This armpit detox recipe uses ingredients that “soak up” unwanted bacteria and other ingredients from your armpits, leaving behind smoother, less odor-producing skin.


  • 1 tablespoon bentonite clay, activated charcoal or baking soda (or 1 teaspoon each)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons water


  1. Combine the ingredients to make a paste.
  2. Mix all ingredients together, then apply the mask to your pits generously.
  3. Wait 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water and soap.
  4. You can repeat this process every several days if you’d like, assuming you have no negative reactions.
