    Excellent. Color match is perfect. I had applied the finish coat on without color added and it made a milky film on the dark leather. Lasandra's advice to reapply using 50 50 fixed it and blended the mottling too. The pieces look like new. Thank you for all your advice, videos and great products.

    Fantastic product and company/ people!
    Amazing product and customer service. I picked up this Ethan Allen couch for free on FB marketplace as it had good bones. I purchased the starter color analysis and sent in pictures/swatch. I received a detailed email and helpful phone call conversation including the products they recommended for my job: filler kit, color and sealer, along with links to pertinent instruction videos. Received products promptly. The process took about 6 hours total including extra drying time watching Netflix in between three layers of fillers in the arms and seat cushions to repair leather. I’d say hands-on time was less than 2 hours. I am very impressed...More

Thank you Lesandra and Rub N Restore!

    I can’t say enough about this product and company! This was my first DIY project so I was very nervous about applying anything on my good leather chairs. I just needed them a different color after discovering my chairs would not work with my new flooring. I chose to give this a try rather than purchasing new chairs. The company was awesome to walk me through the process and take away all my fears. I chose to do the color analysis but had I known how easy it was to change the color if I didn’t like it, I would have just played with the colors a little more and wouldn’t have ordered such big bottles. It really goes a long way! I did 2 recline...More

    I chose to do the color analysis but had I known how easy it was to change the color if I didn’t like it, I would have just played with the colors a little more and wouldn’t have ordered such big bottles. It really goes a long way! I did 2 recliners with 2-3 coats and only used approximately 4 ounces of product. At least I have plenty for future projects now. :)
    I purchased the custom color Tobacco which was too light on one chair but perfect on the other, so in my case, different leather types take the color differently. I purchased some mahogany to darken it a bit. I used 3 parts Mahogany and 1 part Tobacco for the darker chair and straight Tobacco for the lighter chair. I also purchased the satin sealer because I didn’t want a high gloss finish but I couldn’t see a difference after applying it other than it did tend to highlight any areas that weren’t exactly covered evenly, so I chose not to use it. The chairs are as soft and comfortable as they were before using Rub-N-Restore. All in all, I’m thrilled with the outcome and would highly recommend this product!

    You have an amazing product!! I cannot thank you enough for your guidance and commitment in making our sectional couch come back to life. CC - your color match was spot on!
    The process was seamless. The project was effortless. The commitment in the project itself took only about two hours. We are so pleased.
    We have another couch project - but I am waiting on the color swatch to be delivered by mail from Restoration Hardware. When I receive it - I will be sending it off to you all for another color match.

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help and to show you what amazing results I got with your products! I could not be happier with the results! The customer experience I had with your company was better than any I have had in a long time. You were so professional and competent and if I have ANY future leather restoring needs you can bet I’ll be back!

    Instead of replacing 4 cream coloured leather recliner chairs, with the Rub'n Restore leather dye, I was able to fix the stained areas. For $70 I was able to save $8,000.
    Thank you!

    I can not thank you enough for all your help.   This was easier than I could have imagined.   I did the bench first (in the garage) to get comfortable with the application and then did the chair where it sits in the living room. The bench color was equal parts Cherrywood, Rust, Cognac, Walnut. The color for the chair (equal parts Cherrywood, Mahogany, Wine), where I only did the seat cushion, matched EXACTLY as you can see (I think the apparent color differences in the chair photos are due to the lighting since I only did the seat). Many thanks again.

    Anyone interested in getting rid of UGLY marks on your leather anything? I was!! My short haircut has worn this ugly mark on one of my favorite and most comfortable leather recliners. I called around and professionals wanted $200 and up to repair. I found Rub N Restore on YouTube. Well, $45 later TAKE A LOOK!! The company was great, unbelievably helpful, answered all of my questions, and I bought enough stain for many many more applications, if necessary. IT WAS FUN TOO!! Only took 10 minutes.
