So we all love deodorant stains.
I mean, who doesn't love putting on their shirt after applying deodorant only to find that lines have magically appeared all around the hem? I mean, am I right? Anyone?
//COMMENT BELOW "😍" IF YOU JUST LOOOOVE DEODORANT STAINS TOO//
And like I'm going to be writing this as I look at the websites...so like kinda live but not really? I don't know. I'm winging this guys.
I'm realizing now that this tip might require actual research. Great.
I expect some likes for this effort I'm putting into this tip, like no one ever appreciates all the time and effort I put into thi--love you guys!!
You know what? I just decided we're going to be official. You hear that, english teacher? I'M DOING MY WORKS CITED FOR ONCE!!
I'M READY. FIGHT ME.
1) "Do It Yourself Deodorant Stain & Buildup Remover." Undershirt Guy Blog. N.p., 30 Sept. 2017. Web. 23 Mar. 2018.
First up: some TOP credibility from "undershirtguy.com" (hmu w that a teach) comes this AMAZING idea. I mean, come on guys, it's a DIY. AND a blog. So it obviously must work. Obviously.
"Rub another part of your shirt on the mark
Take a nylon stocking or cotton sock and rub it on the mark
Used fabric softener sheets
Find a piece of foam rubber, like that grippy foam on the top of hangers, and rub that on the mark"
Oml, there's even a video. From 2012. I'm excited.
Wait, this isn't even from the website. They literally just stole the bullets from some YouTuber. Haha uhmmm...
TOP CREDIBILITY RIGHT HERE BOIS.
2) Kerr, Jolie. "11 Easy Ways to Remove Deodorant Marks From Clothes." YouBeauty. N.p., 28 July 2015. Web. 23 Mar. 2018.
In case you guys were wondering, yes, I am, in fact, running all these URLs through EasyBib. Get on my level.
"If you wear deodorant, you’ve almost definitely been there: You pull your best black sweater over your head and look in the mirror to admire yourself,
only to find a big white mark marring your clothing. Ugh! So annoying, right?!?"
OMG. How relatable! (IT'S CALLED SARCASM, GUYS. MY. GOSH.)
But tbh the doc I'm writing this in just underlined the word "marring" in red, sooo uhm haha (totally #.winning that a).
Fun fact about me guys: I decided to write all my tips in docs because I'm literally the worst speller you will ever meet.
so anyways, onto the actual *facts*
" 1. A damp washcloth
Sometimes the simplest solution is the best one: A dampened washcloth or rag will make short work of removing white streaks left behind when you pull clothes over your head.
Just be sure to wring it out well so that it’s truly damp and not wet, otherwise your clothes will be uncomfortably sodden.
I agree, Jolie, wearing damp clothes is quite...sodden.
But actually guys, she's writing this as if you're about to go swimming across the Atlantic wearing you're deodorant-stained shirts. Though, actually...
that'd probably get me farther than anything that the "undershirtguy.com" has to say about this topic.
3) "How to Remove Deodorant Stains from Clothes." Persil UK. N.p., n.d. Web. 23 Mar. 2018.
"Instead of removing deodorant stains, try preventing them
Don’t be left wondering how to remove deodorant stains from clothes after they appear; prevent them happening in the first place with these simple tips:
Wait until your deodorant is completely dry before getting dressed to ensure as little transfer as possible
Wash whites and light-coloured clothes as soon as you’re done wearing them to stop the bacteria found in sweat from mixing with the ingredients in your deodorant to form
those pesky yellow stains"
GOSH. Whomever would've thought of that?
👏 IT 👏 WASN'T 👏 ME 👏
Hahaha I'm enjoying this if you couldn't already tell. Oh, this is great.
"Nylon Stockings (yes, really!)
This is a great trick to use for coloured clothing.
Try rubbing nylon stockings, a dry towel, or even a clean sock on the stain, then pop the item in the washing machine with a colour-safe detergent that's designed to help clothes stay vibrant,
like Persil Powercaps Colour [there's a link on the actual website over those last three words,
so I'll copy it here: https://www.persil.com/uk/laundry/detergent/products/persil-colour-powercaps.html] washing capsules.
