I don’t know where she found it, but my damn dog found a camo compac today while I was at work. She decided that it would be fun to eat it on one of my newer couches. Right now I have camo all over the couch and have no idea how to get it off. The couch is dark brown, but the camo is still VERY obvious. Whats the best way to get this stuff off? It has only been on the couch for a few hours. If it helps the material on the couch is a combination of blended cotton felt and some type of polyester (At least that’s what the tag says). Thanks for the help.

You could always hide your couch in the yard... If your dog did a good on the finish, your neighbors will never know! [:D]

Sorry I don't know, but I hope you are single. If you are married you are totally screwed.

Try burning it! That should get it off.

I would sew some pockets,pouches, tac.hoster ,canteens and a flashlight or some cylume sticks on it! Would look cool but if the camo is unacceptable then its time to buy a slip cover for it....sorry

Go to the local store and look for a good cleaner for this sort of thing. Apply with multiple clean rags and use a pulling motion as opposed to a rubbing motion to get it ou. If that don't work.. I highly suggest you just paint the whole thing camo. Then buy a bunch of those fake jungle type plants and put them all around the living room. Quite frankly I like that idea best. Sgtar15

I'm basically married, but she is the one who wanted the dog in the first place. I actually fought getting one for a couple years, so she can't blame it all on me... But then she is a woman so she will find some way of twisting things around...

FOLEX is a carpet and upholstry cleaner that is simply amazing... We have a long haired cat that seems to enjoy kicking up hairballs on the off-white carpeting, and this stuff works!

Try getting a steam cleaner and use that. It might work...

I'd say... "fricken dog ate my camo on the couch and screwed it all up... If I weren't a great guy I'd be serving your damned dog for dinner right now." Well? What'dya think? Perfect! Right?

I just can't stop laughing, every time I roll thru this post! Pic's, Pic's, We must have pic's of the offending K-9 streched out on the couch, with the Camo tube in his mouth. This is funny stuff Maynard.
