How to Not Get Deodorant Marks on Your Shirt

If you are getting deodorant on your shirt, you are likely not using proper technique when you put your shirt on.  Ask yourself if you are using your armpits to help get your shirt on.  You are probably doing this without even realizing it.  Try this instead:

1. Fold the bottom of your shirt out over itself before you put it on.  The inside of your shirt will now be facing outward in the area that usually picks up deodorant marks.  If you get them now, they will be in a place where no one sees them.

2. Put your arms through the arm holes of your shirt up to your upper arms, but not all the way to your armpits.

3. Put your head through while keeping your elbows up.  The easy way to do this is to use your two thumbs to pull the neck hole open before your pull it over your head.

4. Now, use one hand to grab the shirt under the opposite armpit and hold it away from your skin.  Slide that hand across the folded hem of the shirt toward it's own side, and then match it symmetrically with your other hand.

5. You should now have your head and arms through the shirt and be holding the bottom (folded edge) away from your armpits.  Now you can pull it down with your hands, not sliding it across your armpits.

6. Unfold the bottom of the shirt so that it is on normally.

Awesome Tip of the Day:  If you somehow mess this up or simply forgot to do it, you can get rid of the deodorant marks by rubbing the cloth against itself over the deodorant mark.  If that does not work, wipe it with a damp paper towel or cloth.
