If you are unlucky and sometimes get deodorant stains on your shirts, there are several techniques to help remove them.

How to remove deodorant stains

Important: always test a small hidden area first.

A proven method of removing deodorant stains is by soaking the stained area in a mixture of vinegar and water. Prepare a mixture of equal amounts of vinegar and warm water. Soak the stained areas in the solution for several hours, and then wash as usual. Try gently rubbing the effected area with a small amount of ammonia on a cloth and then wash as normal. For annoying yellow deodorant stains, mix a little baking soda with water before spreading over the stained area. Allow the paste to dry, and then wash. 

Give severe deodorant stains a scrub before washing; you may need to work your chosen stain removal treatment into the fabric with a nail brush. If you regularly have problems with stains, consider treating your clothes every now and again even before the marks become visible for continuous maintenance. 

Of course, the best way to avoid deodorant stains is choosing a product that doesn't stain in the first place! Try Garnier deodorants’ fantastic range of anti-mark and stain deodorants which are designed to protect white, coloured and black clothing from ugly stains.
