Keeping white T-shirts white can be complicated. You have to eat carefully when you wear it and be sure it doesn’t get mixed in with any colorful laundry, but one of the worst things is yellow armpit stains. The painfully irreversible splotch is seriously the worst. We’ve all been there and wondered, How the heck can I avoid this from happening again? Well, it has nothing to do with the brand, the material, or how you wash the wardrobe staple. According to SheFinds, the key to ensuring those annoying yellow stains never see the light of day is aluminum-free deodorant. An antiperspirant blocks odor and sweat, which cause those ugly stains to appear out of nowhere. So next time you choose to wear a white T-shirt, opt for a deodorant that doesn’t include this ingredient.
