    Excellent feed back from the marine world.
    Waiting to use the product after I decide which color to use on my marine cushions.

    I purchased your product several months ago and finally finishted the project. The previous home own left these leather framed mirros in our home. They are the ones that are a creamy color and the two in the hallway I used the gray paint and the one in our Master Bedroom is a dark brown.
    Product work awesome, and we are very satisfied with the outcome.

    Great Service
    This was a great investment, $15 covered Lesandre evaluating the color and the condition of the recliner, (including how to fix the suede-y parts on the ottoman), sent free swatches, and even set-up what I needed to order. Response time was maybe 2 days. The evaluation also included a $15 off coupon, so all was free in the end. Lesandre also coached me through removing a horrible product that I was fool enough to buy on Amazon. I opted to use Midnight Blue because the chair was so blotchy after I removed the horrible stuff that there wasn't anything to match too. This was my first ever project like this, and Rub'n Restore made it easy! ...More

    From start to finish they were so helpful. They sent me a step by step guide to help fix the large whole caused by a dog.

    No More Splotchy Couch
    Amazing product. Super easy to mix and apply. RnR provided very helpful info to help me select the right products for my couch to match the color perfectly. I'm very pleased with results. Photos attached showing the transformation.

    Here are some before and after pictures of my ottoman restoration project. The results were more than expected! I followed the instructions which were easy to follow. It took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. Thanks.

    You've heard that saying "a picture says a thousand words"? Well, this is that picture(s)!
    What it doesn't say is about Rub 'n Restore's AMAZING and SUPPORTIVE Pro and Customer Service. They gave me the total confidence to accomplish this project with results that are beyond my expectations!
    Rub 'n Restore - you ROCK!

    Amazing! The scratch actually got worse before we received the custom color match. It was easy to apply, dried in minutes. I am super happy!

    Saved me having to replace vinyl seat cushions on our yacht!
    After our 43' Cruisers Yachts express cruiser was in the boatyard having repairs, some of the crew removed the furniture covers we had on our vinyl seating area. Someone placed black dock lines onto the seat cushions and in the intense Florida sun...the dye from the dock lines bled into the cushions. The stains were a plum-purple and NOTHING would get them out. I used a little softscrub with bleach and a magic eraser and it lifted slightly, but still horrible (see before photo).

Actually with ordering the 8 oz. bottle I am now going to touch up a few other parts of our cushions showing a little wear. This product is an amazing value for the price paid, and I am positively a delighted customer at how this product literally saved us thousands in avoiding the expense of having to replace the seating on our boat. I highly recommend this product, especially for boat and yacht owners!

    WOW!
    I Just ordered more clear prep finish so I can do the sections of the couch that I "thought" already looked fine! HA! The instructions were simple and I was able to customize my own color with the mahogany and black that were recommended by you (1:1 parts + 1:1 of the clear prep + finish). I didn't realize how glossy my sofa already was. THANK YOU for the amazing instructions and for including plastic gloves in the product shipment! Amazing stuff!!! Makes me want to buy an old couch and flip it .

    I used the Rub ‘n Restore products you sent me on my recliner and it worked wonderfully. I cannot believe how good it worked and how easy it was. I’m shocked. I then had to use it on the rest of my living room set loveseat and sofa. Great product.
    I appreciate all your help with all of this. Thank You and God Bless!

    Perfect match
    The color match was spot on, products were easy to work with, all stains disappeared, repair kit worked perfectly, excellent costumer service and help. I have never done a project like this, I must admit I was very concerned. However, the support was excellent and the results could not be better.

    20 Year Old Sofas
    Re-colored my old sun-faded sofas, came out great! The biggest effort was Frog Taping off the parts I didn't want colored. With all the loops, tucks, seams and wood, this took some time. Used rubbing alcohol, as recommended, to clean the leather, focusing on the red wine stains. This was a "rub & wait" exercise, to see how each application worked, then reapply as needed. Typically the stains would disappear just about the time the original color started to fade. The darker color (a blend of the Rust, Cognac and Clear Conditioner) completely hid any imperfections. As always, "surface prep" is key. I do plan to apply one more coat...More

    My truck seats are next! Will be using the Soft Filler there to make repairs first

    Thanks for all the help in color selection and technique, the vids were also VERY helpful!

    It worked great. The custom color was perfect!

    I paid once to have it professionally done and honestly this is way better and so much less expensive.
