How to prevent marking your shirt when wearing a natural deodorant.
Sometimes sweat and deodorant can mark your clothing. This can be especially true when using a natural deodorant and wearing white shirts. But fear not!
Here are a number of easy tips that will prevent you from marking your clothing altogether.
Ensure you underarms are dry
We recommend that our customers apply deodorant after their morning shower. However, you need to make sure your armpits are dry before you apply your ASÚVI. Maybe take a few moments between your shower and application as natural deodorants are oil based and water can prevent them from being properly absorbed.
We only recommend one (maybe two) swipe(s)
Our deodorant is quite strong, so we only recommend one or two swipes to the inside of your armpit for a full day of protection.
Only apply it to the part where you sweat
It can be tempting to apply deodorant generously to ensure proper protection. In actual fact, the only part of your underarm you need to apply your deodorant to is the inside of your armpit.
If you look at this picture, you can see the blue area is where the deodorant should be applied, and the grey is where it shouldn’t. Not only can applying deodorant to the grey area leave marks on your clothing, but also wastes the deodorant, without preventing moisture or odour.
Rubbing it in doesn’t hurt
Sometimes for extra effectiveness, you can rub the deodorant in with your hands. Yes! you’re right, one of the reasons we created ASÚVI as a stick was so that people didn’t have to use their hands. However, if you are experiencing marks it can be a good idea!
If you have only just seen this blog and have a few marks, they should wash out with normal washing detergent, or, you can apply some liquid detergent directly to the mark to ensure it is removed.
We recommend Dirt Laundry Detergent. It’s an Australian brand that is sustainable, refillable and beautiful by design, 3 things we really love!
Follow these steps and you’ll prevent more than just a stain
If you follow these instructions you will not only find that your stains disappear but your deodorant will also last longer, saving you money, and most importantly, it means that you are using resources more efficiently; in turn, reducing your environmental footprint!
