    I cannot believe how well this worked. The Rub n Restore product saved a sun-damaged, expensive leather chair. I used three coats of espresso and one coat of the clear finish, the amount recommended was perfect and customer service was excellent. Great product!

    Wanted a grey leather sofa, but not the high end price that went with it. Purchased a white leather sofa for a great price and took a leap of faith on dyeing the leather. I researched multiple products and honestly felt that Rub'nRestore has the best product and customer reviews. I chose the color Stone. I admit that I was very nervous taking on this project. I cannot believe how easy this was and I completed this project in one day. It is simply beautiful and I cannot thank Rub'nRestore enough for such an amazing product. I have two other projects that I plan on completing with Rub'nRestore. Such a great company!

    The steering wheel on my new-to-me 2017 Buick/Opel somehow suddenly got a few spots worn into each side. (I don't know, maybe hand-sanitizer? Or that name-brand interior wipe I was stupid enough to try?)  After much on-line searching, and finding the RnR how-to and FAQ's, and  trying the Project Evaluation, I was pleased to quickly receive a personal reply and recommendation. After ordering I recieved the product right away and gave it a go.  I did some prep and product application, and it was WAY better.  I realized I tool it a little to easy on the first try, so I went over it again and it was even better.  The color dried to matte, but immediately blended in with the rest of the sheen of the wheel. Now that I'm a little more brave, I might touch it up a little more. I also appreciate the follow-up email to check on my resuklts, and the answers to the follow-up questions I had.  O know no one is going to retire off my small order, but it's not often you find personalized service like this anymore.

    I purchased a beat up recliner at an estate sale where the lighting was terrible. When I picked it up, I realized it was going to need work that I knew nothing about. After doing research I found Rub N Restore. I purchased sample swatches I thought would match an existing sofa, & filled out their initial report for a small fee (which was applied to my purchase later). I learned everything & then some from Lesandre. I am attaching before & after pictures. I used the color cherrywood & I mixed it with clear prep and finish, 4 to 1 (4 color to 1 clear). After following the instructions I received, The chair came out newer looking then my sofa! I can not say enough good things about these products and the assistance I received. Thank you Lesandre!

    I had two dark brown couches that were in pretty good shape (some dog scratches and small tears) but they were too dark for our home. I found Rub-n-Restore online and ordered swatches so I could see the quality and the actual colors. After selecting a color (sage) and completing the online evaluation, I ordered the product. I received everything I needed to do minor repairs and instructions on how to apply the color (also watched the informative online videos). The evaluation provided by Lesandre was excellent and worth $10! She made recommendations on how to mix the color with the clear finish instead of applying the finish at the end to get a satin finish instead of a shiny finish. She also said going from dark to light was going to take more coats and lots of touch up. I started with coloring all of the stitching and tufting, then applied four coats of the color. The results were amazing! Each time my husband walked through the room he commented on how good it looked and how he couldn't believe it actually worked! Because I ordered the product, my $10 evaluation fee was refunded, and when I returned the swatches, I received a 10% discount on my order. Well worth the time and money to order swatches and to do the online evaluation. Looking forward to finishing up the second couch!

    Thank you so much for this wealth of info! I did end up buying the recommended prescription of products.



    The box arrived yesterday and I quickly got to work. I am literally in awe!!! The results are absolutely spectacular. The boring frat couch is longgg gone and I CANNOT wait to see the look on my friends faces next time they’re over for dinner :). Thanks again for your insight and crystal clear instruction. I’m so excited about my new (old) couch!!

    Thank you so much for providing this service and these products. It looks absolutely beautiful!!



    Before the last coat was applied the surface was looking streaky. Then I went back to your website and read that blotting color with the sponge works better, rather than moving it back and forth. That method worked beautifully.



    I am so happy - The finished outcome is better than I ever expected. Whenever the finish needs a touchup, I think I’ll make it a little darker. It’s so nice to know I have that option.

    I am beyond thrilled with my result- the top is the before and the bottom two are after.  I fully did the seat cushion and spot did other areas on the chair but I think the match was very good (mix of Cherrywood and Tobacco). Thanks for all the great advice and videos!

