Cheap carpet dye.

Put new carpet in my car about 15 years ago. It's not worn but some parts were faded to a reddish color by the sun. Bought a package of Rit fabic dye at the grocery store for $2.99. Mixed half a package in hot water, about a cup and a half, and put it in a spray bottle. Sprayed carpet a couple days ago and it looked pretty good. Went out tonite with a white paper towel to see if any would rub off and it didn't. We'll see how it holds up.

Just an idea.
