Did that bargain antiperspirant leave you with embarrassing white streaks on your button-down shirt or unsightly wet marks on your favorite blouse? No worries--you can usually remove these blights without too much effort.
Things You'll Need
- Color-safe Bleach
- Laundry Detergent With Enzymes
- White Vinegar
Act as soon as possible to minimize chemical staining. Sponge white vinegar on the underarm stains to loosen the buildup of the deodorant's aluminum chloride or zinc salts, which discolor and weaken fabric over time.
Soak stubborn stains overnight in an enzyme-containing laundry detergent.
Launder with your usual detergent and color-safe bleach in the warmest water safe for your garment.
