Dyeing Rugs That Have Already Been Dyed

I once dyed my bathroom rugs with Rit dye from steel gray to scarlet. I now want to change them to either drab olive or paprika. These color combo's are on Rit's website. I'm wondering if I want them the paprika which is supposedly a combo of "sunshine orange" and "scarlet", do I have to "remove the color" since they are already scarlet? Can I just use the "sunshine orange" and hope that they turn out paprika?

My guess is it would work if you just used the orange dye. I'm not sure, but that is what I would try.

I'm a professional artist & I would recommend you stay away from Rit brand dye because it tends to fade & is one of the worst dyes out there. Instead use a quality non-fading, non-running dye like Procion. It's not pricey.

Call or e-mail these guys with any questions:

They sell all kinds of quality dyes & really know their stuff, plus, they are super-friendly!
