Wearing shirts it’s a must, especially if your job requires a dress code. Even when the temperature is rising in thermometers! And sweating is the main cause of staining your shirt collars, turning yellowish. The problem is that yellowish stains are very hard to remove if you wash your shirt like usual, because sweat is impregnated in the fabric. And is actually forbidden to use bleach to whiten it!
Searching all over the internet and in my “grandma’s memory” I was told that shirt collars can be easily washed out of yellow sweat stains if you hand wash it separately, and then putting them in the washing machine.
