Sometimes you have a favorite t-shirt that you love to wear, but just can’t get the smell of perspiration out of it, however many times you put it through the washing machine! If normal washing doesn’t do the trick, you may need to take a different tactic to eliminate difficult body odor. Find a few suggestions below.

Simple Solution

One simple method of removing t-shirt odors is to soak your t-shirt in baking soda. Add baking soda to a sink of water and let it sit for a couple hours. Then wash with laundry soap, as usual. Baking soda is a natural deodorizer, and in most cases will rid clothing of its malodors. Dry thoroughly, and if possible, in the sun. Hanging any laundry to dry in the sun will help remove mildew, leaving you with fresh-smelling tshirts. Another simple method is to add white vinegar to the wash - Fill a bathroom sink with lukewarm water and 1 cup of white vinegar plus 1 tablespoon of salt. Add your tshirt and swish around for a minute. Allow to soak for 30 minutes. Drain the sink, press out most of the water, but do not rinse. Place item(s) in sun for several hours, until dry. Then wash your tshirt in warm, soapy water and rinse very thoroughly. Repeat the rinse cycle. Be sure to wash them with bleach-free detergent. Combining bleach and vinegar will create toxic fumes that are hazardous to your health. Dry normally.


Best Solution

Built-in odor control or antimicrobial technology prevents the build-up of odor-causing bacteria on textiles, so that garments stay fresher for longer. Antibacterial technology gives you the confidence to wash at today's recommended low temperatures without worrying about the build-up of bacteria that can cause odors.
