Can You Dye Carpet?

By Janelle Bass 1

I have tried everything to clean my carpet but still have stains. Has anyone ever dyed carpet? Have you had good results? Please help, as I can't afford to replace it right now.

There are professional companies the dye carpets, but they are few and far between to find. I would not try doing it myself, you'll just end up with a gigantic mess, and end up replacing the carpet anyway. Call some carpet stores, they might have some leads, or try doing an internet search. Be careful though, some of the dye does not hold properly, and will bleed onto whatever else is against it, or fade just in places. If you do find a company, make sure you get some type of guarantee.

SPOT SHOT is the best ever for removing all kinds of stains---I get it at Wal-Mart. Just spray it on and the spots just disapear!!!
