Sweat stains need not trouble you Posted on June 26, 2017 under Blog. | no comments.
Sweat stains are a part of daily life in Southwest Florida. The heat combined with the humidity cause the body temperatures to rise and our body perspires to try to cool us off. From this heat and humidity, it is inevitable that the underarm of shirts will ultimately have perspiration stains followed by unwelcoming odors to accompany it. There are fewer things that cause more annoyance or embarrassment than these stains and odors. Since the heat and humidity will always be a constant, leave it to Champion Cleaners to guide you.
Tips and Tricks
Yellow sweat stains occur when the sweat patches are left to dry for a period of time. The build-up of antiperspirant or deodorant products add to the problem. Over time, the aluminum in the product and salt in your perspiration combines to form a yellow sweat stain. The stains are difficult to remove with normal washing.
The best and cheapest way to combat sweat stains is to try and stop them from occurring in the first place.
- Wear loose clothing made of natural fibers like cotton, linen and wool allowing your sweat to evaporate more easily.
- Make sure your antiperspirant deodorant is dry before dressing or use a ‘dry-on application’ product such as an aerosol.
- Using too much product can lead to build up or yellow staining so keep your application at a minimum.
