    Don’t listen to Lance- this stuff is incredible. It will save you sooo much money on reupholstering and give you a fun DIY weekend project. I used the clear prep to soften this rough leather that had been kept outside then dyed the leather to black. It is truly amazing and feels softer than it probably did when it was first made! I have had no peeling, fading or transferring so far either and this is coming from a probably cheaper leather material..so yeah, don’t hesitate!

    I was able to revive a set of vintage vinyl chairs by using the black dye on the top portion of the chairs.



    I will say, it was important to use alcohol and the Flite cleaner to get these filthy chairs prepped. I had previously cleaned them with mild soap, but Flite really picked up so much more! I also used the filler and denim patches that I purchased from Amazon to fill in the bigger tears. I didn't do a professional job here, but it still made a big difference.



    When it was time to color, we took the chairs apart, since I didn't want to get black on the original Mustard colored seats. Then I used a foam brush to apply (although that is not recommended). It took about 3 coats to cover the mustard with black.



    I used the clear prep + primer alone over the black and it was really sticky after drying. Lesandre advised to mix the color and the clear to remedy. That did the trick.



    So in conclusion, the chairs are not perfect (largely due to my inexperience), but what a transformation! Great products for restoring and changing the color of vinyl furniture!

    originally a 15+ year old light blue chair but this black covered the original color and still left the leather so soft. It took me 2 bottles and about 5-6 coats. I applied it with a sponge. One thing that really helped with the smaller areas and creases was a paint brush (cheap Walmart craft paint brush). Great coverage and cleans easily. I had to let it sit for a few days to cure because of the humidity but after that it left no residue on my hands. 10/10 would buy again for future projects.

    Before I purchased, I contacted the company to ask if toxic. I was told it’s safe. Well, reading the bottle, I felt I needed to wear a hazmat suit. I would have returned it, however, there’s a restocking fee. I went ahead and dyed a tan leather Lazy-Boy recliner to black. I am very satisfied with the outcome. I did have to apply two coats & did 3 touch ups, in a few areas. Overall, yes I’m satisfied. Although I’m not going to eat it (ha) I do wish it was non-toxic.
    Reply from lesandre:
    Thanks, Robin. The hazard info on the label mandated by law assumes the worst (i.e. spray / airborne application and chronic use). This article has Safety Data sheets and breaks down the ingredients, many of which are already lurking in your home. The latex paint used to paint your house and the Tide used to wash your home aren't non-toxic either.

    We live in Florida and in winter the weather is nice so we open up for fresh air at night. We used your product Wed, and had the heat on the first couple days so it dried and was no problem but then it warmed enough to open up. Sunday morning, the back of my shirt was black, and it has continued coming off on my clothes and wearing off the recliner. It worked as advertised so long as the humidity stayed low.
    Reply from lesandre:
    This is unusual and should be easily corrected. Buff the surface with a dry rag to remove any unstable pigment and allow more time to cure. If the issue persists, a clear sealer can be added for durability. Our Clear Prep+Finish can be quite shiny on its own. We do also offer a special order Satin Sealer. Fear not, the shirt can be saved. Pre-treat it (washing soda or borax are great if you have it), and launder as usual. It should wash out. Our stuff doesn't permanently stain fabric except in its liquid state.
    How awesome is this??

    So I recently found my favorite style chair and ottoman but it came in the color brown. I was going to reupholster both with a black leather but the places I looked into quoted me $600 to $1100. That was way to much but I almost did it until I stumbled upon Rub N Restore and their fantastic products. So I purchased the cleaner and the color. Great easy to follow instructions. When I was done I was in awe of the results. And when it was all dried and I was past the 48 hours cure time I sat down squirmed around in the chair and there was no color rub off. I am super happy that I have my favorite chair in a the color I wanted for a fraction of the cost others were charging. Just look at my and everyone else’s pictures that are being posted. This product is legit and you should feel confident in using it. Super satisfied!!

    This is my second time using RubnRestore. The first time was when we bought our used sectional sofa. It was brown and it needed to be freshened up. After we were done it looked like a brand new sofa. This time it's the same sofa and a few years later, we decided we wanted a different color, so we redid the whole thing black. Once again it looks fantastic. We still need to add a couple more coats but I like it so far!

