Upholstery cleaning is one of the main problems regarding the inner maintenance of a vehicle. Finding solutions to the usual brewery spots, grease stains, sausage marks and their smells is complicated due to both the nature of the dirt and the tedious undo of seats. At the forefront of the nowadays use of carbon fluoride based products, we present here the development of a hydrophobic and stain-resistance fabrics by using nanotechnology. Hydrophobic fabrics are water-resistant, self-cleaning and guarantee a long lasting protection against dirt. The addition of nanoparticles into upholstery fabrics result in surfaces which keep the superficial tension of water or dirt drops. Although this method drastically reduces liquid-fabric contacts and enhances the stain-resistance of the upholstery, intrinsic properties of the fabric fibers do not change
