Rub ‘n Restore® leather finishes are water-based acrylics and will gradually wear the same way the original leather and vinyl did. Simply reapply. You do not need to strip out the color and go through the whole process again. Just ensure the area is free of oil and dirt, dab on more color and/or clear as needed, and allow to dry. This video demonstrates.

Touch-up is more routine with color changes, especially those frequently exposed to dog claws, liquids, and chemicals (like restaurant seating or boat upholstery).
The more complicated the initial restoration (multiple colors, for example), the more complicated your touch-up may be.
