I purchased this color and slate and mixed them to create the color I wanted. I also purchased the flite cleaning solution and clear prep and finish. I followed every instruction, starting with cleansing my leather chairs with the flite ( two times just to be thorough) and then 15 coats of dye applied with a sponge, and of coarse making sure the dye was completely dry b4 applying another (also using a blow dryer) .

I was going for a dramatic change (red to grey) I let the dye cure for 2 days and then applied 2 coats of prep and finish. (I first tried to go for a satin finish by mixing dye and the prep/ finish but it didn't work as it was supposed to, it came out very streaky, so I had to apply another 2 coats of dye to each chair) after following Rub n Restores direction to the T, the dye continually rubs off my chairs and I continually have to reapply almost weakly. Very frustrating and disappointed. My chairs were very expensive ($1000 each) and instead of selling them because they didn't match with the redecorated room I was convinced this was the perfect solution. I can't just get rid of them nor can I strip off the now 20 or more coats of dye, I'm stuck retouching these chairs weekly : (

I have 9 kids. (8 boys and 1 girl) We are really hard on all our leather furniture. I recolored all my furniture, even changing the color with camel. I really didn't think it would work. It looks amazing! and with the clear prep and finish, just like new! All my friends asked when I got the new furniture.
Touch ups are so easy as well. It takes only minutes to retouch. I will be a life long user of this!!!!

It took quite awhile for me to receive the custom mixed bottle. However I am so glad I had it done, wanted to say that it matched perfectly, unless a person knows what they are looking for , you can't tell anything, wish I had taken a before and after picture. Thank you very much for the great match that was done. I will pass the word to anyone I know that needs this product.
Again, Thanks.

I went from light gray to cherrywood on 2 theater chairs with ottomans. The coverage was wonderful. The product was so easy to apply. I watched many you tube videos before using the product. It helped in making the prep and application seamless!! I have a leather couch that could use some tlc and have plenty of stain left over. Can't wait to do it again.

I was very impressed with how the clear prep alone hid the cracks and deepened the original color on my aniline leather, even though I went for a complete color change. I am waiting the 48hrs to let the stain cure before using it as a finish coat.

We are refurbishing a large hotel/convention center, and we have several upper-end leather sofas and loveseats that are in good shape except for the surface of the leather. We just experimented using walnut on a loveseat that had worn leather and a few stains. One of our employees followed the simple instructions on the pamphlet you provided, and the transformation is nothing short of amazing. Only one coat was required to completely change the surface from worn, faded green to a beautiful walnut color with no flaws showing.

By the way, the bid we received for a professional to restain the loveseat was $500.00. We used perhaps $50.00 in Flite cleaner and Walnut Rub n Restore to complete our project. A ten fold savings.

I bought the slate dye to dye a brown leather chair my husband refused to part with . We got new furniture and the brown completely did not match . I found the Rub n Restore product . It really is easy , it took several coats to cover . The chair turned out amazing . The dye was easy to apply and easy to cleanup . Highly recommend the product to anyone .

I purchased Mocha RubnRestore to redo 2 couches that I recently received. I haven't gotten around to the couches yet, but I stumbled upon an ivory leather recliner with a few stains, scuffs, and some discoloration. I decided to try out the Mocha that I already had. Amazing! It was very easy to use and the recliner looks great! I only used 3 coats. Thanks!

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. The top coat deepens the color and adds shine. 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 babysitted my uncles dog and she ran up and down my leather furniture, this fixed all the scratches and damage to my couch. Quick dry time and ease of use. It doesn't even look like my couch was ever damaged. Very happy!

You ladies are awesome! My sofa, love seat chair, ottoman look like brand new. You saved me like $44,000 restoring the furniture in the beach house not adding the hassle of looking, waiting, and taking new photos for rental site. Wish I would of took more before photos but sending what I have. You sure can have anyone call me if you need a reference. Even if the color only last a season I still have dye half the dye left so I can redo. It looks so great. When I get home I’m going to order some for my red sofa. Again many thanks for getting it all out so soon, now I have the rest of the month to play!!!”

Once I was done with the Rub 'n Restore, my furniture looked great. Once I sealed them with two coats of Clear Prep+Finish, they looked new. Great product, thanks.
