Deodorant stains on clothes are an urgent problem for almost everyone. They can ruin not only the appearance of your favorite clothes but also the mood of their owners.

However, don't worry, because there are effective methods that will help restore your clothes to their original appearance. Real Simple will tell you about them.

Underarm stains on clothes appear due to the reaction between antiperspirant components and sweat. If you notice this problem early enough, you can get rid of them quite easily.

Colored clothes

Combine two tablespoons of distilled white vinegar and two tablespoons of cool water in a small container. Then place your T-shirt or shirt on the wrong side of a towel, dip a soft-bristled brush or an old toothbrush into the solution, and rub thoroughly in the areas where there are stains.

Next, fill a sink or basin with cool water, add one cup of distilled white vinegar, put the fabric in it, and leave it for at least 30 minutes. After that, wash the clothes as usual.

White clothes

White clothes usually have yellow or gray stains on them. To get rid of them, mix one-quarter cup of baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and cool water. Place the t-shirt or shirt on the wrong side of a white towel and use a soft-bristled brush to apply the mixture to the deodorant stains.

Rub the stains well and leave it on for 30 minutes for the solution to work.

Finally, wash your clothes in warm water. If yellow or gray marks remain on your underarms, apply the baking soda, peroxide, and water mixture again.

Black clothes

If your black or dark tops have deodorant stripes on the outside, use one of these three tips:

  • Take a piece of foam rubber and rub the stains away;
  • Wipe off the deodorant streaks with dryer sheets;
  • Rub the fabric against itself before washing to loosen the dirt.

  • Allow deodorant to dry completely before getting dressed;
  • Switch to a deodorant without aluminum;
  • Avoid applying too much deodorant;
  • Try changing the type and brand of deodorant;
  • Wear a thin shirt under your clothes to prevent stains.