    My Dad's leather chair and ottoman had great sentimental value but needed some TLC, as it was showing lines and wear mostly on the arms, seat and ottoman.  After much online research and reading of independent consumer reviews I decided to purchase the Rub and Restore products.  The final selling point was the availability of the videos as I'm visual and needed the "how to" DIY advice.( I watched them so many times I probably could be Lesandre's stand in!) With much trepidation I decided that this was the week to jump in and just get it done.  Come what may.



    Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Everything you said was true ... the product is forgiving, does cover as directed and has brought the chair back to life.  I obsessed over the how to's, can I, and the what ifs  ... did I clean it correctly, is it streaky, etc.  But with a little water everything blended in.  Originally I intended to have a satin finish (2 to 1 ratio) but the chair looked like milk chocolate and was a bit dull.  I ended up putting a top coat of the primer + sealer on the following morning and the chair just came to life.  Altogether I think I spent about 5+ hours on the project.



    I'm so pleased with your customer support, quick responses, the products and of course the end result. I know the value of good customer service and truthful advertising.  I find that many firms fall short but I must say that you were right on.  Your customer service is top notch.  Your response time as well as your personal responses were instrumental in my decision to try your product.  Having videos that showed me how to proceed were critical in giving me confidence to try.  Great job, much appreciated.



    Can't thank you all enough.  I'll recommend you wholeheartedly .....

    Your product works better than advertised.  I have a big boat project and took the most worn seat bottom to see how Rub n Restore really works.  I was hoping for 70% better, but the results were amazing.  Waiting for a little warmer weather to attack this project.  Here's a pick of the finished cushion.  I'll send a complete photo journal when completed.  My friend will be reaching out to you as I shared my picture with him and he's going to place an order.

    I am totally ecstatic and blown away with the transformation of my sofa after using the rubnrestore products! The process was very easy to do and tutorials online were very helpful to get the process right. I am a believer and so happy to have saved so much money since I did not have to buy a new couch to replace this one.

    Had this soft leather sofa for 20 years. It was in good shape the leather just me faded over time. After visiting my sister in NC a few years ago she showed me her couches that she restored with the rubnrestore dye. I just finished using the wine burgundy color and my wife I couldn’t be happier. Our friends just paid over $4,000 for 2 new couches and we refinished this for a little over $100.

    Absolutely love this product! From the evaluation and color suggestions to the easy to follow “how to” videos I felt like I had an expert with me throughout the entire project. I have never attempted anything like this before and I’m blown away by how easy the entire process was. With Rub ‘n’ Restore, a bit of polyfil for the cushions and an afternoon, my 15 year old leather furniture looks brand new again! Thank you for such a quality product and outstanding service.

    To put it bluntly, I couldn't be any happier. I had a jacket for years that I only wore occasionally and only because I felt a little obligated because it was  so nice I felt guilty never using it. Even so I'll admit I was a little hesitant to start a DIY project on the thing. But I figured if people were really putting this stuff on couches, it had to be pretty effective. In the end it's all I could have hoped for and more. From the detailed assessment I got when I submitted the project, to the clear, step-by-step instructions, the entire project went easily and flawlessly. The creases and vents on the jacket made for a bit of detail work, but when all was said and done, the jacket looks amazing and the color covered beautifully. My most enthusiastic recommendation on the product and my appreciation to everyone at Rub-N-Restore for the fantastic customer service.

    Prior to ordering Rub n Restore Products I completed the online Custom Project Evaluation and included pictures of the couches I planned to restore. I blame my dogs and kids for staining/ ruining them lol and refused to spend the money on a brand new set. I received a very detailed response back that even included approximately how much product I would need for both couches. I went with SLATE and mixed it with Clear Prep + Finish for a satin finish. I used about 6 coats and have left over for touch ups. I am super pleased with the results.

    I am completely thrilled with the results of restoring my sectional sofa! First, I received an evaluation from Lesandre. She did not upsell me; in fact, I thought I needed the repair kit and she said I didn't. I ordered it anyway, and she was right. I didn't need it! I called Lesandre to ask a few specific questions. She answered the call immediately and couldn't have been more helpful and gracious. Completing the project was as easy as described. I finished coloring my entire sectional in one day. Then I sealed it one more time the following day. I HIGHLY recommend this product and company to anyone who is interested in saving a piece of furniture. I even used it on an old pair of boots with terrific results! Thank you, Lesandre for your professionalism and kind demeanor! Your customer service and products are exceptional!
