Weatherproofing(resisting) seats

Does starching seats help with rain? Its getting to the time of year to have top off more. I bought my jeep late last fall and have not been through it yet. I know with pop up showers theres going to be a time when my jeep is sitting outside topless and is going to get wet. Does starch help at all or is there another product(I know some seat covers repel)? Thanks!

Rather than starch, I'd buy some scotch guard spray and use it.... Starch will get all flakey and weird, and make your butt crusty when you sweat.... There are lots of water repellent sprays made for fabric, check at your local outdoor/sporting goods stores. They stink when wet, so apply them topless outside, and allow plenty of time for them to dry.

Scotch guard is what I meant. I just had a brain fart. My brain doesn't work so good in the morning.
