Beige Vinyl & Leather Finish

(40 customer reviews)


Our Beige is a pale sand color. Customers tells us it’s a close match to IKEA’s Mjuk Ivory colored-leather.


Rub this pigment-rich finish on aniline dyed, full-grain leather and vinyl upholstery to:

  • restore appearance;
  • seal, condition, and protect.

It applies easily with a sponge and will not alter the feel. It won’t peel or rub off onto clothing.

Each bottle comes with gloves and stir stick.

Before You Buy

Pale shades get poorest coverage. If you are using Beige to change from a dark or red color, you will likely need 2-3 times the quantity of color plus Clear Prep+Finish™. Learn more about color changing.

Rub ‘n Restore® products are not recommended for fabric, suede, nubuck or faux (bonded) leather. Learn more about material types or peeling bonded leather.

    What a great product it took my 25 years old sofa and made it look like brand new again

    Outstanding product. Easy & straight forward application. Robust. Project was a full-size beige soft Italian leather couch that our furry friends have loved for 17 years. Looks like new!

    Wow!! I have a completely new sectional!! My super comfortable LazyBoy sectional was looking pretty dingy and old, and we are about to move to a brand new house. We were thinking of relegating it to the basement, but rubnrestore has given it a completely new lease on life!! What a great product! Thank you!!

    Amazing & Easy! These are 20+ years old & they look FANTASTIC!

    I only used 1/2 of this bottle on 2 whole Sofas! I’m guessing if I was really changing the color I might’ve used all of it!

    I have use lots of leather conditioner is over the years and none of them have been this good!

    My leather couch is over 20 years old, has been used by hundreds of kids/teens over the years, and 3 dogs (who all love the window perch). The room is not used that frequently since the kids are grown, and looking at the couch in this condition made me sad. The leather was not damaged beyond the wear, the bones were all still very good, and it fits the location perfectly. The color was not terrible, but a little dated and dingy.

    I won't lie, purchasing Rub n Restore was a salvage mission. I was prepared to replace the couch if it did not turn out satisfactory. After all, 20 years is a good return on money for a couch that has been bounced on, spilled on, vomited on, cried on, slept on, played on, sweated on, and just over all well loved.

    But, after 2 days of work, and lots of elbow grease, I do not have to replace our old friend. It is brighter, and the whole room seems happier.

    The original color of the couch matched your beige color exactly, but to add a lift, I used 3 parts beige to 1 part ivory color. The difference is stunning.

    I tried to take the below pictures in the exact same light, and even though the "before" pics look a little dark and makes you wonder if it is a lighting trick, it is not. The difference is that significant. You would never know the worn areas were ever there, and the leather on the whole couch feels like butter, even over the worn area where I used extra product.

    I followed your prep instructions to the T, used the cleaning product you sell, alcohol to de-glaze, very light sanding over the worn areas to make them smooth, and then the Prep and Finish. After that dried, I did some color testing where I came up with the 3:1 ratio I used. I applied multiple thin layers of color. Then topped it all off with 2 laters of Prep and Finish. I did a few touchups after the first layer of Prep and Finish, then the final one.

    The worst part of the process was between the cushions, since they are attached. All I can say, if anyone looks between the cushions, they will see a consistent color, but maybe not as even as the rest of the couch!! This would probably be easier with 2 people. Or 3 arms. The video helped, but still, profanity was evoked. And there is paint all over my hair dryer.

    The before pictures are after a very thorough cleaning of the entire couch, believe it or not.

    Some tips for others:

    Follow the directions provided. Watch the videos. Don't take shortcuts.

    Move the furniture before you start so you can easily get around all sides and reach all areas without having to move the furniture again.

    If the Prep and Finish is foamy as you put it on, your sponge is probably too wet, rinse it in the sink and squeeze it really dry. You will have to do this more frequently than you think.

    Clean and re-wet your sponge often when applying color. It makes it go on smoother and more even. It is easy to forget to do it as you are engrossed in the process, then get frustrated that it is not going on as expected. I cleaned my sponge in a sink every 2 "sections". Also, the sponge needed to be a little more wet for the color then for the Prep and Finish.

    You may need multiple sponges for a large project that uses many coats. Replace the sponge on the first sign it is degrading (small pieces falling off the sponge). It will only get worse from there. Finding a piece of sponge stuck in your finish stinks!

