Sweat stains are caused when odorless, colorless sweat reacts with aluminum in antiperspirants.
Aluminum is the active ingredient in most heavy-duty antiperspirants, and sweat also contains protein. Together your antiperspirant, sweat and cotton undershirt are a deadly yellowing combination that make those pit stains tough to get out. It’s why yellow pit stains appear on your white undershirts or dress shirts after only a few intense sweats.
Although most deodorants are aluminum-free, overusing deodorant can still produce yellow stains.
1. Meat Tenderizer
Meat Tenderizer? That’s what we thought too. Meat Tenderizer is actually made to help break down proteins, this is what makes meat more tender is the breaking down of the proteins within it. Protein is what makes sweat stains so difficult to remove, thus the need to break down the proteins and thus the meat tenderizer. This also makes it perfect to remove other protein-based stains like milk, chocolate, and blood from clothes. For fresh wet stains, sprinkle on enough meat tenderizer to cover the area and let it sit for an hour. Then brush off the dried tenderizer and launder as usual. For stains that are already set, mix water and meat tenderizer to make a paste and rub it into the stain. Wait an hour before laundering as usual.
Wait What, Aspirin??? How can Aspirin remove stains? Right there with you fam, but it does, and here is what you do: Crush two aspirins and mix the powder in 1/2 cup warm water. Soak the stained part of the garment in the solution for two to three hours.
Salt is a great equalizer from making my freshly popped popcorn more savory to allowing me to walk on icy sidewalks without biting the dust and now you can add removing Sweat Stains to that list. Yep that is right. Salt much like meat tenderizer helps to break down the proteins in sweat allowing them to be removed much easier. So here’s what you need to doz: Dissolve 4 tablespoons salt in 1 quart (1 liter) hot water. Just sponge the garment with the solution until the stain disappears.
When life gives you Lemons use them to Remove Sweat Stains. Remove unsightly underarm stains from shirts and blouses simply by scrubbing them with a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and water.
Want to see those sweat marks disappear from shirts and other garments? Just pour a bit of vinegar directly onto the stain, and rub it into the fabric before placing the item in the wash. You can also remove deodorant stains from your washable shirts and blouses by gently rubbing the spot with undiluted vinegar before laundering.
That’s the end of this list but now you have a ton of new ways to try your hand at sweat stain removal. It makes you kind of giddy doesn’t it, it’s almost enough to make you want to go and play an intense game of basketball with a bunch kids half your age just so you can do some laundry to do after. Settle down we get it but is it really worth getting a herniated disk over. No it isn’t haha.
