Turmeric, a washing machine and Surf laundry products.


While turmeric is essential to Indian cooking, it really doesn’t complement your clothes. All it takes is a small pinch of turmeric to latch onto your clothes and stain it ochre yellow. While turmeric stains are strong, they aren’t impossible to eliminate. The key to fighting the stain is acting quickly and using the right techniques.






  1. Prepare a baking soda paste: Mix a couple of spoonfuls of baking soda with a little water to form a thick paste.
  2. Beat the stain with the paste: Apply the paste on the stain in a generous layer and scrub the stain using a soft toothbrush. Baking soda is mildly alkaline in nature, which is what allows it to cut through the stain.
  3. Rinse and wash: Rinse the cloth using cold water. Make sure to not use hot water as it might cause the stain to settle into the yarn. After thoroughly rinsing the cloth, wash it as you regularly would in the washing machine. Make sure to use Surf excel Matic for best results. You can also opt for the Surf excel Matic liquid instead of the detergent. Simply fill the cap of the bottle with the solution and pour part of it on the stain and rest in the machine’s detergent inlet. Rub the liquid onto the stain with the attached scrubber and toss the garment for a wash in the machine as usual! We’re sure your stained clothing will come out spotlessly clean.

You should always be careful in the kitchen, but with Surf excel Matic, a dab of turmeric here and there is not going to be a cause of concern anymore!
