Carpet dyeing with DIY tips can be a rewarding job. But, certain steps should be followed carefully in order to make the task successful. First, analyze the carpet fiber; those made up of nylon or woolen fiber can be dyed, while polyester or acrylic carpets cannot be dyed. Carpet fibers may react differently with different dyes. You can check the carpet fiber and ensure if it's capable of absorbing the dye. If you're not sure about the fiber type and the suitable dye, take professional's advice.
Some Things to Watch Out For: If the manufacturer of the rug has given some instructions with regards to its cleaning, follow them to the tee. For instance, handwoven rugs should never be cleaned at home. Then, there are rugs which can be machine washed and others which should only be washed manually. Secondly, before using the carpet cleaning solution on the entire rug, do a patch test to ensure that it does not spoil the fabric of the rug in any way. Lastly, if you do not want to carry on this whole procedure manually, you can consider renting out carpet cleaner machines. These carpet cleaners come with full instructions as to how to carry out the cleaning procedure. Follow the instructions thoroughly and your rug will be cleaned within no time!
With the scissors, start cutting the t-shirts so that we are left with 1'' loops. Now again, depending on the size of your hula hoop, you need to collect the appropriate size of t-shirts. For example, if you are using a 33'' hoop, then large-sized t-shirts will work well.
Jute rugs are durable and easily maintained. But, it is not an ideal choice for areas which remain moist longer. For example, it is not a great choice for bathroom or kitchen areas. Also, if you plan to have jute area rugs spread outside, care should be taken that it is not left moist. Therefore, it is ideally used in bedrooms, hallways, porch areas, living areas etc.
