One of India's most loved festivals, Holi is here. The festival that celebrates togetherness is incomplete without some colours.
As much as we love the fun parties, we hate how the Holi colours get so difficult to remove from the clothes. At times, it can get almost impossible to wash off the colour. Well, don't worry! Play Holi to the fullest because we have some quick hacks which will help you remove the Holi colours easily.
Try these quick hacks and get rid of the stubborn Holi colours. Read on.
Lemons are acidic in nature which makes them an effective ingredient in washing off the colour stain. Soak the stained lemon juice for 15 minutes and then scrub with your hands. Further, wash it like you regularly do. If you have stains all over the outfit, you can prepare lemon juice in a large quantity, mix it with water in the bucket and then dip your outfit in it. Let it rest for about 30 minutes to 1 hour and then wash as usual.
In a bucket full of cold water, add half a cup of white vinegar and 1 teaspoon of any washing powder. Mix well. Add all the holi colour stained clothes to it. The vinegar helps in pulling out the colour from the clothes. (tips to whiten shirts)
Ammonia Based Cleaner
Do you have a glass cleaner spray at home? Usually, they are ammonia-based and help in cleansing the colour stains. You can spray some of it on the stain and keep it for a few minutes. Take a towel or tissue paper and blot the stain. Wash the cloth and wash it as you do regularly.
If your clothes are heavily stained then make sure you wash them as soon as the party is over because if you keep them for longer, the colour stays for longer and it gets really difficult to remove it.
All the chemicals that you will use to wash your stained clothes can be harmful for your skin and can lead to allergies/infections. Make sure you wear gloves while using these chemicals.
After cleansing the stain with the chemicals, make sure you wash the outfit well with normal water.
Do not wash clean and stained clothes together as they can further make your job difficult. Also, if you have more than one stained outfit then wash separately or it can make the colours more stubborn.
Never dry the stained garment or it can make the stain permanent.
Avoid using chlorine bleach on coloured outfits or it can disolour the fabric.
These tips work for outfits that can be washed in a washing machine or by hand. However, if there are any outfits that are advised to be washed by the dry cleaners then take it to them as early as possible.
We hope this guide helps you remove all the stubborn Holi colours from your beautiful festive outfits. For more such tips and tricks, stay tuned!
