Mahogany Vinyl & Leather Finish

(80 customer reviews)


Mahogany is a dark brown color. It’s similar to Espresso but is distinctly more red when viewed in bright sunlight. It is a darker, browner version of our Cherrywood.


Use this pigment-rich finish like a dye to:

  • conceal stains and fading;
  • 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

Please read about dramatic color changes before undertaking one.

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

    Amazing product!!!

    This product is amazing! We purchased a new hot tub cover and didn’t like the color when it came . When researching how to change the color, we came across Rub n Restore. We read so many reviews and were still very hesitant. Decided to at least try it.
    I used rubber gloves and a sponge (purchased the one recommended in brochure that came with paint). Applied paint to sponge (comes out of bottle like a water, not to thick). Tried using straight lines across hot tub cover the 1st & 2nd thin layers applied. 3rd and 4th layers applied, I used a circular motion.
    The product was everything it says it is. Love the color now :))

    This is an incredible product that works exactly how they say it does. It made our worn out sofa and love seat look brand new! It was also very easy to use and they give you everything you need to complete your job in a very short amount of time.

    I wanted to let you know what a great job the Rub 'n Restore did on my husband's recliner. It looks like new! I mixed mahogany with just a few drops of cherrywood and it matched perfectly! I buffed with a soft cloth after it was dry and you cannot tell at all where I recolored the faded leather. So glad I found your website!

    Unbelievable the before and after. This is the second time I’ve bought this product but I would definitely recommend the flite spray cleaning bottle as a good cleaner prior to applying this product ... removing dirt and oil will only make the product work that much better!

    Warning: I'm going to sound like an infomercial! But, WOW! Look at the difference!
    After some water damage to one of our leather couch cushions I was ready to get rid of the set. Then I found Rub 'n Restore.. I was super skeptical, but thought it was worth a shot. OH MY GOSH it was so easy and looks great! AND it only took about a half hour (most of that was waiting to be sure it was dry between layers). A huge shout-out to Rub ‘n Restore, Inc. for walking me through this process, helping select the right colors (a mixture of Mahogany and Walnut) and convincing me I could do this! Seriously amazing! I'm so thrilled! Not bad for a Monday morning!

    I purchased Flite, Mahogany Dye and Clear Prep Finish. My sofa sectional and rocking chair had wear spots on the seats and scratches from our dogs.
    Boy, I am sold! I was surprised at how easy your products really are to use. Before I made my purchase, I watched your how-to videos, which gave me confidence the Rub ‘N Restore products were what I needed for my furniture. I was a little worried the Mahogany Dye was going to have to much red in it, but once it dried it was almost a perfect match. I put Clear Prep Finish on and it blended beautifully. My furniture almost looks like new. Thank you for bringing us products and giving us instructions that are easy enough for the non talented, like myself, to use.

    Hello, thank you for sending me the clear prep and finish. The chair ate the color so fast, I can’t imagine how hard it would be if the color was more saturated. I mixed it color rich at 75%/25%.  I applied 3 coats, Plus some touch up spaces. And used approximately 2/3 of the bottle. It turned out perfect. Super dark brown with a small hint of red during the day time. The first coat was horribly streaky because I applied it in strokes. I was curious to se how it absorbed and changed as it dried. Much closer to paint than stain. The second coat was rubbed, than dabbed. It looked fine to me, but my wife wanted it darker. The 3rd coat was only dabbed on. The leather was rougher to the touch but a little sanding softened it. Overall, I’m satisfied! Thank you.

    WOW!!!!! I am completely impressed. This product was so easy to use. The chair looks like a completely different piece of furniture. Before I found Rub-N -Restore, I was going to sell it in a yard sale. Beyond happy with the results!!!!

    I bought all the kits. My mahogany leather sofa had over a ft. long horrible tear. I got all the kits - the patch, glue, compound, scraper, sandpaper and dye. I wish I had taken a before picture but it was absolutely gross and I didn't want to. The kits are fantastic and the dye is remarkable. The mahogany blended in perfectly with my sofa. Try it if you have a leather sofa! You won't be disappointed, and you don't need a lot of arm muscle to do it. I'm in my 60's, disabled and was able to manage with no problem.

    This product was exactly what we needed. The color matched and brought back our leather couch to look brand new. It was so easy to do anyone can do it! Thanks Rub-n-Restore!

    September 25, 2018
    An aniline leather jacket, originally black, red and grey. Dyed by me using Fiebings Pro oil black dye and black resolene top coat (before image). After removing the Fiebings pro oil dye with acetone, the jacket felt back to its original supple feel. The jacket now has five coats of mahogany rub and restore. The jacket has not changed in feel one bit. it is still very soft and pliable. It had a nice almost satin finish. Jacket did very well. Wiped bug splatter off with a damp microfiber towel and no color came off onto the rag at all. It is fair to say I am in love with your product and appreciate all the help and time you gave to a “small” job. I am really glad that your product is not like Fiebings. I like the water based aspect. There so many chemicals and junk in the Fiebings.

