up brush and dust it on (some people like to add in cornstarch to give it a softer texture).

In case you're wondering; aluminum found in most deodorant is absorbed into your skin and has been linked to cancer, and Alzheimer's disease (sweat is one of the body's primary ways of getting rid of toxins and if you use anti-perspirants, the toxins have nowhere to go). 

Some other uses for baking soda in your bathroom?
     * Make a paste of baking soda and water to exfoliate your face
     * Mix with a bit of castille soap, and water to clean your
     * Sprinkle on your toothbrush and brush away
