    Basically my chinos had turmeric/curry stains on them (don't ask how) so I rubbed some lemon as shown on the internet. My mum washed them and omg the there are patches of white (white spots and patches) most of it is still light beige but the patches are still very noticeable. So how can I turn those patches back to light beige like the rest of the chinos colour without dye preferably.
    Remember I want white back to light beige not the other way round.
    It was put in a hot wash by the way. I read that alcohol may work but I am a Muslim so I don't want to buy alcoholic drinks. So are there any alcohol wipes or products with significant alcohol content that I can use and where can I get them from, bear in mind I live in London tower hamlets so i'm not gonna venture very far.

    Ok from the top:

    1. Best case - buy new trousers
    2. The fabric has had a bleaching type effect on it - you won't get that out. Best you can do is buy a wash in dye that you put in a washing machine with the garment - read the instructions carefully, you'll probably need to buy some salt as well. I think it's Dylon brand that most people use - that should sort it out - but make sure you tell everyone what you're doing and put the washing machine on rinse afterwards.
    3.What the hell, dude, you don't use booze to clean stains!
