Dhumalla Sweat Stains

Recommended Posts

Gurfateh Ji,

Genuine question:

How does one remove sweat stains from their dastaar material?

I tie a dhumalla sahib (blue in colour) and the crossed larhs (over the ears) and the chand lahr (across the forehead) stain with sweat. (Please note, I don't have excessive sweat issues lol).

I have tried hand washing and machine washing with different modes but they're still visible. 

Anyone experience the same issues?

Any solutions?

Thank you.

Vaheguru!

non-bio usually has extra bleaching agents to tackle stains so will fade a dark dastar

My suggestion is liquid colour-friendly biological /delicates detergent and half cup of white vinegar ,wash as per normal , the smells and stain should be released from the material (another plus is the vinegar will help colour retention) . use lukewarm (kosa) water temp. Don't use lemon juice as may bleach when drying if hit by sun .

Yes I was thinking too about the non bio fading the colour. And the natural ingredient of vinegar would be better than the strong bleaching agents. 

I've amended my post and deleted the links as they seem OTT.

Thank you for this. I use the liquid non-bio Persil. I will try the colour friendly biological one with vinegar as per your suggestion.

A quick question though, when adding the white vinegar, do you add it into the actual machine (where the clothes go) or where the liquid goes?

Much appreciated.

When i was young and i relied on my mum to do the washing, she use to put some washing powder (non-bio) in a bucket with warm water and soak the pagh for an hour or two and then rinse in cold water and just hand them to dry, i still do this, might seem a little old skool but it does the trick and the material tends to fade less, it also depends on the material you use, i use f-74 mal mal so you have to be a little more careful because it's not has heavy as other materials.

use the shortest wash cycle on your machine temp 30 or less if possible .I've been using persil purple for years in our home with no spoiling of colours , add the vinegar in with the detergent liquid. If you still have problems Mr Muscle SHOUT stain remover is the next step , this is my go to for all kinds of stains as it doesn't damage fabric or colours . I'm guessing your are talking about about salt tide marks on your dastar , my bro used to have the same problem when he was working in a hot environment .

No problems veer ji 

another tip if you are washing more than one dastar at a time get some laundry mesh bags to keep them from wrapping and knotting around each other in the machine .

    • There's been another "short circuit" of electricity being blamed for burnt saroops of SGGS Ji in rajastan. There's been many cases like these over the past few years all over india and most of them get passed off as short circuits of electricity for some reason. Something very dodgy is going on and i reckon the granthi's and gurdwara commitee's are involved somehow covering up something recent incident https://www.sikh24.com/2020/05/25/rajasthan-four-holy-saroops-of-sri-guru-granth-sahib-ji-burnt-due-to-short-circuit/ past incidents https://www.sikh24.com/2014/04/29/guru-granth-sahib-saroops-damaged-in-short-circuit-blaze/ http://singhstation.net/2014/07/sri-guru-granth-sahib-ji-saroop-agan-bhet-in-suspicious-incident-in-batala/ https://sikhsiyasat.net/2015/06/01/four-saroops-of-guru-granth-sahib-burnt-in-fire/ https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/amritsar/3-saroop-of-Guru-Granth-Sahib-destroyed-in-fire/articleshow/53580315.cms https://dailypost.in/news/punjab/fire-break-gurudwara-sahib-gurdaspur/ https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/archive/jalandhar/short-circuit-at-gurdwara-5-copies-of-guru-granth-sahib-burnt-640913 https://www.hindustantimes.com/punjab/short-circuit-at-gurdwara-3-copies-of-guru-granth-sahib-burnt/story-gGThbO645q3NK4h1tMO8xL.html https://www.sikh24.com/2019/09/23/sacrilege-in-rajasthan-holy-saroop-of-sri-guru-granth-sahib-ji-desecrated-near-sri-ganganagar/#.Xs8d7tJ686Y
    • Exactly, I dont want any coalition between Sikhs and any Muslim group. We need to stick up for ourselves and don't need the bad reputation of muslims hanging over us.
    • Yup india is pretty safe at the moment. It can crush the afghan taliban easily if they tried it on hence why they admitted they wont interfere in indian affairs. Modi's india is embolden at the moment and can even take on china and pakistan at the same time if it was a conventional war. If it came down to nukes then no ones gonna win in that only be loosers everywhere. So i think all the worldly powers have abandoned any support to separatists groups knowing theres not much chance of them seceding from a pretty stable and rising hindu nationalist india union. From Sikhs perspective we should keep out of any hinduisation thats going on effecting kashmir or indian muslims because the goal of islam is to convert and wipe non-muslims including sikhs out eventually. Whereas the goal of hindu nationalists isnt really one of wiping Sikhs and Sikhism or Buddhists and buddhism out they are pretty tolerant of dharmic faiths they just want to be top dogs in the native area they been living for past thousands of years.
    • Yes the only way is if an even bigger power helps the militant group but India is not the same nation it was back in the 80s. Nukes change things big time. No country will do this against India. Economically India is doing ok so it isn't going to collapse like the USSR.
    • You know if the present day buddhists were around in afghanistan before they lost it to islamic arab invaders i dont think the jihadis would have stood a chance. The buddhists of today are far more militant and extreme they have a crazy nationalist mindset same with Sinhalese buddhists of sri lanka when they fought with the sri lankan  hindu tamils both were as vicious as each other. This idea that we have of the peaceful buddhist is probably misplaced even their docile monks are quite militant. We just need to look at our own history during khalsa raj when the Sikh army researched ladkh and wanted to take tibet they faced quite strong opposition from the buddhist Tibetan troops. Both sides eventually called a truce and signed a treaty i believe respecting each others boundaries and borders. Which to this day that treaty is used by china to lay claim to various parts of tibet and india as inheritors of that land. ( sources: The Sino-Indian Border Disputes, by Alfred P. Rubin, The International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Vol. 9, No. 1. (Jan. 1960), pp. 96–125. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Indian_border_dispute)
