Do I need to put a sealer on my sails after cleaning them

I soaked my Darcon sails in oxyclean for about an hour. Then went over both sides with a soft scrub brush. Rinsed them very well and hung them up in my heated warehouse to dry thoroughly. Now I'm wondering if I'm suppose to apply a sealer to them or are they good to go. For anyone who might be wondering the sails came out nice and white but the stains did not come out and I didnt expect them to. I was a little worried about the oxyclean breaking down the material so I only soaked them for a limited time. I didnt notice any deterioration on the sails from what I did.
