When something hot touches a cloth seat, the fiber will either ignite or burn off. This leaves a black stain on the seat or, depending on the severity of the burn, can sometimes create a hole in the fabric. A temporary repair is relatively simple to complete. The following instructions explain how to remove a burn stain from a cloth car seat.
Mayonnaise will soak into the stain and cause the burnt fiber to loosen up from the seat. Take the mayonnaise and rub it thoroughly into the seat; let it soak for 5 minutes.
Take a wet rag and wipe off the mayonnaise along with any loose burnt fibers.
Take a razor blade and scrape off the remaining fibers.
Use the same razor to cut off a small piece of fabric from underneath the seat.
Take the cut off piece of fabric and glue it onto the stain area. The damage will be covered, and the patch will blend in with the rest of the cloth seat.
