ProofPlus™ provides excellent water repellency, but it does not make fabrics completely waterproof. It offers a powerful shield against liquid spills without compromising breathability.
For best performance, we recommend reapplying ProofPlus™ Fabric Protectors every 4-6 months.
If the protected item is being washed, we recommend applying after each wash.
Protected surfaces that encounter high abrasion may require reapplication more frequently.

We do not recommend using these products on Suede or Leather.
ProofPlus™ Fabric Protectors do not protect against pet accidents as urine is extremely acidic.

As defined by the EPA, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, Teflon and many other chemicals. PFAS chemicals, also known as Forever Chemicals, have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe, including in the United States since the 1940s. PFOA and PFOS have been the most extensively produced and studied of these chemicals. Both chemicals are bio-accumulative, making them very persistent in the environment and in the human body – meaning they don’t break down, and they can accumulate over time!
There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects. Researchers have linked PFAS exposure to serious health problems, including: risk of cancer, reproductive problems, increased diseases, & more.

Unfortunately, PFAS or "forever chemicals" are extremely common in household items. Here are just a few:
- non-stick cookware
- fast food packaging
- pet food packaging
- fire extinguishers
