Remove Deodorant Stains

Ever noticed how visible underarm deodorant on white shirts? The shirt is usually left with a yellow unsightly stains. While black shirts did not show signs of spots, the spots are usually present as well. It is therefore important to make sure you have removed deodorant stains from all your shirts when washing them. Left unmarked, these spots can trap bacteria cause odor, discoloration and stiffness of the fabric.Deodorants do to work on the smell that comes as a result of sweating and perspiring. Some deodorant has a very strong smell so that they end up being more irritating than the sweat itself.
The antiperspirant contained in the deodorant is what is responsible for stopping the sweat glands from performing their function.The sweat glands are intended to produce sweat, which in turn cools down your body as the sweat evaporates
The ingredients that make your sweat glands do not produce sweat are the same ones who are responsible to stain your clothing. Aluminum salts (aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum chloride and aluminum zirconium) placed in deodorants reduce sweat production. These salts combine with sweat to form a gel that blocks the tubes that lead to the sweat glands. This prevents sweat to come to the surface for a while.
When there is excess moisture or when you work out, the antiperspirant take off, and your body will start sweating again. The minerals in your sweat mixed with the chemicals in the antiperspirant, and the mixture will stick in the fibers of your clothes. This mixture results in the spots you see on your blouse, t-shirts or even undergarments.
