Prior to application

Vacuum surfaces thoroughly & remove any existing stains. Any cleaning products should be removed.

Clean in cold water only to remove any traces of detergents or softeners.

4 easy steps to #StainProofYourLife
with our eco friendly fabric protector

1. Check your fabric

Shake well and apply to a small test area for colour fastness. Not all textiles are colourfast.

2. Spray away

Spray an even layer from 15cm in a back & forth motion so that textile becomes moist.

3. Wait for it

Allow a minimum of 12 hours for coating to cure. In temperatures below 18°C allow up to 24 hours.

4. Test for coverage

By spraying a little water on the textile. Small beads should form on the surface. If not, additional application may be required.

How to apply

Spill tests

For most standard upholstery and fabric surfaces we recommend using 100ml per square meter (M2) per coat. It doesn’t need to be exact, just make sure the fabric is saturated with product.

Please note saturating does not apply for leather, suede and velvet. We recommend a light spray and then gently “buffing” the product into the fibres with a soft, clean cloth. If you are spraying large areas, we recommend using our battery sprayer to ensure even application and avoid wrist fatigue.

Some fabrics will require a second coat of product to be applied with an additional 100ml per M2 within 30 minutes of the first application. These include but are not limited to:

  • Heavy or thick fabrics, as they tend to be more absorbent, such as heavyweight linen;
  • Textured fabrics or materials, like woven fabrics where the weave is particularly visible; rugs and carpets, especially shaggy type ones with long strands;
  • Outdoor fabrics and rugs, especially if not kept undercover or exposed to the elements;
  • Highly absorbent fabrics and materials, such as linen and jute

If you are unsure about the type of fabric you have or have any questions, send our friendly customer service team a message and include a photo of your fabric and we’ll do our best to help you.

protectME is a water based, non toxic fabric protector that is safe to use on most fabric or textile surfaces: cotton, suede, leather, synthetics, wool and silk to name a few. Different fabrics will require different amounts of product to be protected, please read ‘How do I know how much product to apply?’ on our FAQs page to find out more.

Some precautions:

  • As some colour dyes are not colour fast, particularly rugs that are using vegetable dyes for example (usually vintage or handmade rugs), we recommend testing the surface in a small inconspicuous area for colour fastness prior to applying all over.
  • If you have applied another fabric protector prior to using protectME, please read ’Can I apply protectME after applying another fabric protector?’ on our FAQs page.
2-3 years depending on traffic & use (much longer than traditional products) or up to 30 washes!

Unopened bottles will last 2 years in +3°C to 30°C temperatures.
