I have yellow underarm stains on my work shirts and can’t get rid of them, they are expensive shirts ($70 each) so can’t just replace them either :(

  • My son has the same problem with his school shirts. He is in high school so it is totally embarrassing. What I did was purchase a under shirt (white) from ‘Armour’ online it helps to absorb sweat. I also soak his school shirt in Napisan after I have sprayed it with Preen. Most of the stains come out.


  • Don’t use White King, that’s a bleach and will destroy the material. Usually a paste of Napisan and water applied and left for a while then wash works. It might take a couple of goes, but generally works


  • Napisan is good and give them a soak first,you can also buy deodrant to stop the stains,Rexona has one!


  • yeah i was going to say try soaking them. white king is great too.


  • I use stain remover or soak them in napisan or similar. You can make a paste of bicarb soda as well and rub into them
