How To

The No Sweat Way To Remove Natural Deodorant Stains

Apr 19, 2021

Finding a natural deodorant that works to actually keep sweat and odor at bay is one thing. Finding a natural deodorant that works and doesn’t stain your shirt is another. Until you can find one that does both (if you do, let us know!), our no sweat tricks will remove every trace of those natural deodorant stains from your tops. Read on for how...

TREAT THE MARK

Deodorant and sweat marks are the pits. To remove them, lather a Wash & Stain Bar with war warm water and use our soft Stain Brush to work the treatment into the fabric. Next, soak the item in the hottest water the fabric can tolerate for 30 minutes. (Silk, delicate, or woolen? Use cool water.). Tip: Regularly pretreating the underarm area of tops, especially white-colored ones, helps to prevent, or at least mitigate, the appearance of these stains over time.

TARGET ODORS

Sometimes pit stains can give off a funky smelling odor. To kick that, mix ¼ cup Scented Vinegar to the soak water or add 1 cup directly to the drum of the washing machine when you launder it.

BRIGHTEN YELLOWING

If the pit stain has turned yellow, you’re going to need something with a little more muscle to lift it. If your shirt is made from durable cotton, linen, or a synthetic (like activewear), try spreading Stain Solution over the underarm area, then sprinkle 1/2 a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on top. Next, using a Stain Brush dipped in very hot water, work the two products into a paste before immediately washing, or pre-soak before washing.

WASH

Wash the garment with Signature Detergent for everyday laundry, warm water, and a normal cycle. Add a capful or two of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative for some extra brightening oomph. Handwash or machine wash silk and delicates or woolens with Delicate Wash or Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, respectively, cool water, and a delicate cycle.

DRY

Be sure the deodorant mark is completely removed before placing the item in the dryer, as drying can further set in the stain. If it hasn’t lifted, repeat the process.
