Hi, I'm Reena from, and this is how you remove armpit smells from shirts. I'm gonna give you 2 easy techniques that you can use to remove the smell. The first is called washing soda and washing soda is basically baking soda except it's a stronger version. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate and washing soda is sodium carbonate. You always want to use rubber gloves when you're working with washing soda. So what you do is just take a spoon and sprinkle some washing soda onto the armpit area. Then add a little bit of water to make a paste. Rub it in and leave it for about 30 minutes. Washing soda contains no bleaches and no phosphates so it doesn't discolor fabrics but keep in mind that there's lots of fabrics and dyes out there so you want to test everything on an inconspicuous area first. Here's another easy way to get rid of those smells. Take some mouthwash and pour it onto the area or use a cotton ball to pour it onto the area. You don't need a lot. Leave that for 30 minutes and then toss your shirt into the wash. I'm Reena from
