We had a 2 seat couch (loveseat) and a Lazyboy recliner that were
recovered by an upholstery shop.
We had the recliner treated with that Guardsman stuff, my wife did the
couch with a store brand aerosol, took 3 cans. $60.00 vs $17.00
Both lasted about 8 months before they would absorb spills rather than
She got a different product from an Amway Distributor that was
actually cheaper and lasted much longer, over a year easily, more like
a year and a half. 3 cans did the loveseat AND the recliner.
After that she used Scotchguard which also only lasted about 8 months.
So from then on, she would only use the Amway made stuff, Diferb?
Driferb? Difarb? whatever, something that sounds like that.
I used Scotchguard on an outdoor covered glider, soaked that canopy
top and in 2 years it still don't leak on drop through the fabric.
Since then I have learned that there are two types, water based and
solvent based. Solvent based is the longest lasting and doesn't build
up as the water based type does.
