Question by Bonou: Is there a way to remove the red dye of a Persian rug that accidentally ran into other areas of the rug?I have a persian rug that accidentally got wet and the red dye ran into cream and gold areas. How can you reamove the red stain from those ares?

It is not a knock off, its a 50 year old Kashani heirloom with vegtable dye. Thanks 🙂

First, it is not a Persian Rug, they do not bleed. You have a knock off. The label should give the proper care instruction, but if it really is a knock off, it will be wrong also.

Sorry.

    If the other areas are lighter than the red, and I assume they are, like beige or white…
    try some windex on the tip of a q-tip. It has worked amazingly well for me in removing dye/ink type spots from rugs/carpet.

    To the above answerer, actually low quality Kashani rugs do stain. 🙁

    Oh well. I’m sorry about the rug but there is not much you can do any more. Just don’t mess with it to make it worst. The price of it has probably dropped tenfold after what happened to it.

Tell me what you're thinking...
