How to Get Cigarette Burns Out of Car Seats

If you smoke in your car, you increase the odds of accidentally burning your vehicle's upholstery. Smoking in a car will inevitably make the interior smell like smoke and stray ashes and butts can burn holes in the upholstery and floor mats. Removing cigarette burns from your car seat is a must if you want your vehicle to look as presentable and clean as possible.

Skill level:Moderately Challenging

Things you need

Vacuum cleanerDishwashing liquidRagScissorsCotton ballsCar seat fabricNeedleThreadFabric glue

Instructions

1 Vacuum the area surrounding the cigarette burn to remove all trash and debris.

2 Trim away any loose threads or pieces of burnt fabric surrounding the cigarette burn.

3 Place a small drop of dishwashing liquid on a damp rag and gently dab the surface area of the burn. Blot the cigarette burn until the surface burn is completely gone. Allow the area to air dry.

4 Cut a piece of fabric from an unnoticeable area in your car, like under the seat, and place the piece of fabric over the burnt area on the seat. The piece of fabric cut should be large enough to cover the cigarette burn.

5 Use the needle and thread to sew the piece of fabric in place over the cigarette burn. If you don't want to sew the fabric to the seat, you can glue it to the seat instead.

Tips and warnings

If the cigarette burnt a deep hole in the car seat, place a few cotton balls in the hole to give it shape before sewing or gluing the fabric over the burn.

If you don't want to cut out a piece of fabric in your vehicle to place over the cigarette burn, visit your local hardware store to see if you can find a fabric similar in colour and texture to your vehicle's own to use instead.

If you have a multiple amount of cigarette burns on your car seat, you may need to have a professional repair the damage.

You can opt in on using a cigarette burn kit if the cigarette burn incident is minor.

Consider placing seat covers over your car seat if the burn is severe or you don't have the money to take your vehicle to a professional to be repaired.

Don't rub the damp rag over the cigarette burnt area or you'll end up splitting more threads and fabric and further damaging the car seat.
