Sorry for the hijack... this is too funny to pass up...

In my head, Teresa is a biker chic with wild dark hair, artistic tattoos, a wardrobe of black leather of course, tough on the outside; jello on the inside and a "who gives a cahcah" attitude.

And, of course, Millie, you described yourself (ahem) perfectly!

Cool! You just described one of my favorite actors... Philip Seymour Hoffman!

You make your own powder? I am interested in your process. I hate commercial powders, but I like using a powder in the summer. I live in Memphis, and if it is possible, it is more hot and humid here than where you are, Teresa! Would you share what ingredients you are using?

I make my own powder as well. I'm happy to share my recipe. I'm wondering if this might be a good topic to start a new thread? (I'd move it myself except I was told I'm not allowed to "move the furniture". LOL)

Starting a new thread is a good idea.

I'm at work, but I can give you the powder recipe when I get home. I'll put it in a new thread if no one has started one yet. For the Home Sweet Home swap, I added a sample of the powder for everyone. It's got a really nice soft texture.

Your testimony about the efficacy of the products have reminded me of her recent post about smelly teenage boys.
Unfortunately, no, I didn't think about getting video evidence I should have though!

Update: temps got to mid 80's this last week and weekend and my deodorant turned into lotion. Luckily I knew it was going to happen at some point, and took precautions against mess. 84F was the lowest temp I noticed it at this consistency, at 81F the week before it was softer than normal, but still more deodorant bar than creamy lotion. I will be upping the emulsifying wax in another batch soon and seeing where that gets me. I might try a couple different mixtures (wax at 10%, 15%, 20%) just to get a better idea of what holds up and what feels more like dragging a bar of Mr Zogs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Zog%27s_Sex_Wax - don't let the name fool you, it's a surfboard wax) on my underarms than a stick of deodorant
