Getting Out Sweat Stains

"How do I get sweat stains and body odor out of clothes? Nothing I do seems to help." --iVillager hpingree


Sweat "stains" may not be stains at all. Sweat may do irreversible damage to the fiber, in which case, you're out of luck. The body odor thing, I must admit, intrigues me. Laundering clothes usually removes body odor. Sometimes applying a small bit of detergent directly to the problematic area before you toss an item into the wash is helpful. Also, make sure you're not packing the laundry tub so tightly that the detergent can't do the job properly.
