No matter what you do, when the tar dissolves', it's going to be a mess. That being said, Mineral Spririts or Mineral Oil will disolve the tar. I'd try the Spirits with a small toothbrush and try to keep the area of cleanup to a minimum.

It's been a long time since I had to get tar off of something, but I think I used lighter fluid. Use a paper towel, soak spot with the fluid "scrape", blot with the paper towel. Do it over and over. After it's all gone let evaporate, then clean the fluid with something that cuts grease. That will get the lighter fluid off. I would try a small spot of lighter fluid in a place hidden, to see if you can get it off this material. (08/19/2008)

I would call a professional. It is worth the money. Anything you might try at home may damage the fabric. Professionals have the tools needed to really get the stain out. (08/20/2008)

Try cleaning it with teatree essential oil. Put a small amount of it on a clean cloth. Try on small area that is not seen, first just to make sure it does not harm the fabric. (08/26/2008)

I took the lighter fluid idea, but used gas on a tip of a cloth, and got the stain out. (10/30/2008)

My grandkids got small spots of tar on my new family room furniture. The furniture is covered in brick red microfiber fabric. Any suggestions on how I can get the tar removed? I am at wits end and appreciate any suggestions.

Being close to the coast (Galveston, Texas), sometimes we get tar on our feet, swim suits, etc. The best thing I've found to take tar off is Avon's Skin So Soft. The original one. I know it sounds weird, but it works! You may have to wash your microfiber afterwards with mild detergent, but this should do the trick for you. (10/24/2007)

I once took tar (not a little but a goodly amount) from freshly tarred street off my week old carpet, by using baby and/or talcum powder. I'd sprinkle, brush in, vac off, and repeat until it was gone. Came completely off even though it took a while. (10/24/2007)
