Removing sweat and deodorant stains from fabric

Cotton shirts seem to be particularly susceptible to getting a yellow discolouring under the arms. This can be avoided if you make a paste out of bicarb soda and water, spread it over the stain and leave for an hour or two. This should remove the stain, unless it has been there for a long time and ironed into place. Another trick is to spray under the arms of cotton shirts with distilled white vinegar each time the shirt goes in to the wash. 

Recipe

  • Bicarb soda
  • Distilled white vinegar 
  • Water
