  • My couch and love seat were exposed to the worst conditions ever. First, I had moved and it got horribly scratched and everything imaginable was put on top of it. Secondly, I had tile floor removed (including hardibacker) and drywall work, therefore the furniture was covered with cement dust and drywall dust. Thirdly, my cats had scratched it. I had used this product before, so I knew it capabilities.

    I did the following process:
    1. Vacuumed all the furniture
    2. Washed with clean water
    3. Cleaned with alcohol
    4. Put on the dye
    5. After it had dried, I applied a leather conditioner
    6. Buffed the furniture

    The pictures show the REMARKABLE results.

    Thank you Magic Mender!!!

  • I was skeptical about doing this repair myself and if a product like this would actually work. But the cost was worth the try. Needless to say, I was impressed with the results! My repair was a result of the daily wear of sitting and my 15 mo old thinking it was a scratching pad. She ended up tearing a large patch off (over 12 inches). This product is easy and effective!

  • Hello There,

    I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the All-in-1 Repair kit. The beige leather in my 2010 Lexus RX 450h is extremely delicate. The leather was rubbing off & it started look hideous. I decided to give it a try this morning & I'm very pleased. It covered all of the dark spots.

    I was so pleased with the product that I posted your link to Lexus' Facebook page. I hope this will bring even more exposure to your great product.

    Best of luck!!

    Sincerely,

    Barbara Codner

 
  • Our furniture is only a few years old and my husband and I couldn't believe how fast it was breaking down. We had purchased this expensive 5 year warranty that was going to cover "everything" according to our salesman. I took the appropriate pictures, filled out the forms, mailed them in and it's not covered. We felt so discouraged until I found your website. I started the process about lunchtime and it only took a few hours and that was just because of drying time. We were so impressed at how it turned out. I had to share the photos with my family and they all wanted to know what I used. I will definitely be a lifetime customer with all the leather couches and car seats. Thank you!

  • Thought you might like to see my before, during, and after pictures. I found the Magic Mender product and results very impressive. The pictures speak for themselves! One bit of advice that I could share is that you should ALWAYS finish with a spray coat for even blend able coverage.

  • Dear Magic Mender,

    I was very much a skeptic and was convinced that your product would be ineffective, but offer a temporizing repair. I couldn't have been more incorrect. I live in Arizona where the left hand side of the steering wheel on my 2000 Lexus LS 400 was all but destroyed by the sun. I shopped at several leather repair locations, but each place balked at the idea of doing a steering wheel. By chance I happened to come across your web site and thought I would give your product a try. I could not be more impressed at the quality of the color match, the durability of the finish and the professional look of the repair. My steering wheel looks brand new. The finish is soft, pliable and durable. The tears and holes filled completely and easily and simply cannot be seen any longer, even with careful inspection. I would enthusiastically recommend your product to anyone in need of leather repair. I will certainly take 'before and after' pictures on my next project using your product. Absolutely impressive; well done. Thank you.

    Respectfully,

  • Greetings!

    I want to let you know just how pleased I am with your product. I was reluctant to purchase, based upon the price of the kit...knowing that there are other "kits" out there for much less. But I can honestly tell you that your product is worth every penny. I read the instructions and viewed the tutorial and then I was off and running! The leather bar stool looks great! Much better than I could have hoped for. The barstool leather was brownish-black and was a sling style seat. So, I had to repair both sides. Worked tremendously. If there was one thing I could tell you, it would be that because the sling was not only very worn, but had a 1 inch rip in it, I applied 3 or 4 coats of the white repair compound. Wow, I am a believer and like I said, it was worth every penny!

    Thanks!

  • I bought Magic Mender Color Flex Light Taupe to touch up a worn spot on my 2008 Acura TL. It matched perfectly and you can not identify where the spot has been touched up. The product was really easy to use even for a 28 year old teacher who knows little about car repairs and detailing. Thanks for a nice and affordable product.

  • ...here ya go. I AM TOTALLY A BELIEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Yep, never would have believed that your product could do what it did. This is a 10 year old pontoon boat that has seen it all. The main lounge was faded, ripped in areas and totally trashed by years of 6 foot tall giant fishermen abusing the crap outta a pretty nice boat. Every spring meant hours just cleaning for the season and then storing it for those thrown together weekend trips. it was always half done but as complete as necessary just to get on the water and unfortunately the boat looked it. When I ordered your product ,with your help in choosing the color, I never in a million years would have believed what was about to happen. This "POS" great pontoon fishing boat magically became brand new looking . And I am not kidding. BRAND NEW. If you get out the magnifying glass you can see some of the damage but from 3 feet it looks like it just came off the showroom floor. My $15,000.00 investment is now looking like a 25,000.00 investment. I still can't believe it and I am in shock. It took me 2 full days of hard work but the payback is astounding. I could not be happier. Tomorrow morning I am restoring all the rest of it simply because your product gave it new hope. Gave it a life again and I am proud as a new papa to be able to take this beaten up tub and show it off as a workhorse of a boat that looks like it's a few month old.

