    The product will come off with water because it is water based, just be aware of that. if you buy this one, you most likely will need a clear coat to prevent it from coming off as much. The customer service of this company is impressive, I was outraged because the paint ruined a shirt of mine when the paint came off from the couch, I was not expecting this after leaving the couch drying for about a week.

    after communicating with customer service about the incident, they assisted me without hesitation and help me deal with the issue.

    Color will transfer to a wet rag if the color has not yet cured. See here about cure time. Poor adhesion to the material could indicate a couple things: 1) faux or bonded leather, which resist all finishes, including their own, or 2) oil-based or silicone-based conditioning residue or a waxed finish that require more aggressive deglazing. We responded to your email with some questions to help us troubleshoot and get a better result. See here about our guarantee.

    My husband bought me a very expensive soft leather coat 25 years ago one of my children decided it needed a spongebob sticker on it . When I peeled the sticker off it took some of the finish with it leaving a bluish area. Because it was a gift I kept it all this time hanging in my closet. The discoloration bothered me so much I never wore it. I tried many things to fix it but alas finally its perfectly fixed. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.

    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!

    I would rate it 0 stars if I could. Bought 2 of their biggest bottles to do 2 pieces of furniture. It looks great if you never use the furniture. Once you start sitting on your furniture, it rubs off. $150 down the toilet. Customer service offered me 15% off my next purchase, how generous of them...Why would I buy more of this crap? It literally says on the bottle that it will never peel or rub off! False advertisement at it's finest. This product is a rabid dog, take it out back and kill it.

    Our money-back guarantee states we will refund your money if you follow our recommendations, instructions, and troubleshoot any issues. Our founder and CEO responded to your inquiry within 30 minutes, at which time you admitted that cleaning instructions were NOT adequately followed (that part about alcohol, tape testing, and testing the color). This product page states, "Before You Buy! Read this about dramatic color changes." Had we an opportunity to consult the project before it began, we would have explained why your pieces were not suitable for a change from ivory to black. Then we could have offered no-maintenance or low-maintenance alternatives and avoided the poor experience. Rub 'n Restore is an artisan-quality product that requires users to exercise due diligence in planning and execution.

    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.

    Customer Service is outstanding. They communicated with me after hours and tried to help. Unfortunately, the product was useless to me. I had previously ordered a couple of swatches to be sure I ordered the closest color for my project which was a Burgundy color. I ended up choosing a color they called "Wine". When applying the dye, it was more of a bright red and wasn't even close to the color of the "Wine" swatch I had ordered. Customer Service did send me a small bottle of Black which I tried adding a few drops at a time to darken the Red but to no avail. I ended up not using this product and ended up buying a vinyl dye spray at Autozone which worked great.

    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!

    I had rhe material on my couch what ever it is discolor. The manufacturer would not honor the warranty so I was on my own. A little research brought me to the site and I thought it would be worth a try. I ordered a small bottle because of the size of the area I needed to do. I always clean my furniture so I was ready when my order got here. I stirred the liquid well put on a nitrile glove and got to work. Within 10 minutes I had a perfectly restored headrest you can't tell where the damage was. I still have most of the bottle left for any other issues that come up. Easy to use covers well and drys fast. Anyone can use it too.

    After using a product on my black plastic trim on my two vehicles, it left white spots that would not come off. I called that company who told me to use rubbing compound or very high grit sandpaper, nothing worked. I was on the internet researching solutions when I saw a video of a woman from Rub and Restore using a black dye on her vehicle trim and it looked awesome. I called Rub and Restore and they told me exactly what to do and I bought a bottle of their black dye. It worked perfectly! After trying a number of things that all failed, this product worked perfectly. This is the second time I used products from Rub and Restore in the last two months with amazing success and results. The first was my two sofas. The people there are extremely helpful and friendly. They’ll spend as much time with you until you have a full understanding of exactly what you need to do. They are truly a 5 star company and produce an amazing product!!

    My cat destroyed my living room set I wasn’t ready to buy a new one so I was looking at other options when I found Rub &amp; restore, read reviews and decided to give it a try I am so glad I did! This product is awesome! I went from 12 years old brown/red ripped couch to brand new black. It took a lot of coats with every coat it look better and better!!! I used clippers to shave cat scratches than patched it with glue where required and used filler in holes, it looked much better even before I applied the color. I am very happy with result and been telling everyone I know about Rub&amp; Restore. For my big couch and big loveseat I used 16 oz of color and 8oz clear. I am not sure yet if I like it since put a clear coat on because it makes very shiny I might have to put an other coat of black over it. Still very happy

    Holy leather transformation! That was the most fun DIY project I've done in a long time. Was I skeptical? Yup. Was I blown away. OH YEAH! Not only did the black cover VERY well, it was easy to apply, and basically error-proof. We did take the recliner back off to allow for me to get into the crevices as best I could. Applied two or three coats of the leather Prep and Finish. (Full strength, not cut with the color.) Man, it looks so good!
