CONQUERING THE “PIT” STAIN

Washing Pit Stains*
-Gwen Whiting

I was borrowing some tennis and golf gear for my vacation and this shirt came out of the closet…

I grabbed it from my friend (name omitted for "pit" anonymity) as it was such a horror I couldn't let it go back in the drawer as is...

So as I'm washing all my vacation clothes (with some super duper sunscreen and mineral bath stains) I documented the shirt…

First, add Stain Solution & Bleach Alternative to pit stains:




Use the Stain Brush to work it in:


I soaked in hot water for less than an hour and send through a regular load of wash.

Then – be amazed – yellow stains are gone!

*We recommend this process on durable fibers such as cotton, linen and some synthetic materials.
