I find the Crystal sticks sometimes work for a little bit, sometimes a day or two, or maybe most of the day, but definitely not anywhere as well as bicarb.
I have it in an old film container, after I get out of the shower I just “scoop” a bit out on my index finger, and “rub” it into my “dried but still damp” armpits.
I found due to the limited capacity of my finger tip to hold the bicarb I need to do this a few times and its also handy to wipe it upwards into your armpit to get as much of the bicarb to make contact with the skin, so it doesn’t fall off, then I just sort of rub it in a bit, you could use an old talc container, or something similar, to “squirt” it into your armpits.January 13, 2014 at 5:27 pm #534819calliecatParticipant

I just scoop up with my finger tips and rub it on/in, might give it a go with damp fingers, never tried that before, needless to say with me, it gets everywhere LOLJanuary 13, 2014 at 11:12 pm #534820BronMember
If my fingertips aren’t damp enough, I dip them in water, into the bicarb and use that.January 13, 2014 at 11:42 pm #534821
Thanks for the tips! I shall give it a go. Or maybe after this week of 40+ temperatures….. :sick:January 14, 2014 at 12:56 pm #534822
This week would be the ultimate test as to if it works or not!!!!…if its going to fail it will be in this weather, especially with the humidity after the storms last night.January 14, 2014 at 3:55 pm #534823

Righto Vanessa – I’ll take your challenge! Starting tomorrow…January 14, 2014 at 6:20 pm #534824
Look forward to hearing how it goes!!January 15, 2014 at 1:32 am #534825mudhenMember
Here are some sites I pinned to go back to “one day” – I have heard that the straight bi-carb causes skin irritations in the majority of people after a few weeks, so these might offer an alternative:January 15, 2014 at 4:37 pm #534826calliecatParticipant

thought it was something like that -hence the cornflour with it in my recipeJanuary 17, 2014 at 5:58 pm #534827
Sounds really good Misti! I chickened out last week with starting the bicarb regime, might have to give you method a go. Thanks!
