Antiperspirants and deodorants can often leave those white stains so uncomfortable on our clothes.
There are some simple tricks that can be great allies to get rid of those stains. See below some of them.
1 – Salt
Wet the part of the fabric that is stained and spread some salt over it. Let it act for 8 to 12 hours. Then wet it again and add more salt. Rub the fabric slightly and put the piece in the washing machine.
2 – Dishwashing detergent
Place some of the detergents on the stain, rub lightly and let it act for 30 minutes. Then, rinse the clothes.
3 – Lemon juice
Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice directly on the stain. Let it act for 5 to 10 minutes. Then wash the garment manually with warm water.
4 – Mixture of oxygenated water, sodium bicarbonate, and dishwashing detergent
Use the following mixture: 4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide, 1 teaspoon of dishwashing detergent, and 2 tablespoons of sodium bicarbonate. Place the mixture on the stain and let it act for a few hours. Then wash the clothes.

5 – Vinegar
Apply vinegar over the stain and let it act during the night. In the morning, wash the piece as usual. Vinegar can be applied to colored clothes, as well as wool and other natural fabrics, but it’s good to avoid the application of white clothes because it can leave them yellowish.
6 – Vodka
Put some vodka on the stain and wait a few minutes. If you prefer, you can leave the vodka on the fabric for longer, but not more than an hour. Finish by washing the garment.
7 – Synthetic stockings
Do you know those whitish spots that get when you finish wearing the deodorant and put on some clothes? Because they are easily removed with the use of a synthetic fabric stocking (pantyhose or social). Just rub it lightly on the clothes and the stain will disappear.
