Ok we are back and we are moving on to the next stain on the carpet fiber material which is going to be hair dye. Now hair dye needs to be removed as soon as possible. The first thing you want to do as soon as you spill it on the carpet fibers is to blot it with a clean white dry cloth to get out the excess material that's hanging around the tips of the fibers. Now once you do that you want to mix a solution of one cup of water, just luke warm water. You want to mix that with one quarter tablespoon, teaspoon of mild liquid soap. And then you want to take your cloth and take that solution and you want to blot the area working from outside in. And then you want to flood the area with a little bit of water. And blot again. Now you want to make a solution of one part vinegar to two parts luke warm water. And then you want to take your cloth and you want to, you want to blot the area of the hair dye outside in once again. And then finally you want to flood the area with water one more time. And then blot the area dry. And that will pull the rest of the hair dye out of the carpet material.
