Rejuvenate Floor Restorer And Floor Cleaner Review - Love The Cleaner But Not The Restorer

by Heather
(Tampa, FL)

Heather has shared her Rejuvenate floor restorer and Rejuvenate floor cleaner review.

Heather says:

When I saw the Rejuvenate advertisement on television it sounded too good to be true. Could I really clean and restore my aging and dull hardwood floors back to a hard and gleaming finish?


I bought the kit to find out. I live in a 1940's-era cottage and while the hardwood flooring is in good shape the finish is almost gone, leaving them dull and unattractive.

The thought of sanding, staining and then applying several layers of poly on them seemed to be a huge job. If the Rejuvenate could spare me these steps, it would be the perfect purchase.

The kit comes in two parts. The first is a deep cleaner and the second is a restorative coating. The kit also comes with a lint-free mop cover for the product application.

The Rejuvenate floor cleaner was excellent. It wasn't harsh, yet it left the hardwoods spotless. It didn't leave an odor, which other products I've used have done, and there was a sufficient amount in the kit to do about 600 square feet.

Rejuvenate sells the cleaner separately and I've since purchased just the cleaning product again. I use it for spot cleaning and for a monthly deep cleaning. It does a particularly good job with light water spots.

The second step, the restorative coating, didn't impress. It looked good for about three days, but then normal foot traffic quickly wore the finish off. This wasn't a good return for either the price or the effort that went into applying it.

If you're simply looking for a cleaning product, I'd highly recommend the cleaning component of the Rejuvenate kit. If you're looking for gleaming hardwoods, I'm afraid you'll have to go the refinishing route.

Rejuvenate Floor Care Products Are Terrible

by SR101 Reader

An SR101 Reader shared her experience with these hardwood floor products, and was less than impressed with them.

SR101 Reader says:

I used both of these products on my hardwood floors, and they came out very glossy which had me concerned from the beginning.

Then, when I went to damp mop the floor it turned a pasty white.

It then took me over 7 hours on my hands and kness scrubbing to get it off, and yes, I followed the directions to the letter. This is a terrible product!

Taylor says:

Thanks for sharing your experience with me, although I'm sorry to hear it was so negative.

Has anyone else experienced this issue, especially with the floor restorer, turning hazy with time or damp mopping? If so, please share your hardwood floor cleaners review here, or read reviews of other products already shared by other readers.

Did Not Work On My Ceramic Tile Floor: I'm Returning It!

by Cheri
(San Diego)

I found this product at Home Depot and it sounded like it was just what I needed to bring back some shine and cover scratches to my ceramic tile floor.

It went on easily enough. I left the house for three hours to let it dry and returned home to my shiny floor.

Problem: when I walked on it barefoot, it was like walking on plastic cling wrap. The plastic finish stuck to my bare feet like cling wrap and came up off the floor.

Also, my feet left "footprints" on the shiny floor.

Getting a sick feeling in my stomach as my husband told me NOT to use this on our floor.

Thank God I only did an 8 foot by 5 foot section and not the whole downstairs! I'm returning the product tomorrow!

This Product Is Awful - How Can I Remove It?

by SR101 Reader

SR101 Reader says:

The refresher made my floors look great, but when I went to clean them with the Rejuvenate cleaner a few days later there was a milky, streaky haze on all of my floors.

I've spent two days using everything from vinegar, ammonia, Murphy's Oil Soap, dish soap and Goo Gone trying to get it off.

I still have a haze and sticky, gummy residue patches all over my floor.

Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to get my floors back to normal?

Taylor says:

I don't really have any additional suggestions for you, but I am so sorry this has turned into such a disaster for you!

I'd love to hear from other readers, to see if they have any additional suggestions for how to remove this product from their floor. If you've got any thoughts, share your ideas here.

***Update: Below, two different readers shared how they removed this product with ammonia, so check out how they did it since it might work for you. ***End Update

Rejuvenate Floor Restorer Is The Worst Product I Ever Used!

by Shanna

Shanna has also shared her review and experience with this product, and has not been pleased with it.

Shanna says:

Rejuvenate floor restoration product is the worst product that I have ever used. It made such a mess of our Brazilian Cherry hardwood that I thought we were going to have to replace them.

We followed the instructions to the letter. It went on streaky and also sticky. It felt dirty under your feet.

It took me 5 hours on my hands and knees with a pail of hot water, ammonia and a scraper, working a 4 X4 area at a time, to remove it.

I wouldn't give this product even one star, even that is too much.

Taylor says:

Sorry you had such a bad experience with this product Shanna, but thanks for alerting everyone to your problems with it so others can decide for themselves if they want to use it or not.

