Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)
Cotton balls or cotton wadding (if padding is missing)
Preparing the Damaged Area
- Prepare the damaged area on your sofa by carefully trimming any excess threads or burn marks.
- Clean the area with a cleaning solution and a cloth.
- If padding is missing from the area you are repairing and the area under the damage is indented, insert cotton balls or cotton wadding and spread it evenly.
Adding Backing Fabric (for larger tears)
- For tears larger than 1/4 of an inch, cut a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges, slightly larger than the damaged area.
- Insert it into the tear with the spatula provided in the kit.
- Do not use the backing fabric for repairs smaller than 1/4 of an inch.
Mixing the Repair Fibers
- In the mixing jar, add the matching color fibers and the metal ball.
- Attach the lid and shake the jar for at least 30 seconds.
- If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided.
- Test your mixture by placing a small amount of the fiber mixture on the repair area with the tweezers.
- Keep on adjusting your mixture until you get the perfect match. Be patient and make small adjustments until the color matches just right.
Applying the Repair Glue
Apply the glue to the damaged area on your sofa, under and along the edges, working from the outside toward the center to avoid air bubbles. Fill the damaged area as evenly as possible. Apply a thin layer of glue around the damage to blend in the repair as well.
- Take off the lid of the jar and remove the metal ball. Secure the piece of mesh on top of the jar with the rubber band and use this as a sieve.
- Hold the mixing jar upside down above the adhesive and gently tap the mixing jar. This will gradually sift the fibers over the adhesive. Cover the adhesive completely with the fabric fibers.
Finishing the Repair
- Gently pack down the fibers with the spatula. Duplicate any fabric patterns such as lines or swirls with the spatula on your sofa.
- Allow 24 hours for it to dry. Once the fabric glue has dried fully, blow off any excess fibers.

See what people are saying!
We recently moved and our sofa was torn in storage by how a third party mover stacked it. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. After researching and looking for solution we decided to give Coconix a try. Our sofa is a weird color and we were worried about the match. The kit worked wonders and the four tears were repaired and look better than we could have hoped. Thank you!!
