Goo Gone (or, what to do with homemade deodorant)

I made some baking soda deodorant for myself the other day. (Ok, it was a longer while ago than that…)

And it just didn’t work for me.  It was nice-smelling, and I really, really wanted it to work. But I guess my skin is a bit sensitive, and the format was just a bit messy, and I just wasn’t feeling it.

Vanilla-scented Goop in a tin. Sigh.

 

So it sat on the shelf. I didn’t want to throw it out.

Fast forward to sometime last week, when I discovered that making a paste of oil and baking soda is a recommended way to remove goo from glass. I had some glass jars and bottles I was hoping to re-purpose, so I had to try it!

 

Put the gunk on the goo that you want gone.

It worked perfectly!

Squeaky clean!

Keep in mind that removing the actual sticker goo takes some scrubbing, and that you should wash it with dish soap to remove the oil. But I sure love being able to repurpose those lovely glass jars and bottles that accumulate in our house.
