There are hundreds of personal hygiene washers on the market that ensure your rooms stay clean and odor free. Before trying any of them, remember that they are full of chemicals that can damage the intimate area.
Why don’t you make your own? It is very easy, very cheap, and contains no chemicals. All you need is baking soda. This miracle white powder will help you fight vaginal infections and keep your private organs odor-free.
A woman’s private space is slightly acidic in nature, with a pH of 3.5 to 4.5. When the level goes up or down, problems appear. Some of the problems that arise due to the imbalance in the pH level include excessive vaginal discharge, yeast infection, itching, bad smell, and painful intercourse.
Baking soda can help restore the pH balance because it is alkaline in nature. When an alkaline substance is mixed with something acidic, it neutralizes it. This means that when you use baking soda to wash your private organs, the baking soda increases the vaginal pH balance to an optimal level.
Here’s how to use baking soda to improve your vaginal health:
- Wash the vulva
In a cup, mix a little warm water with two teaspoons of baking soda. Use the mixture to clean the entire intimate area. Once you’ve cleaned your pieces with the mixture, wash them again with water and let them air dry.
- Bath salt
In a bucket filled with warm water, add half a cup of baking soda. Pour the mixture into the sink and soak your lower body for at least 20 minutes. Take a shower and let it dry afterward.
- After our period
Menstrual blood has a pH of 7.5 which makes the area dry and itchy. Always do a soda wash after your period ends to restore the pH balance.
- Hormonal fluctuations
Menopause and other health issues can upset the pH balance of your reproductive organs. Baking soda can definitely help here.
- If you have a bad smell and itching
This may indicate that you have a yeast infection. Use a baking soda solution to soothe the problem. Sometimes it can also indicate a serious gynecological problem that needs to be examined by an expert.
