There are hundreds of sanitary products on the market that are guaranteed to keep your private parts healthy and odor free. Before you try any of them, remember that they are full of chemicals that can really harm your sensitive areas.
Why not do your own laundry? It’s very easy, very cheap and contains no chemicals. All you need is baking soda. This wonderful white powder will help fight vaginal infections and keep your private parts odor-free.
A woman’s private area is slightly acidic, with a pH of 3.5-4.5. Problems occur when the level goes up or down. Some of the problems caused by a pH imbalance include: excessive vaginal discharge, yeast infections, itching, foul odor, and vaginal discharge. Baking soda is alkaline and will help restore pH balance. When alkaline substances are mixed with acidic substances, they are neutralized. This means that when you wash your private parts with baking soda, the baking soda will bring the pH balance of your vagina to an optimal level.
Here’s how to use baking soda to improve your vaginal health.
- Wash personal parts
Mix a little warm water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a bowl. Use the mixture to clean your entire intimate area. After cleaning your private parts with the mixture, wash them again with water and dry them.
- Bath salts
Pour ½ cup of baking soda into a bucket filled with warm water. Put the mixture in the bathtub and leave the lower body for 20 minutes. Take a shower and then dry off.
- After our period
Menstrual blood has a pH level of 7.5, making the area dry and itchy. Always wash with soda water after your period to restore pH balance.
- Hormonal fluctuation
Menopause and other health problems can disrupt the pH balance of your private organs. Baking soda will definitely help you here.
- If you smell and itch
This may indicate that you are suffering from a yeast infection. Use a soda solution to soothe the problem. Sometimes it can also be a sign of a serious problem in women who should be examined by an expert.
