Microfiber Fabric

I recently ordered two chairs that are upholstered with microfiber
polyester fabric. After doing some internet research, I elected not
to have them sprayed with the stuff that makes them moisture
resistant. I figured they were "by nature" already resistant to it
and it would be a waste of money. Now I am wondering if I made a bad
choice. Does anyone know if it's possible to buy a can of spray at
the fabric store and do it myself? Do you have experience with fabric
that has not been treated? Have any problems with it? I don't even
know the name, only that it is not Scotchguard.

Hi Dottie, We have chairs and a couch in microfiber that is not treated (as far as I know). They are wonderful! I have 4 kids that spill on them. I just use a wet microfiber cloth to wipe off all the spills, grease, etc. I think you made the right decision.

We also have a micro fiber sofa and loveseat. I LOVE them. Easy easy easy clean up .. and that is w/ 2 little kids and 2 little dogs. I have not seen a microfiber cloth? Where do you get those? Right now I just use a white washcloth, however it can leave a little lint behind.

Sometimes furniture stores sell Scotchguard-ing as an extra "sale". I remember when I bought some furniture, we decided not to have it Scotchguarded. The salesman looked at us really funny, as if to say "Don't say I didn't tell you so.." and was surprised when we didn't go for the $138 for Scotchguarding. We bought four cans of the spray, and when DH turned over one of the easy chairs, inside was a tag saying it was Scotchguarded at the factory. We figured the $138 was the salesman's "tip"!
I currently own a sofa that has not been treated. It is not a microfiber, but a rayon/poly fabric. Other than the snags from the cat wanting to get up on it, it's been just fine. I shampoo it twice a year and I've had it for over 8 years. If you wipe up spills quickly, you should have no problems.
