In summer  we all tend to sweat more and therefore we often find  sweat stains on our clothes, mainly  concentrated in the armpit area  .

The problem is greater if the  shirts are dyed  as these stains may be more difficult to remove without risking  the garments fading.

But don’t despair! Today we will see together how to remove sweat stains from colored shirts  without the risk of them fading!

What will you discover?


First, we recommend using  baking soda,  a pantry ingredient    known  for its cleaning properties   and   mild abrasive action , effectively removing sweat stains without damaging fabric.  

So all you have to do is  add 2 tablespoons of baking soda  to a bowl of cold water and then  immerse the colored shirts with sweat stains in the resulting mixture.

 Leave it   on for about 10 minutes and then gently scrub the affected area with an old toothbrush or brush. Finally, rinse and continue with the usual wash,  preferably with Marseille soap.

Alternatively, you can   mix the baking soda with water until you have a mixture that you can massage directly onto the sweat stain.  Your shirts will be like new!


In addition to baking soda, there is another  pantry ingredient  that can help with sweat stains: vinegar   In fact, not only does it succeed in removing stains and  eliminating the smell of sweat  , but it is also a godsend  for reviving faded colored garments!

To try it, you need to  pour a glass of white vinegar  into a bowl of cold water and   soak the colored shirt for about an hour.  Next, rub the stain with a brush, especially in the  armpit area  , rinse and continue with your  usual wash.

If you want quicker relief, you can also dab a   cloth soaked in water and vinegar  directly on the stain, leave it to act for a while and then  immerse the item of clothing in cold water for about half an hour.  The color  of your shirts will be more vibrant than ever!
