I wanted to take the time to say thank you for developing a product that is so easy to apply and the results are simply amazing!
My Magic Mender story started about four years ago when I needed to re-color some of the interior on my 2007 Porsche convertible. I bought it used and the dashboard and seats looked faded. Porsche said there was nothing that could be done to revive the interior. Well, they were wrong! I searched and found your website, ordered the color flex from your easy to follow guide. My car looks brand new after applying your product. The color matched perfectly, too. I brought it to the Porsche Dealership and showed them the interior. They were astonished how well it blended in with the rest of the interior.
Last month I borrowed my brother’s 1999 Benz. Since I had the car for a while, I detailed it and discovered how badly the seats had faded and their dog had put many scratches in the leather. Magic Mender to the rescue, again! The interior looks brand new, and my brother thought I had the seats re-upholstered. He was shocked when I told him about the product and spent $26.00.
Onto the tough job.
We have three leather Natuzzi brand matching couches in our family room that we purchased 21 years ago. The couches were in great mechanical condition, but with six of us sitting on them for so long, they looked absolutely terrible. We spend approximately $7,000.00 back then for the couches. My wife thought it would be best to replace the couches. I mentioned your product and she was skeptical that it could help them in the condition they were in (many scratches, scuffs and fading).
I sent a sample of the leather to Magic Mender and crossed my fingers that they could help. I received an actual call-back and they matched it to the interior color from an older BMW color, who would have thought! After prepping and coloring the seat bottoms and arm rests, our couches look BRAND NEW. The entire process took about eight hours because I applied five coats of the product. As usual, I followed the simply directions and used a hair dryer to speed things up. Thank you for saving me many thousands of dollars in not having to purchase a new set of couches, very thankful. My wife is amazed how new and fresh they look. This project cost us about $140.00. Not a bad return of investment!
I bought the Leather & Vinyl Repair Kit to use on the front seats of my 2007 Toyota Avalon. They were really showing their age, especially the drivers seat. I was skeptical about using the product but took the plunge and ordered the kit. What a difference!! They now look like brand new seats. The color match was right on the money. Take your time, follow the instructions and you can’t go wrong. Don’t worry about streaks when the color flex is still wet! I used 3 coats and when it dried the seats looked great. Can’t say enough about the huge difference this product makes. Buy the kit. You won’t regret it.
Tried others and was hesitant to try this one, but I am sure glad I did. Ordered 2 kits, one for a 2008 Dodge Ram in Khaki and one for a 2004 Concorde in Taupe. Best and easiest product EVER. Just make sure you really clean it first with the alcohol and then just smear it on. Wow. A little hole that had just rubbed in to the Ram was covered with a bit of the repair materials and nobody can ell where it was. Best stuff ever. We are thinking of offering this as an extra option in our detail shop.
I own a 2010 Lexus GS 350 with a parchment leather interior. While cleaning a stain from the driver’s seat, I used a leather cleaner without testing first and during a vigorous application ended up removing some of the coloring from the seat. I ordered the parchment leather color from Magic Mender (#2134 – Parchment), applied as directed, and I am pleased to say that the color was a perfect match. I didn’t think the result would be so good. It really seemed like magic!
I have to admit I had my doubts about Magic Mender but I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I can’t even tell where my puppy “accidentally” took a bite out of our leather chair. It was very easy to use and the color matched perfectly! Great product.
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.
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 a wonderful product.
