The Scotchgard Test – Part 2 (Guest Blog)

Posted on: December 19, 2013

A week after I sprayed a light filtering shade and a piece of black out fabric with Scotchgard, I am ready to give them each a little spritz of water.  The water beaded up on both treated fabrics.  I was interested in comparing a non-treated piece of black out fabric to the piece with Scotchgard.  As you can see from the photo, the treated fabric repelled the water, while the water on the untreated piece disappeared. My preliminary results are positive.  Applying Scotchgard to our fabrics does help them repel moisture more than a fabric left untreated.  What remains to be seen is if there is a long term effect of the spray on the fabric composition and whether it will continue to repel water over time without reapplication.
