How can I get deoderant stains out of my shirts?

The stains are thick with residual deoderant and smell like spring rain and BO. They start out yellow but the longer I own the shirt the darker they get until I just have to throw it out. Any ideas?

  • try oxi clean, or vinegar for the odor. The yellowing is usually from built up body oil and sweat. Try baking soda too, you can make a paste with a little bit of water and scrub the spots together

  • 1) Brush the excess stain off the surface of the fabric.
    2) Rinse in cold water to dilute the stain.
    3) Wash in warm water with 1 use of Tide try Tide with Febreze Freshness
    4) If stain remains, repeat steps before drying.
