  • Color transferred from a furniture item to the carpet (How to?)

    Recently ran into a situation where there was a water leak unknown to the home owners, which caused an area of their carpet to become saturated underneath a furniture item. The furniture item was black. The color from the item was transferred to the carpet, leaving a large black stain. Pre-spray, degreaser, nor dry cleaner would remove the stain. What is the appropriate course of action for removing a stain of this sort? Thanks in advance for your insight and comments.

    The first product to try is Dynamic Duo. This is a two part product that you would want to apply and cover with plastic for 24 hours. After 24 hours re-rinse, and possibly re-apply

    This uses the same frequency as a tanning bed. I saw this light turn yellow mustard and dynamic duo turn clear in 3 hours.
    If the furniture has dye or pigment in the finish, you might also try using Red Relief but you need to aggressively rinse the Dynamic Duo out before you switch chemicals.
    Red Relief is good for dye stains like varnish and Kool-aid.
