    Seriously I'm getting pissed off now, about 5 of my shirts have stains on them from deodorant, I used Gillette before and now old spice 'clear gel' and all of them fucking stain my brand new shirts.

    I had fairtex green MT shirt it has stains even on freaking bottom on it (when you put the shirt on).

    Advice please, this is fucking ridiculous.

    Arrid Extra Dry (gel) works like a champ.

    I think you are just a sweaty bastard. I have never had this issue. Try wearing an under shirt. Then you can stink up the under shirt and your good stuff will be fine.

    Maybe someone here will know how to get the stains out.

    I too am a sweatin' son of a bitch. There's nothing to be done. I've accepted who I am in life. Wearing undershirts help.

    I use Gillette sport. First, I don't apply too much around the underarm area and wipe of any excess. Then I let it dry as much as possible before putting on my shirt. Sometime I wear a white undershirt for a few minutes to 'absorb' the excess deo gel. Works so far, and I haven't stained any of them. Hope that didn't come off as metro or anything...

    You don't need to wear it under the shirt. Just put one on for 5-10 minutes to absorb excess deo, then take it off and wear your shirt. I've found that helps. If you're in a rush and can't spare the time, then try wiping off the excess with a towel and stand in front of a fan to dry.

    I am also a sweaty bastard like you guys... I use to have a problem staining my shirts..

    Then i tried this stuff you can find at CVS called

    "Certain Dri". Its a liquid antiperspirant that closes your pores on your armpits. I dont notice myself sweating in other placers more either. All in all, this stuff is awesome. I use to be self concious on raising my hand up high but now the wetspots are lighter... or arent even there.

    This is the stuff.
    Buy Certain Dri Antiperspirant Roll-On for Excessive Perspiration Online at drugstore.com

    its a life saver

    By the way... NEVER use a gel stick. I use to use speed stick and other gel sticks... those stained the shit out of my shirts.

    Do your pits smell ? Or are they just sweaty?

    Because if your pits also stink, you can apply deoderant on AFTER you apply the Certain Dri stuff. Wait for it to dry first.

    I use the old school white stick deodorant. It doesn't drip down your arms and body like the gel does. You just have to trim up your armpit hair so you don't get the clumps.

    Shaving the pit hair with a no-clip helps a lot.
