You can use these as underarm shields. The pantyliner can be cut to fit. They come in black and white.

I heard this tip on the radio. This would be great for fabrics that stain, or are not washable.

When ironing a white shirt, sprinkle baby powder under the arms before ironing. This will keep sweat from seeping through the shirt, and avoid stains.

This is a guide about deodorant that won't stain clothing. Unfortunately sometimes the deodorant we use can stain our clothing.

I am looking to prevent underarm stains on all my new white shirts. I've seen a bunch of posts for getting them out. Does anyone know how to prevent them? Thanks a million.

I think deoderant & then powder helps a lot.

I wear deoderant all the time so that isn't the problem -- it's from sweat- which I actually don't sweat a lot except when working out.

Tectron spray for clothing (under arm area).

It's a water repellent for synthetic and natural fibers.

I saw that someone had asked about preventing underarm stains and I just happened to have received Joey Green's Cleaning Magic in the mail.

"To prevent underarm stains on clothes, lather up a bar of Fels-Naptha Soap and rub the lather into underarms of new clothes before laundering them for the first time. Launder with cool water and your regular detergent."

I have no idea if this works.

Fels-Naptha will remove underarm stains. If the stain is old it may take a couple washes. Use warm water or hot if fabric will allow. (05/15/2010)
