Pantry Grooming Solutions


Raid your pantry for stench busters, teeth whiteners and skin-care solutions.


Remedy: Milk

Dip a clean washcloth into a bowl of cool milk and dab it on the burned areas (the coolness can help reduce swelling, and milk’s lactic acid has anti-inflammatory properties). Then rinse it off.


Remedy: Apple-cider vinegar

It’s not sweat that makes your pit reek – it’s the bacteria that break down your sweat. (Gross, right?) So dip a cotton ball or a washcloth into cider vinegar and rub it under your arms. Vinegar’s astringent properties won’t allow microbes to thrive. And don’t worry about the sharp smell – it dissipates quickly.


Remedy: Orange peel

Rub the white pith of the peel on your teeth, and then scrub with a wet toothbrush to lift any debris. (But do this infrequently or you may weaken the enamel.)
