    Try rubbing Dawn detergent into the stains and soaking. Then wash in the hottest water it can be washed in and air dry to make sure you got all of the stains out.

    Hello Joni, I was going to suggest for light clothes to use hydrogen peroxide and salt or baking soda mixed together to a paste-like consistency and then scrub it into the stains and let it sit a few hours before scrubbing with a fresh mix and then rinse well; or if it is dark clothes use white vinegar and salt or baking soda and do the same thing ... however, here are a few short links that show what others have tried and how it worked for them:
    So, there you have it ... your choice of what you want to do to try to eliminate stubborn deodorant and sweat stains from a cotton shirt ;) Good Luck, and thank you for choosing HOMETALK for a solution, or two, or three LOL ;)
