Removing Sweat, Perspiration and Deodorant Stains

Man jogging on pathway.

Don't sweat the small stuff!

Even though we really don't like those embarrassing antiperspirants stains, sweating happens for a reason. You may think we perspire as our bodies are too hot, in reality it's our bodies way of keeping us cool.

Perspiration that happens in the armpit area, will have a yellowish color and contains fatty acids and proteins.

Most of us; both men and women, have trouble with underarm perspiration. Men may also get perspiration between the shoulder blades, groin area, hands and feet. All of these things can result in stains on your clothing.

Here is something you can try to remove deodorant stains:

Hydrogen Peroxide

I keep bottles of hydrogen peroxide on my shelves. It works great for some many things. It's always a good idea to do a spot check in an inconspicuous spot first.

After you've done the spot check, apply straight hydrogen peroxide on the stained area and rub it in. Allow this to sit on the stain for 30 minutes or so.

Hydrogen peroxide will convert to water when exposed to sunlight so cover the area with a piece of plastic wrap and then cover that with a towel to keep the light out. Don't dilute the hydrogen peroxide and don't mix it with any other type of cleaner.

After 30 minutes, check to see the progress, depending on the stain you may have to do this step once again before washing as you normally would.

Before you put the article of clothing in the dryer, check it and make sure the stain is gone.

For sweat and perspiration stains, try this:

Ammonia and Water

Mix a half-cup of water with a half-cup of household ammonia and put on the stain. Then launder according to clothing manufacturer’s instruction.

There are a number of common household products which are effective in treating and removing these stains. Check to see if you have one or all of them on your pantry shelves to remove sweat or perspiration stains!

Got A Grass Stain?

Are you looking for ways to get grass stains out of clothing?

Grass stains happen! What do you do? When your kids are playing in the yard or you’re on your knees doing yard work, it can be quite common to get grass stains on the knees of our pants.

The problem with grass stains is they can be mixed with more than just grass. There may be some mud and other things in the mix but when you need to get the stain out, concentrate on the grass part of the stain first.

Simple Cleaning Solution

This is a non-toxic way to clean the grass stain.
• Go to your local health food store or pharmacy and purchase a supplemental, digestive enzyme in powder or pill form.
• Use 1 teaspoon of the powder and add a little water to make a paste.
• Apply the paste to the grass stain, covering the entire area and let sit for one hour.
• Wash as you normally would but don’t put it in the dryer yet. Let it air dry to make sure the stain is gone.

Dry Cleaning Solvent

Test in an inconspicuous spot first then follow the directions provided by the manufacturer.

Cleaning with Dishwashing Detergent

Is dish washing detergent only for cleaning dishes? What about automatic dish washing detergent? Both these types of detergents can be used for other kinds of cleaning throughout your home.

One of your household items that can be cleaned with dish washing detergent is your refrigerator (inside and out).

Automatic dish washing detergent can be used to clean tough stains.

For more uses using dishwashing detergent, come see us at Mrs. Clean.

How to Clean with Vinegar

Not only is vinegar used in cooking for tenderize meats and bringing out the flavor of some foods, vinegar is also used to clean around the house.

Vinegar is quite effective for killing household germs, bacteria, and killing most molds due to its acidic levels.

Vinegar is also a "green product", meaning it is environmentally friendly.

For cleaning purposes you want to use white vinegar, who knows... you may already have this in your cupboards.

Some uses for cleaning with vinegar are:
Cleaning your garbage disposal
Cleaning the top of your refrigerator
Cleaning everyday glassware that has turned cloudy

We have more helpful tips for cleaning with vinegar at Mrs. Clean. Stop by and check them out.
