Brand new truck and, of all things, a honey mustard stain on my tan carpet! After deciding that killing my step daughter wasn't an option, I attacked the stain and managed to fade it but not remove it-- turns out mustard and specifically tumeric, is almost impossible to remove.
So I'm seeking advice on carpet dying. I've noted the Duplicolor products but, in the absence of other advice/experience, will order a carpet dying pen from an online source and report back about my success/failure with the product.

OK, for anyone curious...
What I did was bleach the rest of the stain and apply a bleach neutralizer followed by an application of the dye "pen". While it looked good when wet, I note a spotty appearance (one section darker than another) and will try another application. After that, I'm done and might actually replace the carpet (though with kids I shouldn't bother)...

An additional update: I'm overall pleased with the dying process, not perfect but based on the limited palette from the company, probably the best I could expect.
The absolute best part about all of this is that I spilled mustard *again* in almost the exact same spot (the kids love their wings...) so I get to repeat the process all over again... Photos to follow if anyone expresses interest.
Mods: Perhaps this belongs in the "Detailing" sub-forum?

Perhaps you should invest in a good set of floor mats.
