First Step for Overdyed Vintage Carpet DIY?

First Step for Overdyed Vintage Carpet DIY?

Q: I recently fell in love with these re-worked vintage carpets on the ABC Carpet & Home website. I love the bright, overdyed colors and the way you can see the original pattern peeking through. It seems like a good project for a DIY. I'm planning on using a spray bottle with bright pink fabric dye, per these instructions on AT Boston. My question is, how would I bleach the rug first?

Do you have any ideas for how to apply and then wash out the bleach? And what type of bleach would work best?
