Product reviews and photos
We ended up making a slight color change , from beige to light gray (stone). I followed the directions and after a few hours had a wonderful looking couch again .
Take your time when applying ! I usually have no patience but buckled down and spent about 4 hours total between deep cleaning it and applying the product . Goes on super easy!
The customer service was awesome! Such a great company . I also recommend just getting some swatches before you choose a color , and to have them evaluate your couch . They offered great advice .I took it and ended up choosing a brand new color . Extremely happy with the results .
I've decided to completely restore the Jaguar by using all or as many of the cars original parts where possible. I took delivery of the Jaguar approx a month back and immediately removed the car's interior which has acres of walnut veneer and a herd of leather hide.
Everyone said and I quote "you'll never get that leather looking good again in a million years" and "omg that is going to cost you a small fortune it needs a new interior".
Well I knew different with my previous experience working with leather I realised the interior although a total dried up crunchy mess, was salvageable.
After getting quotes to have the interior redone from £9,000 to £17,000, just for the leather work I thought I'd check out products available for a DIM (do it myself)! job.
After looking at 100's of products it was yours at Rub n Restore I went for.
I am delighted I chose you guys just look at the before and after results on the attached photo's, all done by hand, mainly prepped in the garden in the lovely weather were having in England at the moment and finished in the garage.
Took me about 67 hours in total, prep is very important and your fillers are a joy to work with.
Your products are the best I've ever come across so easy to apply being user friendly with no B.S. the products do exactly what they're supposed to and I'd highly recommend them to any one that figures their upholstery is way past it use by date! Amazing results which has saved me a fortune.
Let me add I may have had some experience as a vehicle upholstery trimmer at Jaguar Cars but I was a boy and it was limited only to almost 2 years, but believe me when I say these products are second to none for ease of use, that any body with half a brain like me can use them!!
Highly recommended in fact I can't say enough about your products I can't wait to get back out and finish the front seats and door cards.
I'll be proud to recommend you to all fellow Classic Jaguar and car enthusiasts some of which already can't believe those are the same seats!!!
Brilliant and thank you!
My college student will be taking this to her apartment next fall and I'm sure she will now be able to get 20 more years out of it. As it is perfectly called, all we did was RUB on the product and my furniture has been RESTORED!

I bought it to paint a 28 year old couch, which is currently in our basement family room. It was a great quality couch, but old nevertheless not to mention the burgundy color, no longer matched the new decor. The product arrived as expected. I read in the instructions that to change a color from the deep burgundy to gray it would most likely take 3-5 coats and was fully prepared for that. I have only applied one coat as of right now. The product goes on easily and the coverage is great. The couch is completely covered and already looks brand new. I will definitely add 2 more coats tomorrow. I am extremely pleased your product and highly recommend it.

Purchased the Slate leather color to bring these benches into our new look.
Love the results! I also used their cleaner before coloring, and finished off with clear finish. After reading directions and reviews, I used a mixture of 2 parts color to one part of the clear finish and achieved a satin finish (just using the clear coat produces a high gloss finish that I did not want).
My pieces were in good condition (about 6 years old) and did not need repair products.
Very happy with the outcome.
Fyi, I emailed a couple of questions along the way and received a great response in hours, not days. Great customer service!
Easy to apply, but beware this is a very thin product. I managed to spill about 20% of my 16 ounce bottle but still had plenty to finish both benches.
Highly recommend this product.
I finished with a glaze of 2 parts dye 1 part Clear.
My friends are loving the progress!
We think it turned out really well. We paid $4,000 for this sectional brand new and the surface broke down soon after we bought it and it became a mess. We are very happy with the “new” sectional that we have again! Your product is amazing!

Your products rock! My family is so impressed and so am I. I have restored 4 large pieces of furniture with RubnRestore! All look fantastic.
It's a good product, & easy to apply.
It took me a few hours to do 2 cushions, but with the state of them to begin with, that seems very reasonable.

Thank you for your great advices!
Before and after of the first one are attached.
Actually, I did NOT use the Clear Prep + Finish! In pre-experimenting, I noticed that I needed the full strength Dye to get to get the coverage, as you mentioned might happen in your published directions. I had pre-cleaned with alcohol and 409. As it turns-out, the Dye by itself dried with the same sheen as the existing couch sheen!!! I actually only really used two coats.
In trying to repair the worn areas before I found Rub-n-Restore, I went to half a dozen furniture stores in Bakersfield, asking if they carried a dye type repair product. In every case, I was looked at like I had just landed here from another planet; I was astonished!!! I did find one upholstery repair shop that said, if I brought it to him, he could "paint" it for $300!!! I quickly left and came home started Googling!! The reason I spent so much time looking here, is that I wanted someone to talk to face-to-face and maybe see some actual examples of re-dying before somewhat going with blind hope on Google!!! I was most impressed by your website and so here we are, with you with a very happy customer!!! You have an excellent website!!!
You now absolutely have a happy customer in Bakersfield, California!!!
