DIY Arrowroot Powder Deodorant Powder

Previously I’ve made homemade deodorant powder using a combination of cornstarch and baking soda.  It’s a pretty simple recipe to be sure, but I wanted to see if it even needs to be that complicated.  I wanted to see if you really need both ingredients to make an effective deodorant powder.

Homemade Shoe Deodorizer Sachets

I recently did a post on how to make your own homemade shoe deodorizer powder which works great.  But there are some shoes that I wouldn’t ever want to dump a load of powder into, and I’m sure you probably do too.

So to solve that problem, I came up with my own solution for homemade shoe deodorizers which doesn’t require you to pour powder into you shoes to get those unpleasant smells out.  Instead the end result is a tidy little bundle that works just as well and looks a lot nicer than a pile of powder too, and you can make them in whatever fabric you like.
