At about average room temperature (70 degrees F, 50% Humidity), your fabric or upholstery 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 & Upholstery 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.
If your fabric is microfiber, we’d recommend testing an out-of-the-way spot before applying Scotchgard™ Fabric & Upholstery Protector on a broad area. Allow it to dry and then look for any change in the feel or appearance of the fabric.
