natural dyes / tumeric

I went to the cupboard for today's dye. Tumeric.  I used a tablespoon in about 8 cups of water. After heating the tumeric to a gentle boil, I reduced the heat and simmered the dye for about 30 minutes.  Added vinegar and the fabric and simmered for about an hour.  I had plans away from home for the day, so I left the fabric in the dye bath to soak all day.  Rich beautiful colour, but will the smell ever leave the fabric?
