Customer Questions & Answers

Could I use this on outside furniture?

I have a wood piece that is often outside and quite dry -- with some light sanding would this help to restore the finish? I would rather try this then endless sanding, refinishing and clear coating...
Asked by: Restore
I would just clean the furniture, scrub with steel wool as per the instructions, and apply a few coats of this product. It is fantastic!

Could I use this on a kitchen table that's finish has been damaged by heat?

Asked by: Ashley
It is worth a shot. It took ring marks from water out of the top of my sewing machine cabinet. How bad is the finish?

Home Depot sells an amazing cleaner called Purple Cleaner, I believe. It will get grease off like no other cleaner I have ever used. You will be amazed at your results!

16 oz. Walnut Wood Finish Restorer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Tried an internet solution to a small heat mark on a table. The result was disastrous. You can see the iron shape on the table. Howard's took out almost all of the blemish and a few other problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is AMAZING!!! I used this product on my wood floors and got incredible results. I have now done all floors in my house and done the steps. I live in a 200 year old house with original floors! I followed the simple directions and applied two coats of the product. I even touched up all the furniture that was in the rooms too! If you do not want to sand and strip floors and create all that dust and extra work, this is the product for you! I promise you will love the results! I am including pictures so you can see how amazing this product is! Go buy it, you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from try it before you strip it! I can't say enough about this product--it does exactly what it says it will do. I used it in conjunction with the Feed-N-Wax and my furniture was basically revitalized. I was very skeptical, but the first piece I tried it on was in such sorry shape that I figured that I couldn't make it any worse. Surprisingly, it worked like a charm and now I have beautiful furniture that I don't have to strip and refinish, and the original finish looks better than ever, which is even better! I am so happy that I found this product I am planning on buying the other colors to try on other furniture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional buy! Was skeptical at first but thought I had nothing to lose! So glad I tried it! We're talking bathroom cabinets from a house built in '85. I bought the Walnut coloring. Extremely easy to apply with the 0000 Steel Wool after cleaning first with mineral spirits. Bought the Feed n Wax product also and the cabinets came out beautiful. We don't have the money to replace cabinets so this find is terrific!!!! Any wood furniture, doors and cabinetry in the house will be spruced up within the next few weeks. Couldn't be happier with this product! Don't take my word for it, what do you have to lose?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product If this rating system had provision for ten stars I would rate as such. Being both a woodworker and a skeptic, I had to see to believe. I had three bad white heat/moisture rings on my dining-table top and was prepared for the worst to restore it but within five minutes of application, they were all but gone. Another application will be necessary to completely remove the very faint spot on the worst one. - I also applied a coat to our 50 year old, distressed, fruit-wood finish bedroom set where the finish was actually beginning to turn milky white in many places from dryness and sun damage. My wife wanted to paint it - uh, no. This product restored it to like new almost immediately. Nicest part of all was that a 6-drawer dresser and 5-drawer high-boy took less than 30 minutes and under three ounces to restore and wipe down. This is a ten!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stuff! This stuff is beyond amazing! Our remodel guy recommended it to us to use on the extensive woodwork in our home damaged by our 4 doggies. Wood was completely resurrected, even entire doors. It is truly wipe on, wipe off. We have also used this in investment properties to "re-finish" door and window trim that was beat up and looked as though nothing but complete sanding, staining and clear coat could recover. Color selection is really good - does not have to be a dead-on match to blend in with whatever wood you have. I can't imagine how everyone doesn't know about product. Recommend = yes, yes, yes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It saved my beloved dining room furniture I hate to admit this, but for twenty years I have had a mixture of dogs that often "marked" on my dining room furniture. No matter what I did, I couldn't get them to stop. The legs on all of the chairs, sideboard, table and the bottom of my hutch were ruined and disgusting. Needless to say, the furniture was 100% mahogany and cost a small fortune and I thought I would have to either paint it, refinish it (at an estimated $5,000) or replace the entire set. So I read these reviews and thought "what the heck". This product is would it's weight in gold to me. I cleaned the damaged areas and in some areas, used steel wool. I then applied the Restor-a-Finish and topped it with a coat of the Feed &Wax. And I didn't have to break my arms to apply it...very easy. After it had dried I was absolutely STUNNED that you could not see any damage at all. It left a beautiful satin, hand rubbed finish that blended so well with the rest of the furniture that I couldn't tell any difference at all. I could not have prayed for a better result. And on the upside, the smell is gone and my dogs are no longer marking on the furniture. Try this product. You have nothing to lose.
