- 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
2. Washed with clean water
3. Cleaned with
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.
- 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
- 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
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.
- 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

- 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.

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!
- 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
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
Thanks again a million times over.
- 2008 accord with candle damage. looks nice again. thanks
for the help.
- 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.
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
I had no idea this would be so easy. This
product delivers exactly what is promised. Thanks for a great
- 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.
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.

- Seats look great, airbrush worked awesome!
for a great product!
- Hello, I received my order
yesterday and completed some of the planned repairs on my
I cannot express how pleasantly
surprised I am! Your product is very simply to use,
instructions are very clear, and the final result is
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.
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!
- 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!
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.
Love Magic Mender
I just fixed my Isuzu Trooper
driver's seat and it looks brand new. Awesome product! Easy to
- 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!
New York, NY
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
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.
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
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
Thanks for a fantastic product!!
- I would just
like to leave you a Testimonial with pictures.
I am very happy with your magic mender kit. Did not
expect this kind of results!

with the results.

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

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
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 .
- I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your product!
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
- 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
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.
Red Deer, AB, Canada
- 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.
Van Nuys, CA
- 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
- 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
Bob Winters- Cross, SC
- 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.
St. Petersburg, FL
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
I ordered the replacement leather from
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.
- 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.
- Terrific product! Complete, easy to follow instructions. Great
company to do business with. I'm impressed!
- 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!
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!
- WOW, I have to stop and thank you for your honesty. I
promise I will definitely save your website and will use you
in the future if need be.
I appreciate you helping me
out and not just pushing for a sale. More businesses today
should be like you guys!! I would also refer you in a second
because of your honesty! Good for you and your Company. With
this type of attitude.....you will be in business for a long,
- 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
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!
Union City, NJ
- 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
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
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
Thanks so much.
A Happy Customer on Long
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
- 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.
Writer Without A Cause
would also like to say that your product made my leather seats in my 94 Nissan 300zx
look brand new. The color, Lt. brown, was a perfect match and I was extremely pleased with the
results. Thanks again for a great product!!
- 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.
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.
again, thanks for producing such a wonderful product.

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,
- 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!
- 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
- 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.
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
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
- I just
wanted to let you know how happy I am with your repair kits. The
quality of your product and your customer service far
exceeded my expectations.
- 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.
- ...It's businesses
like yours that make shopping on the web a pleasure.
San Mateo, CA
Professional all the way, from your easy to navigate web site,
to your helpful customer service, to your fantastic kits.
Not a single detail has been missed. You're the best!
I previously tried another company's kit, but theirs was too
difficult to use. With Magic Mender, I effortlessly
repaired my Jaguar seats and my leather sofa, both turned
out great, better than expected. The colors are perfect.
You can be
assured that I will tell everyone I know where they can find
Thank you for selling a product that really works.
Beverly Hills, CA
- ...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.
Just a note to let you know that the product is better than
advertised! I am thoroughly impressed how well it matched
my seat color. I'll spread the word about how good this
product is. Thanks again.
- 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
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.
- I thought you
might like to see what your product and advice has done for me.
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 think it came out very good and the color could
not of matched closer. ( Looks better than the picture )

- 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!
- Thank you,
thank you, thank you!!!! I can't tell you how happy my
wife and I are that we found your web site and your excellent
leather repair kit. We have cat's, need I say more?
Our leather couch has taken a beating from them, but your kit
repaired all the scratches and holes in just minutes. I
will be recommending your company to all of my friends.
