Got Curry Stains on Your Saree? Don’t Worry, We’ve Got Your Back

Even a drop of gravy is enough to ruin your beautiful saree. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you have to throw it away. We’re going to help you get rid of those curry stains in the easiest possible way.

Use this simple hand-washing method to get rid of curry stains from your saree.

Don’t scrub on the stain vigorously because it can affect the shine and lustre of your saree.

Step 1:

Evenly sprinkle 1 tbsp. of baking soda or 2 tbsp. of cornstarch on the stain and wait for 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 2:

Next, take 1 tbsp. of detergent for clothes mixed with 1 cup of water, dip a clean cloth in it and dab the stain with the solution in a circular motion. The curry stain should disappear from your saree.

In case the stain lingers, here’s another process to try.

Step 1:

Prepare a mixture by adding 1 tbsp. of dishwashing gel and 1 tbsp. of vinegar to 2 cups of warm water. Make sure you mix it well.

Step 2:

Using a clean cloth, dab the stain with this solution until the fabric absorbs the liquid.

Step 3:

Take another clean cloth, dip it in cold water and wipe the affected patch to remove the cleaning solution.

By now, the stain should have come off. Once that happens, wash your saree as usual, but remember to use only cold water, as this helps to keep the colour of your saree intact.

These steps will help you remove the stain efficiently and make your saree look brand new again!
