Coconix Fabric and Carpet Repair Kit

Cleaning solution (such as a household cleaner)

Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)

Cotton balls or cotton wadding (if padding is missing)

Step 1

Preparing the Area

  • Prepare the damaged area on your carpet by carefully trimming any excess threads or burn marks.
  • Clean the area with a cleaning solution and a cloth.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Applying the Repair Glue

  • Apply the glue to the burn hole on your carpet, 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.

Step 4

Adding Fibers

  • 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.

Step 5

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 carpet.
  • Allow 24 hours for it to dry. Once the fabric glue has dried fully, blow off any excess fibers.
  • Use tweezers to remove any loose fibers that may still stick out from the repair.

Step 6


  • To ensure that your repair lasts as long as possible, it's important to maintain the carpet.
  • Vacuum the repaired area regularly to remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives on the repaired area, as they may damage the repair and undo all of your hard work.
  • If you are a smoker, consider using an ashtray to prevent future cigarette burns on your carpet.

And there you have it! You've just fixed that unsightly cigarette burn on your carpet and it's looking as good as new. Give yourself a pat on the back, and maybe a pat on the back of your carpet for being such a good sport. Your carpet is now ready for more foot traffic and compliments. Enjoy! And don't forget to use an ashtray next time to avoid this kind of accident.

Highly recommend!

Very pleased with this repair kit! I am not even remotely handy or crafty and was able to repair the small burn hole in my rug without relative ease. The instructions were very simple to follow, and I was able to match the rug color pretty closely using a mix of the beige and grey fibers. Highly recommend!
