DIY: Remove Sweat Stains from T-Shirts

If you workout (or even if you don't), chances are you sweat. Any good exerciser has one or two favorite shirts that have acquired the yellowish sweat stains in the armpit area. That is the worst.

Here's a unique way to get rid of those nasty sweat stains from gomestic.com:

To remove perspiration stains from white T-shirts, dissolve two aspirins in half a cup of warm water and apply to the area of the fabric where the stain is. This should be left for a couple of hours before washing.

Hair turning green from the chlorine in the pool? There is a cool way to get that out too, so

Yellow or green hair from chlorine in a swimming pool can be remedied very quickly by dissolving 8 aspirin tablets in a glass of water and rubbing the resulting liquid into your hair. Leave for about ten minutes and then rinse it out. Shampoo in the usual way.

Easy, right? If you try it, let me know how it works.

I get so frustrated with my white tees turning yellow, thanks for the tip. Also, when I was a kid we used shampoo called Ultraswim (I think) to take the green hue out of our blonde hair. I was wondering if you can buy it anymore or if there is a comparable one out there now. I have a bottle of Pureology (in the light green bottle) for myself that works well, but it is so expensive I hate using it on my three blonde boys all summer.

Rinsing hair with vinegar, leaving on for five minutes is also an effective - but smelly - solution for removing chlorine-induced green from hair.

Also... One way to avoid getting the grosso yellow pit stains is to wear crystal deoderant. I haven't had any stains on my shirts since I started wearing it.White blouses are saved!!!

I also read somewhere that meat tenderizer mixed with a little water to create a paste and scrubbed into sweat stains works too. I just haven't been able to find meat tenderizer to try it.

this is an awsome tip- I also picked up a tip watching good morning america last month, if you pour baby powder onto the pits of your shirts and iron it in so it sets, the baby powder creats a barrier for sweat stains and you don't get those yellow stains on your shirt
