Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigDog Read the Directions- Great Polish but it IS High Gloss Polish
Like most who do research I look for "detailed" information, not just Great-Fabulous, etc. I have seen some blogs and other review sites that have mixed reviews on this product and sometimes lump all the BONA into the same category, i.e. cleaner,applicator and the POLISH. This review is for the
High Gloss Hardwood Floor Polish. I cannot speak for the low sheen Polish and have, frankly, seen worse reviews for the low sheen.
OK, the directions says CLEAN the floor first! Duh? I see many 1 star reviews that say "the floor streaks, the hair from my dog gets stuck, etc. It has to be clean first and BONA's Hardwood floor cleaner does a very good job. So use it!
I found using a normal Grime Boss, Swifter or similar "soft pad" works great at the application of the polish and you have to use generous amounts to keep "the pad wet", as the directions say, and just glide the polish on. Don't rub,scrub,- Just apply a very light pressure. It will "flow on". It may , after the hour plus, need a touch up and you can easily see where the missed spots are as the shine is quite dramatic. If you live in a wet, humid climate, let it dry longer. The person who said her dog left paw prints after 4 hours?? Maybe it was not dry as you live in Alabama and it was humid. Let it dry overnight if unsure. I found in Western coastal WA state ( rainy), with the heat set at 65 degrees, it dried in hour.
I used this on a new engineered hardwood floor and cannot speak for older worn floors, but most reviewers say it works great. I will see how ,long the shine last and report back. Yes it is a little pricey and yes the bottle leaks from the lid. It works well, smells nice and has a great shine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndyG Fantastic Product .. Floors look & feel amazing!
We have handscraped pre-finished hardwood floors. Being that they are hand-scraped, they look great, but are very prone to collecting dirt/dust and also very difficult to clean. Once cleaned, they only stay that way for a few days, so I was looking for a product to lengthen the time between cleanings.
Well I've found it! This polish basically applies some sort of magical layer on top of the hardwood, causing dirt and dust to avoid sticking to it. It's not a permanent solution, but it's better than the once-a-week cleanings that I had to do before, consuming hours of time.
It also feels great on your feet, knowing that the surface is so clean and consistent. I am still getting comments on how great it feels to walk on!
It's a relief knowing I can drop by Home Depot to grab more of this polish when I need it.

Bona products many not be inexpensive, but they work and work well. I have 18 year old hard wood floors. I used Bona cleaner followed by the polish and they look great again. Tried other products in the past that not only did not do the job, but in some instanced they actually damaged the floor. Bona came to the rescue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary Bona Polish is the Bomb!
I was truly impressed by this products performance. I am always in search for the "best" product. I find the outside advertising on product labels promise the world, but do not always deliver. I can say that the Bona high gloss delivered the job and so much more! My floors were left with a new floor look, beautiful shine, dried nicely and were not sticky. This is the bomb floor polish!!!

This is one of those products that just makes me satisfied I found it. I'm so far from being an expert on how to properly take care of floors, but Bona is so easy to use it's no problem. After cleaning the floor, you just squirt some on and spread it over evenly with some kind of cloth mop. I just double up on the pads that go on the Swiffer Sweeper and use those and throw away after. My floor now instantly has a shiny finish that lasts! And it doesn't have any noticeable smell while using, it does seem non-toxic and gentle. I love it and like other reviewers, have had guests comment on how shiny and nice my floor looks, even weeks after using.

I purchased this product after watching youtube videos on the best way to clean your hardwood floors. My floors were dingy, dirty and barely had any shine to them. The cleaner worked extremely well with removing all the the dirt and grime. When it came to the polisher, I was AMAZED at how well this stuff works. It was UNBELIEVABLE the shine it brought back to my floors after only 1 application! It goes on super easy, a little goes a long way, and it doesn't leave a sticky feeling! GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

I use this product once a month after using Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner. This product puts a shine on the floors and makes them look brand new. I will continue to use their product as long as I have hardwood floors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrea Wonderful product!
My husband (a professional finish carpenter) came home with this product yesterday. I was skeptical, to say the least. Our floors need to be refinished, but at a cost of nearly $10,000 to do over 3500 sq. ft., it's not an option right now. Bona took off a good 4-5 years worth of abuse from 4 kids and 2 dogs. I can't wait to see how the floors look after a second coat! Highly recommend for anyone looking to freshen up older oak floors.
