Carpet colorizer to cover up bleach stain?


I managed to work my magic today and spilt some bleach on our 6-month old carpet.

Is there any sort of product for "re-colorizing" carpet? We have a mid-tone beige color.

The spot is a little bit smaller than a baseball in size.

Carpet colorizer to cover up bleach stain?


There is nothing on the market that I know of that will colour a small area of carpet other than an ordinary felt pen. But, I've never seen a beige felt pen.

You can sometimes repair damage to carpets. They use something called a "cookie cutter" to cut a round piece of carpet out from an inconspicuous area with the same carpet, such as in a closet, or behind a drape or under a couch. Then they use that same cookie cutter to cut out the piece of damaged carpet. Then, they simply swap pieces so the damaged piece is under the couch (or where ever) and the undamaged piece is visible.

Phone up any carpet store and ask to speak to their Installations Manager. Ask him who sells flooring installation supplies in your town. Phone up the place that sells flooring installation supplies and explain the situation and find out who does a lot of carpet repair work with cookie cutters. You'd need an experienced hand doing this kind of stuff to have it look half way decent.
