Saw It, Pinned It, Did It!

I don't even know where to start with this one... so let's go straight in to it.

Yellow armpit stains.


We all have been there...
(if you haven't, then I don't like you)

Wear a white t-shirt, wash it, then BAM... yellow stains.


This happens to ALL of my white shirts. Pizzes me off. So basically, I had this section of my closet that was white shirts that I could not wear because of these nasty stains. After it happened to one of my beloved Cigarette Racing tank tops, I had enough! One day on Pinterest, I found this:
and this...
Hmmm.... I have all that stuff and it looks pretty easy. I pinned this almost one year ago and I finally took the time to sit down and treat my shirts yesterday.

I mixed my Dawn (Ajax works, too) and hydrogen peroxide in to a spray bottle for easier application. I sprayed it on the stains, sprinkled a little baking soda, sprayed a little more to make a paste, lightly scrubbed the spot to get the mixture deep in to the fabric, and then let it sit for a few hours. I washed the shirts in hot/cold soak cycle with detergent and Oxy Clean and when they came out they were CLEAN! I mean good as new!

I could not believe it!! I seriously did not think it would work, so my dumbass didn't take any before pictures. Horrible blogger, I know.

But trust me, It works. Some of these shirts have been sitting in my close since December of 2010. I kid you not. This stuff removed a stain that was two and a half years old. I still can't believe it!

Try it, I swear it works!

Happy Thursday!
