Prevent Yellow Armpit Stains

June 16th, 2015 Comments off

It is starting to warm up in New York and we know what that means – humidity and sweat!
Recently we received a question from one of our clients and he asked how to get rid of armpit stains.  After some research, we wrote a quick summary on preventing and zapping away the yellow annoyance.


Contrary to popular beliefs, it’s not your sweat itself that causes yellow stains. Most experts agree that aluminum ingredient used in antiperspirants in combination with sweat cause the yellow stains.  So, it is important to choose a deodorant that does not contain aluminum.  From our research, following brands do not contain aluminum and they are all under $5.

a. Arm and Hammer Natural

b. Tom’s of Maine Original Care Natural

c. Old Spice High Endurance


Top method to ridding armpit stains is a combination of hydrogen peroxide, water and baking soda.

Please do not use bleach or hot water. Bleach will actually darken the stains because it reacts with the proteins in sweat and the hot water or heat from the dryer will set the stains.

Video below uses OxiClean, which is basically hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and water.

If you don’t have hydrogen peroxide and baking soda in your kitchen, it is probably easier to purchase OxiClean.
