    I didn’t even know such a product existed-Hooray and thanks for the introduction! I am working on a re-do of our front porch furniture so this will be very handy.

      I am thinking of doing all my chairs in the house too, especially the dining and kitchen chairs. Let me know if you try it!

        This is great! Now I can move on to other projects each spring instead of updating
        My weather worn cushions! Thanks:)

        I was looking for something like this, as I’m about to upholster my dining chairs. I don’t want to put a plastic cover on the chairs. Does this product make the cushions crunchy feeling?

        It didn’t make any of the items I used it on crunchy. It doesn’t feel like there is anything on it.

        Awesome! I recently had the thought to use it on an indoor rug. One I’ll put under my dining table. It won’t be shag or carpet like – think it’ll work?

        Not sure – but I would try it :) (unless it’s an expensive rug – then I would buy something specifically made for rugs)

    Is there any reason why you couldn’t use this on indoor furniture as well? It seems like it would be similar to ‘Scotch Guard”. I’ve got a red sofa that sits in front of a living room window and is already showing signs of sun fading.

      I asked the rep from Thompson’s and they said it can be used for indoor furniture too! I would take it outside to spray it though :)

    WOW…you hit the jackpot with your Craig’s List find! This set is fabulous, especially after your magic touches! The fabric you chose really compliments the lines of the furniture…and ohhh that shade of blue…what an eye-grabber!
    I’m so glad to hear about this product, as well. Living in MS, I can definitely relate to the sun’s brutal effect on anything left outdoors! Now, if we only could do something about this humidity!

      Thanks :) I hear you on the humidity – It is honestly so humid here that I feel like I’m swimming in hot water when I step outside!

    This is such a helpful post! I’m making bench cushions for my gazebo this summer and they’ll definitely get a coat of this seal!

    Did you use “outdoor” fabric or just regular? We were recently given a nice outdoor set that I’m planning to spray paint and recover the cushions. I’ve been put off by the price of outdoor fabric, though. It would be nice if I could just get regular fabric and spray it with this stuff…

      I used outdoor fabric, but you can use this spray on regular fabric too!

      Hi! I understand that Lowe’s will be carrying it in the next few weeks. I will let you know when I get a definite answer as to when they will have it. Thanks!

    Do you think it would work with cushions that are left out in the rain? A down pour of rain is a lot different than a splash test. Thanks!

    • A Pinterest Addict

      To be honest, I haven’t tried that yet. But we will be replacing some cushions for the outside swing, and I’ll be trying this on them. I’ll let you know how it holds up after one of our South Florida thunderstorms.

        No fabric can ever be made completely “waterproof.” Only rubber/vinyl/plastic can repel a steady downpour of rain. My husband learned that looking for waterproof hunting attire. We did a lot of research looking for camo rainsuits, and learned that “waterproof” really means “water resistant.”

    I have the same fabric as my couch throw pillows LOL. I love the color you chose for the furniture itself. Can you tell me what product/color that is? Thanks!

    Could I treat the fabric before I put it on my chairs?

      Yes, I don’t see why not. :)

    Do you think this can be used on fabric used to cover a picnic table? Trying to jazz up our picnic table and woul love to get some fun fabric to cover it with!

      Yes! I am going to be spraying every fabric for outside once our pool is finished.

    Guessing it has been about a year since you posted this, how is the fabric holding up under the Florida sun? Have you reapplied the Thompsons?

      Hi Debbie! Yep, it’s been almost a year. I just recently had to clean up this set (all the pool construction left everything a dusty mess) and I am happy to report that the fabric was still repelling water – and they still look as good as the day I put the Fabric Seal on them.

    So does it work as far as being able to use non-outdoor specific fabric outdoors or should u still use outdoor fabric

    I make pillows as baby gifts and print the birth stats on fabric for the center of the pillow (directly through my printer). Problem is – if the ink gets wet, it will bleed. Do you think this may work for protecting the ink? Will it be safe to put in a baby’s crib? Thanks!

    • A Pinterest Addict

      I wouldn’t know if it is safe for that use. You can probably email someone at Thompsons to find out. I know I have gotten quite a few answers to questions like this regarding use of their products around our birds.
      Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.

    Where did you get that fabric for chairs?

      I got it at JoAnn Fabrics. I saw some there the other day, so they might still carry it.

    Does The Spray Help Your Outdoor Cushions From Soaking Up The Water After A Hard Rain? I’ve Actually Debated Selling My Patio set Because Everytime It Rains I Have To Take My Cushions Off And PutThem Away Or They Still Wet For About 3 Days!

    Do you think this would work for canvas shoes like TOMS?

    Thinking about getting this to use on fabric tablecloths… but will this hold up to being laundered occasionally?

    does this work if you want to seal seams to prevent feathers from coming out of your jacket

    I wonder if this would work on shoes too?
