Red Chili Vinyl & Leather Dye


Our Red Chili paint restores, conditions, and preserves vinyl or leather furniture like a dye. It adds UV protection and won’t flake, peel, or crack.

Red Chili is a bold red color. It is a step down from a fire engine red, so it has a regal feel while still being very vibrant and bright. A coat of Clear Prep+Finish™ is highly recommended as a topcoat and sealer for all reds, but it will also add shine.  

It conceals stains, fading, discoloration, and scuffs while adding UV protection. Use Clear Prep+Finish™ to brighten the color by adding shine or to make a transparent glaze for use on aniline leather. Easily applied with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. Red Chili bonds to leather and vinyl, behaving more like a stain and less like a coating. It will not rub off on clothing once dried. Allow to cure before getting wet. Each bottle comes with an extra-long stir stick and gloves. Sponge and hair dryer not included.

  1. RED CHILI 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2017

    I have two tone Mexican leather chairs which were white and brown. The white got stained and grubby and couldnt be cleaned. I restored the brown with Cherrywood and the white i changed to Red Chili.
    They are just stunning! Im SO pleased.

  2. Great Product 5 Star Review

    I actually used the color Merlot, they custom mixed it for me because I originally used it to save my vinyl top almost 3 years ago. This is the second application, not bad in the hot Fl sun which destroys everything.

    This product is awesome. I used it to change the color of my bar stools from a dull color to a vibrant Chilli Pepper red. They look brand new.

    This is a beautiful deep red. It makes our couch feel more expensive. It is not a garrishly bright shade.

    The Red Chili recliner and Turquoise couch look great. I have to ask... Is this some alien technology that you got from a crashed UFO in area 51? cause no one believes me when I tell them how easy it is and how quick it went from brown to red and turquoise. You ladies have something special here. Thanks.

  7. Nice product!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2015

    We bought a new home, and we decided to buy an old, leather sofa from the sellers to use until we moved in.  Our plan was to toss the sofa when we were done with it.  Turns out, we needed a statement piece of furniture in a den area, so we decided to use Rub n Restore to turn the old, worn out sofa into a like-new eye popper.  We bought the Red Chili dye and the Clear Prep & Finish.  We followed the directions and simply kept applying the products (mixed 50-50 right on the sponge) coat after coat.  Pretty easy DIY project.  The results were excellent.  It truly looks like a brand new sofa.  And, the color (though bold) is just what we wanted. 

  8. Fantastic Service and Product 5 Star Review

    I ordered this product at 3pm mid-week and I was so surprised that it was on my desk the next day. Given I live in the same state....still that was incredible! The Dye worked as it was advertised and per the videos. Thank you very much.
