You Don't Need A Deodorant: 5 Simple Ways To Treat Armpit Odor

The odor can be caused by poor hygiene or not using the right products. Or there may be an underlying medical condition that needs to be treated. Using an over-the-counter (OTC) antiperspirant or deodorant (or a combination antiperspirant-deodorant) daily, after your shower, can help remedy armpit odor. However, in case, you cannot afford an antiperspirant-deodorant spray, try these home remedy to fight armpit odor.

Here are inexpensive ways to get rid of armpit odor at home.


The acidic properties of lemon help kill smell creating bacteria. Lemon is also known for changing the pH levels of the skin. Slice a lemon and rub it gently on your armpits. Repeat this process twice daily.

Tomato Pulp

Extract pulp from a tomato and apply it directly on your armpits. Leave it for 15 minutes. Clean it and experience the after-effects. To get effective results, practice this remedy for a few weeks.

Baby powder

The mild fragrance of baby powder helps eliminate underarm odor. Apply some baby powder under your armpits to lessen the bad smell.

Baking soda

Baking soda is an effective remedy to cure underarm odor. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix well and apply it to the armpits. Let it rest for some time. Rinse off with clean water.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is considered a wonderful remedy. It is one of the best replacements for deodorant. The anti-bacterial properties fight off bacterial growth.
