Projects Carpet dye

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Darin Younce, May 12, 2019.

  1. Went to Walfart and bought the only blue rit die they had. Got home made a small batch (16 oz ) and tried a sample area , matched near perfect . The carpet is in good to decent shale but for some reason it has faded as though someone bleached it, even where the sun never hits. Forgot to take pics , will take some tomorrow.
  2. Carpet die

    Did you kill the carpet (die) or did you change the color (dye)? :D

    My first experience with dying carpet was back in the 60's, I changed the color from blue to black, it turned out pretty good but took a while to completely dry.

    We ran around barefooted a lot during the 60's and in my rush to get the car back on the road my girl friend and I ended up have to wear the black off the soles and toes for the next few weeks. :rolleyes: HRP

    Remember the dyes well, how about the upholstery dyes also?

  6. We all have done it, just messing with you. HRP
  7. Yeah, but I really messed that . Geeze I am getting pretty bad . Btw here are pics. The pic with the red line shows the original color on the left , everything on right is the dye. Looks a bit lighter on pic but this was me just dabbing a bit so I think a really good saturation will be better. The other pic is bottom of drivers door , funny how the old carpet faded. i did a dab on bottom left corner.
