I've tried many DIY concoctions to remove those pesky armpit stains and a lot of them do work, BUT a lot of them are also so potent to the point where they fade even the color of the shirt. For whites, obviously it's perfectly okay but for colored, the faded area, in my opinion, looks just as bad as the stain itself.
I recently came across this version of the mixture that I'd never heard of before and decided to give it a go.
Check out the results!
What You'll Need:
- 2 tablespoons Hydrogen Peroxide
- 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap (OR laundry detergent specially for colored clothing)
- Optional: baking soda
- old toothbrush (obviously not the same one you use for your teeth hehe)
-Mix all the ingredients together until it becomes bubbly.
-Soak armpit area with solution.
-Scrub are using toothbrush.
-Let sit for about an hour.
-Wash in the laundry as you normally would.
Verdict. I used laundry detergent instead of the dish soap, which the original recipe calls for, and as you can see the results are pretty awesome. I was so sick of having to throw away old shirts because of those nasty looking stains.
Hope this works for you too!
