White shirts shall be the death of me. I’ve seen oh too many turn to the dark (yellowish) side and land in the trash. Those yellow pit-stains are strong and near impossible to remove. Once they appear, your shirt is a goner. Luckily, there are ways to stop these stains dead in their tracks!
First, we must locate the culprit. No, it’s not you and your weirdly yellow-tinged sweat. The enemy at hand is your evil aluminum-containing antiperspirant! Most of us use a deodorant that doubles as an antiperspirant — both odor and sweat blocking. Well, as it turns out, the same compound that reduces your sweat turns your pit-stains yellow!
The solution is pretty simple: say no to aluminum! There are plenty of natural deodorants that don’t contain aluminum and do not cause this gross discoloration.
Behold, a world of white tees that stay that way!
