A Gym Bag Essential: Gal Pal Garment Deodorant Removers

I am sure this has happened to you: You decide to workout during your lunch break. This means you have to change, workout, shower, change again and get back to work, all in under an hour. Somewhere between applying your deodorant and putting on your shirt, you manage to get white streaks all down the sides of your blouse (you know, the one you have to wear all day). Water helps, but once it dries the whiteness reappears. Ugh!

One thing that I always keep in my gym bag are these cool deodorant remover pads from Gal Pal. These amazing little sponges are specially designed to quickly and easily remove deodorant marks from clothing, without the use of cleaners or chemicals (or profanities). Simply wipe with the grain or texture of the garment to remove the stain, and voila, back to work. Think this would be a good staple for your gym bag? Then buy a package (2 per pack) from The Container Store online for $9.99.

My good friends DearSugar and FabSugar are big fans too, so you don't have to just take my word for it!

I also picked up the trick from "House of Style" 10 years ago, and it has been working for me ever since.

I learned lots of great old-school tricks while working through college at a fancy boutique. One of the mentioned-above tricks of using the same fabric to wipe off deodorant or powder was a stand-by. It works better than anything else, and it's free.

I've found that the cheapest and easiest way to remove deoderant stains is to use pantyhose. Grab an old, holey pair of pantyhose and rub the stained area.

I've got a better tip that I heard from--get this, MTV's "House of Style" show (like what 10+ years ago? haha). Anyway, a stylist on the show recommended this and it works (for free): If you get deodorant on your shirt of whatever, simply use the underside of the shirt and start rubbing the white marks out. It really works well with most fabrics, I've found. Cotton is a little more difficult though. Beats a $10 sponge any day.

I just use make up sponges. They work really well and quick. And you don't have to buy something extra.
