How do I get yellow deoderant stains out of my dressy shirts?

I have always had the problem of sweating under my arms. Middle and high school were always the worst years of my life. Today I still have that problem, even sweating in between my legs and my back sometimes. I have learned to live with it but do any of you have a good remedy to get the yellow out of the white shirts. Thanks

  • I read that putting salt water and lemon juice on a sweat stain will remove it.

  • I used lemon juice and it worked for me I poured lemon juice on the stain let it sit over night and then washed and it was perfect.

  • I have tried everything and never been able to get them out once they are there. Oxyclean lightened them a little but not all the way. My son finally got a deoderant by perscription that helped him solve the problem. They make them for women too.

  • I hear tide sport is good for stubborn stains esp paired with oxyclean.

  • I soak mine in oxyclean right after I wear them and then wash but honestly it doesn't get them out completely. I use secret clinical (they sell at wal mart etc) and it helps

  • I read somewhere that if you treat a new white tee with lemon juice BEFORE wearing it helps
