How do you remove deodorant stains from shirts?

Removing deodorant stains from shirts may seem like a challenge, but with the right methods, it’s easy to do. Before washing, pre-treat the stain with a specific laundry detergent or a paste made of baking soda and water, but always pay attention to the instructions on your shirt's care label. Use cold or lukewarm water and a high-quality detergent. If the stain persists, soak the shirt in a solution of lukewarm water and vinegar or water and salt for around 30 minutes before washing by hand or in the machine.
Use an old toothbrush or a soft brush to gently scrub the stain before washing. After washing, check that the stain has completely disappeared before drying the shirt. Drying in the sun can help remove any residue. By following these simple steps, you can say goodbye to annoying deodorant stains and keep your shirts looking impeccable.

  1. Treat stains promptly: when you notice a deodorant stain, act immediately. Rinse the area with cold water to remove excess product before it dries and penetrates into the fabric
  2. Use a solution of vinegar and water: mix one part white vinegar with three parts water and dab the stain. Vinegar is a powerful natural cleaning agent that can break down deodorant.
  3. Specific detergent: opt for a specific cleaning product for deodorant stains and carefully follow the instructions on the label.
  4. Separate washes: wash clothes with deodorant stains separately from clean clothes. Avoid overloading the washing machine to ensure an effective wash.
  5. Drying correctly: do not dry the garment in a tumble dryer until the stain is completely gone, as heat can set it in place.

With these tips, you can say goodbye to annoying deodorant stains and keep your clothes fresh and impeccable. The best way is to act quickly and use the right methods to remove these unwanted stains.