    The only complaint I have is that the bottle was just shy about 2 ounces so I had to water it down to finish.. As for my luck I ran out on the lower portion of the lounge so no one is relay going to see it.

    I really am in shock and disbelief. My boat is back and looking like a million bucks. My advice to anyone trying to renew is simple and you need to be very explicit in your instructions. GO SLOW; in fact slow is too fast, slow down, it's worth every second of your time. I know cause I did the research. The lounge alone was going for 7 grand new out the door. Your 200.00 plus bucks saved me almost 6800.00 dollars and all it took was elbow grease and time. There is an old carpenters saying that says measure twice and then measure again before you do anything. This applies here also. Plan it out and learn as you go. The scariest part is in the drying; it actually went through 3 different color changers as it died down and each was scarier but just being patient and waiting was worth it. After washing her down I am gonna send you guys a picture because no one is gonna believe this is an 11year old boat. I am thrilled, and ecstatic. and mostly shocked.

    Thank you guys for a great product and a special thanks to the person who helped me with the color blending help. For the extra 16 bucks for the additional brown and black I was able to dead on match the color of the upholstery and sit back and admire what I never and I mean never would have believed. Knowing that all I have to do is spend a couple hundred a year to keep this boat looking new is more than a miracle. THANK YOU , Thank you and Thank you. When all the pieces are back in and she's been washed up no one is gonna believe this is a 10 plus year old boat.

    You have my respect and appreciation for an unreliable product. I hope it hold up to the sun but if I ever want to sell it I know exactly what to do to get it back in shape.

    Thanks again a million times over.

  • I have two cats that decided to start scratching at my bonded leather couch. i needed it to be fixed cause it looked awful. i came across your product, and i wasn't sure if it would work cause my couch was so torn up, but i felt like i had to try it since the other testimonials were really good. it was shipped in a reasonable time frame, and i found it easy to use. my couch looks fantastic now! i have attached a before and after photo.

    my advice to other people though is it can be a bit time consuming, so be patient with it. also, because you are layering the compound over and over again, make sure it is even, because even with the sanding process, you cant take out ridges if it is uneven. it will show through after you apply the colour layer.

    thank you very much for you awesome product! i would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has had the misfortune of animal damage on their leather furniture.

    Before After

  • I ordered Color Flex to refinish my 2008 Infiniti  EX35 steering wheel. I bought the car used, and the leather was worn, discolored and sticky. It is a light color, so all the imperfections were very obvious as dark spots and loss of luster.

     I looked up the OEM color using your online tools, followed the instructions, and after 3 light coats, applied about 15 minutes apart, the wheel looks and feels like new. It looked good and was usable after about an hour, but after curing for 24 hours, it looks even better; nearly indistinguishable from the factory leather color and texture. 

    I had no idea this would be so easy. This product delivers exactly what is promised. Thanks for a great experience.

  • Its not very often that I reply after receiving an online order, except that I sell products online as well and you never hear the good feedback.

    I wish I took a before and after picture. I bought a $6500.00 couch and love seat (black leather) in 2004, my favorite furniture. by 2010 I moved 5 times and they have been scratched several times. I got a big dog (110 pound Husky) and let him sit on the couches, that was his preferred sleeping spot as well. 2 years later he had worn the leather out until it was beige in most spots. I moved these couches to the basement, bought new couches, which I hate. In November I moved again and left the couches in the basement where I was living. The landlord kept saying come get these, and eventually they said I bet they can be fixed. After a bit of Google searching I found you, ordered your product it cost me $75.00 or so and about 7 hours of time. Wow, they are now show room condition.... I am now going to go on Kijiiji to find some worn out couches to re-finish and complete the rest of the rooms in my house.


    Feel free to add this to your testimonials, its rare that I buy a product online and am so satisfied that I get what is advertised. I owe this review since I am one to deliver a bad review if required.

  • Hello, I received my order yesterday and completed some of the planned repairs on my vintage Jaguar...
    I cannot express how pleasantly surprised I am! Your product is very simply to use, instructions are very clear, and the final result is outstanding!

    The leather on my car looks just NEW again! And this is not a new car at all!

  • I just wanted to say thanks for making my 10 year old couch look like new, again. The color match was prefect (dark green) and I followed the directions and found the process easy.

  • Just wanted to say I repaired a long gouge in the sleeve of my black leather jacket and I can wear it again! Jacket looks great.

    So now I'm going to see how well I can repair where the pets claws scratched in my cream leather couch.

    Thanks

  • This is my second order with your company--the product is outstanding and I no longer have a strong desire to kill my cat for what he did to the leather furniture.  Thank you and keep up the good work.

  • This product is amazing!  We have brand new cream leather couches that our cat immediately clawed and the small rips and holes showed black underneath.  The Color Flex color I ordered was a bit too dark for our particular sofa so I toned it down with the white tint and mixed the perfect color.  The repair compound smoothed down the holes and the couch looks back to brand new.  Thank you!

