How to Remove Armpit Stains
Save the Shirt! - Armpit Stains
Living with a husband and 3 teenage boys....enough said. Armpit stains in undershirts have got to be one of the most challenging stains to remove. Sometimes bleach just doesn't cut it. White undershirts get a lot of action around my house, so I had to find a solution that really works!
So, for the laundry goddess who wants to tackle the ever persistent pit stains, this is for you!
This is a very simple process for **white t-shirts only**
What you need:
1 teaspoon of Dawn dish soap
3-4 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide
2 tablespoons of baking soda
What to Do:
- Lay the shirt on a flat surface.
- Mix together the peroxide, soap, and baking soda.
- Apply mixture to the pit areas and rub/scrub well. Sometimes using a toothbrush can help!
- Let the shirts soak for about an hour, wash normally, and be amazed!
Don't put the shirt in the dryer until the stain is gone.
For preventing future pit stains, try changing the soap you bathe with. We changed to olive oil soaps and it helped tremendously!
