Solution: No Sweat Stain Removers

You know the deodorant commercials where the bridesmaids don’t want to raise their arms to catch the bouquet? I felt like that today, but instead of being fearful of stink, I was worried someone would notice the yellow, sweat stained arm pits of my white shirt… which I somehow didn’t notice when I got dressed.

 

While noticing the stains in a meeting might be a little too late to do anything about them, there are a few products out there that can help you get the stains out before it’s too late.

 

First of all, don’t pick up the bleach! The chlorine in household bleach will react with the proteins in perspiration and turn it even darker.

 

Instead, grab a liquid detergent like Tide Liquid and pretreat, letting the detergent sit on the stain for 30 minutes. Then wash it with a non-chlorine bleach detergent, like Tide with Bleach Alternative. If the stain is still there, instead of putting it in the dryer, treat it again with the liquid detergent, put it outside in the sun until dry and then wash again.

If the detergent still doesn’t work, try mixing equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide. Pour it over the stain and let sit for 30 minutes before washing on cool.

 

Finally, for budget conscious stain fighters, a color-safe alternative is mixing one tablespoon of white vinegar with one cup of water, and then pretreating the stain for 30 minutes before washing.
