For Chocolate Stains

  1. Always read the care label on your T-shirt before attempting stain removal. Cotton, linen, polyester and spandex are all suitable for standard washing methods.
  2. Gently remove chocolate stain with a knife or spoon. Be extra careful not to spread the chocolate onto other areas of the tee or rub it deeper into the fabric.
  3. To stop the stain from further entering into the fabric, rinse the back of the stain with cold, running water.
  4. Apply a small portion of laundry detergent to the chocolate stain and leave to soak in cold water for between 15-30 minutes.
  5. Wash the fabric as normal and do not dry the t-shirt until the stain has been fully removed.
  6. Repeat step 4 if necessary

For Tea or Coffee Stains

  1. 2
  1. Rinse the stain as soon as you can, running the t-shirt under a stream of warm water through the stain. But avoid using hot water as direct heat can speed-up the stain setting into the fabric.
  2. Apply laundry detergent directly to the stained area and gently rub the material against itself. For tougher stains, soak your tee for a few hours.
  3. Rinse and repeat until the stain has dissolved as much as possible.
  4. But if you are at work or out having no access to water, blot the stain with absorbent (thick) tissue to soak up as much liquid as possible while still wet. Avoid using toilet paper as it can mess your clothes; try to find a tougher tissue.
  5. Else press wet tissue against the stain while wearing.
  6. And when you get home, treat the stain with the laundry detergent bar soap and then wash as normal according to the care instructions on the t-shirt.
  7. If it’s still proving to be stubborn to remove, you can try soaking the tee with a small amount of detergent for a few hours.

For Oil Stains

  1. Cover the stain entirely with talcum powder, cornstarch, tissue paper or cotton swab and leave it for a few hours in a warm place. Do not rub-down into the stain.
  2. Clear powder using a clean toothbrush. If the oil stain is still there, repeat.
  3. Afterwards, wash the clothing according to the garment care label.
  4. Alternatively, you could make a thick paste using hot water and dishwashing liquid (Vim works best). Cover the stain with the thick paste, and gently use a clean toothbrush in circular motions to rub the stain.
  5. Afterwards, rinse with hot water. Once the stain is gone, wash the t-shirt at the highest heat possible, according to the garment care tag.

With these simple tips removing chocolate, tea or coffee & oil stains from your t-shirt can be a breeze. Now you can sit back, relax, and enjoy a big bar of chocolate, a nice cup of tea and samosa without having to worry about spilling any!

International Women’s Day : Huetrap Salutes Womanhood. Part I

“Woman is not born: she is made.”

says Andrea Dworkin, the most brave radical feminist  of her era. International Women’s day is celebrated world-wide with the intention of glorifying the achievements of women irrespective of national, cultural, linguistic, political, and economic differences. The day is exclusively meant for respecting the women around you and their contribution to the family and society. Apart from it being a general observance of a social event just like International Men’s Day, IWD is associated with the systematic historical oppression faced by women and measures to be taken to free herself.

A day exclusively for women – the thought emerged almost a century ago when about 15000 women employees protested for more pay and less working time in 1908 at New York. February 28 was the day US celebrated National Women’s day in 1909 as a remembrance of the strike. From then, each country observed it in different dates and in 1913, it was decided to celebrate the day on March 8.

From 1996 IWD is following a theme for each year in order to propagate and channelize the year round activity for Women. The campaign theme for 2017 is “Be Bold For Change”. The campaign summons everyone to be bold for a change that makes the world more gender-inclusive. So this is the right time to think on the disparities imposed on women directly and indirectly.

What is the situation?

An urban girl/boy of this century is very well aware that the world has seen some significant changes of the status that women hold in society and family. A girl child is given education these days, a higher education is possible and gaining knowledge is within her reach. She is respected and given opportunity to shine in her own interests and respected by her male co-workers. It is long since she stepped out of kitchen and stepped into moon, we find the contribution of women in almost all fields possible. Indian men are already satisfied that their wives and daughters are already out of veils, they need not die with their husbands, they can remarry and they have been provided with equal opportunity to learn, work and play.

There are also claims that feminism is becoming a misled craze of enabling young women and girls to step out of culture. The claim for equality and freedom is executed in exaggerated fashion which blames men for all its action.

