Keep your rug cleaner looking longer with the re-application of Scotchgard stain protectant. Easier, faster removal of soil, stains and liquid spills … preventing permanent stains.
The stain protectant bonds with the carpet fiber to form an “invisible barrier” against water and oil-based stains, making your rug more soil retardant and stain resistant. Enjoy the long-lasting protection of soil resistance and spill repellency.
