Style For Style: Removing Nasty Armpit Stains

Lily Donaldson and Gemma Ward make doing laundry look glamorous, but for those of us in the real world, it's anything but. Whether you're doing it in a ball gown or not, the reality is that yellow pit stains are one of the things that make the process grueling. They're stubborn and a major pain to remove. Plus, they make you look smelly, certainly not a look a Fabby is going for.

To see how to remove nasty pit stains,

Take any aspirin, like Bayer Aspirin Coated Tablets ($5) and drop one tablet in the washing machine before doing laundry. The pill naturally dissolves and helps remove yellow pit stains, and any other stains your clothes may have. Who knew a pill could be so multi-talented?!

In my experience, it doesn't work on really set-in stains too well - like your work-out clothes. The trick I've found for the really bad stains is baking soda, vinegar, and boiling water poured directly on the stain and let it soak for a while, then wash normally.

It doesn't have to be Bayer by any means. Any aspirin will do. And syako, I'd only use this on whites. xo.

Yeah that is a much better option for getting those stains out than the other methods I've tried. I once tried to bleach them out and that totally did in my white tank tops for good. Then I heard about the aspirin trick, tried it out and it worked like a dream. Highly recommend.
