FAQs

protectME is a water based, non toxic fabric protector that is safe to use on most fabric or textile surfaces: cotton, suede, leather, synthetics, wool and silk to name a few.

Some precautions:

  • As some colour dyes are not colour fast, particularly rugs that are using vegetable dyes for example (usually vintage or handmade rugs), we recommend testing the surface in a small inconspicuous area for colour fastness prior to applying all over.
  • If you have applied another fabric protector prior to using protectME, please read our FAQs.

For most standard upholstery and fabric surfaces we recommend using 100ml of fabric protector per M2 of surface. It doesn’t need to be exact, just make sure the fabric is saturated with product.

Please note saturating does not apply for leather, suede and velvet. We recommend a light spray and then gently “buffing” the product into the fibres with a soft, clean cloth. If you are spraying large areas, we recommend using our battery sprayer to ensure even application and avoid wrist fatigue.

Some fabrics will require a second coat of product to be applied with an additional 100ml per M2 within 30 minutes of the first application. These include but are not limited to:

  • Heavy or thick fabrics, as they tend to be more absorbent, such as heavyweight linen;
  • Textured fabrics or materials, like woven fabrics where the weave is particularly visible; rugs and carpets, especially shaggy type ones with long strands;
  • Outdoor fabrics and rugs, especially if not kept undercover or exposed to the elements;
  • Highly absorbent fabrics and materials, such as linen and jute (Jute rugs: Protecting, Cleaning & Styling)

If you are unsure about the type of fabric you have or have any questions, send our friendly customer service team a message and include a photo of your fabric and we’ll do our best to help you.

Moist carpet doesn’t always show its dampness, and the moisture can be trapped below the surface. In other words, mould can appear on carpets and rugs without any major exposure to water or other liquids.

But fear not, mould is stoppable! When it comes to mould on carpets in your home, preventative measures are the most successful. Follow these 3 simple steps to avoid the musty odour, discolouration and the constant combat to remove mould from your carpet!

  1. Increase airflow 
  2. Clean your carpet regularly
  3. Use a non toxic carpet protector

Yes you can! Given it’s woven with thick, natural fibres, jute rugs tend to be rather absorbent and removing stains can become tricky. Luckily, adding a protective layer to your rug should repel most stains or spills. Our non toxic fabric protector spray is a breathable, invisible coating that will protect while maintaining your rug’s natural appearance for up to 3 years per application.

Given that jute fibres have high absorbency, we recommend increasing the standard 100ml of fabric protector per M2 of surface to double.
