How to Remove Sweat Stains from Your Clothes
I used to avoid buying white tops because a did not know how to remove sweat stains from the
armpits. If you're like me, those yellowing sweat stains on your favorite white top can be annoying.
Your clothes certainly take a beating and some underarm stains are extremely difficult
to remove. Here are some great tips on how to remove sweat stains that will have your clothes looking great in no time.
Use liquid laundry detergent containing either oxygenated ingredients or ones that
remove most protein-based stains and apply this directly onto the sweat stains. Rub
gently with your fingers to cover the entire stain and then let this soak into the material
for about half an hour. Wash as you normally do. An inexpensive shampoo also works the same
way as the laundry detergent, to remove sweat stains.
On colored garments, use a solution of two cups of water and four tablespoons of white vinegar.
Soak your stained fabric in this for half an hour and then wash using cool water.
A great way to remove sweat stains from white articles of clothing is hydrogen peroxide.
Because hydrogen peroxide breaks down the residue in sweat stains, this helps to keep your clothing
from turning dark under the arms over time. Soak your top, or the stain, in a mixture of half water
and half hydrogen peroxide for half an hour. Wash in cool water and air dry. If the stain is still
visible, increase the hydrogen peroxide in the water, soak for another thirty minutes and then wash in
This is how to remove sweat stains using the sun and some liquid laundry detergent. Soak your
top in warm water and then remove. Pour liquid laundry detergent on the sweat stained areas. Place
the garment outside in the sun but be sure to keep the stained area wet by spraying it with water.
After three or four hours, laundry in cool water and then air-dry. Repeat if necessary.
Baking soda mixed with water to form a paste and then applied to the sweat stains works great.
Leave this on for approximately twenty minutes and then launder as usual. You can also wash clothing
in a mixture of laundry detergent and a cup of baking soda to remove stale, stubborn perspiration odor.
