Do not use Old English on your hardwood floors, this is an oily product, it great on wood furniture but I wouldn’t recommend putting it on your whole floor.
it might work to fill a scratch but I don’t recommend it simple because It will not be able to withstand wear, pressure or damage, why? Because it wasn’t designed to work on the floor
Old English doesn’t work with any type of hardwood floor, it doesn’t matter if you have light or dark hardwood floors, “don’t use it please”…
What do I recommend instead?
You need to get the Rejuvenate All Floors Restorer simple because it was made and designed for hardwood floor.
Rejuvenate will restore and fill scratches and there is no sanding required… by far the best way to fill in those annoying visible scratches on your expensive floors.
18 reasons to not use Old English on your hardwood floor
- The Old English manufacture themselves have said that, they do not recommend using it on floors
- It is an oily product, only use it on furniture because it may ruin the floor finish
- It will make your floors slippery, not safe for homes with kids or pets
- It was only designed for kitchen cabinet, wood furniture or wood paneling, it definitely works on wood furniture but that doesn’t mean it suitable for wood floors
- It not a good product for laminate or hardwood floor, why? Because I’ve tried it on my colored engineered hardwood floor and it reveals a lighter wood color, based on my own personal experience it not a good product for hardwood floor or laminate floor
- It not durable for your wood floor, once you use it on your dark hardwood floor, you will need to constantly use it over and over to ensure that your floors look bright, which will cause a lot of issues in the long run
- You use it once, you will have to use it again and again, it won’t remain the same, it will require excessive maintenance, why? Because people will constantly walk over it
- It only works for small scratches, if you have large scratches on your hardwood floor than this is worthless, it will ruin the look of your floors, the hardwood floor will absorb the oil and the floor will look completely discolored
- It not suitable on both light and dark hardwood floors, it will definitely cover the scratches but it will also darken your floor
- I don’t recommend it to people who hate strong cleaners or polish with a strong smell because this also has a super strong smell like varnish *it smells awful*
- If you want to use it on big dents than it will absolutely do nothing, it will basically polish the floor and not fill in dents
- It will fill in groves with black mark, but it won’t make your floor look any better, trust me, I’ve tried it.
- It totally useless for hiding floor scratches, it does fill in deep ones since that cannot be fix but the stain is too weak to darken surface scratches especially if you are trying to use on high traffic areas
- Poor advertisement, they don’t ell you that it wasn’t made for hardwood floors, they only tell you that it best for getting rid of wood scratches…
- If your hardwood floor has scratches and dents, applying old English won’t solve your problem, it oily and messy no matter how neat you are
- The only thing that it will do is, it will make your undamaged hardwood floor look polished instead of getting rid of the dents
- This is what I hated the most when I used old English on my floor, it remained sticky for quite some time
- It a waste of money and time when trying to use in on the floor, if your hardwood floor has finish, it will only look like you just rubbed Vaseline on the scratch of your floor which will leave that specific area a lot glossy
Why I’m against using old English on wood floor?
Because after using it, I felt like I was ripped off, it absolutely did not do anything for my hardwood floor scratches, I bought it after I saw some pictures online and was kinda impressed but absolutely did nothing on my floors.
It not a rip off though simple because I contacted the manufacture and they told me that it wasn’t made for floors… it works on wood furniture but wood floor. Let that sink in.
