Are any of y’all diving deep into spring cleaning? I personally hate to clean but hate a dirty house even more. I am all about simple solutions that help keep my house from getting dirty in the first place. Scotchgard is one of those solutions – simply spraying it onto fabric surfaces makes them so much easier to wipe clean! I use Scotchgard in so many places in my house, that I wanted to share with you 5 places that you should be using Scotchgard!
Your Couch – this might seem obvious, but it is essential. The light blue love seat in our front room is so pretty, but gets so dirty. The dog has developed a bad habit of sprinting in from the backyard and jumping directly onto this couch. Dirt paw prints are not exactly the first thing that I want people to see when they come into our home! Luckily, Scotchgard pushes stains away from fabric fibers so stains release easily. Just spray it on and stay worry free. It should completely dry before children or pets are allowed in the area just as you would with any spray cleaner or protector.
Cloth shoes – Sean loves these fabric shoes, especially in the summer, but they can get really dirty. A coat of Scotchgard helps to repel liquids and blocks stains.
Kitchen apron – the whole point of aprons is that you can get them messy, but I don’t want mine looking gross! A quick coat of Scotchgard helps to prevent stains from soaking in just in case a little time passes before I get the chance to wash it.
Cloth entry mats – while you shouldn’t use Scotchgard on carpet, I love to use it on the fabric entry mats at our doorways where people come in and wipe their feet.
Curtains – I have noticed that the bottom half of curtains especially can be a dirt magnet! Since I don’t want to have to take them down and wash them frequently, a coat of Scotchgard is the perfect solution. Luckily, it won’t change the look, feel or breathability of fabrics.
Keep almost any kind of fabric looking like new with a few simple steps:
- Prepare: Protect surrounding non-fabric materials from overspray. If overspray occurs, quickly wipe it up.
- Shake: Shake can well.
- Test: Test for colorfastness. Spray hidden area until wet and wipe vigorously with a white absorbent cloth. If color rubs off, DO NOT USE.
- 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.
- Dry: Allow to dry between coats.
- Reapply: Reapply after every cleaning or annually to maintain protection. Durability of protection varies with wear.
- Have to re-apply the product (seasonally or every 6 months). Every couple of months if product is frequently used.
