How To Get Rid Of Sweat Stains With Ingredients From Your Kitchen Pantry
With only a bit of vinegar from the pantry and some cold water, your can help get sweat stains out of the armpits of your shirts, making them look good as new.
For a fresh sweat stain, combine 1 part vinegar with 4 parts water, pouring the mixture over the stain(s) and allowing it to sit for a few minutes, then washing it afterward.
If pouring the vinegar solution directly onto your laundry seems too messy, mix a larger solution and soak your items directly in it for up to 30 minutes.
For more difficult stains, rub a paste of 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of both salt and hydrogen peroxide into the stains, allowing it to set for 20 minutes.
After wiping off the paste, wash your clothes and check to see if the stains are gone. If not, allow them to air dry and repeat the process.
If this doesn’t work, try using lemons. Combine equal amounts of lemon juice with water and soak the stain for 30 minutes.
Adding salt to the mixture and rubbing it against the clothes can also help. Allow the clothes to dry in the sun for at least an hour before washing.
You can also mix 1/4 of water with 4 tablespoons of baking soda and scrub it in. Let it sit for an hour, spritz it with white vinegar, scrub it again, and rinse.
