I would get a bowl of water and add a lil clorox to gently bleach most of the color out of the fabric. Then I'd get the rit die and tint it properly

I've used this method with no issue. Thing is, you have to be sure the water is diluted and thatyou Don't use too much bleach.   Always spot test first.

But of course, you have to do what you're comfy doing. Try the dye remover first. Hopefully that works for ya.
