Scotchgard Can't Post

In the old forums there was a discussion about Scotchgard and which type to use (red or green can perhaps?). Does anyone have any info. on this? I have a new container I'd like to treat before I get it too muddy.

Thanks,

I used the kind with the red cap. I think it was originally made for automotive apholstry. It worked fine. I spent about a week putting it on. I really needed it since my container is black and white. So what did you get?

Safe landings,

Webvan came last night and brought the kind with the red cap. It was the only one they sold. I looked at Wal-Mart and couldn't find it. I'll let you know how it goes.

Not a very efficient URL, but its the link to all the scotchgards that 3M makes...they got quite a few of em. I think that I am going to go with the outdoor upholstery stuff...if I can find it!

I use silicon lube on the fabric once -a-month to repell dirt. I clean my container packed using a wet vac to extract
dry cleaning fluid.
