Unsightly yellow armpits happen all too often on sports clothes (and shirts in the summer). Usually, it results from sweat mixing with deodorant when left to fester. The best course of action is to prevent it from happening altogether: Allow your deodorant to dry completely before putting on a top, and wash white and light-colored workout wear right after using them. But if those pesky yellow stains have already made their mark, there are ways to get rid of them.
- Before tackling sweat stains, read the care label on your garment.
- Spot clean the stain using a stain remover like Purex® Fels-Naptha® Laundry Bar. Or, you can also pre-treat using a stain-fighting detergent like Persil® ProClean®.Pour a small amount of the liquid onto the stain, work it in and leave it overnight.
Set your washer to the highest possible washing temperature according to the care label and wash with the same laundry detergent.
