Does the product work on oak floors?

January 16, 2016
I have 20 year old Bruce pre finished 3/4 inch thick oak hardwood floors that the finish in high traffic areas is showing wear. Will Testore a Finish work on floors? I have used the Restore a Finish product successfully on wood furniture, both vintage and antique. If the product improves the finish, is there a urathane, polyurethane or other product that can be used over the Restor a Finish product to protect the restored finish? Thank you

16 oz. Golden Oak Wood Finish Restorer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product to refinish kitchen cabinets We have 25 year old oak cabinets in our kitchen and the ones under the sink had water stains causing the clear finish to whiten. We tried other similar products and were about to strip the doors completely when a friend recommended the Howard Restor-a-Finish product. I can't say enough about the product regarding the restoration of the woodwork on both the doors and the frames of the cabinets. The dull white streaks are gone and after applying their wax product the doors look brand new. It's not back breaking or difficult, you simply wipe on the finish with steel wool and then wipe it with a dry rag. Wait 20 minutes and put the wax finish on, wait 20 minutes and wipe it off with a clean dry rag -- that's it! If you have water stains on your cabinets or vanities, I highly recommend this product. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stuff Really Works! I have a 20+ year old oak table that was marred by white heat marks, etc. I thought I had no option but to refinish it. While looking for products to do so, I saw this. Although skeptical, I thought I had nothing to lose since I planned to refinish the table anyway. I applied according to directions, with fine steel wool. Within minutes, the finish was restored. I topped it off with a coat of Howard's Feed-N-Wax, and the table looks almost new. The heat marks are gone. Sure beats a total refinish job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Product I just used this (light oak) on my 20 year old Merolat cabinets in the kitchen. I didn't used the steel wool, just an old washcloth to put it on with some rubber gloves on. It took me about 30 minutes to apply and wipe off the excess. The cabinets now look 10 years younger, I will apply the wax next weekend for a protective shine. This is a great product and I have used it before on an old china cabinet to spruce it up, just wipe on and wipe off. I am sure if I used steel wool it would even look better, but hey, I am happy as it is doing it the lazy and simple way, great stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for Some Jobs, Not Others I got two very different results on two different jobs. On a coffee table that had a very "hard" finish, but by no means sealed, the product didn't sink in very well and didn't accomplish much. On my kitchen cabinets that had more open pore wood, the results were much better. The product sunk in and cabinets that I was thinking of painting or replacing now look excellent. In retrospect maybe it's just common sense, the wood you are treating has to be able to absorb the product to work well. BTW my 8 oz. container did both jobs, with some left over. I did the cabinets about 10 years after the table and the product was still in great shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save me a bunch of $$ & work I love this product! My kitchen oak cabinets looked really worn and had some water damage on the doors below the sink. I wasn't sure if this product would work but decided to try it. I’m so glad I did. They look so much better and now I don't have to paint or replace them. This product is very easy to use. I don't think it will hide large stains but it took care of scratches and small imperfections. Wish I took a before & after photo of them because I still can't believe how good they turned out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! I wanted to repair oak bathroom cabinets that had slight water damage. I didn't want to strip or refinish the wood and found this product at Home Depot. I used very fine steel wool, applied the restorer, then to preserve the wood, followed with the companion product - Howard Feed-N-Wax. Followed all directions. The results were amazing.... the cabinets looked new. I have also used the restorer on oak woodwork trim that had been scratched or nicked over the years. Worked just great. I am recommending this product to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Our 20 year old cabinets, showed what you would have expected normal wear, a little water damage here and there. Everything you would expect from a family over 20 years. I took my time, washed the cabinets off to remove any greese. Then used 0000 steel wool to apply the Howards product. In the water stained areas next to the dishwasher, I applied the product liberaly allowed it to soak in. Then did the same to all the cabinets. Gave everything a few hours to dry, and applied the feed an wax treatment. Great products. look like new cabinets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pluses & Minuses This product really does improve a worn finish including the white rings that often show up on shellaced wood. However if you intend to later fully refinish the piece be warned that in places where the old finish was scratched the Restor-a-finish will soak into the wood and darken it significantly. Then the scratches are very dark and can't be lightened to match the rest of the piece when you do the refinish.
