  • Just read through some of the comments as I would like to know – never knew eucalyptus oil was a thing to get stains out but I will keep this in mind.

  • Alot of useful tips to take on board!

  • Cool! Really interesting comments read on this! Good topic as well!

  • this is a hard one – if you can be bothered, bicarb and lemon juice in a paste leave for a while and wash. Also, can do napisan, preen and a long wash… this can work too

  • There’s a new napisan with reviews on here. Personally if its your husband’s work shirts, I think burning them is the only way. If they’ve been ironed or through the dryer the stain has been sealed in. You can get pads for the underarm area of workshirts from woolies. Clinical protection deodorant works too but I worry about the chemicals in this and the impact long term

  • A paste of Napisan; rub in and then soak overnight. Good Luck!

  • soaking overnight is something like napisan should help

  • Napisan paste will work if the stains are not coming out with the wash.

  • proper preparation by using deoderant which prevents heavy sweat stains

  • there are some good comments here

  • You should be able to get it out if you clean it rightaway in the washing machine… unless you left it for too long

  • Vanish made into a paste takes care of the smell & discoloration.

  • Some good advice there below.

  • A pre wash soak and scrub should help :)

  • Pre wash spray and then soak.