    The shine from Prep and Finish when used as a Finish may show some inconsistencies in the color you did not see before, so be prepared to do color touch-ups and re-coat with the finish.

    Shine is awesome!!!! (OK, that is opinion, not a tip)

    When you think you have covered everything with color, look again, you probably haven't. Peek in the cracks and around the piping, you really have to be diligent around the piping, especially in the corners. Same with the squishier cushions that have a lot of wrinkles. Stretch the wrinkles out to get good coverage. Just keep looking. Also, look in different lighting. What is perfect in the late night hours under indoor lighting shows imperfections in the light of day (I think there is a country song about this).

    Only one person should apply the color. Each person may have a different technique, and it will show in the final finish. This also prevents marital fighting. Or only allow your husband to do the back that is facing the wall.

    I find applying the color to the attached back cushions easier if I am standing behind the sofa. Start at the bottom, then work up the cushion back. It decreases back strain for a large project with attached cushions that requires many layers of prep, color, and finish. You just have to make sure to check the evenness of the color application when you do this.

    Don't think you will complete a large project in an afternoon. And you don't have to. The product will wait, so will the furniture.

    Don't be afraid. You can fix any application imperfections you don't like. Also, leather is not perfect, so your final finish will not be either. Some of the beauty in leather are the imperfections.

    I didn't have good results with beige over wine. it seems to rub off.

    It worked well with the pigmented leather that was beige.

    The before picture was after I spent $300 on an interior car detail. Not clean.  Your product was just what was needed to freshen my seats up!  I made a mistake and bought the car at night. I wasn’t able to get a good look at the interior. I swear an old mechanic drove it. The grease was everywhere. It’s been quite a deep-spring-cleaning project. Did the whole interior.

    I wanted to reach out to you and thank you for giving my couch another life. In just 2 hours, my sectional was transformed from a dirty, old, warn out, ready to be thrown out , into the condition it was in when we first bought it 10 years ago. Three energetic kids later, and our beige couch was looking very sad and disgusting. We recently moved into a new house. It was looking so old in the middle of a freshly painted living room. But with the move, we could not afford to replace it, at the moment. I figured I had nothing to loose. I was very skeptical about this purchase. I saw your videos and read the reviews, and everything sounded magical. I was having a hard time believing it was that simple. It really was. My couch looks so good, we will keep it for at least another 10 years. My husband was so impressed, he will be using the remaining product for his leather car seats. That means a lot, coming from him. He would never use anything on his beloved car, that he did not think was great.   We have gone through so many leather cleaners, at least to clean out the dirt on the couch. And could not get it any where near the cleanliness the Flite got us within minutes.   Beige dye matched perfectly with the color of the sectional. I did request the free samples. I am so glad I did not skip that step. I was ready to order Ivory and Clean and Clear. But when the samples came, Beige without the coat was what I needed.   The dye is also so forgiving. No streaks, do not need to be super careful how to apply it to the leather. It just blends in perfectly. Thank you so much for transforming our sectional into a brand new one.

    I bought a beige/almond recliner chair that after 3 months of use the color started fading and an ugly bluish stain appeared on the left armrest and headrest. I contacted the furniture store and the only we got out of them was a 10% refund. I was about to donate the chair to Goodwill when my husband told me that he had seen a video in You Tube that seemed very promising to restore our chair. He ordered it and followed the instructions and “walla” the chair looks even better than when I bought it. It was a magical transformation. This product is just absolutely phenomenal. Anyone can transform their letter or vinyl furniture in a matter of hous depending on how many layers you apply to obtain the desired color. My friends don’t believe is the same chair. The results surpassed my expectations!!

    I had great success changing the color of leather ottoman from butter cream to a grey/beige. I mixed ash and beige and the ottoman looks wonderful.

    July 17, 2018
    Excellent product. Quite literally amazing. Does a fantastic job of renewing our 30+ year old Italian leather sectional. Applies beautifully, evenly and is resistant. Our living room has been completely refreshed at a lot less than $10,000 for a comparable new sofa. Money left over for a new area rug, four designer cushions and money in the bank! We are just delighted .... dancing a jig!

    Oh and yes, besides being a tremendous product the owners have a wonderful business ethic, they strive for customer satisfaction, are generous with their time and advice. We did not buy anything that we did not need! Top notch. Thank you so very much!

