New research and development in nanotechnology has completely revolutionized the fabric industry. No more scratchy, limited color choices, chemically treated fabric or boring microfiber that looks great in the show room but just doesn’t hold up to daily wear.
This past May while at Blogfest we were all given a sample of one of the newest high performance fabrics called CRYPTON. According to the Crypton website, “Fueled by cutting-edge technology, Crypton is the only patented and tested process capable of delivering permanent protection against stains, moisture, bacteria and odors.”
Yesterday I decided to give it a “test stain” and see if the hype was true. Here is my test sample before. A beautiful shade of green with a soft velvety texture.
Here is what the company has to say about the fabric.
I tested 4 staining items I had handy in my frig. Yellow mustard, steak sauce, strawberries and blueberries and olive oil.
The first thing I noticed is that my items just sat there. Nothing seemed to seep in and when I tipped the sample everything (except the mustard) started to roll off, just as if I had put them on glass. I then rubbed everything in.
I had planned to let everything sit for about 10-15 minutes but I got involved in something else and by the time I went back to my sample it was over 30 minutes. I simply rinsed the fabric under the faucet, spread a little dish soap on it and scrubbed. I must admit I was a little skeptical but absolutely everything came right off. The strawberry stain took the longest to get out but after a few minutes even that stain came clean.
After my sample dried it looked exactly like it did originally. In fact, I couldn’t even tell where the food had been.
After my test, all I can say is I’m a believer! Crypton fabric is the real deal and if you have kids or pets or want to use it outside I think Crypton is the perfect choice.
Have you heard of Crypton?
