My cousin's lovely children were over last night and got silly putty on our brand new microfiber couch! It is a light beige color, and what we are left with is 5 to 6 small spots that won't lift off. I am afraid to try the WD-40 route as it may stain.

You might try freezing it with a piece of ice. Maybe it will then just brush off. In the past I have "blotted" silly putty spots with the remainder of the putty and it pulled it right off. Good luck. (01/07/2006)
I used Oxi-clean on my boyfriend's silly putty mess on my microfiber couch after scraping as much as I could off. Worked great for me. (02/10/2007)

We just had this disaster happen at our house! We found the ice it/freeze it method worked great. We froze what was left after scraping with fingernails, and then we used a credit card to loofah the rest. Worked great. (06/18/2007)
Ice worked great for me too. I was afraid to use other things because of staining. My silly putty was not in clumps, it was stringy. I would ice it and then scrape it off with a butter knife. It worked great for me. (03/09/2008)
The only solution is this, for all silly putty related stains. First coat it in flour, not too much but just a little, freeze it with either ice, ice pack, or any way you can get cold on a surface. Then simply peel it off. (06/28/2008)
