DIY Fabric Protection

Save

Household fabric purchases such as furniture, carpet and curtains can represent a costly investment. You want to make sure that you take steps to protect as well as maintain your investment. Giving your items a Scotchgard treatment can help protect them from stains. Scotchgard is a product that you may spray on fabric items to help them repel stains. This can extend the life of your fabric items.

Things You'll Need

  • Scotchgard™ Fabric & Upholstery Protector
  • Make sure your item is clean and free of dust. Some new furniture is sold with a fabric protector already applied. If this is the case, you may just need to reapply after one year.

  • Perform a color-safe test by spraying a hidden area with Scotchgard and wiping the area with a cloth. If the cloth remains clean, your item is color-safe and you can proceed. If you see color on the cloth, you should not use this product on your item.

  • Shake the Scotchgard can well.

  • Hold the can 6” from item and spray evenly until wet. This may leave foam that will eventually disappear.

  • Let the item dry for about 8 hours.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use with good ventilation.
