I had a special marathon T-shirt that I needed to remove perspiration stains from and found this one worked for me! It had already been laundered, but the stains were still on it.
Instead, I added two parts of hydrogen peroxide with one part of dish soap and painted it onto the dry underarms. I left it for 2 hours and the stain really lightened up! This photo was even before I washed it again!
I also heard (but can't vouch for since I didn't try it) 2 aspirins in a 1/2 cup of warm water, soaked for 2-3 hours is supposed to work as well!

What will get sweat stains off of white shirts and t-shirts. My partner's clothes always stain under the arms. We have tried using different deodorants, but they still appear. I have tried things like Vanish, etc. what works the best so far is Shout spray and Ace bleach, but they are still visible. Any help will be appreciated.

After washing with whatever you can use to help reduce the stain, hang outside on a sunny day. Alot of times the sun will draw stains out of clothes. Its worth a try! Good Luck!
Firstly, try using Oxy-Clean in a sink of warm water and soaking the stained clothes for about 20 minutes. That should help.
What can I use to get rid of yellow underarm stains on white t-shirts?

You can soak them in hot water with a good amount of Cascade added to the water. You could also use hairspray. The alcohol in the hairspray will break down the protiens. I used to use it on my white blouses years ago.

How do I take starch like stuff from underarms of t-shirts? It is most likely from deodorant and sweat?
How do you remove yellow underarm stains on white tee shirts?
I have a white t-shirt with sweat stains under the arms. No amount of soaking or washing seems to fix the problem. The shirt is still in good condition so I would really appreciate any advice.
