I live with my boyfriend of 6 years, so someone will definitely be here to encourage me during the fast. He can never smell the odor, but he understands that I want to take steps in eliminating it.
I had been planning to not smoke during this time, at least. I think that will be harder than the food fasting!
I also saw another post in the forum that you made about detergent. For as long as I can remember, I have used ALL Free & Clear, but last month my mom gave us the Purex equivalent. I think I will switch back to the ALL, and maybe try the Borax you recommended.
