There is a comparison chart near the bottom of the page. The red one can only apply on "Delicate or dry-clean-only fabrics", but the black one doesn't mention this limitation. However, the result may be the same. You can google it and see if anyone else used both and have reviews on them.

I find the comment (See below). Most likely they work both the same. The black one is probably more heavy duty and targeting high traffic area. I guess you have to try it yourself and see what is the outcome. They both have coupons. The worst case is that you will only be stupid once to buy the expensive one once you try it.

Since it has S&S, you can place orders on both products first and think later in case of Amazon deletes the coupon or inflates the price of the product. If you know any car mechanic, they may be able to give you a better idea base on their experience.

It seems the black one is selling cheaper in Walmart USA. If you will go to USA, then you may want to buy there.

Comment : The Scotchgard(TM) Auto Interior Fabric and Carpet Protectorhas better protection against oils than the Scotchgard Fabric and Upholstery Protector. The Auto Protector can also be used on the carpeting and floor mats of a vehicle where the Fabric and Upholstery Protector will not penetrate far enough to protect those areas.

Is there anything special about the Auto fabric version? It's $4 more than the others. I'd just want to spray the carpet in the car and trunk.

If I understand correctly, the article doesn't mention how dangerous we directly use the product from a customer perspective. It only mentions how it causes the water contamination and the health issues of the workers and people living close to the manufacturer.

I believe the red one should work, but you may need to spray it more frequently for high traffic area.

That should be reason enough not to use the product. The manufacturer needs to step up their protection of the workers and the environment.

I agree that the manufacturer should find a way to protect the workers and anyone living around there. I believe this can be done with nowadays technology although the manufacturing cost will be higher. However, avoiding to use the product or stop producing the chemical will not solve the actual problem. Otherwise, we will not have any materials to build our house and everyone will live inside a tent (In fact, the tent may be also made with chemicals). Besides, the chemical is not just used on Scotchgard, it is being used on other products such as non-stick frying pan. I believe more people are using the frying pan than Scotchgard.

I just use the "tell us about a lower price?" function to message Amazon since Canadian Tire is selling at $9.99. Not sure Amazon will lower the price. Even if it does, it will take few days to one week for Amazon to change the price. You may want to try to send the message to Amazon too. It may speed up the process if Amazon is getting the message from more people

Good catch. The dark blue is the protector and the light blue is the cleaner
