I don't think I could get dressed in the morning if it weren't for my stash of white tanks tops. They're my wardrobe staple--perfect on their own in the summer or layered under sweaters and button downs in the winter. I have about five to ten in rotation at all times and every season I search for the perfect white tank to replace the dingy ones from the previous season (no small feat since retailers are constantly changing the cut of their basic pieces). So, when I was pitched a new product called Deo-Go that promised to remove ugly pit stains (which aren't stains at all I learned but rather deodorant build up), I had to try it. Anything to squeeze some extra wear out of my favorite articles of clothing!
I took home my 9-ounce bottle of Deo-Go and sprayed it on every white tank top I own, making sure that both sides of the armholes were soaked. After waiting about 20 minutes, I scrubbed the wet areas with an old toothbrush (the directions call for a short-bristle brush) and watched the two active ingredients (non-ionic surfactants and hydrochloric acid) literally dissolve the deodorant build up. I was so impressed, I decided to put Deo-Go to the test with my husband's gross white t-shirts and some rather stained navy blue shirts he wears to the gym as well. Then, I washed everything as normal. Wow, did it work! The colored shirts took a second treatment but the entire deodorant residue came out.
Just so you know, I'm not alone; Deo-Go gets mostly positive reviews from about 15 users at Drugstore.com (not bad for a product that hit the market only a few months ago) and earned a seal of approval from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. Deo-Go costs about $10 per bottle, which according to the manufacturer should be enough product to treat around 15 shirts.
