How to use Scotchgard™ Fabric & Carpet Cleaner

Erase the toughest stains in a few simple steps.
  • 1. Prepare
    Protect surrounding non-fabric materials from overspray. If overspray occurs, quickly wipe up.

    Shake can well. Hold 4’’ to 6’’ from fabric or carpet. Spray an even coating of foam on fabric. Wait 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 3. Blot
    Blot or lightly rub area with a clean, damp cloth or colorfast sponge. Rinse cloth and repeat until clean. Stubborn stains may require additional treatments. DO NOT SATURATE FABRIC. To avoid rings, clean an entire section of fabric at a time.
