STEP 1 - Prep and Clean the Area:
Spray the Color Prep & Cleaner to all areas that are going to be re-colored.Using the enclosed Scuff Pad, scuff the leather to prepare it to accept the Dye Colorant.DO NOT scratch the surface with the scuff pad; apply only light pressure to the leathers surface.Wipe clean and allow the leather to dry before moving on to the next step.
*Prep & Cleaner will not remove oil based staining. You will need Leather Master Degreaser for any oil or protein based stains.
STEP 2 - Apply the Color:
Test the color first in an inconspicuous area before you start dyeing your repair to make sure the color matches. The Dye Colorant can be applied by spraying or using the enclosed sponge.Make sure all adjoining areas are cleaned around the outer edges of the repair area.Put dye in sprayer or on sponge and apply LIGHT coats to the leathers surface.It will take between 2-4 coats of the leather dye to fully achieve the color of the dye and to provide maximum durability.You will want to allow 4-6 hours of dry time between each coat and 24 hours of dry time after the final coat before use.You may use a hair dryer to speed up dry time.If the area is not completely smooth you can lightly sand the leather using 600-1000 grit sandpaper before applying the next coat of Dye Colorant.
Spraying the dye will allow more of an even distribution onto the leathers surface.If you do not have a sprayer we recommend the Crown Spra-Tool Kit.
STEP 3 - Apply the Protection Cream:
After 24-48 hours apply a light coating of Leather Protection Cream for added durability and protection against general soiling.

After working over the phone with the team to get the correct color match I proceeded to repair a 4500 Ashley couch. The results are that of a new couch. Truly wish I could attach photos.
We used the kit to restore the ends of the arms of a beige colored leather recliner. The original pigment had worn off of the ends from frequent “hand wear”. I found a small piece of the colored leather under the chair and sent it with my order. I used the restoration kit to clean the chair back, seat and arms, then used the custom dye to dye the entire top of the arms, applying additional coats to the worn areas. The color match is absolutely perfect, the arms look like new and the arms plead perfectly with the rest of the chair. A very expensive leather recliner looks like a brand new one and is ready for another five years of heavy use!
Best DIY product I have ever used
Previous experience with online ordering has made me skeptical. Howerver, the customer service, ordering process and the PRODUCTS are all top shelf. I would recommend their system to anyone who wants to make their leather furniture look like new with a minimum of effort. It took some time, but was well worth the $$ and time spent.Thank you for asking.
The Color was spot on. This is my second time to order in 15 years. The service was excellent . I am so pleased with the look of my furniture. Will and have recommended this co.
We bought a full kit to repair significant wear and scratches on a 19 year old sofa, chair, and ottoman. Within about 2 hours all three pieces as if they were months old-- of course there will still be some general stretching to the leather and the filling is still a bit worn but the leather looks as if it's NEW again.
Worked like a charm. Very satisfied!
The products worked together to transform my tired leather sofas into terrific updates sofas. Simple directions. Easy to use. Great customer service too.
Fantastic match! Plus the service was excellent I sent the sample to match on a Wednesday it was Labor Day weekend I got a call on Tuesday and received it on Friday. I have to look really hard in good lighting to find the spot I repaired
