    I’ve used this product on my boat before, old vinyl cushions and my vinyl ceiling in my salon. Incredible results.

    So I thought I’d give it a try on my 1999 Caribe dinghy with hypalon neoprene tubes which were faded and worn. Many people use “dinghy paint” on the hypalon tubes, but it cracks and looks “fake”. I used two colors of gray and applied two coats of this product. Bam! Dinghy tubes look new. The product doesn’t wipe off, it’s been in salt water, rain and FL sun. The photos show the product being applied (note all the little cracks it fills in) and then hanging off my trawler boat all finished.

    We were given an old leather sectional. It was for the basement so we weren’t *too* worried about how it looked. I was going to get some cordovan shoe polish and hope for the best. THEN, I found Rub ‘n Restore. Unbelievable results!



    I washed with warm water and Dawn dish soap (bucket w rag and wrung out the rag). Then rubbing alcohol on all surfaces. Then three coats of SLATE. In the after photo, you can see the seats are glossy. I had used one coat of sealer on the cushions. I revised my strategy and mixed color/sealer 50/50 and did another two coats to make it more of a matte finish. Worked perfectly.



    Thanks again! I’ve told ALL my friends about this product!

    I wanted to change the color of my sectional in my family room to darker color so I chose the slate. I love the outcome my sectional looks like a completely new one. The process was not hard and it took about 12 hours of work. Thanks Tub and Restore!

    I purchased a Forest Green recliner and needed to change the color to match our decor.   I watched many videos and checked many different brands of “dye” and their websites to figure out what I should do.  Most gave no instructions on what to buy or how to use it, or they were very confusing.   Your products, your information and instructional videos are “hands down” far superior to everything I researched.   I am very happy with the results, and look forward to another project in the future!

    I've have officially managed to salvage my 20 year old leather couch set, and it’s a miracle. I can’t say that it was a walk in the park, but I can say the the results are fantastic and will extend the life of these pieces, which were previously on their death bed. While it doesn’t change the slightly outdated, puffy furniture look, I am ultimately very pleased with the results. The furniture looks nearly as good as new and is an exciting new color! "Slate" I followed the instructions and truly appreciated the video tutorials. As with any project, it's all in the prep work! Cleaning, patching, and applying the soft filler compound had to be done meticulously. Painting was the "fun" part. We felt as if we were bathing an elephant. I've done a full blog post which contains additional images and feedback. I highly recommend these products.

    This product was recommended by a friend. I chose slate for my leather sofa which was originally saddlebag brown. Sofa had some oil stains which I was looking to cover. Coverage was amazing after two coats, sofa like new. I took pep recommendation using isopropyl alcohol prior. Dried very quick. There is done odor to product until it is dry so ventilate. You won’t be disappointed!!!! Thank you!

    Ok- after reading all of the reviews I decided to jump in and take on my own project (in lieu of spending $10k+ over buying new). Here's my thoughts after completing 1 couch:



    Absolutely amazing result. Almost unbelievable. Very painstaking and time consuming (6 hrs on the couch) but well worth the result. Took 4 + coats as I was making a major color change. I suggest starting in an area that won't be seen (if possible). Best applicator I found were wax applicators from the auto parts store (none are included with the product). Definitely want to dampen the applicator before applying and to eliminate any streaks in the final coat - wet the sponge a bit more. This is the trickiest step. Again- results are amazing. Hair dryer is a critical tool for quick drying between cushions and subsequent coats. I did not use wax paper after application and had no issues. Can't say enough good things about the product and the owners. Great customer service. The only 2 items I would mention: the color samples they sent me were a bit darker than my finished product but that was fine with me. Also, I can't speak to the longevity of the finish as I just completed my project a week ago. Good luck to all! You wont be disappointed.

    I LOVE LOVE this team and product! I bought a hot tub since we have to stay home during these times. The only one that was available was this bright green one. Unless you wanted to spend 3-4 times more. I was going t to spray paint it but then came across RubNRestore. I emailed them with my project and questions and they told me what to get and HOW to do everything. I had to get Clear Prep+Finish™ Conditioning Sealer and the pigment color Slate. I was a little worried because sometimes they make things look too easy. Well with the help from Lesandre I was able to make a cheap hot tub look super nice.. My husband was blown away and my kids were so happy. I am super impressed. The product is very easy to use and very forgiving. It also goes a long way.

    I was able to extend the life of our 18 year old sofa, loveseat and ottoman. This set has been used by my family with 4 kids for 18 years. I prepared each piece by vacuuming and then wiping it down with rubbing alcohol on a damp t shirt. I sprayed my sponge with a spray bottle of water and then added a couple of coats of the slate color. I sprayed my sponge with water every so often. I recommend having good ventilation. It takes patience and I worked in short spurts of no more than 45 minutes or so. I topped it with a sponge sprayed with water, 2 squirts color and 1 squirt sealer. When I tried the sealer alone it was too shiny for me. I tried to remember to stir the color now and then. My husband made a tool to cover the upholstery nailheads to facilitate painting around them. This was a game changer!



    These ladies offer great customer service. I emailed and called with questions and they were patient and quick to respond. Thank you!

    This is an amazing product!

    I bought it to paint a 28 year old couch, which is currently in our basement family room. It was a great quality couch, but old nevertheless not to mention the burgundy color, no longer matched the new decor. The product arrived as expected. I read in the instructions that to change a color from the deep burgundy to gray it would most likely take 3-5 coats and was fully prepared for that. I have only applied one coat as of right now. The product goes on easily and the coverage is great. The couch is completely covered and already looks brand new. I will definitely add 2 more coats tomorrow. I am extremely pleased your product and highly recommend it.

    We had two green leather storage benches that don't go with our new decor, but I just couldn't bear to let go of them.



    Purchased the Slate leather color to bring these benches into our new look.



    Love the results! I also used their cleaner before coloring, and finished off with clear finish. After reading directions and reviews, I used a mixture of 2 parts color to one part of the clear finish and achieved a satin finish (just using the clear coat produces a high gloss finish that I did not want).



    My pieces were in good condition (about 6 years old) and did not need repair products.



    Very happy with the outcome.



    Fyi, I emailed a couple of questions along the way and received a great response in hours, not days. Great customer service!



    Easy to apply, but beware this is a very thin product. I managed to spill about 20% of my 16 ounce bottle but still had plenty to finish both benches.



    Highly recommend this product.
