Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend wearing the included gloves when applying ReColour by Wipe New® because once dry it can be difficult to remove from your skin, and may also be slightly irritating to some people

.

Once you start applying ReColour by Wipe New® to a surface, we recommend that you complete that entire surface before stopping (for example, if you start treating a table, finish the entire table before stopping). Stopping and starting again later on the same surface may, in some cases, lead to a visible difference in the final result due to variations in humidity, light, temperature, and other factors. If you must stop and start again later, try to stop at inconspicuous spot on the surface.

ReColour by Wipe New® must cure for 24 hours prior to being exposed to any type of moisture including rain, puddles, dew, sprinklers, mist, etc. If a treated surface gets wet prior to the end of the 24-hour curing period, spotting or streaking may occur.

The sponge tip of the applicator brush will allow you to touch up small nooks and crannies around your headlights, grill inserts, rear view mirrors, interior HVAC vents, and other hard to reach areas. Simply dip the sponge tip into your ReColour by Wipe New® bottle and apply in the desired area.

ReColour by Wipe New® contains no dyes, however, it does harden as it dries and may damage your clothing.

Application to a clear coated surface is not an advertised use for ReColour by Wipe New® and is done so at the owner’s sole risk. Wipe New®’s Protection Guarantee does not extend to the use of ReColour by Wipe New® on clear coat painted surfaces.

Although it is more easily removed if wiped from undesirable surfaces immediately, cured ReColour by Wipe New® can be removed using a small amount of automotive polishing compound. We recommend that you apply the compound to a microfiber cloth then work it into the affected area in a circular motion. With a little time and effort the compound will remove ReColour by Wipe New® from the surface, and you can use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe away any remaining compound residue.

ReColour by Wipe New® is guaranteed to last for two years on most surfaces, but may require reapplication over time to surfaces that are regularly exposed to oils from the skin and/or friction such as vinyl/leather seats, benches, knobs, etc.

You can use extremely fine high-grit sandpaper (such as 2000 or 3000 grit) to sand the surface and remove ReColour by Wipe New®.

Yes. ReColour by Wipe New® will restore shine to the surface, protect it from UV damage, and make it easier to clean. If there is any UV damage underneath the existing gel/clear coat, then Wipe New® will not remove it. Before applying, ensure the surface is thoroughly cleansed and allowed to dry completely, and protect the surface from moisture for 24 hours post-application.
