Essentials Leather Repair Kit Instructions

To achieve a successful repair, use the table below to establish which fault description best matches your leather damage and follow the steps in numerical order that follow. Always start with step 1 1,2.

Example for scratches: Step 1 Prep Wash, Step 2 Bond, Step 3 Filler, Step 4 Sand, Step 5 Wipe Clean and Step 6 Colourant.

Fault
Scratches Cut/Tear Hole/Burn Graze Worn/Faded Nick Stains
Prep Wash 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
Trim Area 2 2 2
Sand 4 7 7 5 2 4 2
Bond 2 5 5 3 2
Sub Patch 4 4
Filler 3 6 6 4 3 1
Wipe Clean 5 3+8 3+8 6 3 5 3
Colourant 6 9 9 7 4 6 4

Step 1 – Prep Wash

Spray over & around the repair area and wipe away and dirt, oils and contaminants with the lint free cloth, then allow to try.

Step 2 – Trim

Remove any frayed, loose or unwanted fibres. For burns, cut away the burnt leather to leave clean edges.

Step 3 – Sand

Using the 600 grade grit paper, gently sand the repair area to remove any rough spots or to level any filler used.

Step 4 – Bond

Ensure the surfaces are dry. Apply glue to all surfaces and bring them together. Hold the surfaces together until the glue has set. Using a hairdryer will help speed up the process. Before carrying out the next step, the glue must be left for a minimum of 24 hours to achieve the maximum hold.

Step 5 – Sub Patch

Trim the patch to approximately 20% bigger than the damaged area. Using the tweezers, slide the patch into position behind the hole and apply glue to one side of the sub-patch and the back side of the leather. Using the palette knife to assist with this and bring the two surfaces together. Repeat until all surfaces are touching and allow to set. Using a hairdryer will help speed up the process.

Step 5 – Filler

Using the palette knife, apply thin layers of filler (removing excess between each layer) and allow to fully dry between layers. Once each layer is dry, sand if required. Use a hairdryer to speed up the drying process.

Tip – leather colourant can be added to wet filler to tint the filler colour, achieving a closer shade to the leather colour. Place a small amount of filler in the mixing cup and add a few drops of tinter until the desired colour is achieved.

Step 6 – Wipe Clean

Dampen the lint free cloth with water and wipe over & around the repair area.

Step 7 – Colourant

If required and once colour match has been achieved using our tints, use either a cotton tip or the touch up sponge to dab, wipe or brush the colourant in thin even coats, and fully dry in between each coat. Use a hairdryer to speed up the process.

Tip – feather the repair outwards during application as a final step and gently massage the area to relax the surface and blend in.

You must allow at least 14 days before using any cleaning or moisturiser products. Also note you may experience slight colour bleed on the cloth when cleaning or moisturising. This is normal and can be expected for the first 2 or 3 uses.

Leather Tint process – If required, add the required tinters in very small quantities. Test and dry the colourant between each additional tint until the required colour match is achieved. Please note the colourant will dry darker. For lighter colours, always add darker tints in very small quantities.

Sofa Rehab will supply 5ml, 15ml or 30ml tint (depending on size of kit) of each colourant used to produce the base colour.

Video tutorials can be found on the Sofa Rehab YouTube channel or for any technical support, call 07 2111 4088.

  1. Before commencing any repair, always pre-test the products in an inconspicuous area.
  2. Please note any use of our products will only be successful on a real leather or vinyl surface that is in fair/good condition, clean and free from contaminant such as oils, dirt and grime.

    Was unsure if I was wasting my money but took the plunge and wow am I pleased I did. My leather chair looks so good and the color match was so close. Top marks

  • Robert Burrough

    I was doubtful this would repair our badly damaged headrest area of our leather lounge. But, I thought I had nothing to loose so I gave it a try.
    I cut a tiny sample of our leather away from underneath the recliner where that cannot be seen & sent that to Sofa Rehab to hopefully match our colour.
    I’ve just completed the repair & colour now. The colour match is perfect & now I cannot see where the damage was. Marvellous product. Thank you.

