    Because buying another shirt after getting an oil stain just sounds like way too much work.


    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

    1. A pair of stay-white jeans equipped with a special denim technology that literally repels stains and spills β€” just in case you wanna defy fashion rules and wear white after Labor Day.

    You rebel.

    Promising Review: "Wore them all day to a baseball tournament, drinks and dinner, in the rain, walking around, to a casino and more drinks and held up great! Not only did they repel both stains and water but they also didn't sag! Yay!" –SavLom

    Get them from Old Navy for $40. Sizes: 0-20.

    2. A long-sleeve twill shirt made with stain-release fabric so you can simply wipe away those ketchup spills with a little soap and water.

    Promising Review: "These are great shirts. They wear well and wash well. They are good for office and casual wear, and they have a variety of colors. I usually iron them once and then them wear for a few days without additional ironing. Right now these are the only shirts I wear, and they cost about a third of what I can get at a department store. Plus, my size is always in stock. Finally, the twill weave keeps the shape of the shirt longer as opposed to broadcloth or oxford. With the button-down collar you always look great." –Robert Middleton

    Get it from Amazon for $13.55+. Sizes: XS-6XL. Available in 16 colors.

    3. A stretchy shirt that'll hold its shape throughout a day of sitting, standing, and being an active human being, all while staying stain-resistant!

    Promising Review: "I love the Riley shirts for work and this one is no exception." –FSUDanielle

    Get it from Banana Republic for $68. Sizes: 0-16.

    4. A twill utility shirt with soil-release finish to keep stains away and make it easy to throw into the wash after a long day of looking fabulous.

    Promising Review: "I don't know what this material is, but I am filthy and clumsy. I knocked two pints of heavy cream directly on myself and it bounced right off. It doesn't wrinkle or fade β€” all my clothes should be made of this." –tattootania

    Get it from Amazon for $10.18+. Sizes: XS-4XL. Available in six colors.

    5. A pair of chino pants that are crazy comfy and will be able to endure spilling soda or other wet things when you're out and about.

    Promising Review: "I really enjoy wearing this pair of pants. No need to soak them in the laundry if I ever get stains on them, as the fabric is stain-proof." –Matt

    Get them from Eddie Bauer for $42. Sizes: 20-48. Available in six colors.

    6. A pair of uniform pants to repel spills and stains just in case a food fight breaks out and your kid is smack-dab in the middle of the action.

    All the lazy people unite in praise and astonishment.

    Get it from Ably for $60. Sizes: XS-XXL. Available in five colors.

    8. A blouse perfect for going to brunch, spilling your mimosa on the front by an accident, and pretending nothing ever happened. Tiny unstainable fibers keep spills above the actual fabric. / George Evan Andreadis

    Get them from Elizabeth and Clarke for 40+ each. Sizes: 00-18.

    9. A dress shirt infused with equa-tek technology, making this fancy-ass shirt spill-repellant and stain-resistant while never losing its softness.

    Promising Review: "Honestly, I haven't needed to wear any of my other white dress shirts for work or outings. A great fit, and the stain resistance is amazing!" –Gemm

    Get it from Bloomingdales for $125. Sizes: 14.5-18.5.

    10. A useful stain-resistant polo shirt so your little one can be as carefree as they want! Kids are messy. You know it, I know it, and even they know it β€” so why even fight it?

    Promising Review: "These shirts have a great fit and are true to size." –Lisa

    Get it from Target for $9. Sizes: XS-XL. Available in three colors.

    11. Slacks that won't get wrinkled in the wash, which means saving money at the dry cleaners to iron and remove stains you don't even remember spilling on your pants in the first place.

    Promising Review: "The pants really are wrinkle resistant, which is great when you never seem to have to the time to iron anything. I wasn't sure how well the permanent crease down the front would hold up over time, but after a little over a month of regular wear, and several wash cycles, it still looks the same as the day I got it in the mail. They're also stain and water resistant, which makes any spilled liquid wipe away with no trouble at all." –John K

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+. Sizes: 29-42.

    12. A crisp and casual collared shirt. It can honestly be a staple of your preppy dreams! With dry-blend and moisture-wicking technology, it protects against excessive sweat and random food spilling. Win!

    Promising Review: "I need to wear a white or black polo for being a Starbucks barista, and since I know it is a messy job I searched for a black one. The polo fits great and is durable. I only bought two of them to alternate during the work week, and they have held up well in terms of fading and normal wear and tear. The location of the button at the neck is perfect for being modest and professional while still allowing me to feel casual." –Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $6.47+. Sizes: S-3XL. Available in 16 colors.

    13. A microfiber travel blazer made of Teflon-treated fabric so accidental spills can just roll off and you can just keep moving on with your day.

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+. Sizes: 6-20. Available in seven colors.

    14. A stain-resistant denim jacket so your bundle of joy be fashionable and clean at the same damn time! Babies are adorable until they look like a mess.

    And you thought it would be an impossible concept!

    Get it from The Gap for $44.95. Sizes: 12-18 months-5 years.

    15. A sweat-proof undershirt with cool pads to soak up the extra moisture under your arms, because pit-stains are a fucking drag and should be eradicated.

    Promising Review: "These have literally changed my life, no exaggerating here. I used to wear dark colors because I knew if I wore a lighter colored shirt I would just have massive pit stains. I've been able to wear shirts I haven't worn in years confidently knowing that I'm in the clear! It's so nice to be able to lift my arms up without embarrassment or give someone a hug without them feeling wetness, yuck! I can't say enough good things about these." –Stephen D.

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99. Sizes: XS-3XL. Also available in black.
