Scotchgard Fabric & Carpet Cleaner is a 14-ounce can of cleaner that I heard was good for sofa cleaning, as well as cleaning several different types of fabric. And in its wake, it’s also supposed to leave behind Scotchgard protection to protect the surface from future stains. Let’s see how well it works and if it can tackle some of the cleaning chores I have lined up for it.
The first thing that caught my attention about this product was that it was only a 14-ounce can – which made it quite expensive for what I paid for it. However, I was determined to see how good of a cleaner it was, so I pressed on to see what it could do.
I noticed that it had a nice foaming action that looked like it could really get to the bottom of a stain. And in most instances, it did just that. However, there were a few cleaning projects in which it didn’t do as good of a job as I had wanted.
One of those was cleaning up grape juice from my area rug. It required several different applications before I was able to successfully remove the stain. I had to use a lot more elbow grease than I would have liked with this product. On the other hand – I did notice that it really did leave Scotchgard behind because the next time I cleaned the same spot it was easier to clean off.
All things taken into consideration, I think this is just a decent cleaner. Which is a shame because I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, it just couldn’t get the job done the way it should.
