Cotton swab or cotton pad
Plastic wrap (optional, for adding texture to the repair)
Cleaning the Area
- Clean the area around the stain on your leather sofa cushion 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 stain on your leather sofa cushion.
- 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 sofa cushion.
- Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area.
- Once the repair compound is semi-dry, 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. Adding texture will help the repaired section to blend with the rest of the leather.
- After the repair compound has dried, use a cotton pad or cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges of the repair on your leather sofa cushion.
- Wipe your sofa cushion down with a damp cloth or leather cleaner every few weeks to remove dust and dirt.
- Use a leather conditioner to nourish the leather and restore its natural shine.
- Avoid spilling liquids or exposing it to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
- If the cushion is removable, consider flipping it or rotating it to ensure even wear.
- Consider using a water-resistant or stain-resistant spray to prevent future stains.

BEST PRODUCT EVER!!!
"My leather couch had a big orangestainright in the middle sit. It also had some small spots all over. I love the couch but that big orange spot was way to evident and I hate it. I got the brown professional leather and vinyl repair kit from Coconix. Was very cheap and I wasn't sure if it will work. OM! it works amazingly good. I was able to cover the big orangestainand all the other little ones with just one package. It looks like brand new. If I can, I will give it 10 starts!!!!"
