It's happened to every single person reading this.  You're slipping on your favorite black dress or a freshly laundered navy v-neck tee, and when you do a final mirror check, you see the white deodorant streaks smeared across the sides.

If you're like me, you're already running late and don't have time to change clothes, or even to head to the bathroom to wash it off with a wet washcloth (which, inevitably, leads to a need to dry it with the hair dryer…right?)  It's enough to make you want to stop using deodorant altogether, until you remember the BO.

Never fear!  Again, assuming we have some things in common, you have baby wipes in every nook and cranny of your life.  Admittedly, we now just call them "wipes," and we generally just use them on hands and faces.  Thanks to Real Simple, we now use them on deodorant stains, too!  It takes off the deodorant and leaves your top just mildly damp, rather than dripping wet.  You can do it in the car on the way to whatever it is you're late for, and it'll be dry by the time you arrive!  Have you tried this trick?  Do you know of other stain-removal tricks?  Please share in the comments!

As a personal stylist in Richmond, VA, I strive to make wardrobe choices clear and easy for women who are short on time, overwhelmed by their closets, or transitioning from one period of life to another.  Let's connect!
