    Armpit stains?

    A couple of my shirts have really nasty yellow armpit stains. Is there any way to get rid of these without buying fancy products (like oxygen bleach)? I've tried regular detergent(gant?) and Stain Stick but it hasn't worked.

    Also, are the stains from antiperspirant or sweating? Or both? If both, is there anything I can use instead of antiperspirant that will keep me from sweating?

    the stains are from both antiperspirant and sweating. sweat-stains are yellow, but i think antiperspirant makes them worse. and there isn't anything i've tried that keeps the armpits from sweating other than commercial antiperspirant.

    i googled "sweat stains" and came up with a couple of recommendations; one is to soak the area in white vinegar, another is to make a paste of baking soda and water and let it dry on the stains before washing.

    if nothing else works, you could try a box of Rit laundry whitener. they have a rust stain remover that i use sometimes on my martial arts uniforms when they get really yellow from my hard water, but the sweat stains come out too.

    Pert Plus Shampoo

    I used to get baby spit up stains out of my sons clothes using Pert Plus shampoo. It never seemed to hurt the clothes.

    I don't know if it will get your stains out but it is worth a try maybe?

    apply baking soda and water in a paste and scrub the stain. Then I would try washing as normal