So is this the whole picture? We have women in all fields, we have legislation that support the right of women in each family and in society, we have many role models and we find women emerging as champions. So, is the battle for freedom for equal rights won?

Keep pondering and watching the space for a final outlook.

The Uproar of the Google Generation of Tamil Nadu for Jallikattu

jallikattu-2

The magnificent google generation of Tamil Nadu has made history! Student movement 2017 for Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu is the first massive non-violence protest post-independence. Students erupted into sporadic groups for protests night and day, around the state, to reassert the Tamil identity for the court-imposed ban on Jallikattu, a native sport integral to Tamil culture.

Marina Beach, Chennai witnessed around 20 lakh individuals and volunteer groups on peaceful “Occupy Marina” protest with lakhs thronging various cities of the state like Salem, Erode, Coimbatore, Nilgiris, Nagercoil, Trichy, Puducherry, etc. This student revolution witnessed a virtual shutdown in the state as most organizations downed their shutters expressing solidarity for the cause.

The whole world stands in awe of the leaderless apolitical youth group that coordinated their movement through social media. Support for the protest also came from Tamils across the world. With no sign of protests relenting the Tamil Nadu Assembly has now unanimously passed the bill adopted by the House (on 21st January) to amend the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (PCA), 1960 and make Jallikattu a permanent sport in the state.

This student protest has given thrust to similar student protests not only in Tamil Nadu but also in the neighbouring States. Karnataka students protest for banning their traditional buffalo race called ‘Kambala’ and Andhra Pradesh support for banning ‘People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA). Also, Traders and Colleges in Tamil Nadu have called for a ban on aerated drinks as their water consumption is affecting local farmers.

Huetrap salutes the BRAVE generation who have made the name “Tamizhan” fly high in pride. This history sure deserves a tribute. And as a token of our gratitude and respect to the generation that blew the lid off, Huetrap brings forward Jallikattu Tshirts both in black and white.

Work Wear Ideas for Women to Fashion from Monday to Friday

work-wear-huetrap

When it comes to getting dressed for the office, Indian women have multiple options to choose from. From choosing the perfect dress according to the day and your mood and tying a ponytail to accessorising the look well with a statement earring, there are a number of things that need to be taken care of.

So here are 7 steal worthy outfit ideas for work, to get you kicking the dull and mundane mood from Mondays to Fridays:

1. Classic Monday

The most dreaded day of the week when you might’ve spent all weekend in front of the television and just relaxed, but when you wake up, it’s the first day of work. Sport the most comfortable and enjoyable look to excite you for the rest of the day. Pick a long kurti with leggings and also don’t forget to add a fun item like a statement piece (jewellery, shoes, watch or bag) that is sure to add a feather to the cap!

2. Careless Tuesday

Get into an easy peasy look for the day that reminds you of the soon arriving weekend. Try salwar kameez with tiny trinkets, ballet flats and buy a simple and feminine look. If you think chiffon is a little too gooey, try cotton. Keep it crisp and stoop for fashion but look like you don’t give a damn, yet, to the trained eye you’re street-style-worthy.

3. Glamorous Wednesday

Add a splash of colour and still look professional, like go sleeveless depending on your workplace etiquette. Throw a major colour like a vibrant green Patiala pants with a white kurti or a complete black kurti and bottom with a bright pink dupatta. Own the glamorous look by adding statement jhumkas to your chic look.

4. Secret Thursday

Don’t give them a clue of how your fashion statement for the day would be. Leggings are one clothing item that has now surpassed its boundaries beyond the walls of the office and is now trending as power dressing for Indian women. For a change ditch those chunky necklaces and no heavy make-up, subtle lip colour and nude eye shadows work great! Go Indian by wearing a dupatta to soften your look or go with the simple tops and printed leggings, style a simple pony or flaunt in a western outfit. But remember to maintain low-key to bang on the next day!

5. Edgy Friday

The last day of the week deserves to be spent in style! Consider a collar top with jeans that can take you from work to an evening movie. Also, fashion a chunky stud earring, elegant bracelet, a great pair of heels and a flashy handbag. Style a french braid or a classy ponytail to conform to the office look.

With all these fresh styles, we hope your work weeks will remain colourful and fashionable. Don’t hesitate to flaunt your style quotient at the place where you spend most of your hours. You’re gonna look great girl!