    We bought our sofa second-hand. I was disappointed when we picked it up ( at night) because I thought it was black. However, I figured I might be able to work with the color - especially since I loved the shape and style of the sofa.



    The previous owner told me that there were no scratches, tears, etc, but when we saw it in the daylight that wasn't true. I contacted her about it, but did not get a reply. I then conditioned the sofa (it was so dry!) which helped, but I wasn't quite happy with it.



    All of this led me to you. You were so helpful with all of my questions during the process and your wealth of information beforehand was invaluable. I researched many choices, but this is mainly why I went with you- because of your customer service. Having someone to talk to who understands the process, developed the product, and isn't just someone answering questions at a call center helped me make my decision and I honestly am so thankful.



    I love, love, love my sofa now. My family loves it too and it looks so expensive! It is the sofa of my dreams and your product made it softer, more beautiful, and it now has the look of a beautiful leather jacket that is perfectly worn-in. It is absolutely stunning.



    Your product was so incredibly easy to work with. I was completely astounded at this realization, but you knew this because of your experience with it. Now I am looking for other items I can restore using your product.



    I  also posted before, during, and after pics on my FB page. Many of my friends asked about it and I gave them your information knowing it is a product I highly recommend.



    My husband has a small business- a bespoke cabinet/woodwork business. He started building porch swings in our garage ( 6 years ago), to designing and building huge (jobs) in his own workshop. I am very proud of him and I was able to  retire from teaching as a result. I help him and run the house too. We are constantly looking for ways to move forward (in his/our business) and life. I will always look to support and buy from a small business whenever I can. I am so very pleased I purchased from you.



    I worked for Nordstrom from 89-02, when it was still small and just starting to expand. My level of customer service that I expect is extremely high due to this experience. You, your customer service, and your product completely exceeded that. Everything was exceptional.



    I know this is a very explanation of my experience with your product, but I am just so incredibly pleased with the outcome. Thank you so very much for developing it and, again, all of your help and knowledge too.

    I ordered peppercorn. I needed to cut the blue-ish tint down. I was happy with dark gray but in our lighting, it never looked right. So on next coat, I started with black and mixed in peppercorn 2/1.  Then I finished with a glaze mix of same with the conditioner. It did darken it up more than I realized, but I love it.

    We are in the business of restoration of structures in historical districts and preservation of furniture and artifacts. Current projects include structures in Ft Worth Texas and Taos New Mexico. Your products have proven to be versatile performers and superior products, and we saved a few hundred dollars for reupholstering with new leather on these two chairs. The end result was better than new leather, inasmuch as the surface condition was renewed while retaining much of the well earned, period appropriate character of the old leather.

    Hi, it's been a year since my first purchase and I bought more product to update my sofas. I have two big dogs and I let them rough house all they want in the sofas. This gives them an interesting distressed look and people often think it's intentional. I don't mind it so much, but my husband isn't so fond of the look, so I decided it was time to renew them. These were originally waxed aniline, oxblood red. I had trouble with the wax and you ladies helped me figure out how to get the wax off with denatured alcohol so the dye wouldn't flake off. Well that helped quite a bit, but the dogs still managed to wear off a lot of the dye. Now that I updated one and can compare the two, I still like the rough and worn look a little better. But the husband is happy. :-)

    I bought a 2018 iM Toyota Corolla. The designers thought the black dashboard would look snazzy with a white lightening bolt. I did not. The upholsterer wanted $430 to take the dash apart and wrap the offending white bolt with black vinyl and put it back together. I said, "No, thanks" and found Rub 'n' Restore. I couldn't be happier with the result. I took it back to the dealership to show them how the iM could look with a little touch up. Next week, I'm going to show the upholsterer, too!

    I ordered Rub 'n Restore to change my cream/white leather chair to black. I can't believe the results. It took approximately 15 coats to change from white to black. About three hours total I'd say (the hair dryer makes a huge difference in dry time). The Rub 'n Restore product was very easy to use, and I only used about a quarter of a large bottle, so it does go a very long way. This chair costs around $2,000 new. Now for under $40 it looks just like new. My friends can't believe it is the same chair! Thank you for the great product and how-to video.
