How To Remove Pit Stains

One of the primary Laundress missions is conquering the "pit stain". This is a very common problem and a frustrating one at that!

The stains (sometimes more yellow, some gray) are from the combination of the natural body oils, deodorant, and fabric absorption. To remove these stains & more, follow our recipes below – and happy laundering!


  • Apply Stain Solution to the stain.
  • Work the Stain Solution into the stained area with our Stain Brush.
  • Pour hot water from a height to be more effective and soak.
  • If stain has faded, but isn't completely gone, repeat the process until satisfied.
  • To remove odors: pre-wash or pre-soak with Signature Detergent. Work Stain Solution into the fabric. Soak well.
  • Launder as normal.

Machine Washing

Dry & Finish

  • Do not dry any items that still have stains.
  • Hang to dry on a line in the sun for energy efficiency, natural whitening and that awesome fresh line experience - or use the dryer.
