Does ironing baby powder onto the armpits of your shirts prevent them from getting sweat marks ?

In brief: Sorry...
...I must have slept through the armpit ironing class in med school.
Your local dry cleaner might know the answer to that, but doctors are traditionally bad with textile-related questions.

Per the laundry person in the home: wear undershirts to protect the dress shirts; moisten and rub a bar of Fels Naphtha soap into the stain and launder; or try pretreating the area with an aspirin disolved in water. Repeat any of the above as needed. Once the stain is heated (dryer or iron, it is set permanently - buy a new shirt).