  • Patricia Gordon

    Very good communication by the supplier prior and until I received the kit. I am very happy, I thought that I might need to get new squabs for my couch, but the repair kit has worked perfectly. Such a surprise, so thank you for your innovation.

  • Nelly Pashayan

    Great service, fast delivery, good product, I did not even use the glue and my dining chairs look as new, just filler and the colour worked great. I loved the fact that you have enclosed blue and green colours with the repair kit. It came really handy in getting the tint colour right. I would never think of it myself, Thanks you

  • Genevieve Neale

    (verified owner)

    If I could attach my before/after phtotos I would, because I am so pleased with the results of the repair. The service was marvellous, providing the free samples and later delivery was quick. Advise was excellent – they weren’t going to sell me anything when I sent photos of the damage their technician deemed irreparable. I did however used the kit to repair bits that I could using the sub patch and filler and then together with another patch product, everything was blended in with the colourant (with minor adjustment with the tints). The repair looks so much better than I hoped – almost professional – if I may say so myself.

  • Fibi

    Very good products saved my couch fr the dumpster damage from spilt nai polish. Blend in with the in nail polish leaving no sign of nail polish and no wash off when the dyed section is cleaned. Truly awesome

  • Ritchie

    (verified owner)

    This product is wonderful and does the job quite well. Instructions are easy to follow and the video tutorials are also very helpful. Used it to repair my bonded leather office chair which was peeling quite extensively. Results are good but not perfect as I find the filler dries on quite thick, and you end up being able to actually feel the difference between the original and repaired sections. Probably better suited to real leather but then again maybe I applied too much filler. So only 4 stars but still I’m happy in the end. Maybe you could also develop a sealant product of some sort that would stop further peeling and cracking of bonded leather? Just a suggestion.

  • Rhonda

    This was very easy to use. Loved the end result. The video was most useful in get the finish correct. We had to deal with well worn arm rests which included a split. The chair now looks great again.

    Wow! I am so impressed with the sofa repair kit. I have just finished repairing my recliner/rocker armchair. If you follow the instructions you can make your damaged leather look as good as new. My cats made a terrible mess of the front sides of my chair but now it looks like new. I was surprised at how little of the product is needed. I will have enough to do the other armchair and the couch. It’s not often you come across a product that does exactly what the supplier claims but this is one of those products. I am very happy with my purchase!

  • LesleyRaeOrr

    After 2 years of periodic touch ups of one squab with colour refresher I used (some of) a small Essentials Leather Repair kit and achieved great finish. The leather prep wash, leather filler and 600 grit sandpaper have improved the only noticeably worn squab so much it looks like the
    remaining 4 squabs. No more flaky, cracks and dry scratchy feel on the leather now. After 6 thin coats of leather colourant the feel and colour of the most damaged squab is so good it’s indiscernable from the rest of the lounge.

  • Nick Mandikos

    I bought a black and a Deep blue colorant as well as 2 x essentials Leather repair kits for the grand total of approx $180. as opposed to a quote from a “leather doctor” for $3800. The kit did a great job. the repairs were easy to carry out, and the colour match was perfect. Its good to have my furniture back in its original condition for that price. I’m extatic. Thank you Sofa Rehab,
    and 5 stars to you.

It does work very successfully on the following leather types
Pigmented/protected leather (most common leather found on furniture and car seats and door trims interiors)

It is not ideal for use on the following leather due to the colourant being a pigment (solid colour) and not a transparent dye. The products still repair the leather however the colourant will appear as a paint and not a dye on the surface, if you need to just secure the damage and stop it getting worse then this is an option
Aniline, waxed or oiled pull up

And not suitable for use on the following
Nubuck or Suede
Plastic or fabric
