Embarrassing issue I have had going on recently . I usually wear the degree adrenaline series deodorant , havenít had any issues for years , however the last 3 weeks ever since my company switched to short sleeve work shirts ( weird ) the way the material sits in my armpit region and the combo of a lot of sitting and very hot rooms and vehicles my armpits are always soaked .

Itís becominf very embarrassing as the uniform is light grey and within an hour of my shift thereís a baseball sized wet spot under my entire pit and spreads wider to the point I canít hide it :

Idk what I should try baby powder on top of the deodorant doesnít work either

Try "Certain Dri":
https://www.certaindri.com/content/3...8aAlNREALw_wcB

It has worked miraculously for me - it stops you from perspiring, it is not just a deodorant. It is best to apply it at night when you are completely dry, just before bed. If you try to apply it while you are actually perspiring you may get a burning sensation - so just before work may be a bad idea if there's something stressful about it.

Try spraying white vinegar on your pit stains before you toss your uniforms in the washer.

If you want to use deodorant in addition to Certain Dri I'd put that on in the morning after your shower. Don't worry about the Certain Dri washing off in the shower (when you apply at night). Do NOT put it on in the morning - the directions say this and I've found that works best.

I want to try this!

Do you usually clean your underarms in any way before you apply it at night? The idea of applying something to dirty skin again and again for however long it lasts seems kind of gross, but I'm not sure if that would just cause a lot of irritation.

Well, this is an option....

there are actually pads that absorb perspiration and prevents staining of clothing in the armpit....they are worn by actors on stage or in movies.

They fit your armpit area, not sure how they attach....most of us would not want to be bothered but still, if you are desperate....

try internet search

Occasionally, depending what I'm wearing and doing and where I have to go, I've tried a trick I read in a women's magazine to use pantyliners and just stick them over the armpit area of the shirt. I didn't even know they made sweat pads, but it makes sense and I'm sure they go on the same way.
