Luckily I ran across this water seal product that makes fabric waterproof, stain resistant, fade resistant and durable!
But don’t worry – the fabric still remains soft to the touch! No crunchy, stiff fabrics at my house – no way! We’re all about comfiness here!

How to Waterproof and Stain Resistant Fabric
I used this amazing waterproof spray for fabrics and gave both sides of my cushions two coats. It doesn’t leave any odor!
You can use it on pillows, tablecloths and patio umbrellas too!
I love this stuff – it doesn’t make the fabric stiff or crunchy so it’s still super soft to sit on! It’s super quick and easy to use!
This is such an amazing way to use beautiful indoor pillows and textiles outside and make them super durable! I love that it’s fade proof so it protects fabrics from sun and UVA/UVB damage.
Now our outdoor seat cushions on our front porch will remain nice and dry!
Look at how the water beads on the fabric! It’s not soaking in!
Also – if you’re a sewer you can sew up your own pillow covers from fabric, spray them with the waterproof spray and then use them outside.
What an ideal way to make indoor upholstered dining chairs and ottomans stain resistant too!
I hope you like my tip on how to waterproof indoor cushions!
