How to Avoid Deodorant Marks

Thank you Dove for sponsoring this post. Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant goes on invisible, leaving no white marks on 100 colors of clothing.

As a color enthusiast, there’s only one thing that excites me more than talking about color: wearing them. But the more vibrant a color is, the more likely it is to show white marks left behind by traditional stick deodorant. And there are few setbacks more frustrating than finding white deodorant marks on clothing when getting dressed in the morning; if you are in the 65% of women who wish they had more time to get ready in the morning and are often racing to get out the door, the kind of antiperspirant you choose is critical to being punctual.

I’ve partnered up with Dove again to share a new addition to their “Dry Spray” line of antiperspirant: the Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant, which goes on invisible, leaving no white marks on 100 colors and keeping you fresh all day. (You can read my “holiday party survival guide” here, if you are interested in why I started using spray antiperspirant.)

When trying to get out deodorant marks from clothing in the past, I looked up what exactly was in the deodorant that had left its footprint behind, and learned that most deodorants contain sodium stearate and stearyl alcohol, both of which are white solids that are products of stearic acid, a naturally occurring fatty acid. While deodorant marks can be removed with a host of household items: used dryer sheets, cotton socks, makeup sponges, etc., it is much more efficient to just use a non-staining antiperspirant when you get dressed.

For fun (and in the name of experimentation), I sprayed the Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant on a dozen different clothing items to test out the product’s claims. And it really doesn’t leave a mark or even a film. Dove seems to have figured out that finely milling aluminum chlorohydrate and adding a masking oil to the formula combine to create a product that doesn’t stain clothing, which I thought was really neat.
