I was drying a tent, a REI Grand Hut 6, in my garage when a mountain bike tire blew off a rim, lightly spraying the base of my tent with Stan's sealant. I've wiped the bulk of the sealant off the tent, but some remains. Should I be concerned about the tent? Any steps that I should take?

Thanks for reaching out to the Community with your question. I don’t think it is likely that this will cause any damage to your tent. I think as long as you made efforts to clean it off thoroughly (using a water/soap solution should do the trick) I think you don’t have much to be concerned with.
Thanks again for reaching out to us!
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
I recommending double checking by setting it up in the backyard, if you have one, and spraying it with a hose. If you detect any seepage, you can spray it with a can of waterproofing stuff that walmart sells in the sporting goods section.
