6 tips on how to remove white shirt stain

WWhile I personally don’t prescribe the idea that white can only be worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day (hey, winter whites are a chic trend that I’m not letting go of anytime soon!), you should be recognized that my whites Especially my white t-shirts! They are definitely used exponentially more during those summer months. And what is more? There are also a ton of obstacles that make it decidedly more difficult to keep them spotless than during the fall and winter. Sweat, grass stains, barbecue seasoning, rosé spills… the list goes on.

As such, I’ve developed a kind of rule book to try to help you work overtime throughout the summer. Here are my favorite tips and tricks to not only help minimize (and dare I suggest prevent) staining your bright white jerseys, but also a little help if you run into one of those aforementioned sticky situations.

1. Clean your white clothes frequently

Even if you think you don’t sweat at all, let alone “that much,” wash your white t-shirts after almost every wear this summer. Sweat has an annoying way of staying totally clean and clear for weeks on end until you pull that wanna-be-clean t-shirt out of your drawer the next time you’re looking for something classic to wear and realize your underarms and cleavage have started to become a less than flattering shade of yellow.

2. Prioritize your white shirts

Did you splurge on a perfect white t-shirt that costs more than the full outfit you wore yesterday, but is so perfect that you couldn’t say no? Keep it as perfect as ever by choosing a more affordable and durable option for those sweaty summer errand runs or a messy picnic in the park, and reserve your deluxe tee for cocktail pairings.

3. Be prepared

Tide to Go ($3) is about to become your best friend. If you happen to drip that little bit of something on your clean white t-shirt, don’t wait until it’s on and never take it off. Take that skinny pen out of your bag and dab some of the magic solution on top of it to try and nip it in the bud before it’s too late.

4. Do not be afraid of natural remedies

If you don’t like bleach, consider adding natural additives to your wash, like baking soda or lemon. The former (baking soda) gives an excellent pre-soak soak of a few hours, while the latter (lemon juice) is best when added a half cup to a load of clothes.

5. Turn to technology

Didn’t you think doing laundry was a job for the tech gods? Think again. With apps like myStain from Clorox, you can look for stains from “hamburger dripping” to coffee; grass and ice cream alike for a step-by-step guide on how best to remove them.

6. When all else fails… it’s tie-dye time.

Could we suggest a fun DIY project when that white t-shirt has gone too far? This is practically what one of the biggest trends of the season was made for! That’s right, we’re talking about tie-dye. If you somehow ended up with that stain that won’t come off, a yellowish t-shirt that was once bright white, or a blouse that has been loved a little also So much, have a little fun with tie dye and repurpose it into something totally different!

This is the fastest way to remove makeup from a white t-shirt, and *this* is how to remove blood stains from sheets.
