No hole. Just scorch marks in upholstery. How do I fix or hide it. Faux suede fabric.

    Use a fingernail brush to brush it back up.

    If you elect to put color over it, I would first try upholstery shampoo after brushing & vacuuming it a lot, like Kelli wrote.

    It May take 2 shampoo and vac’ing. You don’t want any burn residue to bleed into the paint.


    If it’s still burned, then I’d make a matching color with acrylic artists paints and you’ll need to make several paint chip sample cards and speed dry them with a hairdryer, while keeping track of your wet paint palettes. This is worth your time to do right.

    Paint usually dries darker than wet.


    Then I’d lightly dry brush in the matching paint.

    Have you tried to snip it out with a realy sharp sizer just the burnt part maybe try putting some tape over it and then lift the tape see if it takes the burned parts off

    If it is just scorched maybe you can get it back a little by using a clean cloth with rubbing alcohol.
