Tuesday Tip: The Productless Way to Remove Deodorant Stains

Tuesday Tip: The Productless Way to Remove Deodorant Stains(Source: Thinkstock, Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)There must be some unwritten rule in the sartorial law books that decree the more we rush to get ready, the more likely we are to end up with unsightly deodorant marks on our clothing—especially if said garments are black. While there exists an entire market of products dedicated to removing these embarrassing chalky white stains, ranging from sponges to actual deodorants that promise not to streak in the first place, there's an incredibly simple fix that won't cost you a dime.

In fact, when celebrity stylist Jen Rade—who works with A-listers such as Angelina Jolie and Zosia Mamet; serves as a judge on Lifetime's Project Runway: Under the Gunn; and has her own clothing line, EDGE by Jen Rade, with QVC—shared this hack with us, we couldn't believe we hadn't already thought of it ourselves. Prepare to have your mind blown.

The best way to get deodorant and other things off of clothing is to rub the fabric gently against itself. It's magic! If you get deodorant on the side of a top, just take the bottom of the top, bring it up to that area and lightly rub the fabric against itself in circles and it will remove the mark. It's a great quick fix—just be careful with silks and delicate fabrics."
