    Hi just a quick question I will put my hand up and admit i was an idiot

    I tried dying my roof lining black a few months ago from grey and the dye is still rubbing off on everything

    Iv now got some velvet fabric and just ordered some roof lining spray glue, How do i make sure the dye dont seek through the velvet once iv put that on?

    How would you (if it was your car) stop the dye from going through the velvet fabric.

    All sensible suggestions are greatly appreciated

    When you dye clothes you add salt to stop dye transfer might be worth investigating
