How to Get Rid of Armpit Stains

May 16, 2011

1. Understand what’s happening to you. Dr. Kemp Kernstine, at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, who treats hyperhidrosis (extra-sweaty syndrome), explains the nervous sweat: “If you’re being chased by a saber-toothed tiger, you’re going to run. And if you don’t sweat ahead of time, your muscles will overheat and you’ll get eaten.” So, relax.

2. Grab the emergency kit you keep at your desk: deodorant, hand wipes, undershirt.

3. Go to the bathroom. Enter the handicapped stall.

4. Remove shirt, hang it on the stall hook. Remove undershirt. Throw it out.

5. Tremitchell Wright, textile expert at the Whirlpool Institute of Fabric Science, recommends dabbing the sweat stains with the hand wipes; their water mixture has a solvent that dries sweat.

6. Press a paper towel on either side of the offending areas as hard as you can, as if you’re trying to get a wine stain out of a white carpet.

7. Put on a lightweight sport coat so you never again have to suffer this indignity.
