How to Remove Underwear Stains

Baking soda is an effective agent for removing stains and odors from underwear. It is a natural product that won't bleach the underwear or cause irritation, but will clean it without causing harm to the fabric. When dealing with bodily secretions, it's important to wear gloves to protect yourself from germs and diseases. Wash the garment immediately after treating it with baking soda to kill the germs and clean it more thoroughly.
