    I was looking for a leather stain and was pleasantly surprised to find rub and restore. When the product arrived and it arrived very quickly I followed the instructions but wasn't pleased with how the application work so I did it my own way I actually used a brush and the seat came out so great this was for my car the side panels came out so great and the bottle last at me throughout the whole project I still have some left very satisfied.

    I have refurbished two leather jackets and a pair of boots with Rub n Restore and it has worked brilliantly. I can't recommend this product highly enough. Extremely simple and fast to use with a brilliant finish.

    Last year my wife used it to refresh our couch and arm chairs and it did a fantastic job of that too.

    These vintage patio chairs were pretty weathered and ugly. Now they look fresh and are good for several more years in the sun!

    I bought a $400 ottoman with four stools inside of it, and somehow in the store it looked like it matched, but once delivered, it did not. I was devastated. It was very dark brown, and I wanted grey or black. Your product changed it to black, and I couldn't be more thrilled. It was hard to believe how easy it was to do. I used four coats and still have a ton. The round stool is the original brown color. Thank you so much... now it's perfect.

    Once I'm finished, my couches will look new, and I bought them used on Craigslist! When I first started, seeing how thinly it went on, I was really worried I'd run out!! I still have at least 1/3 of a 16 oz bottle left, haven't used any of the second 16 oz bottle yet. I think it may just be enough with the one 16 oz bottle. I'll have tons left, which is good, I can keep redoing it as needed thru the years. Thanks!

    I HAVEN'T LEFT A REVIEW FOR ANY PRODUCT IN 30 YEARS. THAT'S. BECAUSE I WAS ALMOST ALWAYS DISSATISFIED. I DIDN'T WANT TO WASTE MY TIME WRITING A REVIEW. BUT....IN THIS CASE I DECIDED TO GO AHEAD AND WRITE A REVIEW THAT DESERVES TO BE KNOWN FOR THEIR OUTSTANDING PRODUCT BUT ALSO THE OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE. THE RESULTS OF THE DYE I PURCHASED WERE UNBELIEVABLY OUTSTANDING. I CONSIDER MYSELF "OUTSTANDING" AS WELL FOR PURCHASING THIS OUTSTANDING PRODUCT. YES I KNOW....I USED THE WORD "outstanding" TOO MUCH. CAN'T HELP IT...

    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 u...More

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 this confidently based on other reviews and testimonials but was beyond impressed with the results on my destroyed loveseat! Even with only one coat and my half assed patching job ( I have ZERO patience) it looks 100% better! I would recommend!!

    I redid a turquoise leather couch with the black dye. VERY happy with the results. Couch looks fantastic. It took 3 coats to cover, still lots of product left. Fantastic!

    The service is exceptional. They answered tons of questions even before I made a purchase. After the purchase they worked with me to get the exact result I was looking for. Outstanding folks.

    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.

    I initialy bought filler, black color, and this sealer to try to salvage leather seats in Spanish antique chairs for a Taos rehab project. If successful, I'd save about $700 for a custom leather reupholstering job. not a bad gamble for roughly $60. after refinishing the wood to clean and age appropreate condition, I worked on the leather, and the finished product is MUCH better than new leather.

    Afterward I used the clear on a very high quality but neglected leather couch, cushions, and pillows, all really old, dry, dirty, and well used. After a quick cleaning of the surface (409), six coats of clear with an hour dry time between coats, and you'd swear these pieces were just delivered from the King Ranch saddlery and leather works. Maybe saved $5,000 replacement of those beauties.
    And then there were the barn boots, ugly but in good condition... like new now with mahogany color and two clear coats.
    Keep a quart of clear handy. I completed all the above ob less that 2 quarts, and saved a bundle.
