I tried making homemade deodorant last week.
I know. Trust me, I know.
A few years ago I tried the homemade deodorant thing, and it did not go so well. First I tried plain baking soda, which was horrifying. My skin had a bad reaction to it, and it was a painful and overall unpleasant experience.
Because I never learn, the homemade deodorant experiment was attempted again last week, this time based off an actual recipe. Baking soda, cornstarch, and coconut oil. Easy peasy. I thought the oil would relieve any weirdness with the baking soda and I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG. My underarms became twin pits of fiery hatred.
So yeah. Back to the drawing board.
My win for the week was a duct tape coin purse. My sister made a super cute pink argyle coin purse, and I had to try it myself. Mine has mustaches. Of course.
It takes about 6 minutes to make one of these, by the way. If I had spent 7 minutes on it, the pattern might have lined up.
Here’s the video tutorial we used:
A whole world of duct tape crafts has been opened to me. I have seen the light. Look out, world.
I’ll see you in a few!
