from a cream leather sofa? sad

Eek!

I would ring a professional company to come and quote you for it.

The problem with pale leathers is that they are essentially painted or coated. The dye can rub off really easily.

Oh.

I think if the stain is turmeric based you are screwed.

I agree call a professional leather cleaning company - I think trying something yourself may well make it worse.

I would also suggest really shouting at the person who dropped the curry.

I have got a curry stain out of a cream leather boot with bright sunshine, worth a try?

It was my dad while kindly babysitting for us. So shouting not an option ;). Oh well sad

Managed to remove most of it with indelible ink remover! Only very faint Mark left.

Thanks for your help thanks

My DP used to have a cream leather sofa, and his young son scribbled all over it with black biro.

Nowt got it off.

Cream sofas are a baaaaad idea with children (and curry eating dads) around.

The indellible ink remover is pretty good with biro and now turmeric is seems!

Plus scrubbing with a tooth brush.

You could probably get the company who made it to come and paint that bit for a charge.

Worth emailing them. Turmerics a nightmare.

Milton Sterilising fluid is supposed to be very good indeed on curry stains

I know this is a very old thread but I was googling and THANK YOU! I just cleaned turmeric stains out of our cream leather sofa using a crushed up wet milton tablet. Saved my life!!Now no one will know...

Thanks so much for these suggestions. When DH dropped curry container on pale blue carpet, I thought I'd tried everything, nothing moved it, so am putting these suggestions in household book.
