How to remove turmeric stains from white kitchen sink and countertops?

If you’ve got a turmeric stain on your kitchen countertops or sinks such as this one below, the remedy that would likely fix this is to a bleach like Clorox disinfecting bleach. It works magic!

All you need to do is get some disinfecting Clorox bleach from a nearby store and follow the procedures I’m about to highlight below.

Step 1: Prepare the Sink

Ensure the sink is dry and plug the sink in order to avoid flushing away the bleach solution.

Step 2: Dilute the Clorox Bleach:

Put on a pair of gloves to protect your hands from the bleach. Then, dilute the Clorox bleach by mixing one part bleach with four parts water in a small container or spray bottle.

This dilution helps to reduce the strength of the bleach and minimize the risk of damage to the sink surface.

However, to make the solution stronger, you can add some more bleach to it.

Step 3: Apply the Bleach Solution:

Carefully pour or spray the diluted Clorox bleach solution directly onto the turmeric stains in your white kitchen sink. Ensure that the stains are completely saturated with the bleach solution.

Step 4: Let it Sit

Allow the bleach solution to sit on the turmeric stains for at least 30 minutes. This gives the bleach time to penetrate and break down the pigments in the stains.

Spray the bleach spray on every 30 minutes and do not rinse until the stain is gone. Turmeric is tough to get out, so i use it a lot and it needs to soak to fully remove the stains.

The key is just letting it sit for several hours until the stain is gone. Then you can scrub and rinse the sink or countertop afterwards.

How to Remove Turmeric Stains from Clothes and Fabrics

1. Act Fast

Blot the stain with a clean cloth to absorb as much turmeric as possible. Avoid rubbing, as this can spread the stain. Rinse the stained area under cold water.

This helps to flush out the turmeric and prevents it from setting into the fabric fibers. Running the water from the back of the stain can help push it out more effectively.

2. Apply Dish Soap

Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap, hand sanitizer or liquid laundry detergent onto the stain.

Dish soap is effective in breaking down oily components in the turmeric stain. Allow the soap to penetrate the fabric for a few minutes before rinsing.

This gives the soap time to work on loosening the stain from the fibers.

3. Launder and Dry

Wash the garment in the washing machine with your regular laundry detergent and a scoop of oxygen-based stain remover.

Hot water can help to further break down and remove the remaining stain. Air dry the garment if possible, as heat from the dryer can set any remaining stain.

Check the stained area before drying to ensure that the stain is completely gone.
