Yellow isn’t mellow when it’s your favorite blouse or shirt! Yellow under arms stains can completely ruin your favorite washable white or light shirt unless you’re willing to take a few extra steps to keep it white. Underarm yellowing is caused by a combination of the salt in your perspiration, what you eat, and the type of deodorant you use.

Easy Ways To Prevent Underarm Yellowing On Your Clothes

  • Try aluminum-free deodorant
  • Don’t dress immediately after applying deodorant, let it dry or use your blow dryer to help dry it
  • Don’t let your clothes sit around dirty… many stains show after a couple days of not being cleaned

Pre-cleaning Your Clothes Can Get Rid of Underarm Yellowing

  • Use Washing Detergent – Mix up a solution of one-part water to four parts dish washing detergent. Then spritz the clothing on to the underarm areas. Then gently break up the stain with the light rubbing of a toothbrush.


  • Use Oxygen Products – Use one of the oxygen or oxi cleaner products to help get rid of the yellow. Make sure to follow the instructions on your clothing labels though.

NEXT – Let the clothing sit for a few minutes, rinse it out, and launder your clothes!
