Instruction on how to apply carpet dye sticks
Carpet dye sticks are fast and easy way to repair and restore your carpet stains,Carpet dye sticks are used best on bleach spots as well as faded out areas on carpeting. In addition, carpet dye sticks have success on stains that are darker than the original carpet color.
Step #1: Bleach spots and stains must first be cleaned, neutralized and rinsed before applying Carpet Dye Sticks. This can be accomplished with a hot water extraction carpet cleaning machine. Do not rinse with soap. Only clear, hot water is needed after cleaning.
Step #2: Apply Carpet Dye Sticks to slightly damp carpet. Using a white note pad or sheet of copy paper in order to determine what colors are needed to make a color match. (See instructions and selections.)
Step #3: Using your hand or a carpet groomer, blend the dye sticks to match original carpet color by softly and easily rubbing the dye stick on the stained area. Start in the middle and work your way to the edges of the stain. Start off light and gradually work to a darker color to match your carpet specifications. Most mistakes are made when too much dye stick is applied. This can be remedied by simply cleaning the affected area and starting over.
Step #4: If the shade is too dark, wipe the affected area softly with a cloth and lighten to a more desired shade. Also, you may clean enough off to start over. This product is produced to be partly Non-permanent to allow you several attempts to get the color just right.
Step #5: The gray dye sticks are for shading all other colors as well as for gray carpets.
Customers tell us that they have had great success covering plant stains and red drink stains. However, we freely admit that it is not as easy to cover stains that are darker or brighter such as red. We never encourage anyone to bleach out their stains in order to re-dye them. On the other hand, we have been told by others that they have done this. We caution against it. Any time bleach is close to carpet, it has the potential of destroying your carpeting.
