Pit Stains Are The Pits: Top Ways To Prevent And Remove Armpit Stains

Top Ways To Prevent And Remove Armpit Stains By Barbies Beauty Bits

Pit stains stink literally.  Bad enough trying to find a deodorant that actually works, but add that to pit stains too; this can become really frustrating, so what can you do to prevent and remove armpit stains?

A Few Swipes A Day Keeps The BO Away.
But Your Deodorant Can Stain Your Shirt
As with anything in life, if you can figure out the why, you can usually find a quick solution (anything that can make life less stressful). So here we go, one stinky culprit to pit stains on a shirt is your deodorant!!! What?  Yes, an ugly pit stain happens from the aluminum in your deodorant. These compounds cling to your shirt. Add the mixture of sweat to that, and yellowing can occur.

Now you can try an aluminum-free deodorant, and I've tried plenty, but unfortunately, even after the detox time, they do not always work. So which is worse? The risk of staining your shirt or embarrassing sweat stains from a deodorant that did not work?

The bottom line, even the cleanest of people, can develop armpit stains in their shirts, so when regular washing does not work, why not try some of these tricks from grandma and some new advanced options.

Safeguards To Help Prevent Pit Stains
  • Allow your deodorant to dry before putting on your shirt completely. But not with a hair dryer!!!
  • Don’t overdo it. It is essential to pay attention to how you apply it. Applying too much deodorant will just sit on the surface of your skin and eventually rub off on to your clothing.  
  • Dress The Part. Certain materials do not breathe, like silk. Your best option is cotton.
  • Keep yourself properly groomed. Hair acts as a protector, including your armpits, but it traps excess moisture, so shave those pesky hairs! This goes for men too!
How Botox Can Help With Sweating By Barbies Beauty Bits

Medical Treatments To Prevent Excessive Sweating

  • Embrace A Little Botox. Not many people know about Botox many uses other than erasing away wrinkles. People hear “Botox” and think of younger-looking skin, but it does so much more than that. Using Botox under your arms will block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat.
  • Speak To The Doctor. If you go to the doctor and tell them the issues you’re dealing with, you can get a prescription for strong antiperspirants that are clinical strength. These will help you to dry out your underarms, and you can use it before you get dressed.
  • Think About Sweat Pads. Avoiding pit stains on tailored clothing is more challenging, but with sweat guards or pads, you can make sure that you don't have any blooming stains under your arms.
