Who has never had the unpleasant surprise of seeing these horrible yellowish stains on their favorite garment? Unfortunately, these are things that happen often.
However, the appearance of these stains does not necessarily mean the end of the life of your garment ! Today we are talking about the subject: how to get rid of sweat stains on your clothes?
Preamble: Prevention is better than cure! Where do these stains come from?
When we notice yellowish sweat stains on the armpits of your clothes, we instinctively think they are all due to sweat. However, it is important to keep in mind that certain deodorants can also cause this.
Many brand name deodorants contain aluminum. The aluminum combined with the other chemical components of the deodorant, with the fabric as well as with the rejections of your skin can end up leading (individually or together) to the appearance of these terrible stains that we hate so much.
We could deduce then that an obvious way to avoid these stains would be to replace your deodorant with an aluminum-free deodorant, right? But as you can imagine, it's not always so simple (or good enough).
Indeed, although deodorants play an important role in generating stains on clothes, the reality is that most of them are (in part or in whole) related to sweat, and sweat unfortunately cannot ( or fortunately because sweating is an important biological mechanism) not replace it.
Today, therefore, we wanted to see together some tips and tricks to get rid of sweat stains on clothes .
One of the things you need to keep in mind when using our tips below is that results may vary depending on the age of the stain as well as the type of fabric .
No more formalities, let's get to the heart of the matter!
