    I was extremely skeptical about this product. I purchased a cheap sectional and it was in rough condition. After the first coat of Espresso, I realized I might have made a mistake.. let me be the one to say.. TRUST THE PROCESS. A ragged old sectional is now beautiful and looks new. Attached are a photo before, a photo before the conditioner, and a photo after the conditioner. I really could not recommend this product more.. AND it got to my home in two days!

    Bought a leather chair with some wear and went on line to find a way to restore it. Found your products at half the price of others, along with confidence-inspiring videos. The results speak for themselves. Had so much fun I ordered a set for my brother in law to restore a badly worn family heirloom. Again, almost magical results. Highly recommended.

    I love your product! It's so easy and fun to see the results. I used a combination of Camel and Cognac on a couch and I decided to try them separately on this chair and ottoman. I ended up going with the Espresso and love the finished product!

    I am very pleased with the product. I have never done anything like this so I watched the videos and read the instructions. I think it turned out great especially since I’m not a professional. Honestly, I think I could do better I just don’t want to take the time. This is for a family room in our basement. This is 3 coats of espresso and 2 or 3 coats of conditioning sealer. It cost around $120 for both couches and I have quite a bit of product left.

    I have to admit, I was skeptical I would find any product to save our tufted leather ottoman. With nothing to lose, and after a bit of research, I thankfully stumbled across Rub N Restore.

    In total I spent about 3 hours restoring our worn out friend, and when I asked my wife to see the results, she didn’t believe it was the same piece of furniture!

    Absolutely amazing product and I am now a true believer.

    I purchased this chair from Crate and Barrel almost 15 years ago. It was originally a caramel brown but got very faded and worn over the years. I tried a leather conditioner but it didn't make much of a difference. So glad I found rub n restore. I love the rich chocolate brown color - I used espresso - 2 coats, with a bit of the clear coat. It took me about 2 hours. Huge transformation.

    Customer service is excellent! Really doubted this would work on the chair because it is not leather or vinyl but I felt it was worth a try. It WORKED! I put several coats on it and believe I will have to continue the maintenance but the chair is worth it because it is soooo comfortable. Thanks RnR!

    Just wanted to say thank you for a great product and a great result!   I've never done anything like this before and was a little hesitant to give it a try.   Your website is easy to use and guided me thru the process of getting the cleaner, color and shine coat that I needed.



    It took me a few minutes to get the right hand motion figured out to get keep the "marbled" color appearance of the leather.   Once I did, the project went smoothly and turned out phenomenal.Thanks again (my girlfriend is ecstatic)!

    What a fantastic product! We started out with 2 buttercup Natuzzi aniline sofas that had oil and other stains with sun damage but were still structurally sound. We first did them with your Cognac with a 50% glaze. We realized we wanted them to be darker brown and without the shine. So I ordered the Espresso and 3 coats later we are amazed how well they turned out. Thank you for a fantastic product, it couldn't have been easier to apply. You girls rock...

    I am absolutely dumbfounded by the 'fool proof' nature of Rub N Restore. After the initial application, I had concerns, given the pillowy nature of the seat backs and the pleated nooks and crannies around the stitching, this product wouldn't display an even tone. However, after the second application, it was easy to see the color blending more evenly. The pictures just don't do justice to how amazing this product is. Rub N Restore is clearly the "sliced bread" of do-it-yourself monochromatic leather dyeing. I have to tell you that I've really appreciated your level of customer service, and I've recommended you to everyone I've shown the sectional to. I think you have a great product, but more importantly, I think you have outstanding customer service. I'm glad there's companies like yours doing business successfully in today's climate. Keep up the great work :)

    I purchased a small white leather couch for my office, it was FILTHY to say the least. I won't repeat the snickering comments from my co-workers, but let's just say that it looked even WORSE in our fluorescent lighting. I purchased the Espresso color and the Clear Prep-Finish. Application was a breeze, goof-proof to say the least! We have two dogs in our office and even without the topcoat they barely made a scratch in the color after 6 coats (and when they did I just touched it up). It is a beautiful couch now and I can't tell you how pleased I am that it has been "Rubbed and Restored". You can see the results with & without the top coat. Everyone in my office is eating their words and asking about your product. They are all just AMAZED at the transformation and I will be singing your praises for all time! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I can't say enough good things about this company, it's products and service - I mean that. After getting a $900 estimate to recover my beloved vintage Lounge chair, I thought I was going to be stuck forever having a bright orange chair that did not match anything in the whole house. Then I stumbled onto Rub 'N' Restore via the internet. The results far exceeded my expectations, and my wife and I could not be happier with how this project turned out! I was also thoroughly impressed and grateful for the incredible service we got from Lesandre and CC - wow, twice they helped us out on a Sunday with ordering, questions and how-to advice. I was also surprised how easy it was to color-change a piece of vinyl furniture! I ended up using my small detail spray gun to do this and it was a breeze! Application, touch-up and cleaning were easy and require little to no experience thus making it a do-it-yourselfer's dream. Now I'm wishing I had more vinyl or leather furniture pieces to restore! Thank you, Rub 'N' Restore. I'll be singing your praises to anyone who'll listen. A very happy customer indeed.”
