I have an heirloom Kanchipuram saree that I wore once for 3-4 hours. It is in pristine condition except for a food stain approximately 2 cm in diameter. I put talc on the spot and was able to lift off the oily part of the stain but there is still a light turmeric stain left behind. I don't want to dry clean the saree because as we all know the saree will never be the same again. I would like to wear it a handful more times before I have it sent for cleaning. All tips on Google are to use mild soap and water, but doesn't water discolor silk permanently? So short of dunking the whole saree in water I don't know how feasible that solution is. Anyone have any home remedies to get the stain out?
