Removing deodorant stains

Sometimes, after a while, deodorant might leave stains on our clothes. If these stains are not treated probably in timely manner they might set in, making the stains difficult to clean.

Stains remover is the answer to remove most stains but for this time, I have opted for more eco-friendly and budget friendly solution by using salt.

What you need to do:

1. Wet the stains.
2. Sprinkle salt on the stains.
3. Let it sit for hours or perhaps overnight.
4. Prior to washing, wet the stains and scrub a bit of salt.
5. Wash as normal.

Note: It would be good if the stained item can be dried in the sun.

This is the after photo. The stains did come off a bit but not totally. Perhaps the stains had set in for a long time already as this is a thrifted top. Well, at least I gave salt a try and it did not ruin the top. Zero risk.

Do share with me if you have any tips on alternative ways to remove deodorant stains.
