Topical HEAT SWEAT question


#1

was gonna make this a thread for awkward questions but thought nahh

a few of my work shirts have pretty minging dark patches from sweat. i dont cope well in the heat. they dont stink and i dont get patches in the day but they seem to show after washing. any options on how to get rid of these/ prevent them (i wear deodrant before any smart arse states that!). tried bicarbonate and water but it doesnt do too well

dont judge me


#2

Is it antiperspirant rather than just deodorant? The latter only stops the smelly bacteria and not the sweat


#3

turn the air con up


#4

This is a good question.

I have similar stains around the cuffs and collar - luckily not visible to other human eyes, but it doesn’t make me feel too great.

Any advice would be wonderful.


#5

yeah mine arent visible but its just a bit gross isnt it

online seems to suggest using vinegar before washing ?


#6

nah tend to use antiperspirant!doesnt really show in the day either (or not that I notice)


#7

Wear a jumper


#8

The answer to all of these questions is either vinegar or bicarbonate of soda


#9

I’ve used this before…

Cleaned them up 50-75%. It smells pretty bad though but does work


#10

only wear vests / go tapps aff in warm weather
