Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit

Rubbing alcohol or leather/vinyl cleaner

Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)

Cotton swab or cotton pad

Plastic wrap (optional, for adding texture to the repair)

Step 1

Preparing the Damaged Area

  • Carefully trim any excess threads and jagged bits from the peeling on your faux leather sofa.

Step 2

Cleaning the Area

  • Clean the area around the peeling on your faux leather sofa 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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the damaged area on your faux leather sofa.
  • 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.

Step 5

Drying and Additional Layers

  • Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch on your faux leather sofa.
  • Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area.

Step 6

Adding Texture

  • 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 faux leather sofa.

Step 7

Finishing Up

  • 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.

Step 8


  • To ensure the longevity of your repair, it's important to properly maintain your faux leather sofa.
  • This includes regularly cleaning the surface with a mild cleaner specifically designed for faux leather, and avoiding placing the sofa in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as this can cause the material to dry out and crack.
  • Additionally, avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning products, as these can damage the repair and the surrounding material.

And there you have it! Your faux leather sofa is now looking as good as new. Remember to take your time, and don't hesitate to ask for help if needed. Happy furniture repairing! And don't forget to show off your newly repaired sofa to all your friends and family, they will be impressed with your new skills!

Highly recommend!!!

“This product works very well! As you can see from the photos my couch was peeling pretty bad. It took me a bit to get the color match I was satisfied with but I am very happy with the finished product. I used a disposable glove to spread it on because the area was too large to use the tool that it came with. It was so easy to use and dried quickly! This product is great but but in my opinion the level of customer service is just as important. This company responded quickly to every one of my emails and went above and beyond to ensure I was successful Thank you so much!.”
