Easy advice for ridding your garments of pesky underarm stains.
Underarm sweat stains can crop up on your favourite tees and blouses seemingly out of the blue. But the sources are no mystery: perspiration and build-up from antiperspirant/deodorant products.
The two culprits, close up: Sweat stains can be white or clear (and undetectable), and—over time—they can turn fabric dingy grey. Stains from antiperspirant/deodorant products tend to look yellow, green, or brown, and they can feel hard or crusty.
Recommended treatment: Both types of stains have the same solution. First, it’s important to wash the garment right away. Brush the excess stain off the surface of the fabric, and rinse in cold water. Wash the garment in warm water with Ariel Automatic Power Gel Original laundry detergent. If you have a regular machine or hand-wash wash the garment with Ariel Powder Original.
Prevention: To help stave off future stains, it’s best to wash garments soon after each wearing. Letting them linger in the dirty clothes hamper for days gives stains a chance to settle in. If the stain is caused by an antiperspirant/deodorant, be sure to apply a very thin layer of the product to your skin, and always wait a few minutes for a liquid or creamy product to dry before getting dressed. Both steps will reduce the chance that it migrates to your clothes. Take that, sweat!
