Nail Polish Remover on Leather

I used nail polish remover to remove paint from my brown leather sofa. It took the paint off, but also the color. Any ideas on what I can use to put some color back in? I already tried shoe polish and it did not work. Thanks for your help.

I used paste shoe polish on my dark brown leather furniture and it covered a spot nicely. Also, they make leather dye for home use. Check with a good leather furniture store.

To do it right, contact a shoe or saddle repair shop, as they will have actual leather dye and can help you put it back correctly. Or a Tandy Leather Store, and it will probably be a two step finish to restore both the color and the shine. Good Luck!

The sofa manufacturer may have a dye you can buy for a perfect match, call them and explain. After this it is a good idea to call them BEFORE attempting to remove any stains, things like this can void the warranty. Good luck.

I just used an instant black polish. I reckon I'm lucky as mine is black, and black is pretty much 'black', some people might struggle with brown and tan shades of sofa. Anyway it worked a treat and I've gone round covering up every little scratch and it looks great!

So, my best friend spilled an entire bottle of acetone on my black leather purse (brand new!!!) I rinsed it immediately with mild soap and water, but the dye was already gone. Now I'm left with white streaks all over the purse.

Where would I get the stuff you used?