  • Hello-

    I ordered Magic Mender to help correct some advanced wear on my Infiniti G35 Coupe. These cars are notorious for having the leather seats show wear on the side bolsters, and after 5 years of ownership, mine were badly in need of repair.

    I ordered Magic Mender with, admittedly, limited expectations. But after following the directions for preparation and application of the product, I am VERY pleased with the results.

    The repaired areas look almost showroom condition, and the color match is blended perfectly. I'm very pleased with the product and expect to use it again in the future if needed on my other, passenger seat. Thank you for a great product at a reasonable price!

    Scott Riley

  • I just had to tell you that your product is amazing. I had a steering wheel in a recently purchased classic car that I didn't know what to do with. It was saddle leather color and was torn up around the diameter. I picked the product I needed and used your Color Chart to pick the color. It match perfectly and by following your instruction I completed the repair in about 90 minutes. You included everything in the kit that was needed and it turned out fantastic, as good as a new wheel. Buying the repair kit from you and doing it myself saved me hundreds of dollars, and it was easy to do.

    Thank You for a great product.

  • Hi, Just want to say that I repaired a "quarter" size hole in the seat of my '03 Mustang. Your product was easy to use , repair looks great, I just hope that holds up in use. Thanks!

    William P. Coons

  • I have nice Italian leather couches that our cat scratched up badly. When leather is scratched by a cat, it doesn't leave long claw marks, it creates rough holes with small leather tags sticking out. Very ugly.

    The repair compound filled in the tears and smoothed down the tags. It blended in so well, you can't tell it was ever scratched! This product also doesn't crack or peel. It's amazing!

    Carolyn

  • I am so delighted with the results of my repairs that I had to write to let you know! I was skeptical before I made my purchase but I figured it was worth the money to give it a try (repair cost was estimated at $1200). I have a 2001 Lexus Ls430 and some cracking in the front seat which is just usual wear, pigment missing from the door area from just normal use, for a car 10 years old, it was just needing to be freshened up to get it looking better. I not only colored the small cracks in the seat but the passenger seat as well, with just the one kit, I still have lots of color product left since that is all I needed for my car. WOW! My seats look like new, feel new and I dont consider myself to be a fix-it person at all! Your automotive kit is worth it's weight in gold am Im telling every friend I know about it since it just makes you have CAR FEVER about your own car again since it looks just showroom new. Huge smile since I was able to do this myself and easy that ANYONE could do it.

    Best wish,

  • Love your product.

    We have a beautiful black leather sofa with one cushion that was cracking and had a small one inch cut in it.
    We ordered your repair kit and followed the directions. It worked exactly the way you said it would. The cushion is now restored, looks beautiful and matches the others cushions perfectly.

    Your product is amazing. Thanks for saving our sofa!

  • The leather seats on my 2004 Lincoln Navigator were beyond cleaning.  The ground in dirt in the grain and wrinkles was to the point that the color was wearing off with further scrubbing.  One bottle was enough for two light coats to restore the finish to a factory new appearance on the front seat backs, seat, and sides.  I have ordered a second bottle for the rear seats.  I cannot recommend this product more highly.

  • I own a 2000 Volkswagen Beetle with grey leather seats. The driver's side seat had started to unravel along a vertical seam on the side. The split in the seat was about 5 inches long. I had pretty well decided that I was going to have to buy a replacement seat from the salvage yard. I read the ad for Magic Mender though didn't hold out much hope. But, the price was right.

    I sewed the seam closed, cleaned the seat thoroughly and then applied the filler compound in several coats. I painted the joint several times feathering out the paint. The repair is quite invisible and is holding up well almost a year later.

    This kit works amazingly well. It produces an durable, undetectable repair even on large areas. Highly recommended!

  • I own a Chevy SSR and the leather cover on the steering wheel had a gouge in it about the size of a pencil eraser.  The quote for replacing the leather on that part of the steering wheel was $250 so I thought that Magic Mender would be worth a try.  The results are excellent!  One needs a magnifying glass to find the repair.  Word to the wise:  Much like other good repair processes, don’t rush.  Allow plenty of drying time during each stage.  And, like doing good body and paint work, use the sandpaper sparingly and with a light touch at each point until the desired results are achieved.  Magic Mender works.

  • I do not have before and after photos.  No one would believe it anyway.  This product is absolutely amazing. The cushions on our 20 year old Natusi leather couch were terribly worn. We were going to buy new furniture or try to take the leather from a matching chair and reupholster the cushions. I found your product on the Internet and thought I would give it a try.

    The couch looks brand new. Unbelievable. The color was a perfect match. I do not know how this will wear but it certainly looks fantastic.

  • Hi folks.

    Just want to share details of another successful project.
    I have a leather sofa that is structurally sound, but the seating area was becoming quite worn from pet damage and heavy use, with people sleeping on it (cause it's so comfy).
    I found the best color match within the GM family of automotive interiors.
    After covering everything except the seating area, I got to work patching and smoothing. Also had a couple of small punctures. All those blotches you see in the photos are the patching material, followed by a couple thin coats of finish.
    I kept applying thin coats (with Preval sprayer) until I was happy with the finish an the repairs were no longer visible. The key is to apply many thin coats.
    I think it turned out very nice.
    A very economical fix!!

