Shaw Clear Touch has R2X stain resistance. R2X is resistance times two. R2x application yields total fiber coverage. The yarn is treated from top to bottom, instead of just the surface, so any absorption from the base is minimized. The increased repellency of R2X keeps liquid stains on the face of the carpet where they can be easily removed. Stains do not penetrate to the back of the carpet and do not wick back up to the surface after initial cleaning.
