How To Remove Deodorant Or Anti-perspirant Stain

The simplest way to remove a deodorant / anti-perspirant stain is with (of all things) a credit card!  Take an old credit card and scrape its edge along the stain, and you'll see the pieces slowly surface and begin to flake away.  This requires a sturdy fabric and a lot of patience, but given both, you can flake the majority of an old anti-perspirant stain away.  If this doesn't work and the item not yet been cleaned/dry cleaned, try the link below for perspiration stains.

Also note that deodorant & anti-perspirant stains (which are white) are not the same as a perspiration stain (which is yellow, tan or brown).
