Color Bleed

I have a large RED rug that was laying over a carpet in my apartment, the red rug got wet and bleed onto the carpet. Any suggestions? Thank you!

The red dye, dyed the carpet underneath.

I wouldn't use a host cleaner like Capture. Once used, Hot Water Extraction will cause wicking of the Capture and a big brown spot.
Host cleaners also have optical brighteners in them. Over time these areas will turn yellow.

Try a professional cleaner and a product only available to professional cleaners called RedOut.

If that doesn't work, patching or replacement is the only other recourse.

i'm not sure why you would use a hot water extraction for a dry cleaner like Capture.....and no i guess you shouldn't use the most popular stain cleaner on the market for your need a professional stain remover what was i thinking
