How to use Scotchgard™ Fabric Water Shield

Keep almost any kind of fabric looking like new with a few simple steps.
  • 1. Prepare

    Protect surrounding non-fabric materials from overspray. If overspray occurs, quickly wipe up.

  • 2. Shake

    Shake can well.

  • 3. Test
    Test for colorfastness. Spray hidden area until wet and wipe vigorously with a white absorbent cloth. If color rubs off, DO NOT USE.
  • 4. Spray
    Hold can upright 6’’ (15cm) from fabric surface. Overlap spray using a slow, sweeping motion. Two light coats are better than one heavy coating.
  • 5. Dry
    Allow to dry between coats.
  • 6. Reapply

    Reapply after every cleaning or annually to maintain protection. Durability of protection varies with wear. NOTE: May give fabric a slightly darker, richer tone.
