How do I repair cigarette burns on a microfiber sectional sofa?
Check out the ThriftyFun archives below. If you don't find something there that is helpful to you I suggest calling a professional furniture upholsterer to see if it's even possible to repair without recovering. This is yet another lesson, besides health, as to why not allow smoking inside of your home. (01/18/2011)
One option would be to look at a "blind" spot to "steal" a clipping from. If you've got removable cushions, or if you turn the couch over, you should have a spot where you could take a cutting that would be big enough to cover the burn. If you have a deep hole, fill it in with a piece of sponge or cotton ball. I would then cut enough to cover about a 1/2 inch area bigger than the burn. Use some fabric glue and place your piece there. Let the glue dry well. (01/18/2011)
I have 2 burn holes in different locations: 1) on arm of microfiber recliner, 2) burn hole on the seat of the loveseat. The fabric like I said is microfiber and it is a dark milk chocolate color.

How do you repair cigarette burns in the arms of a brown microfiber couch?

I would suggest that you make brown-toned arm covers to hide the marks. You will have a hard time patching the burns but an arm cover that co-ordinates with the sofa will hide the mark(s). If you don't sew, ask an upholstery shop to do it. It shouldn't cost as much as re-upholstering the arms. (12/01/2008)
