White clothes look beautiful and festive, but they are not very practical. Things often 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 has collected effective tips that will quickly help you get rid of unwanted dirt.

Stains should be removed as soon as they appear. Try to wash your clothes immediately after wearing them, especially on hot days. Sweat marks are difficult to remove, and if you leave your clothes on for several days, it will be almost impossible to remove them.

Also, remember to treat dirt before washing. Pour a small amount of detergent or a special dirt remover onto the stain and leave the garment in warm water for at least 30 minutes. Then you can use a washing machine or wash by hand.

If you can't remove sweat stains with chemicals, you can create a solution yourself. Add half a teaspoon of laundry detergent to two tablespoons of vinegar and the same amount of cold water. Apply the solution to the stained areas gently scrub the stain with a brush and wash the item immediately.

Vinegar will not only help to remove stubborn stains but also soften the fabric and get rid of the unpleasant odor.

White clothes should be dried in the fresh air to help preserve the color. Sunlight whitens stains and preserves the appearance. But if there are other colors on the clothes, it is better to turn the clothes inside out and not overdry them.

When powder does not help remove stubborn dirt, it is better 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 to avoid damaging the fabric.

In general, sweat stains are caused by the wrong composition of deodorant. Therefore, choose a product that does not contain aluminum. Our white T-shirts suffer from the chemical reaction of deodorant and sweat.
