Don’t sweat it when it comes to getting sweat stains out of your garments. When your workout leaves you with unsightly pit stains, let Tide help with the hard work to save you the hassle. Armpit stains from sweat and deodorant are a fact of life, whether you’re working up a sweat in the gym, or logging extra hours at the office. Your busy life shouldn’t leave you with underarm stains, so follow Tide’s simple steps to restore your garments to their former glory.
Rinse:Rinse garment in water.
Dose: Use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of liquid detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine. Or, try new Tide PODS Odor Defense for perfectly measured, individual doses every time.
Load: Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash: Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload: When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the armpit stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
