Yellow deodorant stains: Here's how to get them out of your shirt
Bloody irritating, those yellow deodorant stains in your (especially white) clothes. The combination of aluminium from your deodorant and sweat is often the culprit behind these stains. Not to worry, we have natural solutions to get rid of them and avoid them for good. The longer you let these stains run their course, the bigger the challenge becomes to make them disappear. So hop to it.
1. Baking soda
What can't baking soda (aka bicarbonate of soda) actually do? Mix it with some water to create a paste and smear it over the yellow stains. Leave this mixture on for a few hours before putting your clothes in the washing machine. Again, the power of this salt will amaze you.
2. Green soap
Do you have green soap at home? Then you are in luck, because this natural wonder is also a stain remover. Apply it to the yellow spots and let it do its job for a few hours. Or, if the stains are widespread, soak the entire garment in a powerful soak of green soap. Rinse or use the washing machine, and gone are your yellow stains.
3. Vinegar, who else?
Soaking overnight in vinegar can do wonders for garments affected by sweat stains. The next day, you can wash your clothes as usual, and voilà, the stains are gone, as if they were never there.
How to prevent them forever:
And now, a tip to avoid this whole staining issue once and for all: consider switching to aluminium-free deodorant, ours for example. This choice not only minimises the risk of yellow stains but also keeps you wonderfully fresh. Experience shows that you can often wear your shirt longer before it is supposed to go into the laundry bin at all.
