Best deodorants for pouch

Tue Aug 25, 2020 10:07 am
This is a great community. Consider joining.

I'm now regularly using liquid deodorant drops in my pouch. What a difference for bathroom smell!  Has anyone discovered an inexpensive one?  I sometimes runs out of the one I get with my supplies, so looking for suggestions. 

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

I use baby oil all the time and find it works well for lubricant and odor and is relatively inexpensive.  Plus I buy the 3 oz travel size baby oil for when I travel and out for dinner etc.  These go through TSA no problem in a back pack or carry on too. Stay well. Penguins7

Nothing cheaper or more effective than baking soda.

You just put some in your pouch?  How much do you use?

Hi my stoma nurse gave me a recommendation a few weeks ago and it is amazing makes a massive difference, and the best bit is it's cheap

Peppermint extract (the type you use in baking) a couple of drops in the bottom of the bag and 👃

Hello everyone!

 The best thing I have found for deodorant in my pouch is a peppermint dietary gel cap. I just drop one in my pouch first thing in the morning, especially if I'm going out. My output is minty fresh for most of the day.

It must be the gel caps! There's peppermint oil inside and when the gel melts the oil is released in the pouch.
