3 Simple Ways To Keep Your Shirts From Getting Pit Stains

Pit stains are the worst. It’s one of those situations where ignorance is bliss — if you don’t know that you have pit stains, it’s all good, it’s doubtful that anyone will bring them up. However, once you find out —and OMG, you always do— it’s not only embarrassing, but the awareness of the stain usually causes you (or me, anyway) to sweat even more! It’s a never-ending cycle of sweat and shame!

Luckily, there are ways to avoid this oh-so common snafu. With these three expert tips you’ll be able to stop sweat stains in their tracks — you’re on your way to becoming the Indiana Jones of sweat stains, girl!

Baby Powder

For dress shirts, add a pinch of baby powder to the underarms and iron it in. The baby powder will act as a shield against those pesky sweat-spots. Do this before every wear and you’re golden!

Sweat Shields

This sweat hack is THE. SWEAT. HACK. These genius pads literally stick to the underarm area of your shirt and absorb your sweat. For $2.99, you can get a pack of 10 from Sweatex.com. That’s a small price to pay for a week’s worth sweat-free garments!

Cotton Undershirts

Like sweat shields, a good undershirt will simply absorb your sweat before it arrives at the main attraction (the shirt you want people to see). If you’re ready to jump on the undershirt bandwagon, but worried that the extra layer will make you overheated, choose a cotton variety. Cotton will keep you cool, dry, and confidently pit stain-free!
