Yellow Underarm Stains - Page 2

Arm & Hammer makes a good and natural anti-perspirant. Also, wearing an undershirt will seriously help prevent yellowing of the dress shirt armpit area. You can also shave your armpit hair off. You'd be amazed how little anti-perspirant/deoderant you'll need without the hair. If your shirt is already grimed yellow, throw it out. Even Oxy-Clean cannot revive a shirt that is beyond remedy.

Switching to yellow shirts might be the simplest solution.

I'm surprised that no one have thought of sewing cotton sweat pads near the armpits. I've done it before on white shirts now I never have to worry about staining the armpits. This solution is so clever I think they should be included in every shirt out there.

Yes. Hair generally insulates.

Now that you mention it, nicer blazers have a similar setup in them for the same reason. I just looked and all of my warmer weather blazers have them - well, not exactly "sweat pads", but small well done pieces of material in the pit.

+1.

This is why I have the same thing done to all my bench-made trou (or "pants" as some call them with little awareness of the plural.)

I have my guy put in a fairly big pad in the crotch. But, here's where he and I get inventive: the pad is not sewn in, but attaches with VELCRO. Two reasons: first, this allows me to remove the crotch pad only after three to five wears to send on to my dry cleaner (lesson? No need to launder trou ever); and (B) I just love that rrrriiippping sound it makes when I take the pad off.

I did not predict this, but this also makes riding a horse or other large animal (elephants in India, for example) much more comfortable. Bareback, which means for those of you who do not ride, no saddle.

Getting back to the Journal article, I like the new Murdoch WSJ. Stain coverage in the B&W drawing phase was shit poor.

Well done.

No. You are absolutely right.

Nod nod. Wink wink.
