Sweat stains in clothes or other fabrics looks dirty and unpleasant. It is therefore important to remove sweat stains quickly. Sweat stains can sometimes be very persistent, but it’s still possible to quickly and effectively remove all sweat stains from your clothes or other fabrics.
The most common method for removing sweat stains is to treat sweaty clothes with vinegar and cold water. It does not matter what kind of vinegar is used, but it is recommended to use white vinegar or cleaning vinegar. White vinegar and cleaning vinegar are more concentrated than other types of vinegar so the treatment of sweat stains can be more effective. If you have decided to use vinegar, it is important to soak the garment in a bucket with cold water and a dash of vinegar. Soak the garment for about half an hour. After soaking, it can be washed according to the instructions on the label.
In some cases, however, it’s better to treat clothes or other fabrics with salt to achieve the best results. If you want to remove sweat stains from clothes made from coloured linen, wool, silk, cotton and synthetic fabrics, it’s wise to soak the garments or any other fabrics in salted water. Make sure there is not too much salt in the water, because that isn’t necessarily good for the fabric. Approximately 5% salt in a bucket of water is sufficient. Then it is important to wash the garment according to the instructions on the label
You can also remove sweat stains with hydrogen peroxide. If you want to use the hydrogen peroxide method, you need to take some important things into consideration, as using hydrogen peroxide in the wrong way can lead to bad results, given the aggressive nature of the product.
First of all, it’s important to mix the hydrogen peroxide with water. The mixture should consist of half water and half hydrogen peroxide. Mix togther in a bucket and soak the garment or other fabric in it for about half an hour. Secondly, it’s important to rinse the garment or other fabric with cold water. Thirdly, it is very important that you do not use a dryer with this method, but let the garments or other fabrics dry in the open air for best results.
One of the oldest and easiest ways to remove sweat stains from clothes and other fabrics takes advantage of the warmth and light of the sun. Put your clothes or other fabrics in the sun for a few hours and let the sweat rise to the surface of the textile with the heat of the sun.
When the sweat reaches the surface of the garment, the garment or other fabric can be washed according to the instructions on the label. The sweat that comes to the surface can easily be washed away and there is a good chance that all sweat stains will be gone after one wash. This method can usually only be used in the summer, because of course the sun has to give off enough light and heat to achieve good results.
