If you take a look a my Pinterest Home board it is covered in white or light interiors. For the obvious reasons that they are beautiful, airy and open! Bring on the white decor.
But, let’s be real, in a busy home, it’s hard to keep that Pinterest inspired decor looking it’s best. So, what are we to do?
Protect it, with Scotchgard™ Fabric & Upholstery Protector! Our home is still new and we’re still breaking in all of our light decor, but here is a sneak peek — do you see anything that could use a little extra protection?
Curtains, couches and those tufted dining chairs that I just had to have! I wanted to keep them looking gorgeous, so before I even set them loose in my home, I made a little trip to Target and picked up a can of Scotchgard (the last one, yay me!).
I started with my tufted dining chairs. I brought them outside to avoid any mess from overspray and of course to get a lot of ventilation.
I shook the can and tested a tiny spot on the bottom for colorfastness. To test for colorfastness you spray the hidden area until wet and wipe vigorously with a white absorbent cloth. If color rubs off, don’t use it.
Once I was in the clear with colorfastness, I went ahead and sprayed a light coat using slow, sweeping motions.
I let the first coast dry and applied a final coat.
Once the final coat was dry, my chairs were ready to go inside! It was that easy and in case you’re wondering, the Scotchgard did not leave any offensive odors or change the way the fabric felt in any way!
I then went on to apply Scotchgard to our curtains and the large slipcovers of our couch. It is recommended to re-apply Scotchgard once a year or after every wash. I knew I would be washing our couch cushion covers often, so I chose not to apply Scotchgard to them. However, the large covers on the couch I plan to only wash every so often, so I sprayed away!
Scotchgard repels liquids, blocks stains from penetrating fabrics and can be used on almost any washable fabric. So, not only can you use it on your furniture, you can also use it in your car, on backpacks and clothes. I know I’ve already avoided a stain from a spill on my white tufted chairs, thanks to Scotchgard!