  • I finally got around to using Magic Mender on a cut in the side bolster of my driver's seat (Toyota Highlander). I figured the product would work ok, but it would be evident that things were "patched". To my surprise, the repair isn't evident unless you know exactly where to look. The color I picked (using the color code on the vehicle) matched perfectly. Alas, I forgot to take any pictures.

    Thanks for a fantastic product!!

  • Your product works great. Perfect match for our two leather sofas. All I needed to do was re-dye two spots where our heads rested on the high-back area. They had lost their color.  I used your sprayer and blotted the area with a cloth. The area is now perfect and cannot be detected at all. Amazing.

    Good to know we have a bottle of your product available.

    Thanks.

    Dear Magic Mender,

    We had just bought a new leather sectional. While transporting home, the wedge corner piece got caught on a staple sticking out the back of one of the other pieces. It caused a big tear in one spot and several deep scratches in another.

    I went online to find someone or something to fix the problem. I found your site, read all the other testimonials and decided to give your repair kit a try.

    Man, what a great product! With a little patients and your system, it worked a miracle. Now you can't even tell it was ever damaged.

    Thanks,

  • I have a 2000 Lexus GS400. I found the Lexus-Dark Taupe #13 was nearly a perfect match for my steering wheel and gear shift knob. Red circles indicate damage. Sorry no before pic of the gear shift knob but trust me, it was worse than the wheel.
    I used the touch up kit and just painted the whole steering wheel and gear shift knob. I still have 95% of the bottle left.
    I'll be ordering up some more to do my wife's 2002 GMC Yukon beige seats.

  • Greetings :

    We recently bought two new leather chairs and were concerned that our 12 year old leather couches might look a little aged. I decided to purchase your repair kit and give the couches a try. I am amazed at the results. Most of our repairs were on the edges of cushions and corners of the frame. The color match was near perfect. I cannot really detect where the repairs were made. I am very pleased with the results and will probably purchase another kit for the chairs for the inevitable nicks and corner wear .

    Thank you

I just got finished repairing my 1 year old couch that my cat wanted to use as a scratching post, and I'm standing back in astonishment!!! This product is just the best, easy to use, affordable and the end result is just wonderful!! I would recommend this great system to all my friends, family, and anyone who will listen.

    THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY COUCH!!

  • Hi. I just wanted to say how good this stuff is! A while ago I purchased some ivory #375 for the leather in my Lexus rx300 and it worked great! Last week I noticed some wear on the steering wheel so I figured I'd try it out, but its the dash color. I called the dealer to which they stated the dash color was "sandalwood" but it didn't match any of your references. So I took a guess and bought dark taupe #13. Well it's a PERFECT match! If you want, you should audit the name to "sandalwood" for it seems this is what the dealer tells people. It matches 99-03 Lexus Rx300 and possibly other models? This info might help other customers in the future, just figured I'd tell you!

    Thanks for making such a great product! FAST shipping too, I couldn't believe it! I will DEFF. be doing business with you again soon!

  • After enjoying successful and thoroughly satisfactory results with Magic Mender, I ran out of repair compound. I was in a hurry, so I bought what the staff of an automotive parts house considered its best leather mender. The results were disappointing. I'd assumed there were similar products on a par with yours, but friends have fared no better with other substitutes. I'm now convinced Magic Mender is the gold standard in leather and vinyl repair. I won't settle for less.

  • I just finished using your product on my worn, cracked, and faded BMW leather seats. I just have to tell you it was an awesome transformation. It took me and my wife about 12hrs to do my whole car including door panel inserts. As you state in your instructions, the key to a good finish is to apply very light coats. I ended up putting about 6-8 coats just to be safe but it's worth the time. The only thing I would change about the process is to mandate sanding if you use the mender putty. I found out through trial & error that you pretty much have to sand the putty if you really want that smooth feel. Another thing that sold me was your extremely prompt support and customer service, I had a question about color, and you responded very fast. The whole site is true to what is stated and that is a really great thing to have. Now comes the true test in seeing how long it will last but I have faith!!! (And just FYI...it took 1 1/2 bottles of the color flex to complete the whole car)
    Here are some pictures of the seats. Please feel free to use them on your website.

  • Hello there,

    I am writing to tell that I'm very impressed with your product. I used it on my cream leather sofa and it looks like new. It had several large scratches and I can't see them at all now.

    Previously I had someone from Fibrenew repair the area. It broke down the first time anyone sat on the sofa. That's when I decided to try Magic Mender, which cost me much less. The instructions were very clear and I'm so delighted with the result.

    This is the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Magic Mender is high on my list of things for which to be thankful.

    Thank you so very much.

  • I used your product to repair the driver's seat of my 1992 Toyota Celica. Following your directions closely, I found the results to be quite satisfactory; frankly much better than I had anticipated being skeptical by nature. The color match for the leather (dark gray) was perfect. Though I initially thought the kit price to be a bit high, it certainly was much less than recovering the seat. I hope that the repair compound and Color-Flex will remain useable over the next few years as they are kept (well-sealed) in storage, awaiting the next leather repair. Thank you for a fine product that works as advertised.

