Without naming any names, a friend of mine (okay, it’s me) has been a Mitchum deodorant man for years. The stuff works, but at the expense of quite a few shirts over the years that have gone to the trash with ugly yellowish stains in the pits. It was gross.

So a couple months ago I’d finally had enough. I decided someone must have already tackled the problem, and sure enough there it was buried on the very bottom row of the deodorant aisle: Speed Stick Stainguard for men and Lady Speed Stick Stainguard for the ladies.

I’m happy to say that the stuff does work as advertised and my shirts come out of the wash stain-free. I realize it’s not glamorous, but sometimes you feel compelled to share a tip with your fellow man (and woman).
