Stone Vinyl & Leather Dye
Our Stone leather dye restores and conditions leather as well as vinyl. Great for 1997-2007 GM or Chevy "Stone Grey" car interiors. Won’t crack or stain clothing.
Stone is a versatile light grey color. It is darker than Ash and lighter and more neutral than either Taupe or Slate. Call your local GM or Chevy parts department with your VIN# to determine if "Stone Grey" is the correct interior color code for your vehicle.
Use Stone to conceal discoloration, sun-fading, stains, and minor scuffs on leather and vinyl and add UV protection. Stone penetrates leather and vinyl, behaving more like a stain and less like a thick coating or paint. If changing a very dark piece to Stone, use Clear Prep+Finish™ to seal the dye after every 3-4 layers. This will add strength and complete the color change using less layers of dye. Changing the color of bonded leather or ultraleather is strongly discouraged due to the unstable nature of these materials.
Stone Rub 'n Restore® 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.

Not gray at all, came out the same as the beige above

We'll unfortunately I was pressed for time, I ordered this and the clear conditioner just in time before my mom had to move. I was so excited to get started, after doing one half of the couch, I was waiting for the paint to cure, thinking it was going to eventually turn the grayish color it shows but it didn't. Coat after coat I thought it will get there, but it never did and now the couch is useless, garbage. It ruined the couch, the clear stuff is useless watery nothing, it does nothing on its own so that too was a waste of money. All in all I spent 100 on just these two products and all they did was ruin our leather sofa. I'm crushed, and out of time. I guess my only hope is spray paint and paint thinner, which I should've just done to begin with.

We bought the product as our light colored vinyl furniture was yellowing from the south window exposure. Very apprehensive as the three pieces (sofa, loveseat and chair) were only 2 years old. So easy to apply. Perfect results, perfect color match. Looks like new furniture from the factory once again. Those that see our living room furniture can't believe it is the same set!
This product is amazing.

I was so skeptical and intended to give this couch away! I am glad I tried it. I was skimpy with the dye at first but when I finished a portion of the couch and looked at how much I had used I then began to be liberal with it and it works better. This couch was stained and nasty. It is now a beautiful piece! I may find thrift store pieces and do them and sell them! What a product!
I have a brand new chair

I used a mixture of Stone and Taupe (purchased 8-oz. bottles of each) to completely redo a worn-out, ugly, 20-year old brown leather chair. I changed the color to match the decor when I upgraded my master bedroom. I used several items to get the best application: slightly moist hand sponge and two paint brushes (small and large) to get into nooks and crannies. The dye completely covered the old brown places, but also evened out the areas that were sun-bleached and dry. I ended up using 2 coats in most places, but an additional coat where the leather had completely bleached out or had animal scratches. It was impossible to keep the dye off of the brass upholstery nails since I used the small paint brush to get dye all around the nail heads. Once everything was dry, 0000 steel wool did not work to remove the dye from the nail heads without damaging the adjacent dye on the leather, so I ended up removing the 200 (!!!!!) nails with a upholstery tool. I put those nails in a jar with a very small amount of paint remover and swished it around...all of the dye came off easily! I then used the steel wool to remove any lingering dye, and tapped the nails back into the chair. Finished the next day with multiple coats of a very good leather oil which I let soak in. FYI, I used no primer or clear coat. This chair now looks like a very expensive, brand new piece of furniture! Fantastic product and definitely recommended!
10 STARS of 5!

We used ~12 oz of dye and 7 oz of primer and conditioner on original 1955 Bonanza Beechcraft seats. Took two days...and WE love the way it turned out! Again these seats are 61 years old! We will tell all our 'pilot friends' about this product!
Wow and thanks!

Hi Lesandre and CC:
Got the 'slate' and 'stone' dyes (along with the patching compound) yesterday.
2 words: 'WOW' and 'THANKS'. Both the sofa and chair (approx. 15 years old) literally look brand new. Unfortunately, I didn't take 'before' pictures, but the transformations are truly incredible. You're selling a phenomenal product (but you already knew that)!!!
Very Satisfied Customer!

We used the cleaner, dye and clear coat and can not be more happy with the outcome of our boat seats. You ladies have an amazing product and I'm happy sharing our pics with all our friends as we have posted them on our social media sites. Our friends are all amazed at the transformation and are asking a ton of questions. We are referring everyone to your web site. Thank you!!
The seats are all original on a 2002 premier 18 ft pontoon. The previous owner didn't take very good care of it for most its life. Leaving it sit outside under the elements and never really cleaning it. We have owned it for the past 4 yrs and couldn't take the look of the seats anymore. It was so bad that we didn't even like taking our friends out on it. We thought about having the seats all redone until I received a quote for the supplies and labor. We had tried almost every cleaner out on the market along with good ol elbow grease scrubbing and power washing. NOTHING WORKED! Then I stumbled onto your product. I will admit, it sounded to good to be true. After a weekend of cleaning and staining we did it!! Thank you again.
As with anything time will tell, we do have kids that love to have cannon ball competitions jumping off the boat and a dog that loves to swim then lay on the sun deck to dry. Im confident we made the right decision.
