Cotton swab or cotton pad
Plastic wrap (optional, for adding texture to the repair)
Cleaning the Area
- Clean the area around the scuffs on your leather recliner with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab
- Make sure to test it on a hidden area first. If alcohol is harsh for your material, you may use warm, soapy water or your usual leather or vinyl cleaner
Mixing the Repair Compound
- If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided
Applying the Repair Compound
- Apply the repair compound to the damaged area on your leather recliner
- Start by applying it under and along the edges and work from the outside toward the center
- Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups
Drying and Additional Layers
- Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch on your leather recliner
- Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area
- To add texture to your repair finish, tear off a slightly larger piece of plastic wrap
- Press it against the semi-dry final layer of the repair compound
- When you lift your hand off, the area will be slightly textured
- Repeat this process until you’ve achieved the desired texture on your leather recliner
- Once the repair compound is completely dry, use a cotton pad or cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges of the repaired area.
- This will ensure a smooth and seamless finish.
- Wipe your recliner down with a damp cloth or leather cleaner every few weeks to remove dust and dirt.
- Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
- Use a leather conditioner to nourish the leather and restore its natural shine.
- Keep sharp objects away from the recliner to prevent any new scuffs or scratches from forming.
- Regularly inspect the recliner for any wear or tear and address any issues promptly to ensure its longevity.
