What about attaching pads to the armpits of clothing? You could make your own pads to custom fit various shirts, tops and attach them with velcro. Make them with cotton next to the skin and a nonporous fabric next to the shirt.
Pads would work, the most common problem is a chemical reaction with your sweat and the deodorant you're using. Rarely, you could have a bacteria on your skin that is causing it.

I've been learning how to farm and garden. Living in a farming community, I find there are plenty of people who are willing to share their first-hand knowledge.

I also want to learn how to can, both meats and vegetables, and how to make homemade jam.

If you are getting sweat stains, you really need to talk to your doctor. Sweat should not stain under normal circumstances, and there's no reason to live with it.
Oh, it's not armpit stains. It's just from working hard. I will try the ammonia.

Very very important skill to learn. I've actually been getting myself to the range a lot more than usual lately. I want to be able to defend my family. My husband is a great shot, but cannot always be around.

I'm pretty good with my glock 17. I can load my mag and drop it with one hand quick. Need to get faster at it. Develop muscle memory so you dont have to think about it..

After you learn how to shoot a target straight..then you need to learn how to shoot in a stressful situation. because the bad guys are not going to stand still like a target. would like to take some kinda of class for that like you run drop and shoot, run etc. That is when it really matters...when your hands are shaking, adrenaline rushing...you still have to be able to fire straight. I haven't found anyone to teach me that yet tho.

I'm not as comfortable with my rifle or AR - but I need to get better.
Handgun is just a backup weapon. I should be more efficient with my rifle.
I need a lotta practice there...If only I had more free time!

hubby is wanting me to learn more about guns. not my favorite topic. i have my ccw and can shoot. he wants me to at least learn about reloading and such. i see where that will be handy, but it's not really my bag. i'm more into gardening, canning, dehydrating, sewing, etc. i do want to learn myself about holistic medicine and that. i used to be an emt and him a paramedic, so good in the first aid department too.

If he wants you to learn all about gun powder, reloading shells, etc., then tell him that you'll learn to do it if he will learn to can food or construct a winter coat.....

it could the aluminium salts in your deo reacting with your sweat, which don't fully dissolve when you wash - so try to find ones without aluminium in, or use spray rather than stick/roll on. If you can't find those, or don't like them (it's the aluminium that is actually the antiperspirant) then wash your shirts on the highest heat setting they can handle. I have read somewhere that meat tenderiser can work if you rub it into the stains :/ although I haven't tried it.

If it's a problem with excessive sweating, you can get this stuff called Driclor which you put on while you sleep then wash off in the morning and apply your normal deo. I had a friend that used it and he said it was really good.

Hope it helps!

Having better luck on the sewing. Got a small crafting machine to help with my quilt projects. (I don't make big ones, just center pieces and things like that.) It seems to work a lot better than the bigger one, and is a lot less touchy.

Good idea about him learning canning and sewing but I have to admit he knows the basics. He can even darn socks.

I always wanted to shoot.
My first date with a certain guy was skeet shooting. I got 8 out of 10 with his shotgun.
Not bad for a first time.
Then
Before I met DH, a guy I used to date took me out and let me shoot his hand guns at a tree stump 15-20 ft away. That stump was gone is not time! LOL I asked him if I should back up some more, and he said if you ever need to shoot someone, this is where you want to be.

and that's all I got.
DH has guns, though, so I'll probably practice some more.
To me, a gun is just another tool, and one that's fairly important to master.

Still need to learn to clean, butcher, and feild dress critters. Know nothing about that.

Took a Motorcycle class last spring, and got my license.
Need more practice on that.

and need to learn bee keeping, chicken raising, canning and more gardening stuff.

Plan to start learnin it all [not finish it all but start] when we get moved to our new home [wherever that may be]

Default Want to Learn

I want to learn animal traps, how to make and use. I want to learn how to go from dead animal to meal on the table. Be it fish, deer, pig, chicken, or what-have-you, I need to know how to do that.
I also want to learn how to use the left-overs, such as the pelt, or hooves or whatever is left over. I know the Native Americans used every little piece of every animal they killed. They saw it not only as waste, but as disrespect to the animal's spirit and to mother earth.
I hate waste now, I can't imagine waste after SHTF.

In general, I want to be able to feed myself and my family no matter what.

Start with fish-- fish are easy. Unless it's catfish (you peel them) or trout (my cousin swears you should always work a trout from the tail), you make a slit behind the gill, make a slit down the back, and then use the knife to basically peel the meat off the carcass. Don't bother gutting them first-- I used to, but it actually makes it harder, especially with little fish like bluegill. Use big fish for fillets, and little fish that don't make nice fillets for fish soup, fish chowder, fish bake, fish sticks, et cetera.

Toss the carcass in a 5-gallon bucket. When you're all done, fill the bucket with enough water to cover the carcasses a few inches deep, cover it, and let the whole mess stand on the porch (the BACK porch-- it stinks!!) for a couple of days, and then pour the whole mess on the garden (be careful not to hit the plants if you have anything in-- I burned up a couple watermelon plants like that last summer).

Either dig the carcasses into the soil (they'll be pretty soft by then), throw them in the woods (if you're out in the boonies), or put them in the trash. Don't leave them lay-- gross (except to critters-- all kinds of critters).

Alternatively, they say the Native Americans used to just bury the whole carcass in the corn field.

Either way you slice it, free fertilizer.

I have gotten better at crocheting over the past year and have started making fancier scarves. Perhaps I will try some granny squares one of these days.
