Anyone have any recommendations for someone in the Washington DC area?
Interior in my recently acquired car is good but carpet is faded and really detracts from the otherwise nie appearance.

Super idea Steve, thanks!
Let's hope Irene moves east and all that we get is wet.

Steve,

Does one do the re-dye in the car or with the carpet outside the car?
As you know I have two faded carpets in two cars.......one tan and one which looks as if it was blue (Base silver model with black leather seats).
Both carpets are in very good shape but faded and I had assumed I must get them outside in order to re-dye?
Pulling carpets outside is not easy.....

Ta,

Neville.

I did one outside car but I am sure you can do it in car too. It is a water soluble dye they sell and you mix it in a spray bottle and spray it on and work it in.

I spoke with them yesterday and ordered some.
You need not pull the carpets. There are actually two products. The one Steve mentions is for rejuvenating them as well as dyeing. My carpets appear to be in pretty good shape just faded. There is a ready-to-spray product for this purpose $8 per can plus shipping.

Doesn't seem to rub off and definitely has no residual odor to it.
Originally I used the spray and that had a strong and offensive smell that prompted me to switch to the dye.
