Athlete and Coaches stains are the WORST and like the creator of the post ONE GOOD THING I found my answer on how to fix this problem STUBBORN as it is.
Here is what she did and I now do it too!
“The BEFORE and AFTER’s are QUITE amazing…….especially considering I had tried everything I could possibly think of to get them white again.
The online article describes the stain remover mixture as consisting of one part Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed with two parts HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (which of course I have OODLES of for making my Miracle Cleaner).
The author then goes on to say “you pour the mixture directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like MAGIC.”
I knew the stains on my boys t-shirts were uber STUBBORN (since even pouring straight bleach on them hadn’t worked previously)…so I used the above “recipe” PLUS added some baking soda (of course!) for the extra scrubbing element…and I used a small laundry brush to work the whole concoction into the stain for a few minutes. After that I walked away and let the whole thing sit there for an hour or so and then laundered as usual.”
Just What is Causing The Horrible Stains??
“It can sometimes be confusing as to whether to know if the stain under the arm pit is from perspiration or deodorant/antiperspirant. If the stain is yellow or green in color and has a crunchy or crispy texture, it’s due to perspiration. If the stain, however, is white or clear with a greasy texture, it’s due to the antiperspirant and should be treated as a grease stain with the appropriate solvent”.
