    I am absolutely AMAZED!
    Leather is meant to last a lifetime.
    Our sofas have withstood 2 kids, all their friends and 4 extra large dogs. Besides fading the only damage was on the seat cushions (torn by a digger dog!) but the sofas were a real eye sore. Rub n Restore, some upholstery fabric and we have a complete transformation! It's like brand new furniture! I LOVE rub and restore!!! My husband and teens were skeptical... they are amazed! The leather is still so soft, even softer than before says my son! Thank you Rub n Restore!

    Magical money saving product
    I did not like the color of our new hot tub cover and definitely did not want to spend the $300 to get a new one so I researched and found this product. It came super quick and the process to apply was easy and fast! It looks so much better now! Would definitely recommend!

    Peppercorn for barstools
    Loved the final look. My repair kit didn’t feel the small holes as well as I wanted it to but overall I am still completely happy with the project. This is my second time ordering rub n restore.
    Reply from lesandre:
    Thanks, Melissa! Repairs can always be re-worked. We're transitioning to a more flexible palette knife and adding a metal toothpick to our catalog, which could aid in perfecting the repairs. Also, a little more texturizing before coloring will blend any disparity in shine. Just clean the material with alcohol before re-working repairs. It's okay if some of the color is stripped.

    These are before and after photos of a faux leather couch that wore on only my husband's side, although we pretty much sat for the couch for the same amount of time. I used the dark grey RnR, 3-4 coats, after a quick clean with alcohol. I then applied a coat of Minwax soft touch and used a hair dryer to melt the wax, dabbing the excess. Initially, after the RnR process was completed, the spots needing the most attention were quite a bit darker. The wax blended well and the color matched.

    I would absolutely use this product again. 
    I am very excited about the results from Rub n Restore.  It was an easy project and gave me exactly the update I needed for my living room. I updated the worn copper/brown to Peppercorn.

    From old to new
    I was weary of not only my skills but also of how it would actually look if I essentially Painted my leather recliners. I have to say I am overjoyed at the results. The process was so easy. It was not like paint at all. It was so easy to apply and dried very quickly. I only did two coats- I probably should have done three but I am happy with how they came out. My chairs have a ton of folds and crevices so that part was a bit tricky and I don't think I fully covered them all but that has nothing to do with the product. Definitely Recommend!!!!!

    Perfect solution for my problem
    We recently moved long distance choosing to save only a few pieces of furniture. This included our leather sofa and ottoman. The brown color went great with our old house with all warm tones, but in the new house all done with cool tones, it really looked out of place. I really didn’t want to buy new just because of the color, so did a lot of research online & found your product. I took advantage of your customer service to get your opinion on the pet damage & discoloration plus advice on how much to buy, even received samples for the color selection.

I took advantage of your customer service to get your opinion on the pet damage & discoloration plus advice on how much to buy, even received samples for the color selection. I also watched multiple videos on the application process, both those offered by RubnRestore, as well as some YouTube ones. One of the YouTube videos stresses not skipping the surface prep (same as on your website) and seems like most of the negative reviews on your product are from people who did not do the necessary prep and research. Yes, it took time to do the cleaning and repair steps, but it paid off with what looks like a new sofa and ottoman that look like they were designed for our new home. The recommended amount provided full coverage with plenty left for any repair. I did the ottoman first about 6 months ago to see how the product worked and held up before moving to the sofa. Not a scratch or sign of fading. I was also happy to be able to choose the gloss level in using the clear seal product on the final coat. Thanks to customer service for all your help and to RubNRestore for such a great product!

    I love this product so much! It was so easy to apply and I could not be happier with the result. I will be on the lookout now for leather furniture that needs a spruce up such as this and will be ordering more product!!! Thank you!

    This product is AMAZING!! I was a little skeptical when I ordered about how well it would actually work, but WOW! It goes on so easy and the product goes a L O N G way. One bottle covered my three seater, two seater and arm chair, love how they turned out and I feel like I have new furniture.

    This is amazing
    I used Peppercorn Dark Grey with the clear prep finish. This is amazing. It is so easy to do but I recommend doing a final cleaning before you start with the rubbing alcohol and lemon juice mix that is spelled out in the instruction packet you receive. This really does remove all of the oils and finish and helps the leather absorb the paint. I also recommend using a shop light. I walked around my chair several times during this project with the shop light and found many spots I missed. I spent about 10 hours total on the chair.

We let the chair dry for 3 days before using it. It has seen 2 weeks of use and there is no cracking or peeling at all. This is a great product. I will be ordering again to touch up our couches.

    Was a bit skeptical, but was ready to donate old Copenhagen leather recliner that had been my father’s favorite for 40 years. Never liked the gold color so it was worth the try. THIS IS SO AMAZING that it took this 65 year old only 90 minutes and 3 coats to get a new beautiful chair. All the tucks, folds, seams, buttons, just a bit of patience and VOILA! Still have plenty left in case it needs a touch up down the road. Thank you so much.

    I am a total believer. Absolutely amazing project. Updated a forest green hot tub to the peppercorn (charcoal) finish and it’s gorgeous. I’ll be buying more of their product to help maintain the life of my cover. Highly recommend!

    I am thrilled with the whole process! I emailed the before pics and received a prompt email back with suggestions and advice. The project was easy to complete with all the information on the website, even for a newbie like me who spontaneously decided that I need my comfy leather chair back in my bedroom during COVID quarantine, but not looking like it did. It came out even better than I imagined!! Thank you so much! Highly recommend!

    I used your products on my couches and loved how they turned out! I only needed to utilize one bottle of the peppercorn and have quite a bit leftover, and the entire second bottle has not been touched. I truly appreciate the quick responses I have gotten from you throughout this process. Have been using the couches regularly with no dye transfer or issues at all. Highly recommend!

    First, I want to thank you for your guidance in the process of choosing the right color, and quantity of products I was going to need for the project.

    The experience with the product was good, it dries fast, so you can recoat the same day. I did 3 coats on the furniture, and a few retouches later, the next day.

    I\'m so happy with the result!! It feels I have a new furniture in home!!
