What Causes Yellow Armpit Stains?

Yellow armpit stains are primarily caused by a reaction between sweat and aluminium-based compounds in deodorants. The interaction forms yellow-coloured complexes that stain clothing.

Factors such as sweat composition, clothing material, and the pH of your skin contribute to the visibility and persistence of sweat stains on garments.
