Forest Vinyl & Leather Dye
Forest green dye restores and conditions leather or vinyl. Use it on furniture or hot tub covers. It's anti-UV and won’t flake, peel, or crack.
Forest is a hunter green or spruce color. It is darker and more blue than an emerald.
Use it to blend the appearance of scuffs, stains, discoloration, and fading on leather and vinyl while providing UV protection. Suitable for use on vinyl as well as pigmented and bycast leathers, it can be applied with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. For aniline leather, dilute the color with Clear Prep+Finish to make a transparent glaze. Forest permeates leather and vinyl, behaving more like a dye and less like a coating. Once dried, it will not rub off on clothing. Do not get wet until fully cured. Each bottle comes with an extra-long stir stick and gloves. Sponge not included.
We discourage color changes on bonded leather or ultraleather due to the unstable nature of these materials.

Too ugly to keep, too good to throw out.

I bought a low priced vinyl-leather looking couch at Macy's about 20 years ago. The salesman told me honestly that it was a good value and would wear pretty well if I did not abuse it. It was always very comfortable but recently was showing its age. I took a chance on rubnrestore because I felt I had nothing to lose by trying to rejuvenate it. I tried to redo it in the same color, and Forest was a pretty good match to the original green (got a swatch first).
I do have experience with a spray gun as I sometimes repaint cars. I used a DeVilbiss gun with 25 lb pressure at the tank through a 50' line. The dye worked extremely well and even helped to fill in some rough areas where the back pillows were worn. I did this outside of course, but should have protected my driveway better. The dye washes off hands fairly easily, but not asphalt. I let the whole couch dry for 2 days then brought it outside again and used the clear conditioner on top of the dye, also by a spray method. I think it must be stressed here to use THIN multiple coats. The couch looks 100% better, and I have had many nice comments about it. Even if it only extends the usable life of the couch by a few years, rubnrestore is worth the investment.
Easy and professional

A mix of the Forest and Cognac (thanks to the personal help from CC) produced the exact green I was looking for. Not only did this product transform a teal leather into a NEW chair, it took away the scars of years of use. The videos and personal phone help gave me the confidence to do this. I am a retired decorative painter, and went into this project with a definite color and professional results in mind. I received both and will use this product on another leather chair I have at our summer home. Thank you, Rub 'n Restore--this is an amazing product .
It's like we have brand new couch

Have had our forest green leather couch for 15 years, but after 2 kids wear and tear of every day life it has seen better days. I called around to inquire cost of redying my couch and cost was more than what we had paid brand new 15 yrs ago. Found RubnRestore in website read testimonials and order 16oz Forest Green dye and 16oz. Clear Prep+Finish. I now have our couch looking and feeling brand new. Very happy with outcome.
