Show No Pitty! Knock Out Pit Stains With This 1-2 Punch

Oct 17, 2019

Pit stains can create a not-so-mellow yellow on even your newest white shirts making them look dingy and dirty before their time. Luckily, you don’t have to hang your favorite top out to dry just yet. Want to know our dirty little secret? Eliminating the unsightly pit stain was one of our first missions in creating our line of laundry & fabric care products. And lucky for you, we accomplished our goal. Give your glands a break and follow our easy guide.

GATHER THESE TOOLS:

The Pit Kit | All-Purpose Bleach Alternative | Stain Solution | Stain Brush

STEP 4

Presoak the top in a bath of hot water and The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative for at least one hour. If the stain isn’t fully removed once the soaking is completed, don’t sweat it! It often takes two to three tries before complete removal.