  • Wow! I received my Magic Mender repair kit in less than a week using USPS Priority Mail---great speed since it's hard to imagine another continental destination farther from Camano Island than Estero, Florida (between Ft. Myers and Naples).

    Your repair compound and Color Flex product is fantastic! I used it on a damaged front seat of my 2004 Honda Accord that I was dreading would require an expensive upholstery job at an auto leather repair shop. The seat looks brand new--you can't tell there ever was a problem. I was very skeptical of your claims and customer testimonials, and almost decided not to order your repair kit thinking it would be a total waste of money. Your products have exceeded my expectations, and the professional looking results are terrific..

  • I purchased a used leather couch that had a tear in the corner of one of the cushions. I checked around and found that it would cost anywhere between $150 to $180 to have someone come out and repair it. I googled leather repair and found Magic Mender. After reading the testimonials and viewing some of the before and after images I decided to give it a try. I certainly am glad I did! I found Magic Mender to be easy to use and the results miraculous. Take a look for yourself.

  • Wow! I have a beautiful midnight blue leather furniture set. It is 19 years old, from Italy, I bought it while living over seas. Quality, second to none. I was devastated because it looked like we were going to have to replace. I searched the web for one last effort. I received your product on Monday late afternoon. After work on Tuesday, I did all the cushions, and the arms and any touch ups, AMAZING! My furniture looks brand new! Attached is the ottoman. I cannot thank you enough!!

  • I cannot believe how awesome the Magic Mender is. My burgundy leather chesterfield had deep groves in it, ( from my two choc. labs who aren't suppose to be on the chesterfield, but if I am not in the room they think it is theirs). I was at my wits end, The chesterfield and loveseat are still in great condition but the groves and wear and tear just stood out like a sore thumb. It was the only thing I could see when I walked into the living room. I had tried other products, that would fade the marks but they would be back in days. I ordered Magic Mender, had the product in 2 days, the kit looked so simple I thought I had just wasted $60.00, But WOW, it worked. It is absolutely amazing. The seat cushions look brand new. It is so simple to do. The instructions are very simple and easy to follow and the results are incredible. My family has asked me to stop showing them the repairs, and I am no longer allowed to bring in strangers off the street and show them how great the Magic Mender worked. Everything with my
    experience with this company has been outstanding, from choosing the colour, ordering, details on shipping and the product itself.

    Thank You

  • I searched the internet for the best leather repair kit I could find and decided to try your product. the item I was trying to repair was an expensive motorcycle saddlebag that was damaged after a spill. The bag had
    heavy damage to the right side and seemed like it might be beyond repair. I found your product fairly easy to use and made 2 repairs to this bag before
    color-flex matching. The results speak for themselves. Thanks for the awesome product. I will keep using it in the future and I will recommend it
    to my friends.

  • I have just finished restoring the interior of my 1999 Cadillac DeVille, with your wonderful product. I followed the directions exactly as they were written, took my time and the results were amazing!!! I applied numerous light coats and sanded between each one. I am extremely pleased with the way it looks. Your product is everything you advertise it to be and more. I have a 1997 Sebring Convertible that is in near mint condition except for a few tiny flaws in the interior that I plan to repair with Magic Mender next. Please consider me an extremely satisfied customer. Thank you very much

  • I had used alcohol to remove a permanent marker spot on our leather sofa and ended up with an area where the dye came off too. After spending a day reading on the internet about leather repair products, I decided to try Magic Mender. The testimonials and photos were helpful in making the decision. I waited a week to attempt the repair. I was worried it would look worse than it was, but as you can see the results were great. The sofa sits under a skylight, so any imperfections blare right out; the results had to be perfect. I've very pleased with your product. Because of the professional looking results, I don't have to rearrange the living room, just to hide the affected seat. I found that using a thick, cotton sock to blend the product on, in very thin layers, proved to be a good technique. I devoted an hour to blending a small amount on, and waiting 5 min., layer, by layer, as the product label suggested. Thank you - informative website and wonderful product.

  • Love your product- I covered the arms, and footrest on my 6 yr. old Lazyboy recliner. (the finish was damaged earlier due to sitting in the chair when covered with perspiration)

    I ordered the replacement leather from http://www.brettunsvillage.com/leather/sides.htm

    I used Dap contact cement to glue the new surfaces. A little “liquid nails” around the edges worked great. (I sanded the edges to make them smooth-the liquid nails takes the color-flex just fine). I covered the entire chair in Color-Flex so everything would match. I wouldn’t say the chair looks new but am very satisfied with the way it turned out.

