BONA- MY FRIEND-A
Our older oak hardwoods used to drive me crazy, crazy, crazy, that is until I tried BONA.
Why I’d never tried BONA is a mystery to me, but when a visiting friend raved about BONA, I found it at Home Depot right where I should have seen it. I bought it and have used it for over a year now; it works great, especially in the sequence I have developed for dealing with our major floor challenge- our dog!
Our 100 pound Golden Labrador, Harry, though kept clean, is the primary reason our hardwoods get dirtier than normal. Dirt from his feet, slobber from his drooling and whatever else falls off Harry’s coat tends to get ground into the hardwood surface. In light of these challenges cleaning our 18-year-old hardwoods was a chore before BONA.
My recipe for cleaning the hardwoods begins with a thorough vacuuming of the hardwoods. Step two is using a mild liquid wood detergent, diluted and worked with a floor mop over the severest dirt and, pardon the expression, slobber. Everyone’s floor is different, and if you don’t have a big dog in your home, you might easily skip this step. After the wood is dry, I crank up my mopping with BONA. Using a large soft dry mop, I spray BONA from the bottle directly onto the floor and then mop away! This picks up dirt which the mild detergent application didn’t get, and thanks to BONA, the floor gets super clean! Drying takes no time at all, and the result is a floor that has a satin finish that’s also not slippery.
It’s a once a week process around here, and I always do it in conjunction with my husband who does the vacuuming. Share the chores, share the wine, I always say! Harry enjoys the clean floor, too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Puddmuff Bona is the best!
When we had our Bellawood installed I tried several cleaners that were recommended, one being Bruce. All of them left a haze and streaks on the floor. My Home Depot recommended Bona and I decided to give it a try. WOW what a difference, never hazy or left a streak. Highly recommend their product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crazy Bill Have used this product for over two years and never had a problem. Started using it to clean up after the puppies were let out of the pen. Noticed the dogs licking the floor, and a few days later they became sick. No information in the MSDS if it could be harmful to pets.

I have been using Bona for years, in 3 different homes - when there was only a single product. On my 3rd home, there is a whitish residue not overall, but in a few small spots. I can't figure out why it's only in small areas & not all over. I apply on a cleaned floor. Help please! Love how the floors look.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by annie Hardwood floors look dull after cleaning.
I bought this product (and the applicator that is sold with it in some packaging) because it is highly advertised. It seems to have cleaned the floor but left it looking dull. Now I need to apply another finish to restore the shine - neither the Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner nor the Bona website mentioned that would be necessary. Bottom line: This product is meant solely to clean; do not expect your floor to look clean AND shiny.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sonnyroy why dull floors
Read the instructions for those of you who complained about the cleaner leaving a dull finish!! Bona makes finishes that is recommended to be applied after the floor is cleaned. Using this cleaner, then a finish, whether it be dull or shiny results in a beautiful and durable finish. I've used both and am completely satisfied with the results...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whiteblaze Very good product
The problem with this product is that Home Depot carries the mop applicator but does not carry any additional replacement Microfiber cleaning pads, Microfiber Dusting Pads or the wax applicator pads. I searched three stores. I eventually had to go your big box competitor and magically they seemed to be well stocked in the Bona product line. So I bought all the additional supplies I needed there. Since I have a lot of wood floors, I needed extra ones just to go through the house once. Get it!
Otherwise, the Bona product line is very good. Follow the instructions and the result is perfect. Your sales associates directed me to this product.
