Rust Vinyl & Leather Dye


Our Rust red oxide dye restores and conditions leather or vinyl. Use it on furniture or hot tub covers. Anti-UV and won’t flake, peel, or crack.


Rust is bold brick color. It is popular for matching hot-tub covers to redwood-stained decks. 


We discourage color changes on bonded leather or ultraleather due to the unstable nature of these materials.

Rust remedies discoloration, sun-fading, stains, and minor scuffs on leather and vinyl while adding UV protection. Rust bonds to leather and vinyl like a stain, not a paint or coating. It is easily applied with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. Once dried, it will not transfer onto clothing. Allow the dye to cure before getting it wet. Each bottle comes with gloves and an extra-long stir stick. Sponge not provided.

  1. Exceeded my expectations! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2019

    I bought a set of used Lane leather furniture (we have an English Mastiff -- need I say more?). It's in good condition but the leather was starting to look a little tired and scratched. I spent hours scouring the internet and came across the RNR videos. I decided to give it a try and just... wow. I've only refinished the ottoman so far but it literally looks new. I'm eager to get started on the couch and chair now. This product is super easy to use, is true to color and doesn't seem to require an MFA to produce a nice, consistent finish.

  3. Perfect match - Jeep CJ nutmeg 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Nov 2018

    Rust is a near perfect match for the original Jeep CJ nutmeg color. I used it for a pair of soft door uppers to match the rest of my interior and my soft top. It's taken me a long time to find the right product, couldn't be happier!

  6. everything you claimed! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Feb 2018

    I am just so thrilled that I found your product! I took a $45 chair that I found in a garage sale and turned it into a beautiful piece of furniture that now sits proudly in my home! Rub N Restore product was everything you claimed it would be: easy to use/apply, the color sample was perfect to restore back to its original state.

    It really a great product

  8. couldn't be happier 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2017

    After sanding and dyeing my favorite leather chair & ottoman they look, and feel, like new. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out! I had 2 different companies try and restore the look of my chair. Initially it looked fine but eventually cracked and looked like a mess within a short period of time. It took a little bit of time to sand and remove the “goop” that was left behind with previous attempts. Rub n Restore's dye went on very evenly and, again, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. So glad I found this!

  9. Great product and great color 5 Star Review

  10. Great product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2016

    I am so happy I found this product. I have had my leather set for over 10 years. Sun damage from skylights and glass patron doors had faded certain sections, and my big Labrador had left a scratch on one day of the cushions. I really started with you tube to see if there was a way to repair the scratch and then found multiple testimonials for this product. I chose the rust color since it matched the cushions and exposed areas the best even though the original color leaned to more of a cherry. I will include before and after pictures since I am so happy with the product. So easy to use and I could have mixed colors easily if wanted. I like the suggestions that you use less if you still want to have a bit of the variegated natural color. I way over bought because I was afraid I would run out of product. Rub n restore was fantastic about returning both the extra run n restore as well as extra cleaning product. I only needed one 16 ounce bottle of each. The clear prep and finish made it look like new! I also used them super glue trick for the scratch, and only I can notice the repair!

  11. Not the product I thought it would be 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2016

    May work for others but not my project. Tried on a chair. Looked like painted plastic with streaks. I returned the product, and was refunded in full. I will get the chairs professionally done.

  12. LOVE IT! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2015

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! I have a small sofa/love seat set that is12 years old. I was ready to kick it to the curb. I actually offered it to my youngest daughter who is in college and her response "no thank you Mom.!" I just sent her a photo of the sofa after refinishing it with Rub N Restore and her response was "please save it for me Mom." Your product is flipping amazing! I am actually adding two new pieces to the set. I had my husband drag out two old office chairs that have been in my garage for 10 years and I'm refinishing them with Rub N Restore! Thank you for this truly amazing product!

  13. First class 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2015

    This company and it’s product deserve the highest possible rating for customer satisfaction. The customer service is excellent. The product is so easy to use that you simply cannot make a mistake. The finished result is absolutely first class and would be be proudly and prominently displayed in any home or business. Trust Rub ’n Restore to revive and refinish your leather furniture beyond your expectations and do not bother to shop any where else.

    I sent a sample to the company for a custom color. My furniture was so badly faded that even a custom color matched to the original would have required dyeing the whole chair. They analyzed the sample and recommended a mixture of Rust and Cherrywood and include a free empty bottle for easy mixing.

    I babysitted my uncles dog and she ran up and down my leather furniture, this fixed all the scratches and damage to my couch. Quick dry time and ease of use. It doesn't even look like my couch was ever damaged. Very happy!
