To remove tricky curry stains use a bleach for instance a mild solution of hydrogen peroxide and warm water.

Leave on the stain to react and oxidise the dyes which will turn them colourless.

Then wash off and rinse with cool water.

The net effect should be that the curry stain has gone and the colour of your fabric, carpet or rug will have returned to normal!