    I have been online reading about how to restore my leather sectional for almost a year. I have watched your videos over and over. I thought a corner of my expensive leather couch may be bonded leather...I worked especially hard on that corner piece, layering and applying with a sponge, clear coat in between. I Forgot to take a before photo.My beige leather couch looks like it did when I purchased about 7 years ago. I have a dog that will not stay off the couch at a 140 lbs. I had many scratches and areas that we very distressed. Your product does all that it promised. I have already told my neighbor and my sister. I am a Realtor and I will spread the word!!! AMAZING stuff. Thank you so much!!!!!

    This is literally a miracle product. I should note that I have a real buckskin leather couch so that may have helped with how good the color took but I was seriously amazed. We had permanent marker that our kids colored all over our couch and this dye completely covered it up and made my couches look brand new! It was so easy to apply and dried so quickly. My buckskin leather just soaked it up! I was very skeptical but didn’t want to purchase a whole new couch so thought I’d give it a shot and was soooo happy with how it turned out. I wish I could show before and after pictures because my couches went from junk to brand new! I don’t think I’ve ever written a review of any product in my life but had to write one about rub n’ restore because I loved it so much and it saved me from purchasing a whole new couch!
    April 10, 2018
    Wow! Not only is this product so easy to use but my leather love seat and chair look brand new. I have told everyone I know about this amazing product. Thank you Rub n Restore!

    I was seriously thinking of buyinf a new leather couch because my old one had so many scratges and a large tear from pets and wear and tear. I decided to give Run and Restore a try before I spent all that money. I was not disapointed! My 12 year old couch looks new agai!

    My wife wanted to replace our tired old beige leather sectional sofa. Our dog had "dug" on the surface of two of the cushions leaving them very scuffed looking. Other than that, the sofa is in good condition. After some internet searching on how to repair or recondition leather furniture, I found this company. I gently sanded the scuffed cushions with #320 sandpaper as per the directions. Then I simply applied the Beige Rub 'n Restore Dye with a damp sponge. We're both amazed at how nice it looks again! For less than $100.00 we have an old sofa that looks as good as new!

    Thanks for a great product that really works!

    This product was so easy to apply and covered scrapes, scratches and worn places made by my dog. I sanded the areas lightly, used clear prep and finish, before and after. It took several coats on the worn area, only one coat on the rest as I was not changing the color. I still have enough product to do another sofa. It looks like new leather now....I am very pleased.

    I am impressed by the results, beyond words. It took 2 hours, and my couch looks brand new. I was skeptical that it will turn out to look painted or the colors won't look right. It came out looking like the first day we got it delivered, 10 years ago. A beige couch and a house with 3 energetic kids is just a bad combination to begin with. I was hoping for something that looks OK, and ended up with perfection. It's great that I was able to get samples before picking the dye. I was ready to order Ivory, but then decided to request the samples, just in case. And of course, Beige was the perfect match.
    January 10, 2018
    I think if it was the right color I would be very happy. Not the fault of rub n restore I picked out the color looking at the pictures. Was a lot lighter than the pic showed. Going to send in a sample of the material and see if they can match the color.

    It totally saved me about $15000 on having to replace couches in my rental home. I didn't want to do that, so THANK GOODNESS for this stuff.

    It took me about 6 hours to do the three couches and two ottomans, but, I figure it would have taken more than that to shop for new ones. Amazing!
    November 6, 2017
    I am so impressed with your products. I have a 10 year old cream leather corner sofa that would cost me a fortune to replace. I have 3 boys and it has taken a bashing. I live in Ireland and ordered the beige colour and clear prep and finish online. It was delivered promptly and I got to work on the sofa. I followed your instructional videos.
    I am blown away by how well my sofa looks - it looks brand new. I am delighted and so pleased that I was able to do this myself. I am so delighted that I didn't buy a new sofa.
    I highly recommend these products.

    Congratulations ladies. You have created an awesome product. My husband had passed away a week ago so I had not begun my project .Last night I tried it out and it is wonderful. Lifted my spirits to see how well it works.Thank you. I'll be placing another order this week. I am so pleased.

    My furniture was a complete disaster. It's 16 years old and has been abused by 3 dogs 2 cats and 8 grandchildren, not to mention the normal wear of two adults. I thought to myself, this a last ditch effort to salvage this furniture. Let me say I am 65 years old and not the handiest at furniture restoration. Your product is astounding! It was easy to apply, dried quickly, the results, WOW . No one believes its the same furniture. I impressed myself with the results, never thought I could do it. BUT I DID. THANK YOU

    at all. Easy application. Would recommend

    I'm absolutely impressed with your product! My 18 year old son was given this furniture for his college apartment. I didn't think there was any hope for it, but I started searching YouTube in search of a miracle cleaning solution, when I came across your product.