    I took before and after pictures and everyone was amazed how great my ottoman turned out. It was so easy. I am considering doing my sectional now. Highly recommend this product.
    September 11, 2018
    We used this product on a stressless recliner. The dyed leather had faded and multiple attempts to remove body oil from the headrest had failed. This was a last resort and I opted for a shade darker than original hoping to make oil stain less noticeable. 4 thin layers of dye completely covered the stain and covered or corrected all fade areas as well. I wish I would've tried this first!

    This product is amazing...does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Covers stains and imperfections.
    Really did restore my leather chairs.

    The dye worked great. No issues.
    January 20, 2018
    This product works just as they say it will, although I will stress to follow their instruction (the sponge, moisture level etc). I got impatient and I did a coat without the sponge and it definitely makes a difference having the sponge. I used one bottle of color and one bottle of the clear prep and top coat on 1 couch and 2 recliners and had a small amount left over of each. My couch is 12 years old and showed it but looks great now. The chairs were a bad buy from Abbyson. The color started peeling on them within months of buying them and this products has saved me from buying 2 new chairs for now! This company takes care of its customers as well. I had a major issue with UPS and the company took care of it. Awesome company, awesome product. Will definitely use again when needed.
    January 18, 2018
    I bought a couch from a well known furniture store about 3 years ago, and was under the impression based on the advertisement and price it was real leather. Fast forward to 6 months ago, it started peeling. I didn't want to buy all new furniture (I only had it for a few years) so I began to search for something that would help me. I came across this product one day and decided to try it (I had already tried the leather tape and some other sealant type product). It was worth a shot, and while it isn't a perfect fix, it is very close! I was able to dye the material under the leather bond to the same color so there is no longer any discoloration on my couch. And this means I can probably keep my sofa for another 3-5 years, which is awesome. I would encourage you to buy the sealant with the dye, because you will need it. It dries very flat, so it doesn't match the finish on the rest of my couch. (flat vs. shiny) but the sealer will make it shiny.
    January 11, 2018
    I used the mahogany dye on my 10 year old couch and it looks new! I was amazed and surprised at the results!
    January 2, 2018
    This was a perfect match for a spot on our vinyl couches that had a worn spot. The vinyl covered leather couches are 5 years old with heavy wear. The plastic had pealed off and there was textured light tan fabric/suede underneath. The stain went on easily and dried quickly. The texture is still like suede and not smooth, but the spot is barely noticeable. It was definitely a quick fix for an eyesore. I could have sanded the spot smooth and might go back and do that, but for having family over at Christmas, this was fast!

    I wanted to share before and after pictures of a recliner that I used your product on. The color I chose was Mahogany. I also used the Clear Prep and Finish which is a necessity, in my opinion. The chair once ready to be a 'give away' looks new again! All I can say is you have a forever customer. I am very pleased with the outcome. Hats off to YOU! I’m ready to buy more product.”

    I ordered the mahogany product and the Flite cleaner. I just wanted to tell you how satisfied I am with both products. I really couldn't believe they worked this well. It really is great to have a product work as advertised.

    Easy to apply....dries quickly and wow what a fabulous end project!!!
    June 5, 2017
    Our hot tub cover was pretty beat up. I used your soft filler and, of course, Flite to clean it thoroughly. That filled all the surface cracks but, even so, it was impossible to hide them completely. I did multiple thin coats of your Mahogany and Clear.
    I'm very pleased. This cover is going to easily last at least another couple of years and that's a heck of a lot better than spending upwards of $500 or $600 to get a new one.
    Thank you again and again for all your help with this and for such a great product. I'm a happy camper!

    My cats had a field day on the corner of my vinyl sofa. I tried several different products and nothing was covering the marks. I started you tubing for suggestions and came across rub n restore. I got a phone number and call the company. I was able to speak person to person with one of the owners who was amazing. I placed my order got it quickly in the mail and applied it just as the company had told me. It worked and covered perfectly! Would definitely recommend this company and products.

    I am very happy with the results of your products. I was not sure at first but with your instructions and willing help it was much easier that I thought. You have been most gracious and patient.... I cannot thank you enough. I have enough to do 2 or 3 more chairs. You run a good business and I give you high marks. Now I have my sister interested and she will send you a sample for a match.

    Great product and easy to use!!! I took an orange-ish (persimmon) set of leather chairs and couch and changed the color to a deep chocolate (mahogany). We were about ready to pitch the furniture due to the color and water stains. I did two applications and finished with the Prep and Finish product. Results were amazing and anyone we showed the furniture too could not believe the results. Super easy to work with and clean up was very easy as well.

The chair looks brand new! It was so easy and the results are outstanding. I'm ready for my next project. ;-)

    Needed a redder brown for my sofa. This one was a very good match. It turned out a little bit browner than the mahogany color I needed, but it is hard to tell really. Happy I spent the money on this one, even though I have a lot left over!

