Hello all!

I dunno what to do.  I seem to end up with icky deodorant stains on my shirts.  Then, to make it worse, an almost shirt will still smell after I wash it. It will smell bad too.  And once again, I don't smell bad  Wink  I dunno what is going on.  I don't smell and I'm very clean, LOL  Cheesy I don't like to use laundry soap with alot of additives in it since I'm sensitive to the dyes and fragrances, but I don't want my almost new shirts to smell bad and give me a complex when I sit at work all day and wonder if I smell.  I know I have washed things with vinegar before to get animal stains and smells out, but I dunno if that would work.  Plus washing things in hot water just makes things fade, I wash my shirts in cold.  Does anyone have a good natural alternative to harsh soap or chemicals that may work?  Or has someone tried the vinegar and not ruined their clothing?

A lot of times, those underarm stains are from your deodorant that you use.  After having problems with skin reactions from regular deodorants, I went to the natural foods/health store and the clerks showed me some mineral salt sprays that work just as well and don't leave those stains.

Anyway, here's a link that has some tips to rid stains ...http://www.mrscleannw.com/tips/sweat-perspiration-deodorant.html

You know, I thought it was me leaving the stains, I didn't realize it was the deodorant.  Hey, you learn something new everyday.  I will go and look for that deodorant.   Thanks so much!  I didn't even think to go that route. 

Now off to buy new clothes and deodorant that won't stain them!

Thanks for you help  Cheesy
