I don't understand why the aluminum chloride in my (typical) deodorants reacts with my perspiration and stains my shirts bright yellow. I also can't seem to remove this chemical reaction from my clothes and it's frustrating. Now, I use a natural salt stick, with no aluminum - just salt! - and I have no problems with stains. The salt deodorant does not last as long, but I prefer the results. What is the biochemical process involved here? Thanks!
