Then you will love what I found!

The product is called Quick Shine Floor Finish by Holloway House  and it is awesome! It has received the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice label. Safe for your family, children and pets.

Here is what my kitchen floor looked like before. This is after I moped, yikes.  See how dull and dirty they still looked.  The floors really do need to be refinished but I’m just not up for the fumes and havoc right now.

Update 2022: We had our hardwood floors refinished and they look amazing.

The Quick Shine Floor Finish is applied to a clean, dry floor with a damp sponge mop.  Just squirt right out of the bottle on to the floor.  That’s ALL…It is that easy!

In the picture below you can see where I started from the door and worked toward the table.  I stopped to show you the difference with just one coat of Quick Shine.  You can do more than one coat, just let it dry in between applications, approximately 30 minutes.

FYI…Be sure to sit the bottle of Quick Shine on a paper plate or towel! OR you might end up with a few shiny spots on your painted TV cabinet that you didn’t want shiny!

  2. Sonya, I LOVE this stuff! We used it on my father-in-law’s 60+ year old floors and they looked like new. Had to go back and buy several more bottles just so we won’t be without 🙂

  3. Wait–you mop??………HA!….just kidding……

    With 3 little ones, I struggle to get time to MOP, much less SHINE! But, after seeing these pics, I’m inspired to be a better mom and homemaker. LOL 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  6. It really does work great! It also has a nice clean feeling on bare feet. Thank you so much for your kind comments! ~Sonya

  7. OMWord. I am getting some of that TODAY. I found a Pledge product that put a beautiful shine on my wood floors and when the squirt bottle ran out I could never find it again. Either they changed it or discontinued it because what they sell now just isn’t doing it. And I love that this product is friendly. The difference in the shine on your floors is amazing. Beautiful. Thanks for the tip!

  8. I hate carpet in my main living spaces but I have to say I do like it in my bedrooms! AND the carpet I do have needs cleaning really bad…maybe I should find a product for that 🙂
