Welcome to Pinterest Tested! Ever wonder if that miracle cleaner is really miraculous? Or what about that homemade facial cleanser or delicious-looking recipe? This is the place to find out! Each Monday I am testing Pins that catch my eye to see if they really live up to the claims made on Pinterest. It's like the Mythbusters of Domesticity!
Today I'm testing THIS PIN:
It's a problem we sweaty people have to deal with... those horrid yellow stains on all of our white undershirts. I have tried many different remedies and have yet to find one that works perfectly. And apparently I am not alone: this is a very popular Pin!
THE TEST: Will hydrogen peroxide and Dawn work as a stain remover for yellow underarm stains?
I gave it a whirl. And it worked... sort of. It definitely lightened the stains on most of the shirts, but it didn't completely get rid of them. Here's my picture:But what I think would work really well is if I used this every time I wash my white shirts to help prevent the stains from ever getting bad.
THE RESULT: It worked, but not miraculously. I think it could get rid of stains with repeated use.
After I washed these, I read that sprinkling a little baking powder on the stain helps with scrubbing power. I am definitely going to try this again. I think if I treat them with every wash, this solution will work.
