Re: Deodorant causing hardening of sports T-shirts (underam)?

I use the type of deodorant that is a solid crystal type, you wet it and rub it under your arms. Log story relating to radiotherapy, but I only sweat from one armpit and it makes up for the other one so I don't want to be known as Mrs Stinky from Scotland

Would that be Mrs Right Stinky, or the less punworthy Left Stinky?

Lol, Mrs Right Stinky, the left armpit is the one that doesn't sweat (or grow underarm hair, it's a bit weird )

I'm with this..

Sweat doesn't smell at all .. It's the bacteria eating the sweat that excretes the smell ..

I understand, but diet plays a part too(I think). If you eat garlic every day or spicy food, your sweat will stink a lot more compared to someone who eats bland food! People who eat mainly meat have a different smell signature, say compared to someone who eats tofu all day

Re: Deodorant causing hardening of sports T-shirts (underam)?

I'm no expert but Mrs Parker tells me this is what happens with short cold washes and "sports" wash cycles.

Re: Deodorant causing hardening of sports T-shirts (underam)?

Have you tried a deodorant balm?


I've been using Akt London recently. It does the business.

I want to know if you have success in removing stiffness and stains that are already there, and not just preventing new stuff.

I stand by for your report

Re: Deodorant causing hardening of sports T-shirts (underam)?

What always works for me is to soak the armpit area of the shirt in hot water with dish washing soap (hand washing type). This will get rid of the grease buildup, then after soaking, really scrub the areas well with the soapy water, and rinse well.
then soak, for as long as possible, in white vinegar.
This combo works amazing but likely has to be repeated every so often as the deodorant/antiperspirant starts to build up again.

There are enzyme breakdown types of laundry detergent, but not sure if they are available in CH.

Yes.

TTYL - even 60deg cycle and soaking my suit shirts and gym wear with vinegar and peroxide didn't really work that well. The water here is too hard. Drinking more water helps a little, dilutes the sweat, but waiting for your recipes and experiments!

Reporting back! FAIL!!!! I tried Vanish Oxi Action stain remover spray, white Vinegar with Baking soda. Even boiled the underarm area before applying. Scrubbed with brush and kept it dipped overnight.


Next day, washed at 60c, and it seemed less crispy + stain free. I felt positive and confident, but when the clothes dried they were just like before Maybe they improved by 10%

I have a few dark-coloured sports T-shirts that are becoming crisp/stiff/hard under the arm and showing white chalk like stain.

It has to do with the generous amount of deodorant that I use (aluminium) reacting with my sweat etc (I use this deodorant). I always wear my T-shirts once and then wash at 40c, but I do sports for many hours each time I wear them.


According to this Nivea link, I need-

- Baking Soda (Is this the correct product? Link to image)
- White Vinegar (Is this the correct product? Link to image)
- Lemon juice
- Hydrogen Peroxide. Any link? (bleaching properties, so I won't use it as my T-shirts are dark)


Any product or technique you can recommend, before I go out and buy?
Flippant reply but
-buying new T-Shirts probably cheaper than above chemicals
- Stop using Deo, if you are full on “sports for many hours” it makes no difference.
- Spritz areas with Vanish before wash

Re: Deodorant causing hardening of sports T-shirts (underam)?

Yeah and softening the water you do laundry in, it seems to wash a tiny bit better.

Please don't follow this advice. Once in a while there is someone in the gym who doesn't use deodorant and omg, the smell is so bad it is nauseating. The person sweating doesn't smell it so bad him/herself but it is BAD for the others, even with a mask!

OK. I amend to Stop using Deo to “use once in a while” if bothering other gym users
