I Googled the manufacturer. However, they had suggestions on how to clean several types of surfaces. They didn't list microfiber, so I chose upholstery. If you get on line with them, you'll see more.

How to remove Silly Putty® from upholstery:

Cleaning Materials

dull knife or metal spoon
WD-40® (car part lubricant)
cotton balls
rubbing alcohol
soft cloth
liquid dish soap

Stain Removal Tips

Scrape excess Silly Putty with a dull knife or metal spoon. Spray with WD-40 and let stand a few minutes. Again, scrape excess Silly Putty with dull knife or metal spoon. Respray with WD-40 and wipe stain with cotton balls. If any stain remains, saturate a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, blot the stain and rinse. Wipe any remaining residue or remaining stain with a damp sponge or cloth moistened with liquid dish soap.

Please Note:

The suggestions for removing stains have been compiled as a service to our consumers. We are unable to guarantee or be responsible for the results obtained by these procedures. You may also wish to consult your local cleaner for further recommendations.

Before attempting the stain removal method, test each procedure on an inconspicuous area of the material or surface to be cleaned. Please be advised these stain removal methods involve hazardous products and are intended only for adult use. Crayola does not recommend children attempt these procedures.

In many procedures, specific brands of products are recommended. These are brands that performed most effectively in our laboratory. Always check individual containers for recommended procedures and warnings. Competitive brand products may work equally well.

This is what I got when I Googled:
Binney & Smith, manufacturer of Silly Putty, make over 20000 "eggs" a day at it's plant in Pennsylvania. That translates into 600 pounds of Silly Putty each.

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.
