What deoderant wont stain my shirts?

Asked by JesusWasAJewbot (1500 points ) February 27th, 2013

I have been using Old Spice (different variants) for years now, I started noticing that the blue sticks are staining the armpit areas of my white shirts blue and the clear (yellow) sticks are leaving yellow stains.

What deodorants can I try out that wont leave these marks?

I use Mitchum gel, and so does my hubby. No problems with staining, and it works. Oh, and you generally don’t smell like a cheap cologne factory.

Are these also anti-persperants? Zinc is used in anti-persperants to block sweat glands, and it can also get into fibers if clothing. Since it’s a metal, it will oxidize (rust) overtime and introducing it to water will speed up the process.

A paste of baking soda and water works as a deodorant (note spelling ) but not an antiperspirant (note spelling). Any residue on a white shirt would be invisible and would help with the laundry detergent.

A lime. No joke. There also sticks made of lime & coconut oil that are almost as effective as the lime on it’s own.
