I do lots of Indian cooking for which reason I use the spice “turmeric” often. (If you’re not familiar with turmeric, it’s derived from a bright orange/yellow root and ground into powder. The powder is yellow–really, really yellow–and it stains anything it touches.) A while back, I spilled a whole lot of soup made with turmeric on my kitchen carpet, which is light cream colored. I’ve not yet been able to get rid of the stain. Any suggestions? –Meagan
Funny you should write about this, as I was once prescribed a horrible yellow medicine that I spilled all over my motherís oriental rug (it happened to be primarily light cream colored, too). I expect the stain would be almost the same as turmeric. I cleaned it entirely and completely by dabbing it with straight 3 percent Hydrogen Peroxide, available in any pharmacy!
