RITE or something like that makes a dye black looks really nice too usually you can find this dye at walmart.... i've heard you just put it in a bucket with water... or something bigger for the carpet and let it soak the amoutnof time then wash off excess and dry flat....

I think I had already seen a thread on here were a member did this and it didn't work for him, but I'm not sure. Search the site for it.

So I just did this last night and it worked great. My carpet was the dark blue grey and it came out totally black. I think what people are doing wrong is on the back of the dye it says for nylon witch our carpets are, it says to use a cup of vinegar not salt.
