Tent and Gear Waterproofing Spray
If you’re headed out for a group camping trip, you’ll want a bottle of Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof on hand. This water-repellent spray works two ways: Not only does it waterproof your tent and gear to keep moisture out, but it also provides protection from ultraviolet (UV) rays that can weaken the fabric. Apply it on wet or dry gear.
Outdoor Gear and Boots Waterproofer
For an extra layer of tent waterproofing, this heavy-duty option from Sof Sole is a favorite among camping enthusiasts. Its long-lasting waterproof bond repels water, dirt and oil. The aerosol bottle works best on hiking and work boots, tents and outdoor gear.
Outdoor Furniture Sun and Water Shield
For a water-repellent spray for outdoor fabrics, like patio furniture and covers, grill covers, flags, awnings and even boat and spa covers, try Scotchguard Sun & Water Shield. It also protects against the sun’s harmful UV rays and is safe for leather and suede. Reapply seasonally for optimal results.
Umbrella and Jacket Water Shield
A dependable all-around water-repellent spray, Scotchgard’s heavy-duty water shield can be applied on everything from sun umbrellas to snow and rain jackets. Use it on patio furniture and other outdoor items to repel moisture and create a durable water barrier.
Leather and Suede Waterproofing Spray
The Tarrago High Tech Nano Protector provides protection from water and stains via nanotechnology. After application, the individual fibers are covered by nano elements, and the fibers become more water- and dirt-repellent while still allowing for breathability. Spray it on sneakers and handbags, and once dry, small drops of water will slide to the surface.
Patio Cover and Tent Waterproofing Spray
When it comes to protecting your outdoor covers from water and stains, Star Brite’s waterproofing spray is a solid all-around option. It works well on patio and deck furniture, umbrellas and outdoor gear. Plus, it offers UV protection to keep your gear in tip-top shape.

Purses, Shoes and Accessories Spray
Keep your shoes and handbags dry and safe from stains with Apple Brand’s rain and stain repellent. This water-repellent spray forms an invisible layer that protects your items from water spots, salt stains, oil and grease. It even protects against coffee and wine spills. This spray doesn’t leave any sticky or gummy residue and won’t change the color of your fabrics.
Protect your leather products with Chamberlain’s Leather Milk. This non-sticky, no-mess protection cream repels water while also deep conditioning the leather. If you have a leather couch or leather car interior, this is a must-have to protect against spills. This easy-to-apply cream also helps extend the life of your leather while preserving that original leather smell. Use it on handbags, shoes, jackets and boots, too.
