How do I fix a bleach stain on my carpet?

Bleach Stain Removal from Carpet

A bleach stain doesn't have to be the end of your carpet. If it's not a huge spot, you can get away with repairing the spot and no one will be the wiser. It's not as simple as cleaning carpet stains, but it's cheaper than tossing your rug out to the curb. Cut a swatch from a hidden area of your carpet or leftover remnant. Take your swatch to your local crat store and see if you can find a fabric paint or dye that will match your carpet.If this isn't a viable option, a professional who can remove carpet stains may even be able to recommend a product to use to get the color back into your carpet.

This won't work because anything that has been bleached won't take dye. Maybe an option would be to use a marker if you can find one the color of the carpet. I don't know the difference in a marker and dye but a marker or ink works where dye will not. I did this with a skirt I accidently dripped bleach onto.
