You know, we don’t typically recommend excessive sweat tips. We prefer working toward an actual cure for excessive armpit sweat and hyperhidrosis.
But sometimes…You just gotta’ hide excessive sweat. Maybe you’ve got an important meeting and you’re nervous and your armpits are just sweating furiously…Just gotta’ hide it.
You’ve obviously started applying Mechanic Method (what’s this?) to stop the sweating. But as you know, it’s not instant. It takes time, diligence, and patience (TDP).
In this article…
We’re gonna’ school ya’ to some tips for excessive sweating and hyperhidrosis (underarm or other) that you can use NOW. They’re quick, temporary fixes. Not intended for long-term use.
Stick with Mechanic Method for a permanent cure for excessive sweating.
But for right now, we gotta’ HIDE IT and HOPE nobody notices…
The first of the tips is…
Bring More Than One Shirt
This is like a pit-sweater’s insurance policy. It’s easy to do, too.
Pop a couple extra shirts in your car. If you’re too young to drive pop one in your bookbag and and locker at school. Also, check out the Teen’s Sweating Corner.
Basically wherever you spend a lot of time, have extra shirts, just in case. This has saved our butts a million times.
It’s the best feeling in the world when you’re just drenched with this excessive perspiration and you can slip into a nice, dry shirt. Just sneak away to the bathroom and change it real quick.
Worried That People Are Going to Notice You Changed Shirts?
First of all, hate to break it to you, but nobody cares that much about you to notice.
Everybody’s too busy thinking about themselves.
But if somebody does notice, tell them that you’re the biggest clutz and you constantly spill stuff on your shirts.
Say it light-hearted and jokingly. Complain jokingly about how expensive drycleaning is these days.
Soon, you’ll get a funny reputation for spilling.
Speaking Of Shirts
Obviously light colors show sweat much more clearly.
Definitely stick to dark colors. Black is the best. The darker the better. Except ironically, white’s not too bad. Light pinks work, too.
And guys, if you’re thinking, “I can’t wear pink,” think again. Pink is the new stink. Chicks dig it. LOL.
Colors To Avoid if Mechanic Method Hasn’t Kicked in Yet…
Grays of any kind show excessive sweat clearly. I repeat: AVOID GRAY AT ALL COSTS!
Most blues suck as well (except super-dark blue).
And almost all lighter hues of colors are no bueno for heavy sweaters as well.
Choose Your Fabrics Wisely
Choice of fabric is crucial if you have excessive sweat.
Why? Because most perspiration is cyclical.
At one moment, you’ll be fine, maybe just sweating a little.
Then something causes you stress (anxiety, nervousness, anger, etc.) and it’s like, BOOM, somebody opened the flood gates. And then comes the profuse sweating.
But then after the stress passes, you’ll go back to the light sweating. (Or none at all, preferably.)
Certain fabrics dry much more quickly than others.
So if you have that episode where you sweat yourself silly, if you’re wearing the wrong fabric, you’ll be wet for a long time.
When we started noticing that certain fabrics stayed wet for longer, we did a little experiment. We took four shirts, made from different materials, and wetted the underarms with a tablespoon of water. We then timed to see how long each underarm took to dry.
Cotton takes the longest to dry. It takes over 3x longer to dry than the quickest drying fabric, polyester. 3x! Absolutely wear polyester if you have excess underarm sweat! That’s one of the best armpit sweat tips out there.
More About Shirts (and Dresses)
If you haven’t used them already, you should try underarm sweat shields.
They’re cheap and easy. Nobody will ever know you’re wearing them either. They do a great job at masking excessive sweat.
Also, wear button-up shirts.

This Is Not A “Lie”
When you lie down horizontally, sweat stops completely! This absolutely works, especially for underarm perspiration.
Something happens that causes sweat glands to relax and slow down.
It may not be practical to do this in certain places, but a lot of times it is.
Have a sheet or blanket around and you can stop and lie down pretty much anywhere there’s grass. Just close your eyes and nobody will know what you’re doing. They’ll think you’re sleeping!
Air It Out
Wear light, loose-fitting clothes to stop excessive sweat from showing up. Anytime there’s air flowing, position yourself in a way that your sweaty areas receive some air flow.
Like in the car when the window’s down, or the A/C’s working…You can position your armpits and body in such a way that they receive big-time air-flow.
Another armpit sweat tip is to wear a jacket, blazer or cardigan. They make you a bit hotter, but since they’re thick they’ll hide excessive sweat.
Many of these excess perspiration tips will work, but they’re kinda uncomfortable. Seek a permanent solution.
There’s so much more to life than sweating. You deserve to stop excessive sweat, control it, and prevent it from ever happening again!
You ABSOLUTELY can stop hyperhidrosis and excessive sweat from controlling your life.
