How to avoid deodorant stains on your clothes?
It often happens: you choose an outfit, like yourself in the mirror, spray with a deodorant and unpleasant white spots"irradiate" under your arms. When it comes to a everyday blouse, you can easily change it or throw something on to hide them. But if it is an elegant dress for a special occasion and you don’t have a spare plan? You can stop repeating this mistake using some basic rules.
• Try to keep your underarm area hairless. It is not only more hygienic and attractive, but also less quantity of deodorant will stick to your skin, and hence to your clothes.
• Wipe your skin dry before applying a deodorant, it is best - before dressing your main clothes. If you use a deodorant-spray, keep the bottle 15-20 cm away from your skin. Thus, most of the causing stains powder particles will be scattered in the air, and the formula will not stratify.
• If you use a roll-on or a stick deodorant, apply a very thin layer of it on your skin. One-two movement are enough for the active ingredients in its formula to act effectively.
• Wait at least 30 seconds before you put on your shirt or dress. This is especially true when using roll-on formulas that are more wet. It is best to have a T-shirt or a bodysuit underneath that will take the staining.
• Roll up the lower end of your cloth before threading it through your head. Thus, when you descent the garment, any deodorant stains will remain on the inside and won’t be visible.
• Take your cloth away from your armpits, in case that you scent after you’ve put it on. Do not hold your arms too high, because when you drop them, they will pinch your cloth, leaving telltale stains.
• Select your deodorant formulas properly. It is strongly recommended the deo-spray to provide 48-hour protection, to be talc free and on its package to be explicitly mentioned, that it doesn’t leave stains and white marks.
• It is good to look for a transparent formula when selecting a roll-on or a stick. If there is an opportunity, test the product on your hand - even if the liquid is seemingly white, it should become unvisible when is applied.
What to do if the damage is already inflicted?
Instead of panicking, clean the place with a wet cloth using clapping movements (rubbing can only worsen the situation). If you are not at home, look for the nearest toilet and clean the area with hot water and your ... pantyhose. Yes exactly, you have read correctly - nylon fibers excellently remove spots.
