Style 911: How Can I Get Rid Of (And Prevent!) Deodorant Stains?

“It never fails: I’m rushing to get ready and get out the door in the morning and I end up getting deodorant stains all over my shirt or dress. Do you guys have any tips for getting the marks out or just preventing them altogether? I realize I could put my anti-perspirant on after I get dressed but sometimes I forget and with certain cuts you really have to put it on first ya know? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.”–Jillian

Hey Jillian, we seriously identify with your dilemma, as we just had a dry cleaner tell us they couldn’t get deo stains off our favorite navy blue silk shirt. Here’s how to get rid of them and how to never get them again! Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: SweatBlock

How sweet would it be to never have sweat stains on the pits of your silk tops and summer dresses? Forget antiperspirant, and instead try on Sweat Block, liquid soaked pads that you swipe on your underarms before bed, which then keeps your pits dry for a whole week. No joke. It may sound like a crock or a crazy science experiment that may give you cancer, but Sweat Block is scarily legit. The medicated wipes work best while you’re sleeping (when your sweat glands aren’t active), forming a non-filmy, undetectable chemical block. I’ve been using the pads for two weeks, and so far I give the company an “A” on the non-perspiration front. As for pleasantness of smell, Sweat Block gets a “C.” Yet, putting up with the temporary scent of the wipes is nothing in comparison to dealing with the smell of B.O.—or worse—baby powder-scented B.O.

Scented Clothes, For People Who Forget To Put On Perfume (Or Deodorant)

My problem with wearing perfume may have been solved by scientists! Researchers in Portugal have developed a way to insert microcapsules into fabrics. While scent microcapsules are usually made from formaldehyde, which isn’t exactly safe to have next to your skin, these scientists have developed a new, more environmentally friendly plastic out of limonene (found in the rinds of lemons), and the lemon-y scent even lasted through dry cleaning. Sadly, it seems there’s only the one scent available right now, but it could soon be used to make BO-neutralizing suits, socks, and underwear, and maybe after that they’ll find a way to embed Burberry Brit in dresses — then I’ll be set.
