Scotchgard™ Water & Sun Shield is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed... The Scotchgard Water and Sun shield is a product I recommend to everyone for both outside and inside items. It protects furniture,flags, grill cover,boat covers etc. by blocking the sun rays plus it makes them water and stain resistant. Especially living in Florida having the sun continually coming in the windows can discolor curtains or furniture like my couch that is in front of one of my windows. I also sprayed my new decorative flags that I put out in my front yard to not only guard them from the sun rays but also we are in our rainy season and I need everything water resistant. I am so glad that 3M sent me this product to try and review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use, works great! I used this on all our outdoor patio furniture from cushions and pillows to our umbrella! We have a lot of patterns and vibrant colors, and we get lots of sun throughout the day and afternoon showers - so far it has definitely proved its worth - we can head outside after a rain shower, brush the water off the cushions and sit down without feeling like they're soggy! It's been a little less than a month of leaving the cushions out in the sun all day and no fading so far - it is nice to not have to bring the cushions in or store them after each use and being able to leave them out ensures our patio looks welcoming all the time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save Your Outdoor covers! I decided to try the 3M Scotchgard Water & Sun Shield on my grill cover. The cover is not brand new, so as directed, I washed and dried it first. It is so easy to apply; use the recommended slow, sweeping strokes, and it goes on beautifully. There is no need to spray heavily, as this product gives great coverage. As it dries, the wet look dissipates, but the material looks new and refreshed. I can now look forward to many more years of using this expensive grill cover with the new life I have given it. I received this product free from 3M, but I will definitely purchase more to protect my outdoor curtains and seat cushions. I love this product and wish I had it years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Full disclosure: I received this product at no charge from the manufacturer in exchange for testing it and reporting my findings.... This product is easy to use. The sprayer trigger has a wide contact patch which makes it comfortable for continuous use. The product sprays out evenly and consistently. I treated a brand new fire pit cover (two coats), an umbrella cover and an old tired grille cover before running out, so I am pleased with total coverage out of a single can. Regarding the sun shielding claims of this product, time will tell; I figure it will take a full hot Texas summer to see if any fading occurs to the brand new fire pit cover. As for the waterproofing, water beaded up on the grille cover as soon as the treatment was dry, which was in a matter of minutes. I did not notice any color change or difference in the feel of the fabrics that I sprayed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Patio furniture destroyed in 2 months Used this two months ago on our patio furniture and the fading is beyond extreme. We applied two heavy coats to every cushion and will have to replace the entire furniture set. It was expensive furniture and we thought we were doing our due diligence in protecting them from the sun so we could enjoy it for a few seasons. ScotchGuard did not do its job and now we’re not only out money on their product but will have to purchase new furniture as the cushions are custom built for this furniture. Beyond upset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product - UVA/UVB Can do a lot of damage I received this as a sample. I used it on Fabric spinners I put in my yard & loaned it to my neighbor used it on her patio umbrella. I think I will also apply to a pair of canvas shoes and pink sailcloth purse I wear in the summer. Keeps them looking better when water beads off. Have been caught in summer storms. So far, so great. Guess the best time to rate something like this would be at the end of summer. See how color has stayed & if water weakened fabrics. They make good quality products. I would not apply on a super hot day however. Did not check the can for that warning, but common sense ruled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Repels water nicely While I can not yet speak to the sun shield aspect of the product, I placed the Water & Sun Shield product on my fabric patio umbrella. In testing, the umbrella now repels water whereas before it was absorbing some of the water. I would recommend that users follow the directions on the can and that you also use a mask when spraying because there is quite a bit of overspray and the smell is quite strong while spraying (but not after). Also, if you are in an area that is not above 50% humidity there is an extra step to spray with water. 3M provided a free sample of this product to evaluate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water Shield I used the scotchgard water and sun shield on my umbrella. My umbrella was already badly discolored from not using any products to protect it from the sun. After spraying it, I noticed a trumedous difference in the amount of time it takes to dry off after a bad rain storm. It's great because usually after a downpour the hot sun comes out, and the umbrella is usually too wet to open. This product help repel the water and dry quicker! Since my umbrella was already faded, it's hard to tell how much it protected it from the sun. Please note, I received the product for free from 3M.
