Are there any drawbacks or risks I should know about before I Scotch-Guard my new couch?
I recently get a new couch from Pottery Barn -- it's got a canvas slip cover and is a light color. I'd like to Scotch Guard it to help avoid stains, but I've never done that before and wondered if there's anything I should know before I start spraying...
Yes, you will have to warn any visitors from Scotland to not come near it or else they will be automatically repelled and ejected from the vicinity of the couch. This can also happen to anyone who is drinking Scotch, using Scotch tape, wearing plaid or playing bagpipes. The Scotch Guard is intensely serious in protecting against anything that might suggest Scotchness.
( Sorry, I obviously don't really have an answer for you...And please excuse the silliness... Scotch Guard always does that to me.)
Lol, Rochelle As someone who is Scottish by birth, I resemble that answer .
I haven't heard of any risks with it...
I Scotch Guarded a suite that was covered in pale coffee-colored velvet. Like you, I was really worried it would stain but it was absolutely fine.
I was so glad I did, too - six months later, I had a party and a guest spilled an entire glass of red wine all over it! I just soaked it up with paper towel and it all came off, with no stain whatsoever.
I do suggest you spray a less noticeable patch first - say, down the bottom at the back - just to be on the safe side.

How long do you take to think about a subject you want to write about before you write the article.I take far too much time just thinking about a subject before I begin to write. I feel like I am crippling myself by not just jumping in and writing.

Name one thing you learned about from another Hubber's Hub that you didn't know about before? Saw this question on Relache's interview at the "The Relache Hub" (http://hubpages.com/hub/relache#mod_46817) and thought it would be a fun question for all of us to answer.

Does this automatically use your URL tracker, or should I manually link to other hubs using my URL tracker?
