When we first moved into our house nine years ago we had all the floors sanded and refinished. The floor refinishers were only able to get one coat of varnish on because we had a very short window between closing on the house and moving in. We've tried not to be too hard on the floors, but over the years the floors have definitely dulled.
I hate dull. I like shiny! Shiny lip gloss, shiny mirrors and shiny floors.
I spent most of the winter plotting against the floors. White floors work fine upstairs where there is little foot traffic. Downstairs white floors would be dirty all the time and I would have a housewife breakdown. Refinishing them would be both too expensive and unfeasible. Getting all of the people, furniture and animals out of the house long enough to get the floors done would be a logistical nightmare.
I was left with whatever I could find at the Market Basket that promised "shiny". I was skeptical that floor salvation could be found in the crowded cleaning supplies aisle of the Market Basket, but I gave it a shot anyway. I purchased Holloway House Quick Shine Floor Finish (5.99).
People, this stuff in amazing. No one is paying me to say these things. This is completely unsolicited adulation. I used two coats on the floor. Each coat dried in about twenty minutes.
What I saw before my eyes was spectacular! My floors looked brand new! So shiny! So glossy! I called the children down to see and they too sung its praises! Even my husband noticed!
So there you have it. Floor salvation can be found at the Market Basket for 5.99.
Wonders never cease.
