RUG CARE “FUGITIVE” DYE TEST:

RUG CARE “FUGITIVE” DYE TEST:


1) Run HOT WATER from the faucet, and wet a portion of a white TOWEL.
2) Wring the excess out so it is DAMP but not wet.
3) BEND open an area of the rug with “suspect” colors that may be fugitive.
4) Press the damp towel INSIDE the fibers (not just on the surface tips).
5) HOLD STILL for 10-15 seconds. (If you move you may move dye.)
6) Remove towel and see if there has been any color transfer.
7) If there has been color transfer – the dyes are FUGITIVE.
