Initially, when I applied the product I was in total disbelief! It was amazing. My seat cushions are very warn, my Great Dane loves to lay on the sofa, and for several years before her, the favorite spot of my Doberman. Lots of claw marks, and the finish is warn off. After the product penetrated, and I removed the excess, the warn areas looked better, but not like the initial wow. I will reapply Leather Honey to that area again, and see if it improves more. I was so encouraged, I lathered up a worn pair or two of boots and the clogs I wear for work….. Amazing. I have already shown the photos to my dog-people friends and they are amazed! I have plans to treat a few other boots a s handbags…..
