It's stain resistant but has a very low melting point and loves oil, making greasy spots more difficult to remove. Polyester- is more environmentally friendly, but it isn't as stain resistant as nylon. Vacuuming regularly can significantly increase the life span of this lower cost and fairly stain-resistant option.
