Turmeric is an ingredient in most Indian dishes. A spill will often result in a permanent mark on your child’s dress. But you don’t have to discard your child’s party dress if you know the right way to treat stains. Knowing how to wash and store clothes properly will help extend the life of your kids’ clothes.

Treating turmeric stains as soon as you spot them is important. If you delay cleaning the stain it will set in and become difficult to remove. Most stains can be easily removed with hot water treatment. But turmeric stains need to be tackled with a proper cleaning agent. Follow the steps given below to remove turmeric stains effortlessly.

Ingredients to Keep Handy:

a) Detergent

b) Damp cloth

  1. Step 1: Apply Detergent

    Cover the stain with detergent. You can try using Surf Excel Easy Wash for this. Let the detergent rest on the stain for 10 minutes. 

  2. Step 2: Dab with a Cloth

    Dab the detergent from the garment using a damp cloth. Do not rub the stain as it will only spread it further. Blot the stain gently until you completely remove it from the fabric. 

  3. Step 3: Rinse

    Wash the garment in cold water. Do not wring to remove excess water. Wrap the clothing in a towel and press gently to remove excess moisture.

  4. Step 4: Dry

    Do not put your child’s clothes in a dryer. The heat will cause discolouration. Flat-dry them instead. Sunlight is an excellent natural bleach.

Kids are messy eaters and you can never be too careful with them. Use these steps to bid goodbye to turmeric stains effortlessly!
