The versatility of this product is amazing, check out the following five uses for Scotchgard, most you’ve likely never heard of.

1. Protection from Food Stains on Clothes

Are you a notoriously messy eater? Whether you are just out on the town or attending a classy event, it’s not a good look to walk around with a stain. Don’t limit yourself to wearing dark colors in an attempt to detract from any potential spillage. Simply spray the dress shirt or blouse that you intend to wear with Scotchgard prior to the event. Now you can enjoy the party without worrying about ruining your favorite outfit!

2. Avoid a Mess in Your Purse

If you’re a fan of carrying a large purse, you’ve likely dealt with the occasional internal stain or explosion. Whether a tube of your favorite lipstick lost its cap and went rogue or your hand lotion burst and coated everything in your bag, many good purses have been destroyed by accidents like these. Luckily, Scotchgard can protect the interior of your purse from these hazards. Before you put anything in your bag, spray the inside and let it dry.

3. Repel Pet Stains While Visiting

Do you have friends with a large dog who’s overly friendly? It’s easy to get dog slobber on your pants, but it can be difficult to get it off. Spraying your pants with Scotchgard before your visit adds another layer of protection between you and that playful pooch. If you end up slimed, you can easily wipe it off without worrying about stains.

4. Keep Salt from Ruining Your Winter Boots

Your winter boots put up with a lot and often, it shows. It’s hard to avoid getting salt stains on your boots, since salt is seemingly thrown everywhere during the winter months. Use Scotchgard to protect your boots, making them much easier to clean once returning home from being outside. Your boots will look brand new for more than just one season!

Whether it’s from salt, mud, or something else, there are many ways to stain your car’s carpeted interior.
