What’s The Biggest Challenge That Comes With Making Turmeric Juice?

A writer once explained that turmeric has the quality of  ‘King Midas’. Everything turns to gold/yellow when it comes in contact with the spice.

Regardless of what you may be using it for, chances are either your hands or equipment will get a mustard-colored stain. That is perhaps one of the biggest challenge when it comes to making turmeric juice.

One way to get the stain out of your dishes, juicer or blender is by using a 2-to-1 hot water-to-white vinegar solution. Mix 2/3 cup of hot water and 1/3 cup of white vinegar and let the solution soak in the blender, dish or juicer overnight. Wash it the next day, and the stain will be gone.

To remove turmeric stains on your hands and fingernails, you need some lemon juice or hydrogen peroxide. There are two ways you can go about it:

  1. Rub your hands with either hydrogen peroxide or lemon juice; or 
  2. If your fingernails get stained, soak your fingers in one of the two liquids. If the stains persist, use a toothbrush to scrub them out of your nails. Remember to wash your hands with hot soapy water in between the soaks.

In some cases, it takes a few days for the stains to go away completely.
