It's not actually sweat: How to avoid yellow pit stains on white tops
Have you given up on white tops and tees?
Whether you're a messy eater or are just sick of your makeup or tan rubbing off, keeping your whites white is a goddamn struggle.
Perhaps worst of all at this time of year is the fight to keep the pits of your white tees and tops from going yellow.
We've all fallen victim to those manky yellow stains and you might think lashing on the deodorant will sort it, but this could actually be the problem.
The stain is in fact most likely to be caused by a reaction between sweat and your deodorant.
"Yellowing of shirts is generally caused by an interaction between the aluminium compounds in your antiperspirant and the protein that comprises your sweat," Rachel Winard of Soapwalla, a natural beauty product company, told Bustle.
The best way to avoid yellow stains on your tops is therefore to use deodorant that is aluminium-free.
