A Quick Fix For a Worn Floor



I can’t blame Daisy alone for our worn bedroom floor. As you can see, we get a lot of sunlight and even some moisture around our exterior bedroom door. The door (not Daisy!) is on our list to be replaced, so I did not want to do a complete floor refinishing now. The wood did however, need something to make it look better — and to provide it with some real protection.


Instead of stripping, sanding, and refinishing the oak boards, I opted for an easier and faster route. First, I swept up the dirt (along with a few dog hairs), then cleaned the floor with Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner.


Within minutes, the floor was dry, so I then squirted on the water-based clear finish called Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver. Unlike polishes that quickly evaporate, Hardwood Floor Reviver is an actual floor finish that dries, hardens and provides a thin layer of protection.


My mop quickly spread an even coat of Reviver across the floor. As you can see, the difference is amazing.


Since Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver is water-based, I did not have to worry about any fumes. And it dried so fast that Daisy never even realized what I had done before coming back to take her afternoon nap.
