How to wash off sweat stains

I am sure that we all hate sweat stains and antiperspirant stains on clothing that are particularly visible in the white T-shirts and shirts. Plain washing of the shirt does not seem to help. That is why we often try to seek the solution in household items.


Yellow spots, particularly in the area of the armpit on clothing, are a nightmare. But rather than throw your favorite T-shirt, try using a simple trick- aspirin. Turn two aspirins into a powder and mix them with half a glass of water. Soak the shirt in this mixture for 3 hours, and after that wash as usually.


Some housewives claim that they have a powerful secret ingredient when it comes to removing yellow sweat stains from shirts-salt. Dissolve 4 tablespoons of salt in 1 liter of hot water. Soak the stained clothing in this solution until the yellow traces disappear.


You can try to solve problems of yellow stains with lemon. Yellow traces resulting from sweat and antiperspirants can also be removed by rubbing the stains with composition of equal ratio of pure lemon juice and water.


One of the most effective ways to approach this problem is usually the kitchen vinegar. Just pour some vinegar directly on the stain and rub it into the fabric before you put it in the washing machine. For best results, repeat this process a couple of times.

Baking soda

Make a mixture of 4 tablespoons of baking soda and 1/4 cup hot water. Rub the mixture directly on the stain and wash as usual. With heavy stains, leave the paste on clothing for at least two hours, until it dries, and then put the fabric in the washing machine.

Cold water

Fresh stains of sweat are best to treat with cold running water. And if your clothing is already yellowed, do not wash it in the washing machine with hot water, because that way you will only make stains worse.


If you have problems with intense sweating, “pools” and yellow spots then find special clinically approved sprays against overly excessive sweating and odor. Antiperspirant should be applied before going to bed. It will remain active during the day and even until the morning shower.