    I have two aniline leather chairs that were looking rough. There were scratches from pet paws and the dye was coming off due to a cleaner that was used on the chairs. The Mahogany dye was a great match. It was so easy to do and my chairs look amazing and new again.

I got this couch and love seat used and someone one else picked it up for me...I was so disappointed in how it looked...but after finding this project I love my couch!! Couch and love seat = $100 Rub & Restore = $60 End Result = Priceless!! $160 invested...can't beat that!!!”

    I just finished applying your products to my aniline leather sectional and my vinyl theater seating as we discussed last week and I have to say that it worked great!

    We had our reservations. This was the only product like this that we found. It was incredible. The leather was in really rough shape and after sanding, glueing and using rub n restore it literally looks brand new. We will be be using this again. Very close colour match but we did the whole couch anyhow because it made it look so nice

    This dye was a perfect match for my sofa. One cushion had an area that had been wiped with an abrasive. I was able to blend this back in within about 20 minutes total. Looks like new !

    For a first-time user, I must say we had our doubts after the first application but, after coats 2 and 3, the finish was superb. Better than new look.

I followed the instructions for sanding and dying, also applying the clear prep/finish. The results are astounding! I fretted over this couch for six months before having the guts to order this product! Thank you Rub N Restore!

    I have a 15+-year old Navy Aniline sofa set. Re-doing my home, I was just gonna throw these out. They are in great shape as far as structure but my kids decided to scratch words and shapes with their fingernails all over them along w/ fading from the sun, they looked pretty rough. I came across your site and ordered the 8 oz clear/prime and 8 oz Mahogany to give it a try. I got it in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to start. I cleaned and primed and starting dying. I am so excited. Just after one coat, it's totally amazing. I will be making another purchase to do the rest of my sofas. So excited.

    Using this product and the others as recommended, restored my leather sectional and saved it! It did everything I hoped it would. There were several faded spots, and the products did a much, much better job than that of a professional leather restorer did. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend this to anyone.

    Last week I purchased a bottle of your dye to touch up a sofa, love seat and chair that was showing some wear. We had considered purchasing new furniture. Your product has restored these pieces to a BRAND NEW CONDITION!!! So glad I came across your web site, I had tried other products which made the condition worse and I gave up hope. The pieces were very high end and cost several thousand dollars and we love the furniture and were glad to keep them. It was just as advertised follow your directions and the end result is amazing. I have some colleagues and friends in the same predicament and I have passed copies of your brochures to them. Had a visit from my Dad he thought we bought new furniture and could not believe it was the same furniture. GREAT PRODUCT & OUTSTANDING CUSTERMER SERVICE with a solid product line you can not beat.

    I used the dye this weekend and it was easy and the end result was amazing. We have two other leather couches and when they need it I’m definitely coming to you. I was so nervous about doing this and it was all for nothing. The color I chose is perfect.

    Recently stumbled across a product called Rub ‘n Restore, Inc. We were looking for decent furniture for our college cuties and their roommates. The girls have champagne taste on a beer budget as my dad would say. So we found 3 living room pieces on Craigslist for $200 - SCORE. They were leather, in good shape, no weird smells, no rips, cushions were all firm and comfy. The sofa had a stained cushion and some water damage from the owner using the wrong products to try to clean it, the chair was just older and starting to show cracking and some fading. This is the before and after. We chose to do all three pieces in the Mahogany color after trying the Camel color and determining that darker was the look we were going for. Everyone is thrilled!

    I am SOOOOO happy with the results and it was simple. It did take a little muscle to get into the cracks (the cushions on this set do not come off so getting down in the cracks took some work but I got a good arm workout). Anyone can do this. I can't believe someone charges $3000 for this. I got it done in one day. It dries in minutes and is ready for the next coat. Because it was a dramatic change, it took about 5 coats...but it was fast and easy. This will NOT rub off on your clothing when it is dry and sat on it 15 minutes after dyeing it.

    At first I was a little skeptical about buying this color for my dark brown leather couch. But, after seeing all of the company's videos on YouTube, I decided to buy mahogany because it was closest to my dark brown. When it came to my house and I put it on my couch it was 100% the color of couch. I am also so amazed at how easy it is to apply! I will recommend this product to all my friends and family! And it's been two weeks since I did my couch and no color fade or stain clothes.

    We purchased rub and restore to help refinish our hideous green leather love seat recliner and recliner. I honestly didn't expect it to work as well as it did. The pictures speak for themselves and we are now keeping our furniture instead of replacing it! It looks even better in person than what I can capture on camera. Everyone is very impressed with the results.

    I had a great experience when ordering this product. I called to ask about ordering samples. The person I talked to on the phone was knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. The samples were sent out quickly. Once I decided on a color, it came quickly. I viewed the video on how to use the product. It looked too good to be true, but it was not. I used 2 light coats and the chair looks like new. I would definitely recommend this product.
