    I would highly recommend this product. It turned my old leather chair into a brand new looking brown leather chair. I would use again.

    I just finished restoring a lounge suite using RNR, and the result is well worth the $100AU to have the product shipped to Australia.

    Used 409 to clean. Used cellulose sponge to wipe on dye and another for clear. Fast and easy and like new!

    So we bought our first bottle and tested it on a chair and the final outcome was beyond words! It looked like a brand new piece of furniture in a new color. Now my furniture is in great condition even after 11 years. So we decided to attack the couch and love seat and while they took about 5-6 coats each, the outcome was no less amazing. We now have a completely different looking set of furniture and our room has been transformed. I tell you folks, this stuff can't be any easier. It does take some patience, but the results are soooo worth it! Give it a try.

    It started with my husbands 20 year old navy lazy boy that he just wouldnt let go of- but it didnt go with anything. So I said I bet I can dye it or change the color. They all said I couldnt do it- I went on line and found serveral great comments about Rub N Restore. I purchased a bottle with the idea that if it didnt work, I would at least get rid of the old chair. I choose a weekend while he was gone, and WOW! It was exactally what they said. The first coat went on great and the second was even better. By the time I put the coat of conditioner on it was AMAZING. I am such a great fan, I just finished my second leather recl...More

    I am such a great fan, I just finished my second leather recliner.

    I have told all of my friends. I will never look at an ugly leather chair or sofa the same way- now I just say "Rub N Restore"

    Very easy to use, just need a little arm muscle and time! The only thing that id comment on is the color before the top coat is very different then after. I was discouraged with the results until I applied the top coat two days later. After that I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

    Hi there, I know you already have plenty of testimonials but I just wanted to join others in letting you know that YOUR PRODUCT IS AMAZING!!!! My sofas weren't all that old. I just have giants for children (my shortest is 6-4) and they are NOT kind to furniture. We love the durability of our living room set but in just a few years, it was so worn cause we have "floppers" not sitters. I didn't do a full color change, just wanted to freshen it up. Sponge, water, glove and 3 hours and my sofa and love seat look sooooo good. This could not have been easier. That is no exaggeration. They look brand new. You have a customer for life.

I can't wait till all my friends come over to see the house. They'll think we got new sofas. My before and after pics don't even do this stuff justice. When the wife gets home from work today, I'm gonna be a hero, thanks to you. Incredible.

    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've really appreciated the level of customer service, and I've recommended this product to everyone I've shown the sectional to. ...More

    I've really appreciated the level of customer service, and I've recommended this product to everyone I've shown the sectional to. Rub 'n Restore is a great product, but more importantly, the company has outstanding customer service. I'm glad there's companies like this doing business successfully in today's climate. Keep up the great work :)

    After exhausting searches for a reasonable re-upholsterer and or lsome one to dye my badly stained leather living room set. I saw a youtube video featuring Rub n restore and my family and I could not be any happier. I was contemplating purchasing new furniture and trashing my current furniture and I am so glad I found this product!

    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 her mom, CC - wow, twice they helped us out on a Sunday with ordering, questions and how-to ad...More

I'll be singing your praises to anyone who'll listen.

    Have a very valuable leather chair that was sun bleached. This product not only allowed me to change the color but restored the leather to like new condition.

    I bought a leather couch from a friend that was moving. The couch was in such good structural shape and very comfortable but had some discoloration (bluish green spots) on the cushions and side arms. I ordered the espresso colored rub and restore and then tested it. Perfect color but needed to get the clear coat to match the luster. I really really recommend you order them both together because you will almost certainly want the clear coat. Now the couch looks like something I will be proud to have in my living room!

    I just wanted to send you a couple of pictures of the before & after on a couch I recently refurbished using your products. I purchased a small white leather couch for my office from Craigslist, it was FILTHY to say the least (listed for $50, but when the gentleman selling it saw how hard I would have to work to get it clean, the price went down to $25!) but I bought it anyway because it had good bones and I knew I could do something with it.   I won't repeat the snickering comments from my co-workers when I brought the couch into my workplace, but let's just say that it looked even WORSE in our flourescent lighting, and my office is a plac...More

    I won't repeat the snickering comments from my co-workers when I brought the couch into my workplace, but let's just say that it looked even WORSE in our flourescent lighting, and my office is a place of no-holds-barred teasing when warranted...and they let loose on me (and my poor little couch) with a vengence!
     
    I had some idea that I could stain it if it wouldn't come clean (which, of course it wouldn't, even after serious scrubbing) but wasn't sure what to use. A search on the internet brought me to your youtube video, and thence to your website where with hope in my heart 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".
     
    A picture is worth a thousand words, you can see the results with & without the top coat. It is FABULOUS! 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!
