Sweat happens. For most people, it's a regular part of life. In the summer, however, soaring temperatures makes sweat even more of an issue. Between the sweat, deodorant, and antiperspirants — not to mention any outdoor grime that affixes itself to your sticky body — your clothing can really take a beating. As it continues to heat up outside, you may want to have some mind-blowing ways to prevent pit sweat and remove pit stains on hand to protect yourself all summer long.
Rings of wet sweat around your armpits can be embarrassing, even when everyone else is just as much of a sweaty mess as you. There are a number of things you can do, however, to prevent that excess sweat from happening in the first place. One way that's maybe not so mind-blowing is to make certain that you're following the directions on the box or applicator of your antiperspirant. According to The Verge, since antiperspirant works by clogging up sweat ducts in your armpits, you should be applying it at night so that there's time for it to settle in and become effective before your body begins to sweat. That will keep you from getting as sweaty the next day, which means no embarrassing stains or sweat marks.
If you can't avoid pit stains — because, hey, that's life — know that you can treat and remove sweat stains from your clothes. There are pre-wash stain treatments that you can buy, but you can also use some items from around the house. If you're looking for creative and inventive ways to prevent sweat or remove the resulting stains, you may not need to venture far from home to find the solution.
