No More Deodorant Marks on Your Shirts

I use this tip every day, so it deserves to be repeated.

If you’re like me (or anyone, for that matter) you hate getting those white marks on your shirts.  It seems that, no matter how careful you think you are, deodorant rubs off onto your shirt, causing those embarrassing white marks.  And then you have to figure out how to get them off – or change your shirt!

Here’s a super simple tip for avoiding those marks in the first place.  Roll the hem of your shirt up two or three times before putting it on:

When you pull it over your head, you might still get deodorant marks on the shirt, but they will be on the inside of the shirt.  Simply unroll the hem to hide them, and you will not have any embarrassing white marks on the outside of your shirt!

If you forget to roll the hem of your shirt and get white deodorant marks after all, try rubbing a clean section of the shirt on the marks.  They will go away!  I’d rather avoid them in the first place, but it’s good to know how to fix them, too.  I read somewhere that rubbing with a clean white sock takes care of them too, but I haven’t tried that.