    Thanks

  • Very nice product. I refinished the leather seats in my Mustang GT Convertible and they look great! I had some pet damage (scratches and punctures) and normal wear spots & cracking. The color match (Ford Midnight Black) was just right. Materials provided were easy to work with, and I applied many thin coats of Color Flex with a foam brush. I then used the pump sprayer to blend it all together, taking great care to make sure the nozzle was always clean and putting out fine mist. I achieved the best results by applying Color Flex to the entire seating surface...then spraying on the finish coat to hide any streaking or uneven spots. When dry, I gave the seats a bath with Lexol Conditioner. The whole process took me a couple days, but you can not rush this type of project in order to achieve a fine quality finish. Thanks for your help.

  • I just finished using your product on my very worn and very tired BMW leather seats. I must say it is amazing the difference after the application.  It took me about 4 hours per seat, including prep and clean up time.  As you state in your instructions, the key to a good finish is to apply very light coats, it may take up to 4 coats to get a solid finish but it's worth the time.  Another thing that sold me was your extremely prompt support and customer service, I emailed you at 7pm on a Friday and I got a response in 15 minutes, that is unheard of now a days!  Thanks again.

    Here are some pictures of the seats. Please feel free to use any of them on your website.

  • You guys are awesome!

    When my husband and I first got married we decided on a black leather couch and arm chair specifically because we had an indoor cat. We figured that it would collect less fur and that when we had a child marks would show up less. To protect ourselves we even bought the expensive protection plan at the furniture store. Well almost five years later we've moved states and our couch looks a lot worse for the wear. We tried to get the furniture protection plan to cover the damage but no one told us that if we couldn't find the original receipt they wouldn't even talk to us! The plan is maintained by a third party company, so even though the store knew we were still covered we couldn't get the other company to deal with us. I thought that all was lost. I resigned myself to the fact that we had bought a $1500 scratching post for the cat. I was embarrassed to have people sit on the sofa. But then I found your product. You can't even see the damage!!! It literally disappeared!!! Thank you!!!!

  • I just wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the material I ordered to repair the leather bucket seat in my Chrysler Town & Country. I was frankly skeptical that it would work, but it was easy and worked very well. It's been about 3 months, and still looks great. Thanks!

  • Gentlemen:

    Your instructions on repairing a leather steering wheel are nothing short of amazing! I followed the directions I received from your site to brush on instant krazy glue and use backing soda exactly as you recommended. Then I sanded the repair to a smooth finish . Today I painted on the magic mender colorflex leather and vinyl coating as instructed .: Toyota med oak 456 ( a perfect match by the way) and the results are a near perfect restoration of the steering wheel on my 1993 Toyota Camry. Toyota quoted me $ 800 to replace the steering wheel. I restored it thanks to you for less than $40. It was truly amazing. Thanks for the great instructions and support. Please use this as a customer testimonial. I only wish I had " before" pictures to compare to the final result. If your other products work this well, no wonder you are the leaders in leather repair!

    regards,
    John DiLiddo

  • Thanks to your Magic Mender, I was able to save my 14 year old leather sofa. My kitty had literally scratched so many holes in the sides that the threads took me over 2 hours to cut off. I put on the mender, and still saw the gray threads. I thought there was no way it was going to look any better. I applied the paint, and to my amazement, the sofa looked fabulous! You just can't tell there were any repairs made. The color blended well into the existing color. Magic Mender was easy to use and apply. It took me more time to prepare the sofa than it did to use magic mender. I also used the paint to cover over some wear on the sofa. My only regret is that I did not take a before picture to send to you so you could see how damaged my sofa was. Thank you for a great product for a great price.

  • I just wanted to tell you how satisfied I was with the color flex that i had sent to repair my white leather sofa. I followed the instructions, and put on three very light coats, and the repair is virtually invisible. I cannot believe i saved that sofa for a mere $14.95. What a pleasure to find a product that works so well.

    Thank you sincerely,

  • I just wanted to share with you my experience with your product.

    I have a pair of Natuzzi leather sofa and chair which are 11 years old. The chair and sofa unfortunately had some bad scratch marks in the corners where a cat I once had took to them so badly it took the leather off very badly on the corners of them the sofa's where good but I hated to look at the corners of them and had pretty much decided they are damaged and it's time to replace them because I had tried other products which just made it look worst than they where before I used the product on them. But thanks to your product those two pieces look like brand new! I have never used any sort of fabric or leather repair product which was as easy and actually did exactly what it claims to do! You would think they where new ones or I had some professional do it and paid a big bill for it too. This by far has been one of my best purchases I have ever made!

    Thank you!

  • A visiting friend sat down on our 5 month old leather couch with a pen in his back trouser pocket. Wham! Blue ink all over one of the seat cushions of the couch. I attempted to remove the ink with rubbing alcohol-something I had read on the web. It removed the ink but also discolored the leather. I called in a professional. He wanted $200.00 to $400.00 to re-dye the couch. I went on the web and did a search for "leather repair kits". Your company showed up in the search so I navigated to your site. One of the colors in your color chart looked like a perfect match. I ordered your basic kit and today finished the repair. THE COUCH LOOKS LIKE NEW! I am not kidding. I know your website says that "the repair may look like a repair". But this exceeds all expectations. Thank you.

