Here is my review on how well it works.
LOCATION OF APPLICATION
First I used this on my new Honda Pilot. The seats already were treated prior, but on the way home from the dealers my mother-in-law had this brilliant idea of letting my son have a lollipop. When we got home, the seat was covered in drool and one lollipop stuck to the seat at eye level. When we removed the lollipop, it became our official first stain. So I wanted extra protection.
The second location was a dining room seat at home, that I wanted to test.
DIRECTIONS - Rating 10 out of 10
The directions were on the can. I purchased two cans. Very few steps to take and very simple to use. Each can covers 35sq feet, but I did it heavy so it was closer to 15sq feet. Do not use on leather, the can states!
EASE OF APPLICATION - Rating 10 out of 10
You simply point and spray and sway back-and-forth for a smooth covering. You want to protect the areas around where you spray, so I covered them accordingly with drop clothes. The chair at home I just used tape and wiped up any residue fast. Very easy to use!
SMELL - Rating 10 out of 10
The smell was not bad, it smelled like new car or new carpet. The smell went away after 30 minutes. This is important to me, because I am very sensitive to smell.
FEEL - Rating 10 out of 10
When first sprayed, it was wet :). After it dried, I did not notice a difference in the material feel. I even rubbed my cheek against it.
INITIAL TEST - Rating 10 out of 10
About two hours after I sprayed the car and the chair, I threw water on it. It beaded up and was easily wiped off. I did a second test of putting about 2 tablespoons of water on the chair and car seat and the car seat never absorbed and the chair did after about 15 minutes. Still very impressive.
REAL LIFE TEST - Rating 11 out of 10
A week after I coated the car seat, my wife took a non-cooked egg casserole and put it in the back seat. Not sure what she was thinking, but by the time she got to her destination, only ½ of the ingredients were in the pan, the other half floating around in the back seat. She immediately took out the shop vac and sucked it up. After cleaning the seat, I was really impressed because all the egg came up and no stains were left! It was amazing. The only spot the Scotchgard failed to protect was the seat belt buckle. That was nasty and she spent a good amount of time cleaning it out. I was impressed!
The dining room seat was tested daily. I saw everything from wine to milk spilled on it. This was the real test, because it had excessive wear and use. At the end of the day, the only item that penetrated the Scotchgard was my son’s soccer cleats. He had muddy shoes and decided to use the stool to tie his shoes. The mud penetrated and did not come off 100% when washed. Outside of that incident, we now have 1 of 6 chairs around the dining room table that looks near new! Yes, my wife asked me many times why I did not protect all of them. When I say asked, I meant she brings it up almost every day.
3-MONTHS LATER - Rating 10 out of 10
The protection has been amazing. The car seat has had a lot of test from the kids, from fruit snacks, to blueberries to buggers. The seat still looks new and cleans well. The key is to make sure you clean any messes quickly. After 3 months, I finally did all the chairs around the table.
MARRIAGE STABILITY - Rating 10 out of 10
It's the little things that add up. From GPS to Scotchguard, it's amazing how many less fights a married couple can have.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEIR PRODUCTS
I am always asked about the difference between Auto Fabric & Carpet Protector vs Fabric Protector. I have never noticed a difference. I have used both and they work the same. I think it is solely a marketing communication strategy only.
Overall, very impressed. Every day I look at things asking if I should Scotchguard it, including my dress shirts that always attract food. Now anytime in the family someone gets something new and can be protected, I now buy them a can.
I sprayed my Acura MDX tonight and wiped off everything up front with a towel. It did not seem to bother the plastic up front. When I sprayed the walls of my trunk and floor carpet I immediately noticed some overspray dried and it look awful. I first tried 99% alcohol. This only spread the milky film and made it worse. I applied pressure with s towel then followed up with meguiars vinyl cleaner. With a ton of effort I got one small spot clear but it was everywhere in my trunk on the exposed plastics. It seems wiping after spraying did not help on the plastic in my trunk, Im not sure why. I found someone suggesting non acetone nail polish remover online and decided to try it. This stuff contains ethyl keytone which is a non polar solvent. I assume that most hydrocarbons will defeat scotchguard on plastic, the trick is finding one that will not also melt your plastic. For .89 cents I bought a bottle of acetone free nail polish remover at Kroger. I applied it to a clean terry cloth towel and tested a spot right there in the parkinglot. It worked and did not damage my plastic. I then wiped all of the scotchguard off of my plastic and followed up with a vinyl protectant. No more stained plastic and I am relieved.
Unless the seat or whatever you are protecting is BRAND NEW, make sure you clean the seal/item THOROUGHLY first. If in doubt, clean it again. If you don't and any stain is left behind, DO NOT apply the 3M Scotchgard as you WILL SEAL in that stain, making it very PERMANENT. Check the seat, carefully; if in doubt, clean it again. Normally a clean cotton towel, with just plain tap water will do the job; going to alcohol or other fabric cleaners ONLY if needed to removed a special stain. AGAIN IF YOU APPLY 3M SCOTCHGARD OVER A STAIN,, that STAIN IS LIKELY THERE FOR LIFE. Surface Prep is HALF the job. Applying the 3M is the other half.
Always apply in a minimum of a 50% or less overlapping pattern, and done in two separate applications, allowing to dry the minimum recommended by 3M between coats. A day is always good, unless it still feels damp to the touch. Two or Three coats is better than ONE HEAVY application; as only so much will sink in per application in that fabric. Two coats. First coat is done NORTH-SOUTH, using the minimum 50% overlapping spray pattern, going from top to bottom of the seat or whatever is being protected (In my case, car seats in convertible sports car) ..
Second coat- applied going in EAST -WEST direction, purpose being to maximize coverage to ensure that all fabric is 100% covered. Have done FOUR coats in the past; however, with just two relatively small bucket seats, TWO cans were used in total. Each can of 3M Scotchgard Fabric protector covering both seats for one coat / application.
