17 oz. Carpet and Rug Protector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Honestly Sad So unsatisfied with this product. I followed the instructions and even tested a spot to ensure the rug would not fade, BUT once I covered most of the rug, I began to notice fading. Uneven fading at that... Now my brand new rug looks faded and old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from carpet protection I've used Scotchguard fabric protector for the past 35 years for upholstery, pillows, seat cushions, car seats, etc. I was disappointed when I could not find it in any of the stores I frequented. I went to your site and found the stores listed within my area. I was soooo relieved when I found it that I bought extra since I didn't know what I would do without it! It has performed exceptionally well on repelling dirt, liquids, and stains and I now need it to protect the new wool throw rug in my remodeled kitchen. Thank you for a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessity for protecting area rugs This product works as promised! I used this on new area rugs because I'm quite accident-prone. After 3 moderate to severe spills, the rug still looks good. Bear in mind, it makes the rug/carpet spill RESISTANT not PROOF. We still had to do a little work to keep stains from setting in! But we are much better off than if we hadn't used the Scotchgard in the first place. My only complaint is that it does make the rug feel less soft and a little waxy. Not a big deal other than that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL PRODUCT I clean my own carpets/rugs and have used this for years. It gives much better protection than the commercial stuff the carpet cleaners use. All Scotchguard products are excellent, I use them all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My poor carpet Has New Life! After purchasing a electric home carpet cleaner I was so disappointed when the carpet got dirty faster than ever before. I visted Scotchguard's website and learned that I would be happier if I protected it with a carpet protectant! OMG! What a great product! My carpet has new life and most likely saved me over $2000, as I was going to break down and buy a new carpet! Thanks so much for your Scotchguard Carpet Protector! It works like nothing else. I am 57 years old and have never had success with a product like this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from vacuuming issues after use Seems to protect nicely, but left a residue that gripped the vacuum and made it very difficult to push. This lasted through about 10 cycles of vacuuming.
