Pit Stains and how to avoid them.


Hey all. I haven't been around much lately, but I'm portraying Superman this weekend to raise money for charity. Last time i was in the suit for an extended period of time I developed monstrous pit stains. How can I avoid that this time around?

Arm & Hammer anti-perspirant and deodorant with baking soda..... it's the best stuff I've used and I highly recommend it. :up

Or you can just really pad out the suit in the problem areas and hope the padding is absorbent....

No problem emoticon

Been in the same position and spent about 45 minutes trying to blow-dry the suit during an appearance.

It was fun trying to explain to kids why Batman has a sweat line about 1.5" below the tail of the bat. :rollin

I've never tried it but they now sell "clinical strength" antiperspirants in stores. Expensive. Like triple what the regular stuff costs. But supposed to be much more effective.

I usually have a huge dry area where my cape doesn't cover me if I'm indoors, and I'm soaked in sweat where it does (which is 75% of me)
I think I need to make a new cape.

Stratigically placed cough Panty liners perhaps?
I've been informed they work wonders inside a cowl to mop up sweat.
Apparently they also have an adhesive backing to stop them sliding around.
Don't know how comfortable it would be with a couple of those under your armpits though emoticon

Glad to see you around again what what.
