No one ever wants to admit that they have ever had to contend with under arm stains or worse, under arm odor. But itâ€™s just a fact of life; itâ€™s not that there is bad hygiene afoot. Sometimes bad things just happen to good people.
Maybe your husband, who plays basketball three nights a week, is having yellowing in the underarm area of his favorite university t-shirt. He wonâ€™t throw it out. So you have to find a way to salvage it.
Letâ€™s not bemoan the fact, letâ€™s just admit that there may be an issue and letâ€™s get going on a remedy, right? Besides, we all have a friend who could use some help understanding how to get rid of underarm stains. Here are a couple tips for those friends, who shall remain nameless.
How to Remove Underarm Stains
Removing yellow underarm stains: This stain is caused by sweat and antiperspirant build up on fabric. See, no need to be embarrassed.
Start by rinsing stains for 20 seconds with cold water to dilute trapped salts and acids. Then work in some liquid laundry detergent. Let that sit for 20 minutes. Then wash in the hottest water that is safe for the fabric.
Removing embarrassing odor: Sweat is odorless but the bacteria on your skin can make it stinky, stinky, and stinky. Fabrics then absorb and trap the stench.
Combat mild odors by adding a cup of baking soda to each loadâ€™s wash cycle. For stubborn odors, dilute three tablespoons of salt in a quart of warm water and soak the garment for an hour. Then rinse and wash as usual.
