About Upholstery Tape
When you have a tear in a favourite piece of furniture or find something at a car boot sale that you really like, but it has a tear, you can repair the damage and restore it to like-new condition with upholstery tape. Heat-activated upholstery tape can repair the damage to both fine silk fabrics and the more usual family-oriented pieces. Available on eBay in various colours and weights, the tape is easy to use and creates a professional-looking repair. Start by cutting two pieces to match the fabric, place one inside of the tear and the other on the outside. Use your iron to heat and fuse the pieces together and the repair is accomplished with a minimum of fuss and time. Restoring that favourite sofa in the living room or a prized antique chair can extend its use and return its value. Just grab your scissors and iron and repair that much-loved furniture; it is a small effort for a large return.
