Last fall I found a product that I absolutely wanted to share with for your spring projects…Thompson’s WaterSeal Fabric Seal.
We have a patio that we don’t use nearly as much as we’d like to because it isn’t covered, and the chair cushions get wet. We mostly bring the cushions inside, and drag them out only when we dine picnic-style. But that’s a chore, and who wants one more chore, right?
When I was at Haven conference last summer, I saw their demo and stopped dead in my tracks. Then I kind of badgered the Thompson’s rep until they sent me some to try.
- Prevents Water Damage
- Resists Color Fading (with UV protection)
- Repels Spills and Stains
The directions say to do a water test first. If water soaks into your cushions and leaves a dark mark, then they need treatment. If water beads up, then you are probably ok for now. I checked two sets of my cushions.
After two applications on both sets…WE HAVE BEADING!
It only took two cans to completely cover both sets of cushions. I may have done 3 coats, just to use up what was left in the can.
So this summer we can leave the cushions outside. Where they belong. Which is good because Bob, the neighborhood cat, has decided he likes the chairs better with the cushions.
You might be on the verge of investing in new patio cushions yourself. Thanks to the generosity of the Thompson’s folks, I have a couple of cans left over, and I want them to go to a good home.You might have trouble finding this is in stores this early (although I hear it is now at Lowes and on Amazon Thompsons Fabric Seal), but you can get yours here.
