Clear Prep+Finish Leather Conditioner


Clear Prep+Finish® is a water-based leather conditioner and clear sealer. Excellent for priming and protecting marine vinyl and synthetics too!


Clear Prep+Finish® the base for all Rub 'n Restore® Colors and serves many functions:

  • Use it as a primer for dry, stiff, or sun-rotted surfaces.
  • Dilute Rub 'n Restore® Colors with Clear Prep+Finish® to make a transparent glaze for multi-toned surfaces, aniline leather, or to create a satin finish.
  • Use it in between layers of dye to seal your work (recommended for color changes from dark to light).
  • A final topcoat of Clear Prep+Finish® improves durability and deepens color by adding shine (this is most noticeable when applied over dark or bold colors). It cannot replicate the appearance of patent leather or high-shine vinyl. Do not use if you desire a matte finish.

Application is easy with a sponge or spray gun (not included).

A little goes a long way: 8 oz. is enough for a standard living room set when used just as a topcoat; buy 16 oz. if you're using it as both a primer and topcoat or glaze additive.

  4. Versatile "must have"... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Dec 2016

    I initialy bought filler, black color, and this sealer to try to salvage leather seats in Spanish antique chairs for a Taos rehab project. If successful, I'd save about $700 for a custom leather reupholstering job. not a bad gamble for roughly $60. after refinishing the wood to clean and age appropreate condition, I worked on the leather, and the finished product is MUCH better than new leather. It retains some aged character, but appears all new. the clear sealer was the finishing key.
    Afterward I used the clear on a very high quality but neglected leather couch, cushions, and pillows, all really old, dry, dirty, and well used. After a quick cleaning of the surface (409), six coats of clear with an hour dry time between coats, and you'd swear these pieces were just delivered from the King Ranch saddlery and leather works. Maybe saved $5,000 replacement of those beauties.
    And then there were the barn boots, ugly but in good condition... like new now with mahogany color and two clear coats.
    Keep a quart of clear handy. I completed all the above ob less that 2 quarts, and saved a bundle.

    This did exactly what we needed it to do and the staff was incredibly helpful! I have already recommended it to several people!

  6. Love it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

    This is the perfect stuff to put on after I have used the dye product. Returns the furniture to it's original glossy look.

  7. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2016

    I used this before the color and after to protect it. My vinyl top on my 90 Coupe was in really bad shape, this is the second time I am using RnR with great results it lasted over two years in the Fl. sun

  8. worked nicely 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

    Used this to seal a peeled off bonded leather repair, and then to top seal the finished repair. It sealed the underneath part well. The top coat turned out glossy, as I hoped.

  9. Excellent Product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2016

    This product adds the finishing touch to the project. The small sections I dyed are now as shiny as the original couch and everything is blended. Loved this product.

    Great top coat.

  11. Love this stuff! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2016

    I have to admit, when my husband told me about this product, I was pretty sceptical. We wanted to change the color of some vinyl in an older motor home that we recently purchased. We tried it out on a piece we were able to remove fairly easily. It was easy to apply and I was amazed at how good it looked! You couldn't tell that it had ever been a different color. Great product!

  12. Beautiful shiny finish 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2016

    I don't know if the finish clear coat or the dye did it but it seems like the leather has even softened because the entire piece was done. It gave the furniture a beautiful shiny product. Your product is excellent & it saved me thousands of dollars to replace the furniture

  13. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2016

    It made a great glaze and a shiny top coat.

  14. Great Leather Prep 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2016

    Had an area on my lounge that had the original dye worn down to the bare leather. This prep acted as a primer before applying the dye. Also used it to put a sheen on after the dye. Perfect !

  15. Thanks! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2016

    So glad I found your site! I ordered the clear prep and finish after a helpful conversation with you a couple weeks ago. I put a couple of coats on my leather couch and the sheen came back!!! My couch is ten years old but it's still in great shape. Your product made it look new again! So happy! Thanks again!!!

  16. Really brought out the color 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2016

    Used the Clear Prep & Finish on a Black and Red leather auto interior which had been recently dyed. (The Red & Black Dyes were also from Rub'n Restore.) The Finish deepened both colors and added a nice shine to the leather. Very satisfied with the dye products and highly recommend. Videos are a huge help.
