How to remove deodorant stains | 5 tips on how to get deodorant stains out of shirts and other clothes

Deodorant deals with nasty odours, such as sweat. But...it can also produce stains. In light clothes it often causes yellow stains. And white stripes in dark clothes. But how do you remove those nasty deodorant stains from white clothes. Or how do you get deodorant stains out of black shirts. We provide some convenient tips.

Why is it so difficult to remove deodorant stains?


Removing yellow deodorant stains is particularly difficult. That is because they are the result of a reaction between sweat and deodorant. This shows up in white and light clothes in particular. In black clothes, these stains are formed too but they show up less. And in black clothes you are more likely to have white stripes. The white stripes come from the deodorant itself. It is easier to remove white deodorant stains from black clothes than to remove yellow ones from white clothes. But if you leave them too long, they can still turn stubborn. Removing these absorbed deodorant stains is not that easy.