    I have bought several colors of Rub n Restore. Its easy to apply and looks fantastic restoring my furniture to a show room finish! I do wish the colors on the website showed the true color of the product; the beige I received has a slightly yellow tint but the loveseat does look wonderful and so does my head board which is white stained pig leather (sorry pig).

    I added some dark brown paint tint like you suggested, and it was almost a perfect match. I only needed a little as I was fixing a blown seam. thanks for the help.

    I tried to get the tint from lowe's, but they wouldn't help me. I only needed an ounce. I went to Sherwin Williams and they were happy to help.

    I've never worked with leather before, so I was totally new to this, but am so thrilled with the results! I got a large 3 piece leather sectional for free. It was completely faded and worn with an area of damage from the owner's dog's nails. I figured it was worth a try since I got it for free anyway. After scrubbing it for hours with 409 and getting thick layers of dirt off, I was able to do the fun part of using Rub and Restore. Now the sectional is beautiful! My family just can't believe how much better it looks! Exceptional product!!!

    I found this product searching Youtube, It seemed too good to be true so I thought I would try it before I pitched my couch and love seat.
    With 2 large dogs buying new furniture for them to destroy made no sense.
    My wife was amazed and immediately posted pictures on Facebook where friends inquired how I restored our couches.
    Great product, highly recommended for anyone with pets that may have damaged the coloring and finish.
    Thank you Rub N' Restore you saved me a lot of $$$$$

    I have never before found a product I would write a letter about. I purchased Rub n’ Restore a couple of months ago and was quite skeptical. I had it sitting around while I equivocated if it was too good to be true and my sofa was just going to be ruined. Yesterday, I decided, it was time and I mercilessly cleaned the sofa. Today, was time to bite the bullet and start the re-dyeing process. I can not be more pleased!! My sofa went from ready to toss to looking brand new, and it was easy! I can’t say enough good things about Rub n’ Restore and thank you for such a terrific product!!

    History of this sofa…my parents gave us the sofa because when they got it there was a scratch and after the store repaired it, it still was flawed, so they had it reupholstered with pleather (I still call it naugahyde.) The color did not match at all and my Mom covered the back with 2 throws. She couldn’t stand it and bought another Natuzzi leather sectional and gave us this one. Well, we have 5 herding dogs and believe our dogs live with us and are allowed on the sofas, but time and use take their toll. THANK YOU RUB N’ RESTORE!

    I admit it...I was skeptical that this product would actually work. BUT, I made a dramatic change from hunter green to beige. It took 12 coats, but it worked beautifully! I applied the product sparingly so as not to experience the cracks that I read would occur if I put it on too heavily. Everyone who has seen the results is in awe! I was quoted $4,500 to recover the vinyl in our boat and I changed it for just one 16 oz bottle of Rub and Restore & the Prep & Finish product! It was easy and the dry time was quick in between each coat. I would recommend this to absolutely everyone! It was easy and it definitely works!
    February 8, 2014
    Worked great in covering a few mistery spots. I put on several coats to make sure it was covered and to deepen the color. Pretty amazing !
    February 3, 2014
    Six years ago, I purchased a vinyl beige sofa and a lounge chair. I don’t know what happened, but the surfaces of the vinyl began turning green a couple of years ago, even though I had only used mild cleansers to clean the furniture. Visitors to my residence began remarking on the unusual/awful color of my sofa and chair. I tried many methods and couldn’t recapture the original color of this furniture. But the actual physical quality of the furniture was great.

    The color had deteriorated so badly that I needed to either replace the furniture, at a cost of about $800 or find another solution. So, I searched the internet for a solution and stumbled upon Rub n Restore’s site. I viewed a ‘youtube’ video of your dye being applied to a sofa and thought that, if this is true, it could save me a lot of money.

    While being credulous, I ordered your beige dye and applied two coats to both my sofa and chair. Later, I applied one coat of your clear prep. The total time that it took me to restore my furniture, with your products was about 4 hours and the process was easy. I must say that your product was all that you advertised that it would be. My sofa and chair now look like new, when purchased. I must say that all your advertisements/promises for your dye and clear prep products were true. I am very happy and thank you.
