It - Don't Strip It!"
How does it work?
Restor-A-Finish® is a unique finish-penetrating formula that restores
the original color and luster to your finish while blending out
the blemishes and minor scratches. Restor-A-Finish cleans the
surface and restores the finish in one step - without removing
any of the existing finish.
Restor-A-Finish® is available in nine colors:
Neutral - for all light wood shades & natural floors
Maple-Pine - for all light orange-brown shades
Golden Oak - for all golden yellow shades & oak floors
Cherry - for all light orange-red shades
Walnut - for all medium brown shades
Mahogany - for all the reddish shades
Dark Walnut - for all reddish-brown shades
Dark Oak - for all brown shades
Ebony Brown - for all dark shades
What to do...
Restor-A-Finish® works best when applied with a small pad of toweling, or for severe white rings and crazing, with Super Fine(0000) steel wool. DO NOT pour directly on the finish. When using steel wool, always rub with the grain of the wood. First, determine the pressure you should use on an inconspicuous spot, as the hardness of finishes vary.
Restor-A-Finish® has saved many hours of labor by chemically cleaning and restoring the finish on carved portions of furniture and clocks. Simply apply Restor-A-Finish® with a small paint brush or soft tooth brush and wipe off.
With a simple wipe-on, wipe-off process, most finished wood surfaces that seem to need a refinishing job can be completely restored in a few minutes. White heat rings and water marks, sun fade, oxidation, smoke damage, and most other blemishes can be quickly eliminated. Before you go to the extreme of stripping it, try restoring it! * Remember, DO NOT apply Restor-A-Finish® to the new imitation wood finishes or use it under polyurethane finishes as a stain!
White Heat Rings and Water and Smoke Damage - Apply Restor-A-Finish (see above) with steel wool and rub hard enough with the grain of the wood to blend out the white effect. If high gloss finish should appear dull due to the use of steel wool, polish it out with a commercial polishing compound.
Raised and Blistered Finishes - Apply Neutral Restor-A-Finish (to prevent darkening of wood beyond temporary "wet effect") with steel wool. As blisters soften press down while the Restor-A-Finish is applied. Wipe dry, and wipe dry again later if the surface "blooms" with excess Restor-A-Finish.
Revive Wood Finishes - Wipe on the appropriate color of Restor-A-Finish with a clean cloth. Let it stand for a few minutes then wipe dry. If you desire a darker shade, simply apply a darker color of Restor-A-Finish.
Restore Minor Crazed or Checked Finishes - Apply Restor-A-Finish with Medium Grade(00) steel wool. Rub hard enough to smooth out the finish, periodically checking your progress. Checked or crazed surfaces may absorb an excess of Restor-A-Finish and "bloom out" requiring another wiping later.
Treat Carved Wood - Restor-A-Finish has saved many hours of labor by chemically cleaning and restoring the finish on carved portions of furniture and clocks. Simply apply Restor-A-Finish with a small paint brush or soft tooth brush and wipe off.
Tips - Be careful to protect fabric, carpets, and linoleum when applying Restor-A-Finish. It may leave a permanent stain. If spilling occurs, immediately scrub areas with straight liquid detergent or stain remover and wipe dry. Be sure to cover a small area at a time when applying Restor-A-Finish. Always wipe dry.
