I have a "leather like" sofa that has spots where it is peeling away. What can I do to fix it or just prevent it from getting worse?

I feel your pain. I had this, didnt address it and now my couch looks horrible!

I looked here there seems to be a tutorial: www.youtube.com/watch?v=noLvQiT9oZo

and also these guys have this to say: "When fake leather begins to peel and crack, a vinyl and leather repair kit with included tints allows you to make a repair that closely matches the shade of the material." homeguides.sfgate.com/repair-peeling-fake-leather-90830...


Or here: "To properly repair faux leather, you'd begin by applying a repair compound like our FC1 Soft Filler to create a new vinyl-like surface. This creates water repellency and reflects light similarly to the original material. Dyeing the repair is the final step (or perhaps a coat of Clear Prep+Finish for more luster). However, any new coating on an already unstable surface will add more weight, accelerate wear, and ultimately suffer the same fate." www.rubnrestore.com/.../

Amazon has a product called ReStorIt, but it has gotten mixed reviews. www.amazon.com/.../B001E01TPK (Affiliate Link)

Real leather is much easier to fix. If it is a fairly new sofa, I would contact the store or manufacturer.

How did you do it? By hand? Chemically? This chair is so comfortable my Honey loves it, but I can't afford no expensive repair kit.
