Is Scotchguarding necessary?
We've been having a heck of a time finding a sofa/loveseat combination that will fit our family room space. The PB Greenwich is perfect in dimension and we love the style. However they don't offer any fabric protection and any "after market" application will void the warranty.
The sofas I have currently have all had some sort of scotchguard-like treatment, and we haven't had any trouble cleaning even the nastiest of messes (two little kids, occasional canine visitors and lots of red wine drinkers). But since I have nothing to compare to, I have no idea if today's microfiber type fabrics are just as stain resistent/cleanable without the extra protection.
There's a retailer that we've used before that offers (and highly recommends) their own brand of scotchguarding, but we don't like their sofa options as much.
Anyone want to chime in? Do I really need the stain guard? Anyone have any experience getting stains out of PB upholstery?
Thanks in advance!
