How To Remove Various Stains From Silk Sarees

I suppose it's no surprise that South Indians and pattu sarees are intimately linked; after all, we can't separate them.Have you ever seen the beauty of those pattu sarees? They are absolutely stunning! We realize that these sarees are in our heart, despite the fact that they are kept in a cupboard. Unfortunately, we occasionally get stains on them. So here's a tutorial on how to remove stains from silk sarees.

  1. Oil Stains

The worst stains are those from oil. They almost never come off our clothes. If you can dust some talcum powder over the oil stain as soon as it appears, the powder will absorb all of the oil. After that, wash your silk saree in cold water to remove the stain.

  1. Food Stains

The famous and fragrant sambar! Yum! But, if it hits your saree, it's not so delicious. If this does happen, don't worry; simply soak the saree or pour some detergent over the stain and run it with your finger. Leave it for a while before washing it with cold water.

  1. Dried Stains

It's possible that the stains are impossible to remove after washing, and they dry up later on. In this situation, you can try soaking the pattu saree in water before wiping with lime juice to remove the marks. Otherwise, you may use petrol, but be careful not to burn yourself.

  1. Ink Stains

Ink stains are most common among teachers. Ink stains may appear to be difficult to remove, but they can all be undone with a little bit of warm water and petrol. Simply use some warm water and petrol to clean it up. If the ink remains stubborn, apply petrol to the area until it comes out.

  1. Coffee and Tea Stains

Coffee and tea stains are also prevalent. They appear to be tenacious, but they are easy to remove. When you notice the stain of coffee, try blotting it as much as possible. Then use a sponge to rub it clean, apply acid or lemon juice to the spot, and lather with dishwashing detergent!

  1. Some Storing  and Washing Tips

Before washing, soak the pattu saree in water for at least 30 minutes. Lime juice and gasoline are highly successful in removing stains, and they may be used on most of the stubborn stains. When storing the saree, place neem leaves in the folds. Also, avoid putting them in plastic containers since there wouldn't be any breathing room for the garment.
