The only ingredient is Potassium Alum, it is rock hard and must be moistened before applying. I guess I could take a picture of it and post if anyone is interested. About a 4 oz crystal costs approx 7 euro and lasts more than a year (unless you drop it ).

White vinegar is great for so many things, I use also to freshen the washing machine and dishwasher, too.

I didn't mean to imply the crystal salt was sticky. I meant I would get sticky if I did anything physical, as the salt doesn't have any particular anti-perspirant attributes. It's just a deodorant. I'm sure Queenie doesn't sweat, like all the ladies on the forum. A little misty, maybe, after mowing the lawn or something.

And Ha, as I remember from your pictures, you have as little use for a hairdryer as I do. You'll have to call it something else. Air stream personal heat applicator, or something.

Well, I didn't say where the hair is located. I have plenty hair, it is just equably distributed.

@ Harley - your a true gentleman. As they say "horses sweat, men perspire and women glow" and your right the crystal is not an anti-perspirant, but anti-p's are not all that good for you... (my 2 cents).

@ Ha - umm, would you like to elaborate or would that be asking too much?
