and placing it around the back of the neck; then putting the shirt on.
I tried this tip and it works very well. The shirt collar covers the paper towel laying just underneath.
This summer in Toronto was a scorcher and on any typical ultra-hot humid day I went through 4 sheets of paper towel. No matter how much I sweat on those days my collars stayed stain-free.
Not very glamourous but it was discreet and it worked.

hey toronto_matt! if you're looking for a solution to remove deodorant stains, you should check out a new product called deo-go. i tried it out and wrote a review on it a few weeks back - it worked great.

do a google search for "deo-go" and you'll be able to find the company website as well as my review.

best,
tug

Firstly, if you stop using deodorants, lotions and soaps that contain aluminum and other questionable ingredients/chemicals, you'd be surprised by how much difference you'd start to notice. The stains and smells are reduced BIG-TIME.

Along with that, your best bet is to devise a stain treatment strategy that works for you and make sure to use it immediately after changing clothes. Under-shirts never hurt either.

I've tried the aforementioned strategy. It works well.

Wash the shirts after one wear. For the arm-pit just avoid using deodorant with aluminum and paraben. A paper towel under the collar? Come on guys

I always dab on a little baby or talcum powder around the neck, seem to work just fine as long as you don't mind the odor of it.

I prevent stains from developing by spraying Oxiclean (sodium percarbonate) on the neck and armpits of my shirts before washing them. Works very well.

wearing twice is a mistake, thats grinding todays dirt into yesterdays dirt.

I mix a bit of bleach into my bottle of Creed cologne. Thusly, my neck literally cleans my shirt throughout the day. Win-win.
