Prevent Underarm Stains and Keep Them Away

LifeHacker.com posted an article on Getting Rid of Underarm Stains. Here is the original article in a nut shell:
These are great tips on treating but how can you avoid Underarm [Pit] Stains in the future? The answer is Disposable Dress Shields.
Dress Shields are highly absorbent, and will protect your garments from staining. They are waterproof, non-woven fabric with polyester knit backs. In our Supply Store we sell Stain Stoppers™ that are more than just dress shields; they prolong the life of any garment, regardless of material and prevent permanent odors on your clothing. Soft and comfortalbe, they apply and remove in seconds, no need to sew or pin. Taped side adheres to garment. Highly absorbent, they are recommended by physicians to protect against deodorant allergies.

I sure hope you all enjoyed our very thorough photo essay. All of this and more is available for sale tomorrow. Please come and buy it. ;)

A very special thanks to our three friday interns: Stephanie, Jessica and Randi. They rock so hard. If you own a costume house you should hire them. If you are on a show you should hire them. If you want to have some hard-working, awesome to be around, smart, talented, really-good-under-pressure-and-skilled-at-working-with-crazies (ie: me) girls on your crew: you should hire them. Thanks ladies! To you we leave this commenorative photo.

Well for the time being...
Peace out homestars!
