Never Paint Again! Instead Wipe It New, Keep It New!

Finally, a no mess alternative to painting! No more: paint brushes, spray cans, tape, drop cloths, messy overspray, or ugly drips to clean up!

Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New® is the first ever wipe-on clear coating and sealant designed to wipe away years from outdoor furniture, grills, shutters, fixtures and more in just a few minutes! There’s never been a better way to protect and restore! First, clean and dry the surface. Then simply remove the pre-soaked starter cloth from the package and wipe over the target areas for a shiny new look. Unlike traditional coatings, ReColour does not lay on top of the surface. Instead, it becomes one with it restoring original colour while adding new properties that protect the surface from UV and liquids to keep it looking new for years! That’s right! Our proprietary nano-polymer formula penetrates deep to protect and restore for years against elements including oxidation, fading, sun and water damage and more!

Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New® is the fast and easy way to restore those aging, weather-beaten items around your home. It’s convenient to do on the fly.

ReColour by Wipe New® - Instructions

To maximize coverage area it is important to prep all surfaces intended for application at the same time before opening Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New®. When applying Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New®, wear the protective nitrile gloves and always use it in a well-ventilated area. Failure to wear protective gloves may result in injury. Let Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New® dry for 1 hour in a dry, well-ventilated area before touching the treated surface.

Contact with any type of moisture during or within 24 hours of application will result in streaking or spotting. Allow treated surface to cure for 24 hours before exposure to moisture (rain, dew, sprinklers, etc.)

Do not apply Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New® to hot surfaces or in direct sunlight as this may cause the surface to appear streaked. Ensure the surface is clean, dry, and cool to the touch before applying ReColour.

If Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New® comes in contact with an unintended surface wipe it off immediately with a dry cloth.
If ReColour begins to dry on the applicator cloth, streaking may occur. Once the applicator cloth dries out completely, it cannot be reused and must be discarded (see step 3 for disposal instructions).

Store Rust-Oleum ReColour by Wipe New® in a cool dry place and discard within one year of purchase.

1) Clean all surfaces intended for application at the same time and allow them to dry completely prior to application of ReColour by Wipe New®.

PLASTIC/VINYL/LEATHER/STONE: Wash with soap and water or a mild degreaser and scrub with a brush to get ingrained dirt out of all the tight areas (make sure the brush is appropriate for cleaning the surface without damage). If the surface has been treated before with waxes, conditioners, or silicon-based products, then use a degreaser to remove all remnants of the previously used products.

METAL: New metal surfaces that are being coated for corrosion protection can simply be wiped down with a dry rag to remove dust prior to applying ReColour by Wipe New®. Most metallic surfaces that have been exposed to the environment will need to be washed with soap and water or a mild degreaser and scrubbed with a brush to get ingrained dirt out of all the tight areas. Non-painted metallic surfaces that have been exposed to the outdoors and have a bit of surface mineralization (ex: brass, zinc, stainless steel surfaces, etc.) can be washed and dried with soap and water and then further prepared with a light scrubbing from steel wool to remove the surface mineralization. All dust or metallic particles will have to be wiped off with a dry cloth and the surface clean and dry prior to coating.

2) Put on the chemical resistant gloves, ensure that you are in a well ventilated area and that the surface intended for application is completely dry. Open the 2oz bottle of Rust-Oleum ReColour and carefully pour it onto one of the provided microfiber applicators. We recommend the sponge for restoring textured surfaces or the cloths for smooth surfaces. Pour enough ReColour to completely saturate the applicator such that it is nearly dripping. It is important that the applicator is saturated to avoid streaking during the application. Wipe over the surface in a single wipe, from one row to the next, with a slight overlap (like mowing a lawn) until the surface is completely coated. It is not necessary to scrub or buff the surface–doing so will lead to undesirable results and product waste.

If streaking on the surface appears, then rewet the applicator and continue the application process. It is important to complete the surface that you started before ReColour by Wipe New® dries so that the coat cures evenly.

On plastic or vinyl surfaces that have high exposure to sunlight, a second coat can be applied before the first coat cures. See Frequently Asked Questions for more details.

3) When finished, set the applicator cloths in a location out of the reach of children and allow them to dry completely prior to discarding (a few hours).

The surface will dry to the touch in about 1 hour and be cured completely after 24 hours. Do not allow a treated surface to come in contact with direct moisture (rain, dew, puddles, etc.) for 24 hours after application.
