The best thing you can do is to change your deodorant as this one is
cleanrly reacting poorly with your bodily secretions. Generally sticks and
roll-ons are better than sprays.
Here's what you need to treat your current stain:
1.. Glycerin and Water (1 part Glycerin to 4 parts Water)
2.. Ammonia (20% solution)
3.. Acetic Acid (25% solution) white vinegar may substitute
4.. Hydrogen Peroxide
and here's what you do:
Add the first treatment with a dropper or spoon and tamp well into the
stain. Flush away using a spray as close as possible with absorbent cloths
underneath and then dry by holding more absorbent cloths on the stained
area. Add the ammonia using the same method then tamp, flush and dry once
more. Before adding the acid solution make sure you have flushed away the
ammonia otherwise one will neutralise the other. Add the acid and repeat the
procedures for the ammonia.
Finally if any staining remains add hydrogen peroxide and wait for a
reaction. Wash the garment in the normal way.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply.
I currently use a roll-on. Part of the problem is that when the deodorant

I guess this can be avoided by waiting until the deodorant is dry, but this
is only part of the problem. After a long day, staining still occurs under
the shirt arms.