  • Our beautiful, new living room furniture was just delivered on Saturday from Ethan Allen. By the following Wednesday, one of our three cats had decided that the new leather recliner made a perfect scratching post and she had done so much damage that I was sick to my stomach. The cushion was torn up in all four corners and the armrests had large scratches and visible little holes in them. My husband and I were so upset -- both with the cat and with ourselves for getting leather furniture given our choice of pets.

    Anyway, in desperation, I did a search on the internet to see if there was any product that could help undo the damage. Like everyone else, I was skeptical about your product, but I figured I had nothing to lose. The chair already looked lousy. What a happy ending! The day your package arrived in the mail, I spent about 45 minutes working on the chair, and Voila! It looks terrific. Okay -- it's not straight-from the-factory perfect, but NOBODY would ever notice that there had been any damage done unless specifically pointed it out to them. It really looks great. I can look at the chair and smile again.

    By the way, on the same day that I found your product on the internet, I found another product to solve my "kitty" problem. Given that many of your testimonials are from people who have had their furniture ruined by their cats, maybe you'll let me pass along this website. I found a product called "Softpaws" -- sold at www.softpaws.com -- which are little acrylic tips that I've glued onto my cats claws so that they are no longer sharp. My "girls" have now been wearing them for 10 days and they work beautifully! Hopefully, the Softpaws will continue to keep my chair safe, and I now have peace of mind knowing that if they do somehow inflict more damage, I have my magic mender kit to make it all better.

    Thanks so much.

  • I purchased another leather repair kit from another website and was very unhappy with the results. It was so obvious that the area was patched and the results looked horrible. I saw your website and I was a bit apprehensive about buying your product at first, but I finally decided to go ahead and purchase it. I covered the area with the color flex where I used the other leather repair kit and to my surprise, I can't even notice that there was a repair done. I continuously applied the colorflex and now it's looks almost as good as new. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.

  • I have just finished using your color-flex product on the front seats of my 1996 BMW 328iC. I am a writer by trade, and a bigmouth by nature yet I find my initial reaction is utter speechlessness.

    I almost regret telling my friends I was going to use the product because I could just as easily have said I spent thousands having the seats reupholstered. The results are truly that incredible. For application, I treated the seats like I was staining a piece of furniture. First, I painted the color-flex on in sections then gently wiped off the excess with a clean dry rag. I repeated this process three or four times and the result was a perfect match and a completely even application.

    As someone who makes a living writing advertisements, I wish Magic Mender was one of my clients because I have never been so impressed with any product I have ever purchased in my life. If you aren't selling millions of these kits a year... you should be. Plus... every detail shop and auto restorer in the country should know about this product.

    Thanks for such a terrific product and for making my beloved Bimmer ragtop a beautiful car again.

  • I just finished repairing the seat in my 1990 Dodge Stealth. Your product was as easy to use as spreading butter on toast, and the color-flex finish was a PERFECT match to the car's interior. I was worried about having enough Color-flex dye to finish the repair but, there was enough to cover all of the scratches on both front seats and I still have half the bottle left. I can't believe how great the repair looks! All that is left is to see how the repair holds up.

  • Very seldom do I ever run across a product that delivers what is promised. Your product, however, delivered outstanding results - exactly as advertised. The back seat to my 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis was badly cracked. A leather shop in town wanted over $200 to repair the seat; A salvage yard wanted over $500 for a "used" seat cushion providing they could even find one that matched. After investing less than $50.00 for your automotive kit, I repaired two very deep cuts in the seat cushion, and numerous surface cracks. I am totally amazed at how perfectly the Color-Flex finish matched the color of the original interior. The seat cushion looks as good as new.

    Once again, thanks for producing such a wonderful product.

  • I was hesitant to attempt the repair of the seat on my 2000 Z3.  A  2" x 4" area had rubbed through the vinyl from getting in and out of the car while wearing a pager.
    The repair turned out great! It can only be detected by very close examination.   My only regret is that I did not do a before and after picture.  Thanks for a great product.  (By the way, the pager is history)

  • Thanks.  I did my Mercedes seats this weekend with the sprayer and it came out *amazingly * well.  As long as the dye holds up over time -- we'll see -- this is just a killer system.  I would be surprised if a professional upholstery shop could do a better job.  If found it necessary to really screw up my courage because the stuff went on much darker than it ultimately ended up, and I wondered if it was too dark but over the course of an hour or so it lightened up to just the right color...

  • I just wanted to write a quick note to inform you of how impressed I am with your product. My husband and I recently purchased a navy leather couch. We have cats, but the sales person assured us that the cats would never touch our leather. She said that for some reason cats don't like the feel of scratching on leather. My husband didn't by the sales pitch, but I believed her. Unfortunately, she was wrong. Our cats punctured hundreds of small holes in our new couch. I was physically sick over the problem and embarrassed that I could be so gullible. I was ashamed to even invite guests over because the couch looked so horrible. I called the furniture retailer, the couch manufacturer, and checked local leather repair shops to see if anyone could help us fix the damage. No one could offer me a solution. As a last resort, I went to the Internet. I was definitely skeptical when I stumbled onto your website, but I figured that the situation couldn't get any worse, so I gave your product a shot. It worked miracles! You can't even tell that my couch was damaged and the color matches perfectly!! I am so impressed that I would recommend your product to anyone!

