Deodorant & yellow stains

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
My husband has been using the same deodorant (Sure) for years, but lately it seems to be leaving a yellow stain on his lighter colored clothing. Does anyone have any suggestions for a mens' deodorant that doesn't stain?

Thanks.

I don't have a suggestion for deodorant, but "Oxyclean" works great to get out tough stains!

I wonder why thats suddenly happening, do you think they changed the formula?

He can get a good crystal deodorant stone.....

What he need is an antiperspirant. it is the sweat causing the yellow stains.

If hes not into the crystal thing ...... Jim and Matthew use Old Spice Red Zone and Speed Stick 24/7 ....... and I never smell them smelling fresh or see yellow stains.

I pre soak my shirts in HOT water, with Tide powder and Borax, overnight, then wash as usual. This not only gets out the yellow discoloration, but also removes the associated odor (which was my biggest concern!)

Karen, I use Sure Crystal which says it doesn't stain, and it hasn't so far?. Does Sure not have that one where you are?

Karen, I had this issue with some deodorant that I was using, nothing would move the stain.

Hubby decided that it was the wax in this old type of stick deodorant that I was using and that we needed the right solvent, so we went on a hunt around the store (the English arm of Walmart) and found this Sticky Stuff Remover it's brilliant and my previously unwearable blouses are now sparkly white again!

ETA For some of them it took a couple of goes, but the stain was noticeably whiter each time.

Exactly. My hubby uses a random type of deodarant, NOT antiperspirant, and as of the warmer weather, his tighter white tshirts get some yellowing. He doesn't like antiperspirant tho.....so I just deal with the yellowing...

Doesn't seem to happen on his looser clothing tho.

I just checked and what he has been using is an antiperspirant and deodorant.

None of the links that have been posted are working for me right now.

I'm going to have to spend some time in the deodorant aisle of the store.

I'll see if he woudl be willing to try the crystal.

Thanks, everyone.

My hubby will not use an antiperspirant at all because of the ingredients in them. He uses Mennen Speed Stick Deodorant and has never had any issues of odor or yellowing.

On the other hand, if ANYONE knows where I can find a ladies deodorant I would be thrilled to find out about it. There are ONLY antiperspirants on my store shelves.

Linda I have been doing a lot of googling about this in the past few days and one that keeps getting mentioned as deodorant only is Tom's of Maine:

http://www.tomsofmaine.com/products/deodorant.aspx

It can be found in organic and health food stores as well as big box stores. There is a link for a Canadian online retailer.

Fantastic! Thank you so much. I've looked in the stores where I shop, i.e., Shoppers Drug Mart, Sobey's, Walmart and could never find a women's deodorant. I will definitely look this one up and order up at least a half dozen to start with.

A warning with Tom's of Maine deodorant. (I tried it.) It contains an ingredient that many people are allergic to, but I forget what it's called. I used it for about a week (a couple of years ago), and my skin started peeling and burning.

?? spelling propelyne gycol... it is not something I like in my stuff.. I use natural deodorants without aluminum and the gycol when I can ... also not a guy thing but rosewater and lavender water help"_

Just updating - I was waiting for my prescription at a local pharmacy several days ago and was just wandering about the aisles and what do I see? Tom's of Maine deodorant. I bought one to try but am finishing my current one first.

Oh I hear you!!! I just don't get embarrassed about sweat stains, and poor hubby's an electrician he NEEDS to sweat when he's working outside in the summer! I know I use to get something called "Soft & Dry" and it was a roll on deodorant alone, but I can't find it any more.

I've also found if it's not too hot outside or I'm wearing a tank top I don't actually smell that bad at the end of the day. I've always got baby-wipes around and they do a pretty good job of cleaning up any bacteria if I do start to stink a little. Maybe that's just my opinion though .

For anyone having smell issues with sweaty t-shirts. Line dry them out in the sun inside out so the sun shines right onto the underarms of the shirt - that will help to kill all the bacteria & thus the smell!

Oxy is the best all purpose cleaner in the world. I use it for nearly everything. I just used it to clean the toilet. Amazing! It will also remove baked on, burned on gunk in casseroles.

I'm so cheap. We use baking soda OR washing soda (not the same thing) to do the same thing oxy clean does & it's 1/4 the price.

A little vinegar let it sit, then some baking soda & a quick scrub, my toilet is sparkling clean and it's septic friendly.

Washing soda is also a great pre-soak for yellow stains.

I have the Aromaco deodorant from Lush and I love it - they don't put nasty crap in their products and they're 100% cruelty free. http://www.lushusa.com/shop/products/body/deodorants

However I have to admit if I use this instead of an antiperspirant, I do sweat a lot, and then my armpit skin starts to hurt almost like chafing or something!!? So some days I use the Lush stuff, some days I use Secret.

white vinegar takes the yellow stains out
