Darkening With Tea

Is it possible to spray a small area rug with brewed tea in order to darken the color? It cannot be put in a washer and is too bright. Thank you

Dear Tava,
If you want to try it, you can see how it comes out. Depending on the fiber content, it just may work to produce the effect that you want. If the rug is synthetic, I have no idea if the tea stain will stick or if it will immediately come off or eventually rub off. If it is cotton, silk, or wool, you may have a possibility there. Try a small corner and see if you like the results!
