How to Remove Pit Stains

What Causes Armpit Stains in the First Place?

<p>  

We’ve all been there – our almost-new shirt develops yellowing under the arms, relegating it to wear only under blazers or sweaters until it can be replaced. But what if these stains were treatable? What if you could remove the underarm stains you already have, AND prevent them before they appear in new clothes? The more you know about why these stains appear, the closer you’ll be to solving this age-old laundry trial. </p>

No Time for a Pit-y Party – Solve Underarm Yellowing Today!

Underarm stains are caused by a mixture of body oils, sweat and deodorant, absorbed into the fabric of your clothes. Simple laundering will not break down this natural and artificial mixture, so some pre-treating is in order to prevent the buildup that causes the yellowing. For clothes that have avoided this fate so far, regularly pre-treat the armpits of your shirts with the Stain Solution to help break down persistent coating and prevent discoloration. Clothes that have already succumbed to yellowing need a bit more work. Create a paste of Stain Solution and All-Purpose Bleach Alternative, work it into the armpit area with a Stain Brush and let it sit. Then soak the garment in hot water (fabric permitting) and more All-Purpose Bleach Alternative for an hour. Repeat if needed until the stain is gone, then launder as appropriate. Congratulations! You’ve tackled one of life’s great challenges.
