Do antiperspirants cause yellow stains on underarms of mens white shirts? if so, what is the best kind of deodorant to use?

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.
