I get pit stains very easily and quickly in all white and light colored shirts...anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution to stop them from occurring or a way to get them out?

Ganymede80 saidBuy a deodorant that doesn't have aluminum chlorohydrate in it.
I'm a bit of a hippy and use as many organic and natural products as possible.
Here are two to try:
Celticmusl saidDude, I tried these and they did nothing for me. I even used the deodorant crystal with no effect. Smelling myself after a few intense office meetings made me switch to the much harder stuff, aluminum zirconium....even though anything with aluminum is supposed to cause Alzheimer's. At least I will make for a pleasant smelling resident in an assisted living home.
bucksube saidVinegar is supposed to be effective in removing perspiration stains. Avoid bleach, that supposed makes it worse.
I discovered that having somebody suck and lick your armpits will prevent stains. Use with caution, it prevents shirt stains, but may cause staining elsewhere.
theantijock saidWhen I worked in buttondown shirts I used undershirts to avoid this problem. I stopped using deodorants and anti-perspirants when they becamed rumored to cause Alzheimer's and even when that might have been debunked, I figured why stuff my pores with all those chemicals. Anti-perspirants seem particularly crazy to me as sweating is how the body cools itself so why mess with that process?
