White clothes look beautiful and festive, but they are not very practical. Often things get dirty quickly, and stubborn stains remain even after repeated washing.

It is especially difficult to get rid of stains from sweat, ink or grease. OBOZREVATEL gathered effective tips that will help you quickly get rid of unwanted dirt.

Stains should be removed as soon as they appear. Try to wash clothes immediately after wearing them, especially on hot days. Sweat marks are hard to get rid of, and if you leave the clothes for several days, it will be almost impossible to get the sweat out.

Also, don't forget to treat soiling before washing. Pour a small amount of detergent or a special mixture to remove dirt on the stain and leave the clothes in warm water for at least 30 minutes. Then you can use a washing machine or wash by hand.

If you can't get sweat stains out with chemicals, you should make a solution yourself. Add half a teaspoon of washing powder to two tablespoons of vinegar and the same amount of cold water. Apply the solution to the soiled areas and gently scrub the stain with a brush and wash immediately.

Vinegar will not only help remove stubborn stains, but it will also soften the fabric and get rid of the unpleasant smell.

White items should be dried outdoors, this will help preserve the color. Sunlight bleaches stains and preserves the appearance. But if there are other colors on things, it is better to turn the clothes out and not over-dry them.

When powder doesn't remove stubborn dirt, it's best to use a sodium-based bleach solution. It is safe and will effectively remove the most stubborn stains. But be sure to read the instructions before using it so you don't damage the fabric.

In general, sweat stains arise from the wrong composition of deodorant. Therefore, choose a product that does not contain aluminum. The chemical reaction of deodorant and sweat affects our white shirts.
