Is there a product that’s safe to use to protect vintage upholstery? Janice recently found a pair of these lovely brushed-velveteen (?) Hollywood Regency chairs, and asks what to do to keep the mint-condition upholstery in great shape. Readers had such smart-sounding suggestions to the recent post about how to get smells out of vintage sofas and chairs that I thought I’d better put this question in front of them, too.

I just nabbed a pair of really cool vintage upholstered armchairs and the fabric is in incredible shape! I want to keep them that way – aside from not allowing my kids or cats on them, can you recommend a protector spray? Is plain old Scotchgard safe on vintage fabric? Thanks for any info! – Janice
Readers: Do you have some experience and advice for Janice?