    Thank you very much,
    Katherine Curtis

 


 

  • My husband and I just bought a brand new leather couch. We kept it covered during the day so our cats wouldn't get to it, but wouldn't you know, curiosity got to them. One day I came home from work and the covers were off and the couch was scratched on all three seat cushions and the arms. (We hadn't even paid off the couch yet!) Long story short--we bought Magic Mender and the scratches are virtually invisible!

    Thank you!

  • My name is Tina McKay and I just received your repair kit a few days ago. I was about ready to give up on my leather couch and love seat as it had a hole in the arm the size of a dime and a lot of wear on the seats. I even told my husband a few days ago that I think we need to purchase a new set. I gave your kit a try and I am amazed! You can barely tell where the hole was and today I started using the color flex coating and have decided to do the entire surface of my furniture. It almost looks new again! Thank you so much for having such a great product. You saved me 1500.00 on a new set of furniture and now I do not have to cover up the hole with a throw blanket when company comes over out of embarrassment.

  • I purchased the Automotive Color Flex for my 1999 Toyota Avalon, in order to cover up some horrible black scratches that the previous owner left from a cell phone installation. His scratches went through the interior paint in multiple locations, and really took away from the beauty of an Avalon interior. I actually got $500 knocked off the price of the vehicle because of the damage, and repaired it to like new condition with your kit for less than $30. Wonderful products...you should be commended.

  • I have something to say about the automotive leather repair kit that I purchased from you.

    Excellent!  I couldn't believe how well the color you provided matched the original color of my car seats.
    My car seats suffered from dry cracks from years of abuse.  Your kit made all the cracks disappear and gave my seats a new smooth appearance.
    I'm very satisfied with the results and considering how much money I saved, it is well worth it.

  • Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with your product.  Our $1300 leather recliner was damaged on the right arm by the dogs nails.  About 15 puncture holes, 2 of which had to be plugged.  I brought pictures of the damaged chair to the Leather Furniture where I purchased it.  I was told they could recover the arm for approximately $250 plus pick-up, delivery and shipping to the factory.  After searching the net, I came to "Magic Mender"  Decided to give it a try, and "VOILA"  It did a great job.  Thanks

  • Just wanted to say that your product works exactly as advertised.  I had the opportunity to pick up a leather sofa and leather loveseat at a nearly 75% discount.  The loveseat had a very small tear along the side when it was being delivered to the original buyer.  I did the repair today using Magic Mender and it was easy.   I ordered the black kit and it was a near perfect match.  If you didn't know where the repair was made chances are you would never find it.

    Thanks again!

  • ...My two cats, who had never touched furniture before, decided that the new leather furniture was the place too start sharpening their claws.  My husband first noticed it around the beginning of June and was ready to kill the cats. I told him that there had to be something out there to repair it. He didn't believe me. I didn't believe me. But I crossed my fingers and went on the internet to see if there was anything that might make it look better. I found your site and ordered your kit.  I put off doing the repair for a month. (I really didn't think it would work). Today I finally worked on one of the arms of the love seat that had been terribly torn up.

    I and my husband are amazed.  We can't see any signs of the damage.  The color match is perfect and all of the cat damage is gone. To top it all, it was easy and fast.

    I, George and Gracie, (the cats), thank you for the reprieve from a fate that was none to happy.  My husband and I thank you for saving our investment.

  • I want to express my thanks for the help your company gave me when I was in need of trying to repair my leather recliner and couch.

    I followed the explicit instructions carefully and the results were great. You cannot find the areas that were scratched.  The color in the custom kit was an excellent match.  My son has recently purchased leather furniture and with children in his home who knows he might need help as I did.  I also have been in touch with the household moving company that did the damage and they
    want to know how successful I was so that they might recommend your company. This also saves them money because it a lot less expensive than a complete reupholstering of the chair.

    Thank you again.

  • I used the kit to repair a $1300 red leather chair torn by a screwdriver.

    Although I used only a 3/4" circle of the sub-patch, a minuscule amount of glue, and the tiniest amount of filler, the color (Napa red) was an almost exact match, the repair detectable only by the feel of the sub-patch in the back.

    Thank you!

This is the first time I have tried to repair leather, but with your help and product I found it quit easy to follow your directions.

  • I am so delighted with the results of my repairs that I had to write to let you know!  I was skeptical before I made my purchase but I figured it was worth the money to give it a try (replacement cost was estimated at $300).  I was selling my 1996 Lexus and needed to repair a hole and some cracking in the front seat.  I not only repaired the drivers seat but the passenger seat as well, with just the one kit, I still have some of the products left.  WOW!  My seats looked like new!  Because the seats turned out so well, I raised the price of my car by $700, and I got my asking price.  Your Automotive kit is worth it's weight in gold!
