This Protector is a water-based upholstery and carpet protection treatment. It works by putting an invisible barrier around the fibres of the fabric. It helps to reduce soil and stain penetration as well as repelling spillages and everyday dust and grime. These substances can be vacuumed or sponged off easily leaving the fabric clean and fresh. This product is ideal for application to fabric-upholstered furniture, drapes, rugs and carpet. Lightly spray areas you wish to protect (do not flood the area) and allow to dry on the fabric (4-6 hours minimum, 24hrs if possible). If needed, you can lightly wipe into the fabric using a soft-bristled brush. NOTE: Not for use on leather.
