When temperatures get this hot, you can’t help but sweat! While your deodorant may keep you smelling fresh, it can react with that sweat and cause stains on your favorite clothes. We can help! Try these simple tips to get rid of the stains

Use white vinegar.

Vinegar is a great stain remover and also neutralizes smells. Try mixing 1 cup of white vinegar with two cups of warm water and soak the garment in the solution for at least an hour. Rinse well and wash as usual.

Try hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide can be as powerful as bleach but won’t harm your colorful shirts. You can create a powerful stain fighting paste with a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, one tablespoon of salt and half a cup of baking soda. Use a small brush to rub the paste into the stain and let it rest for at least an hour. Wash it in hot water.

Add dish soap.

Dawn dish soap is great for cleaning all kinds of stains. If you have a tricky sweat stain, try adding Dawn dish soap to the mix. Create a paste of 1 part Dawn dish soap and 2 parts hydrogen peroxide. Let the stain soak in the mixture for several hours before scrubbing it into the fabric. You could add baking soda to this mixture to create a thicker paste and also help fight smells.

Thanks for these great tips.
I own 14 pieces of summer linen, which at bought 20 years ago at a steep discount. I take care of it, washing it by hand, and using caution to keep it nice. My white/colors linen skirts get sweat stains on the back. Those skirts are are running $50-$70 each these days. They are solid colors, will always be in, resort wear!
They are cut on the bias, which fits me better.
So Calif gets HOT, like AZ.
Great tips to add to my arsenal of fabric stain solutions.
Thank you,
