How to Get Yellow Stains Out of White Shirts

 

This is one of the most common problems that women face!  The easiest solution is never let them happen in the first place (one of the reasons we created Nudy Patooty undershirts!).

 

What causes yellow sweat stains?

Perspiration is mostly water, but the small percentage of other things - ammonia, sodium chloride, urea and lactic acid - are what cause the stains.

What causes underarm odour?

Body odour is created when bacteria reacts with moisture.  Bacteria grows quickly in the presence of perspiration, especially if the pH balance of the skin is off or if moisture remains on the skin for a prolonged period.  Shaving also contributes to bacteria growth because it removes hair which is meant to wick perspiration away from the surface of the skin.

Why don't antiperspirants stop sweat completely?

Antiperspirants do not prevent perspiration they simply reduce the amount you perspire (the FDA requires antiperspirants reduce perspiration by 20% to meet standard guidelines and 30% to be considered extra-effective.

Do antiperspirants cause stains on my clothing?

Yes.  They use aluminum based compounds that cause perspiration ducts to swell and block moisture from releasing.  However, these ingredients bond with perspiration and when they do escape they create stains.
