How To

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

Jun 18, 2015

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.

The Pit Kit

STEP 1:

Apply The Laundress Stain Solution & The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative directly to the underarm areas.

STEP 2:

Pour hot water onto the mixture to dissolve and activate The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative beads.

STEP 3:

Work the solution into the fabric with The Laundress 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.

STEP 5

Once satisfied, finish by laundering as normal with either The Laundress Signature Detergent or The Laundress Whites Detergent.

Take Note:

This process is recommended for treating durable fibers such as cotton, linen, and some synthetic materials. The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative should not be used on silks, woolens, or leathers.