This method is ideal for removing marks left behind from a deodorant stick."
OMG. /NYLON/ stockings? I'd never think of those! But actually..this website though hahaha (GOSH. IT'S. A. JOKE.)
4) "How to Get Rid of Deodorant and Perspiration Stains." Eco Nuts Organic Soap Nuts. N.p., 04 Apr. 2013. Web. 23 Mar. 2018.
So this one's from "eco nuts" which I assume means it's somehow eco-friendly? But like, I wouldn't know. For all we know, it could all very well be a fake! I mean, according to Donald Trump:
"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."
...which is /totally/ credible. #imnotfallingforthattrap
>>>IT'S A JOKE<<< CLIMATE CHANGE IS A VERY, VERY REAL THREAT AND HAPPENING FAST.
Okay, back to the actual reason why I'm writing this tip (that's the *facts*, obviously. Get with it.)
"Turn clothes inside-out when washing.
The agitation in the washing machine of other garments rubbing up against the fabric and the open exposure will allow the deodorant to be removed much more easily.
This is simple but it actually one of the most effective methods for removing deodorant."
Rhetorical question: isn't that, like, what washing machines are made to...do? Idk bro, just thinking out loud here.
This isn't even remotely helpful. Like, who writes these things? Can't they just eliminate such useless information? I mean like, come on? Am I right?
(It's called INTENSIONAL hypocrisy, for all you who were wondering. Side note: hahaha is that even a thing?)
Ooooh. Guys, you'll never guess what I just found.
Did you know that your expired steak from 2010 can actually be useful still? Because according to this website, there's a NEAT trick out there for you!
"Meat Tenderizer: I haven’t tried this one yet, but I’m told it works well! Just wet the area with water and sprinkle meat tenderizer on. Leave for 30 minutes and launder normally."
I can't even.
Who comes up with these sorts of ideas?
I NEED to see if this actually is a thing.
Guys. Look what I found.
"First, moisten the stain with warm water.
Then, sprinkle the stain with meat tenderizer (Clarification: Use non-seasoned meat tenderizer as seasoned may stain clothing) and work the spices into the stain.
(Most meat tenderizers contain enzymes such as bromelain, which help breakdown stains."
But like as I was reading this, an ad saying "99% of people in Connecticut [which is a STATE in the US for all you noobs] can't beat this" popped up.
And like, I know it's clickbait and all, but honestly, I HAD TO BEAT IT. It didn't matter that I don't even live in Connecticut. I HAD to. God, I'm so getting hacked for that.
But I got them all right, so it's alright :)
5) "How to Remove Deodorant Stains." HowStuffWorks. HowStuffWorks, 23 Mar. 2006. Web. 23 Mar. 2018.
This last one might actually be the most *credible* source we've got here today. Is that bad? Idk.
So like my mindset with this one was that I've seen the HSW (that's "How Stuff Works" you noobs) tv show, and I was like "hey. THIS might not be a complete bomb!" and so yeah, here we are now.
WAIT OMG IT'S A SLIDES PRESENTATION! WHAT A STEEEEAL!!
I'M CLICKING THE FIRST SLIDE GUYS I'M SO EXCITED!!
OMG! IT LOOKS /SLICK/! Here, read for yourselves (!!) :
"Follow these steps to remove deodorant stains from non-washable fabrics such as Acetate, Burlap, Carpet/Synthetic, Carpet/Wool, Cotton, Fiberglass, Linen, Rayon, Silk, Triacetate and Wool:
Apply rubbing alcohol to the stain and cover with an absorbent pad dampened with alcohol (dilute alcohol with 2 parts water for acetate, Rayon,
and triacetate; test silk for colorfastness before using alcohol).
Keep both moist.
Allow to stand as long as any stain is being removed."
This is actually...helpful.
I actually accomplished something here.
Your welcome guys.
I think I'll end it here so that I don't ruin the moment by saying something stupid.
