I have had a problem with yellow stains beneath the armpits on t-shirts,
etc. I have assumed that they were from using stick deodorant.
How can this be prevented? Is there any way to get rid of these stains on
I don't know about preventing it, but here is a site that has a "stain
removal wizard" that covers about everything - first item is antiperspirant.
If the shirts are white, there is a product called "Yellow Out"
similar to "Iron Out", that I've had good luck with.
As far as prevention, I don't know of anything.... I just have my
hubby wear colored shirts.
underarm deodorents are basicall ammonium chloride a astringent, and perfume
best underarm deodorant is sodium bicabonate ( baking soada0--place
about 1/4 a pea amount-
it neutralizes the fatty acids form by bacteria which cause underarm odor
the yelow stain i suspect is a mixture of oils/fats fromns skinor the
i would use automatic dishwaster detergent --a potent materail for
some have enzymes it it to help remove proteins like egg

Well, John, I have an idea for preventing it, but I doubt
that you will find it appealing.
When I was in the Army I would get the big yellow stains
on my shirts, too. What I did was buy the thinnest panty
liners that I could get and use them in the armpits of
my shirts. The sweat, etc., wouldn't make it to the shirt.
Now, unless you're in an accident and taken to the hospital,
no one should ever know you're wearing panty liners in your
shirt! But you'll have to find someone to buy them for you.
