I also use a Deodorant Crystal it works and doesn't stain. It is a little more exp. but lasts a long time, over a year. It also does not include aluminums which is suppose to be harmful.

Aluminum is the active ingredient in most anti-perspirants and is responsible for the stains. If you switch to a strictly deodorant product you won't have the same problem. Usually the only aluminum-free products out there are of the all-natural variety; some of them don't work well and can have scents that are worse than BO, but I really Tom's of Maine deodorant stick in the Lemongrass scent.


No stains or stinkiness so far!

Well I think that the best result for not getting those nasty yellow marks on shirts is LEMON! Use lemon after you shower for about a week. It will stop the yellow marks and you wont stink. Mexican people used it. I used to stain my white shirts, and my friend told me about the lemon. I though she was just kidding, but I tried it and it worked. After a week, you can start using your deodorant. Hope this works for you :)

I'm looking for a deodorant that is not expensive or homemade that kills odors and leaves less yellowish stains on blouses and shirts.

Thank you,

I am not sure if you can get this product where you live, but here in the UK I have found the best deodorant I have ever used is 'Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-Perspirant Deodorant roll on. I give it 10/10 and it saw me through two years of hot flashes (My underarms were the only place that was dry then!) I recommend this to everybody. I hope you can get it where you are. Best wishes to you. (05/16/2005)

Mitchum, clear gel, anti-perspirant and deodorant works well for me. (05/16/2005)

My husband used to get bad deodorant stains on his shirts and undershirts. I asked him to wait 5 minutes to let it dry before putting them on, and no stains.


To remove stains on washable shirts and blouses, soak overnight (or longer) in a solution of 1 cup powdered dishwasher detergent and 1 gallon lukewarm water mixed well. Then wash as usual. This gets out most stains. (05/16/2005)

Maybe just changing your brand of deodorant will do it. Not all will stain clothes. (05/16/2005)

Suave roll-on is what I use and I love it, I've never noticed any staining whatsoever. It's not expensive either. (05/16/2005)

Crystal Stick Body deoeorant is great. It is 100% Natural Mineral Salts. Hypoallergenic, eliminates odor, last over one year. It is for men and women. Unscented, non-staining and can be used on underarms or feet. It is the only one I use now after trying dozens in the past.


Buy it at Rite Aide drug stores or possibly the internet. Check it out. (05/16/2005)

I really like Dove deodorant. It smells great with many different scents. It works great. I've never had any problem with under arm stains.
GOD Bless. (05/16/2005)

Arrid Extra Dry antiperspirant Deodorant CREAM. It comes in a short round white jar and it advertises that it will not stain. I tried and it and it decreased the amount of new stains, but didn't eliminate them all together. Other friends swear by it though. Got it at Wegman's. (04/24/2006)

Dermalogica's deodorant does not build up and does not stain. It is not an antiperspirant - but that's a small price to pay compared to ruining clothing with other brands like Mitchum or other antiperspirant formulas. The crystal is good too but eventually was too strong for the skin and caused irritation and a rash after a few months. (06/28/2006)

Gillete seems to work best for men. (12/25/2006)

Guys, shave your armpits!

I've had the same problem happen with many of my tan and brown shirts staining to orange under the arms. I'll certainly be trying the recommendations on this page.

One thing I do, as a guy, which helps is to shave my underarm hair. Anti-persperants only work if they have direct contact with the skin. Hair just gets in the way. By doing so, I'm able to apply less than I would otherwise. (04/02/2007)
