I've got a cheap, yellow 5X7 carpet. It's been in my dorm room all year, so its a pretty dirty here in there (gray scuffy patches from shoes). It's kinda like Berber but the looping is really fat.

 Should I try to clean it? How? Could I make something else out of it? It was like $10, so should I get rid of it?

You could try to dye it by maybe pouring some mixed Rit Dye on it.?

Well, if you have a cat, you could make a scratching post out of it.  (Personally, i'd like to kill the SOB that decided carpet was good for scrathing posts, cause now my cats think my whole house is their scratching post, but what are ya gonna do?)

I've actually hosed down carpets like that. Take it outside, if you can, and wet it. Work some good soap into it- dish soap or laundry soap is good- and rub it with your fingers like you're giving it a really good shampoo. Take a hose to it and rinse all the soap out, (if there are still stains try stain remover and rinse again) then hang it to dry over some lawn chairs or on a clothes line. You can also do this procedure in the bath tub if outside won't work, but it's alot messier!
Good luck!
