How to remove deodorant traces from clothes: 5 simple ways
Even the most expensive deodorants often leave traces on clothes. Sometimes they penetrate the fabric so deeply that they cannot be washed out. Even bleach doesn't help with yellow stains on white clothes, and deodorant marks on black clothes are difficult to hide.
If, even after washing in the machine, the stains do not disappear, try home life hacks. OBOZREVATEL has collected the most effective ones.
Life hack with vinegar
Vinegar should never be used on white clothes. But it is suitable for coloured and black items. Take 9% vinegar and pour a little on a cotton pad or sponge. Gently rub the vinegar into the deodorant stain. After 10 minutes, wash the clothes in the washing machine.
Life hack with lemon juice
This is the most effective and popular method. However, be careful - lemon juice will not remove old deodorant stains. Before using lemon juice on black and coloured clothes, first test them: try putting a few drops on an inconspicuous spot. Take half a lemon and squeeze the juice into a container. Lubricate the stain with the juice and leave it for 10 minutes. Then wash in cool water and detergent. The stain should come out.
Life hack with laundry soap and aspirin
A few decades ago, laundry soap was used to remove stubborn stains. It also works well with traces of deodorant. The recipe is simple: rub the stain with soaked laundry soap and wait at least half an hour. Then soak the clothes for an hour in soapy water. After that, you can machine wash it.
Experts also recommend buying aspirin at the pharmacy. Dissolve 2 tablets completely in 70 ml of cool water. The resulting mixture should be used to rub sweat stains using an old toothbrush. It is advised to leave the solution for at least 3 hours.
Life hack with old tights
Using nylon tights to deal with traces of deodorant is rather strange, but experts say that this method was once very popular. It is advised to simply wipe off a dried deodorant stain on black or coloured clothes with a piece of unnecessary nylon.
Life hack with glycerine
Glycerine will also remove sweat and deodorant stains quickly and efficiently. You can even use a dishwashing detergent that contains glycerin. Apply a thick layer of it to the stain and leave it for an hour. Then put the item in the washing machine and wash it as usual.
