We all know that Labor Day is basically all about the grub and if you don't believe that, you're lying to yourself. But, with great food comes epic stains, so you might want to invest in some non-stain shirts for Labor Day BBQs to avoid any embarrassing situations.
Picture the scene: You're enjoying the best hotdog you've ever had and a hottie walks past, distracting you mid-bite and making you spill ketchup all down your shirt. You can't go home because you already wasted your return fare on extra wine and there's no way you're trekking back to change. Things take a turn for the worst when aforementioned hottie makes eye contact, then quickly spots the stain on your shirt. Although imagined, if you're a messy eater, this kind of scenario could easily be an everyday occurrence in your life. But, what if I could tell you that you could avoid embarrassing stains and potentially ruining your favorite shirts forever?
Well, the future of technological clothing is here and there are already options for stain-resistant clothing on the market. Sound to good to be true? You'll definitely want to check out the following companies if you normally get more food and drink on your clothes than in your mouth.
It's got to be said that there appear to be more companies making stain-resistant shirts for men, which seems a little unfair. However, considering that many men wear shirts for work, it kind of makes sense. Vardama is one such company, that uses EQUA-TEK™ technology to make their fabrics spill and stain repellant, breathable, and more. At the time of writing, Vardama sells shirts, suits, and neckties but nothing for women, but it's obvious they're making great advances in technological clothing.
So what about options for womenswear? Well there's a bunch of stain-resistant shirts by Tri-Mountain, available in a range of colors, that might tickle your fancy. According to their Amazon product listing they feature, "DuPontTM Teflon® fabric protector to resist stains" which sounds very promising.

Don't worry if you're wanting to rock a more casual vibe at your Labor Day BBQ, you're definitely not limited to wearing button down shirts for the occasion. Threadsmiths specialize in hydrophobic essential apparel. Their T-shirts for women are currently available in black and grey, with white being sold out right now. It's safe to say that any gal would benefit from having one of each color in her closet, because everyone has a use for a basic tee.
Lastly, if none of these options tickle your fancy, you can actually make any shirt stain-proof with a single product called Liquiproof. Yes, you read that correctly. According to The Telegraph Liquiproof is, "...a non-toxic, eco-friendly coating that makes anything it touches waterproof..." The Telegraph spoke with Liquiproof founder Caner Veli, who appeared on the BBC's Dragon's Den and secured funding for his product, who said, "It uses nanotechnology to bind to particles at a nanoscopic level," which is seriously impressive.
Liquiproof Fabric Protection can be used on an array of clothing and accessories from jackets to footwear and the cherry on the cake is it's non-hazardous too. If there's something specific you want to wear for your Labor Day BBQ, it'll definitely be worth getting your hands on a bottle of Liquiproof Protector before the big day. Here's to a stain-free, less embarrassing life! Although let's be clear, Liquiproof can't help you with getting tongue-tied or tripping up in front of your crush if you're a little clumsy.
So there you have it, a bunch of great options to help you be able to fully enjoy your food at your Labor Day BBQ and quit worrying about spilling it down your shirt!
