Here's a few tips we've learned along the way in using natural deodorant.
A Handy Laundry Tip
This is our favorite tip of all, because it's so useful! If we get sweat or oil residue on our clothes, we spray the area with isopropyl alcohol before washing it. We put the alcohol in a spray bottle and spray as needed right before we drop the clothes in the washing machine. No need to let it set. This even works on oil stains that are set in the clothes. Sometimes I don't notice an oil mark until after the clothes have been washed AND dried. Even so, I just treat the stain with a few sprays of isopropyl alcohol and rewash. I've used this trick when I've spilled cooking oil on my shirt, and it works for that too! If it's a really bad oil stain, it might take a couple of washings for it to come out completely. We've never had it damage our clothes, but use your own discretion with your fabrics.
We like to keep this alcohol spray around because we use it to sanitize our tools and equipment when we are making products. We have a spray bottle of alcohol in our laundry room and in our soap room. Cleanliness is important to us, and we thought you might appreciate knowing that!
Stay well, friends!
