Instructions

  1. 1

    Read the instructions and warnings labels on your Scotchgard can. Ensure that the product is safe to use on your couch's fabric.

  2. 2

    Shake the can in an upright position.

  3. 3

    Remove the cushions from your couch.

  4. 4

    Spray your can of Scotchgard in an even sweeping motion across the body of the couch. Cover all areas of the fabric, including the cushions that you removed.

  5. 5

    Replace the cushions, and allow the Scotchgard spray to air-dry. Depending on the severity of stains, your couch may take anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours to air dry. If you are simply spraying the couch in a sweeping motion, it should dry in under an hour. For severe stains that you are spraying directly, it may take a few hours to dry. Some Scotchgard products may instruct you to blot any stained areas with a lint-free cloth, so follow the specific instructions on the can's label.

Tips and warnings

  • Spray stains directly and follow the instructions on the can. It may or may not require you to blot the stain with a lint-free cloth.
  • Wash your hands immediately after use to prevent the product from entering your eyes.
