    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't terrified about dying my leather love seat. I watched the videos, gloved up, and got to it. It really is as easy as the videos imply. I chose Ebony so my coverage was noticeable immediately - by the second go around, the color was lush and I was inspired. After applying the Clear Prep & Finish the luster was evident. The next day, I napped on it - even drooled a bit, and the dye held up! I'm sold on this product and have told everyone - Their initial reaction is always, "You did what?! You dyed your leather love seat?!!" - Yes I did....I can't wait to do it again. This is easily the best product I've come acro...More

    This is my second purchase to touch up the rub n restore project I did last year. We have two used, red, waxed-aniline sofas in fabulous condition, but I wanted black sofas. I purchased black and clear and mixed 3:1 for a slight sheen. First try was a flop -- I didn't get all the wax off, so the dye flaked off on to everything. I was extremely disappointed and so I called to ask for help. We talked it through and the ladies suggested odorless mineral spirits or denatured alcohol. I went with denatured alcohol and water 1:1 to get the Wax off and the adhesion was nearly perfect. The product doesn't soak in to dye or stain the leather -- it onl...More

I went with denatured alcohol and water 1:1 to get the Wax off and the adhesion was nearly perfect. The product doesn't soak in to dye or stain the leather -- it only covers over the leather so high-use spots will wear off. We have two big dogs that play on the sofas, and so after a year, about 1/2 the total coverage has worn away. The result in our case looks like intentionally distressed leather. It's easy to use, dries super fast, and makes much more sense than buying a new sofa. I don't worry about the dogs wearing down the color, and I feel like very small investment and time to refresh the color is by far a better solution that getting new furniture. I give the product 4 stars because it is semi-permanent and wears off over time. So while it's a very good Solution and an excellent value, it's not perfect.

    It was really scarey experience, knowing so little about dying leather, in ordering the dye over the inter-net because there were so many negative opinions regarding a water base dye adhering to leather and/or vinyl. But decided to order your product anyways based on the positive testimonials on your web site and very,very glad that we did. Following the directions that came with the product and on your web site, the product worked out very well and the results were beyond our expectation.

    barely used half of the 8oz bottle of black to recolor my Selig lounge chair from ugly yellow-tan to lustrous black! Matched with walnut stain on the plywood. From trashy to Classy!

    The rubnrestore was very easy to use. It took four coats to change a purple chair to black. The first
    Coat looks very streaky but it seems to prep the leather for the other coats. It is very fast and we only
    Used a half a 8oz bottle. The finshed product looked very professional.

    I sent a sample of my sofa to Rub 'n Restore. They analyzed it for free and recommended a 2:1 ratio of Wine and Black rather than paying the extra fee for a custom color. Started the restoration of our sofa on the weekend. I can't believe how it came out. It looks brand new! Glad I found Rub 'n Restore. Great product.

    I had two old hunter green leather chairs and 1 old brown sofa. I dyed them black and it was amazing! I have brand new furniture for the cost of 1 bottle of dye. Excellent, excellent product!

    Thank you for your excellent product. I had called a leather place to find out how much it would cost to dye a recliner chair from brown to black and I was quoted over $700.!! I was given this chair by my sister who was getting rid of it, so the cost of your product was worth the chance that it didn't work - but it did - beautifully!! Thank you for my new black leather recliner chair. :)

    I recently took my cognac leather couch and loveseat and dyed it black. The coverage was awesome and the process was so easy.

    We are beyond satisfied with Rub 'n Restore products. We changed our brown 12 foot couch to black and it looks fantastic.

    Great product that restored our heavily sun damaged leather cushions to a nice, even black color.
    Easy to use. We put 2 thin (thinned with water) coats on the most damaged areas and had a even color in the end. Use the sealer to add a sheen.

    I recently refurbished a 2007 MX-5 Miata with scuffed and scratched seats. I looked a several products but went with Rub'nRestore because it was Water based and the application video demonstrated the ease of application. I did necessary prep with simple green and alcohol and the process was very easy. I treated the worst panels and seams let dry. I two coated the entire seats, drying between coats. I let the dye cure as directed, and put on the clear coat. Results were Awesome !!
    Several club member will be getting their black back in my garage !!

    Used this on my ancient green leather couch and it now looks like a new black couch! Although it does require quite a bit of time to apply (full size couch with many wrinkles) it is great for those who want an affordable product.

    Covered my Beige colored leather perfectly in one coat. My problem is that I didn't order enough, I'm gonna order 16 more ounces this coming payday. I highly recommend this.

    We used it to transform a chair from bright red to black. Part of the chair is leather and the other part is vinyl, and the product worked equally well for both and the color is consistent. Easy to apply and dries quickly. After doing the chair we went out of town for two days and by the time we got back it was fully cured. We have been sitting on it daily every since, and it has not rubbed off or smudged. I would recommend this product to anyone.
