Use Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector on embroidery, knitting, fabric bags, sewing, quilting, needlecraft, silk flowers, fabric wreaths, table linens, and other fabric items.
At about average room temperature (70 degrees F, 50% Humidity), your fabric should dry overnight, but make sure to check before you start using treated surfaces again. When it’s colder or more humid, it might take longer for your surfaces to dry. Ventilating the area by opening windows or using a fan will help Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector dry faster. If you’re just drying between coats, 2 – 4 hours is usually sufficient.
In general, Scotchgard™ Fabric & Upholstery Protector can be used on cotton, polyester, silk, wool, acrylic, nylon, and most other washable fabrics. Do not use on “X” coded fabric (fabric that cannot be cleaned with water or solvents). You can find this code on the tag sewn into your fabric item. It is always best to test on a small, out-of-the-way spot first to make sure your fabric will stay colorfast.
Do not use Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector on leather; it could damage leather surfaces.
Do not use Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector on suede – instead, use Scotchgard™ Suede & Nubuck Protector
Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector shouldn’t be applied over any ink – like an autograph or sketch in marker or pen – because the ink may not remain colorfast and could bleed.
For upholstery or similar fabrics, reapply Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector every six months or after every professional or water extraction cleaning.
For fabrics that you launder, reapply Scotchgard™ Fabric Crafts Protector every time you wash or dry clean your item.
