Product Description

Once only available to leather repair professionals, LeatherNu is now available in a do-it-yourself consumer kit. LeatherNu contains genuine leather dye to touch up or re-color worn and faded spots on your leather goods. Cows don't come in different colors, so how did your leather get to be the color it is? The original manufacturer used the same type of leather dye found in LeatherNu.

I got this leather repair kit to attempt to repair one of the armrests in my car which had significant wear after 10+ years of "arm resting" on it! The wear consisted of cracks and rips in the leather, several large ones in the front and many-many tiny ones extending to nearly the middle of its length. So significant was the wear that I actually got a new armrest, but I thought I should give it a try. I had absolutely no previous experience in leather repairing, by the way.

I will start by briefly mentioning the instructions: you first apply a repair compound to fill in the gaps/holes in the leather (dries clear), then you paint, and finally you use a sealer compound (clear) to protect the paint if the area is under heavy use (the armrest apparently is; this last step may not be needed for other applications). Pretty simple eh? Read on!

Let me just say that I tried the repair twice. The first time I got a disaster! I think another reviewer mentioned it, taping the texture paper overnight after you apply the repair compound (per instructions) results in a sticky situation! The paper is not easy to remove afterwards, and if you apply a wet towel on top of it for 10 minutes to help in removal (per instructions), you still cannot take it all out perfectly, plus the moisture transfers onto the repair compound and weakens it. Rubbing to remove residuals of the paper (per instructions) makes it even worse as you will likely take out some repair compound with it. Not good! I ended up scrubbing (not just rubbing!) the whole thing with water to remove everything and start over. But make a note, this way you will make the original damage a bit worse, as this removes some leather with it.

My chocolate-brown leather couch had two areas where the color had worn off completely. I was seriously considering investing in a new couch when I saw this Leather Nu product online. I figured I'd give it a try before giving up on the couch and I'm very glad I did. By mixing brown and black dyes together with the supplied dropper and spatula, and then applying it to the worn areas of the couch with the supplied brush, it honestly looks like new again. It took a little experimenting to get the shade just right, but once I did, I painted it on and waited for it to dry. When it did, I could hardly tell where I had recolored. I haven't used the kit for leather repairs, but for recoloring, it's great.

This is a great product, and worked well on the damage my cats did to a leather chair. They put hundreds of small claw scratches right thru the leather. The company's great, and sent me extra grain paper and dye at no charge so I could complete my repairs. It's best to practice first to get the right color match, and if the grain paper dries to the repair it can be easily soaked off with water without messing up the repair. I even mixed some dye into the repair compound, and used it to make some repairs once I found the right color match.

I purchased this product to repair some areas on my leather sofas where the color had come off. I was initially less than pleased with the overall result after I carefully followed the directions. The areas repaired had a cloudy look to them and lacked the shine of the original leather. After the die had thoroughly dried I took a wet rag and wiped it all off. What I discovered is the product sticks very well to the areas where the coloring had come off but didn't to the places that didn't need repair. In the end, I can't see the areas that were repaired and am very pleased with the product.

Here are some other tips, I'll throw in:

Mixing colors: I took the green bottle that I knew I would never use and dumped it out and rinsed it clean. I then used this as a mixing bottle as I could easily cap it back up when I was done to save for future touch ups.

Color matching: Don't bother trying to apply your test mixes to an hidden area on your leather. After mixing the colors in the bottle you used in the above tip and shaking it for several seconds, look at the inside of the cap and compare it next to your leather. Your leather isn't a perfectly uniform color so just get as close as you can and it will be fine.

Don't waste your time with the sponge they included: The sponge they include is way to small to use for anything but very tiny areas. Go to a paint or home improvement store and buy one of those sponge paint brushes.

Don't be afraid to try this product on your leather. Like I said earlier, it doesn't stick well to the undamaged and shiny areas of your leather and can be wiped off with a wet rag.

I had a slight tear in the leather upholstery in my Lincoln Towncar. Other products had pre-mixed colors supposedly to match my color. None of the color swatches came close. I ended up choosing LeatherNu because you could mix your own color to match.

As the review title says, you get too much of some things and not enough of others in the package. I believe others have said and it is true you only get one 2" x 2" backing material fabric. It worked okay for what I needed but if you have a lot of tears to fix you won't have enough of this. They probably could have included more of the repair liquid material too. On the other hand, since you're mixing your own colors you get 7 colors of dye, which most of it you will never use. And you get a big sponge to apply the sealer which is a waste for only about 1 ounce of product. Finally, they give you a sample leather swatch to practice on. Practice what on? Slice a tear in it and try repairing it? Hah, only thing I used this for was to see if the clear sealer you put on last dried dull or shiny. (It dries dull to match the leather.)

The repair part is fairly easy. Cut some backing fabric and apply the repair liquid with the enclosed spatula. It took several applications to fill in everything totally. They include three different kinds of texture cards you're supposed to tape down to the repair overnight to simulate the surrounding grain. This is a total waste of time since the repair liquid sets up in 2-3 minutes and is totally hard within an hour! And you'd have the cardboard card stuck to your repair. I didn't bother with this at all.

The hard part I dreaded was using the dye to match the color to the surrounding leather. Mine is an off-white in the tan family.
