House Hacks: Removing Underarm Stains

December 15, 2015  |  

Nothing ruins beautiful blouses and dresses like unsightly underarm stains. Thankfully, those icky sweat blots don’t have to ruin your garments permanently. There are multiple ways to go about removing these awful sweat blots but this week, we’ll highlight two.

Method I:

According to Picklee, you can nip these stains in the bud by mixing one-part dishwashing with two parts hydrogen peroxide. For extra stubborn stains, you should add baking soda to the mix. Apply the solution to the stain and allow it to sit for an hour. You should then wash the garment as you usually would.

Method II:

You can remove arm pit stains from white shirts by first soaking the piece in a bowl filled with 1 cup of vinegar and two cups of warm water. While the garment is soaking—Pop Sugar recommends 20 minutes—you should combine one-half cup of baking soda, one tablespoon of salt and one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, forming a paste-like solution. After removing the garment, squeeze out the excess liquid. Once the shirt is damp, apply the solution to the stains, allow it sit for another 20 minutes and then wash it with the rest of your white clothing as you normally would.
