- 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.
