Applying Sisal Life Protector on the finished rug will help repel water, resist liquid spills and retard soiling. Sisal Life is recommended for all natural fiber rugs. Applying Sisal Life Protector will NOT GUARANTEE that your sisal will never stain, but it will reduce the chances should a spill occur. Please note: Sisal Life Protector is only available for ground shipment within the continental U.S.A. One bottle will cover approximately a 6x9 area rug (54 sq. ft.).
