I am completely panicked!!! My brother-in-law just left with his 7 year old twins, and we noticed they someone got tape adhesive on our new microsuede sofa.

We have both been googling with no good results. Any ideas?????

Thanks!!!!

Can you call your local furniature store and ask them?

I think maybe the safest thing to try might be a warm steam iron.
I agree though, call a furniture store and ask.

Good idea, Kenz. Or you could try contacting Ari - I think her new couch is micro-fiber. Maybe it has care instructions on the tags.

I bet your wishing you'd put them in the cellar now

I would try where you bought the sofas from as well.

Nature's Miracle make a special oil / glue remover for microsuede, not sure if they still do but it worked great and didn't mark when we used it.

I think it was the stain and odour remover one and we used an iron over some absorbent paper to melt and get as much of it off as possible and go rid of the white residue with the natures miracle.

Now we have slip covers that can just be thrown in the machine!

Thanks everyone!

I just saw something about Natures Miracle online as Eithne mentioned and also using the Mr. Clean magic eraser.

I am freaking out! It is right in the middle of the cushion!

Oooh I always get steamed when I hear that sort of thing! I am starting to think that I was unusual as a child because even from a very young age I was careful and gentle with animals and could be trusted around them.

I hope Abby is OK.

i would call the store you bought it from. we bought a warranty for stains on our new microfiber couch, so i think we are supposed to call the 1-800 number if anything gets on ours.

let us know if you get it out and what with. i'd be interested to know since i have the same kind of couch.

Nope... the tags on mine were just the tags from the store, didn't have any info on how to take care of it.

Either way, good luck.. I'm gonna keep an eye on this thread so that I know what to do if that ever happens to me - heaven forbid!

Oh no Karen....
your brother-in-law should pay to have a professional come in and clean it.

I agree the iron thing over a papertowel may work

little heathens!!

don't have the iron on too high though, microsuede can shrink and get kind of hard if 'burnt'

yeah, you just want it hot enough to melt the adhesive... this trick also works well for wax on your carpet

My advice would be to do nothing until you call the manufacturer. That sucks that it happened.

Any luck with it Karen?

Not yet. We have tried a few things, but decided to stop until tomorrow when it will be brighter in the room.

Spot removal vibes are on the way.

Hope you manage to get it off, Karen! What a child!
post #24 of 28
Oh no Karen.....sure hope it comes out. Our sofa is that material too, but when our 4 year old nephew comes over, he's banished to the attic!!!
post #25 of 28
I dont really have any advice for you, I just wanted to send good luck vibes your way!

I would try the magic erasers, they work on about everything else. I'd just try it somewhere hidden first to make sure that it doesn't hurt the fabric!

I hope you figure something out!

I'm happy to say the spot is gone!

Here is what we tried -

mild soap and water
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
Regular eraser
Iron and a paper towel.

All of that got it partially out, but what did the trick was Krud Kutter, purchased at Lowes.

Thanks for all of your suggestions!

Karen...this is truly a great day.
The spot is gone.
