today we’re going to demonstrate the many versatile uses of black Rub ‘n Restore®. so I’ve already removed the pressure seal and thoroughly stirred it. I’ve got my cellulose sponge here. you can see there’s no green scrubby on the back, and to create an easier sponge to use i’m going to cut it diagonally which creates these wonderful sculpted edges that can make your your project a lot easier to work with. so putting on my glove. I’m right-handed, so I should probably just stick with that, eh? and we’re going to work today on this bumper. this is in my car and our service vehicle, and it’s got a lot of Rub ‘n Restore® stains on it that I didn’t get to very quickly and what better way to fix them in with some more Rub ‘n Restore®! now with any sort of color change, which is, you know, we’re trying to cover those spots, will probably take a couple of coats and want to thoroughly dry each one in between. now with plastics, which is usually what you’ll see on exteriors of vehicles, we would recommend a plastic primer for really good longevity. not all plastics are the same, so it’s kind of a crapshoot you know, if you have to use a plastic primer or not, but we recommend it as a disclaimer. this product also works really well on rubber. rubber is more porous and permeable than plastic and that’s why this product also works well on leather and vinyl because, those materials are very porous and permeable. you can see how great, you know, this plastic is different than this plastic. but already we’ve we’ve accomplished a vast improvement. just a few more layers. you want to avoid applying this product in direct sunlight because this surface will be hot and the product will dye, or I’m sorry, dry. the dye will dry very quickly, and you won’t be able to polish out your streaks and get a nice even finish like this. so my second demonstration will be my shoes. these are my favorite shoes they have at least a hundred thousand miles on them and probably about 30 coats of Rub ‘n Restore® over the years. oops, dripped on my bumper. we don’t recommend a dramatic color change on shoes just because shoes take so much use and abuse and encounter water and dirt and that sort of thing, and if you do a color change you’ll constantly be touching them up and the color will tend to flake off in the creases where your where your foot bends, but if you’re working in the same color family this is a great product. it’s like shoe polish on steroids. it’s much, much better for a leather or vinyl, not for nubuck or fabric or you know like your converse. those are those are like a canvas. you wouldn’t want to use that, this product on those. so you can see that I’ve dyed my bumper, I’ve dyed my shoes, and I’m gonna get a little wacky here, hold on to your hats boys and girls I’m getting my paintbrush and a purse that was destined for the donate pile and i’m just going to get a little wacky now of course you wouldn’t be doing this on your purse but the purpose is made, the point is demonstrated that you could do polka dots or your initials or patterns and filigree on any leather or vinyl surface, be it your jacket, your sofa, your bumper. I mean if you want to do it, you can do it ,and if you don’t like it, get on it right away with some, preferably before it’d dry, but you can even scrub it out if it’s dry sometimes, and strip it out. and bear in mind if you’re going to do patterns like that especially on a surface like a purse or a pair of shoes that take a lot of use and abuse and where and flex that you will probably have to touch it up so don’t get too complicated with it. so thank you!