Has anyone else tried to remove this product from their hardwood floors after application? Shanna shared how she got it off, but what about you? What method did you use? You can share your tips here.

Rejuvenate Fiasco: Had To Remove It With Ammonia

by Joan

Joan says:

This was the worst nightmare of my life.

Their website says the product can be removed with vinegar...NOT.

I had to use ammonia - mixed 3 cups ammonia to 1 1/4 gallons of water.

I applied this to the floor over a small area using circular motion and let sit for a few minutes.

Then I used a metal scraper to lift this stuff off.

You may have to go over some areas again, but at least it works better than that company's preferred method.

Taylor says:

Thanks for sharing how you removed this product from your wood floor Joan, although it sure does sound like a fiasco just as you've said.

Sorry you had to go through this process.

Interestingly, I've suggested to people who've been unhappy with Orange Glo, and wanted to remove it from their floors, to use ammonia. (You can read a submission from a reader about it here.)

There are lots of uses for ammonia around your home, if you're interested in checking more of them out, or want to share your own.

Use Goof Off Heavy Duty Cleaner To Remove This Product

by Rudy
(Lindenhurst, NY)

Rudy says:

If you use Rejuvenate Floor Restorer there's a good chance you're going to want to remove it due to hazing, etc.

Hardwood flooring manufacturers DO NOT recommend using an ammonia based cleaner on factory finished floors.

Rejuvenate customer service representatives recommend using a non-ammoniated glass cleaner. In my experience that method does not work.

The only product I found that would dissolve Rejuvenate without damaging the original finish of the floor is Goof Off Heavy Duty cleaner which comes in a yellow spray bottle and is sold by Home Depot and can be found in their paint section.

Spray enough of the product onto a small section of flooring to make it wet, then rub it in with your fingers to help dissolve the Rejuvenate coating.

You will see the liquid turn a milky color when the Rejuvenate is dissolved.

Use an old towel to wipe up the mess following the grain of the wood.

Repeat with a lighter mist of Goof Off, wipe again, then buff with a dry terry cloth towel.

Change towels frequently.

Yes, this is a lot of work....something that would have been unnecessary had I only read some of the negative comments about Rejuvenate before I used it.

Taylor says:

Thanks so much for this advice Rudy, although I'm so sorry you had to find this out the hard way.

I've got some additional reviews and uses for Goof Off here. This stuff is pretty amazing!

As always, when using a product on your hardwood floors, I suggest testing in an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesn't damage them before you apply it over a large surface!

Rejuvenate Floor Cleaner And Restorer Worked Wonders On My Old Oak Floors

by Myrna
(Canada)

Rejuvenate Floor Cleaner

Rejuvenate Floor Cleaner

Myrna has shared her experiences with Rejuvenate floor cleaner and floor restorer.

Myrna says:

What can I say, these are great! The floor cleaner did an excellent job on a very old oak floor as well as my nice polyurethane oak floors.

There is no smell with these products, which are vital for me as I react to strong smells.

The restorer was a bit touchy on putting it on until I got the hang of it on the old floor. While it didn't restore the worn wood as well as I hoped it did an excellent job of improving the flooring by about 60%, enough so that the new tenants didn't mind how the floors looked and believe me, they were really dull and ugly before I did both steps!

I tried it on my nice and shiny oak floors and all I can say is that the floors that I did shine even more than the ones not done-my floors look like glass now, beautiful caramel oak glass!

It is NOT going to replace the quality of resanding and refinishing wood floors but overall it is the best product I have tried yet on my floors and I give it 5 stars.

Taylor says:

Thanks Myrna for sharing your Rejuvenate floor restorer and floor cleaner reviews.

This, as you know, is a product which is advertised on TV, and I've definitely gotten mixed reviews on it. From these reviews I'm basically hearing that the Rejuvenate floor cleaner is OK, but that although you disagree many people think the restorer isn't worth the price paid.

In fact, some people don't just think the restorer is not good, but think it is QUITE bad!

Does that about sum it up? If others have tried these products I would love to hear from you too, to see if you have similar experiences and opinions. You can share your hardwood floor cleaners review here, for this or any other product, telling me how it has worked for you on your hardwood floors. In addition, you can read other reviews that have already been submitted.

Deceptive Advertising
by: Charles Prim

My home is 6 years old and had very very few scratches which were primarily due to my dog. So after seeing your ad I decided to use your Rejuvenate and I am now very much sorry I did. I live alone along with my dog and I now have a mess on my hardwood flooring. There are scratches everywhere due to just myself walking around and the dog doing her normal walking around. I called you and you told me to use Windex which has ammonia which is the only thing that will remove the so called wonder wax. You should be ashamed of yourselves to promote such a crappy product!!! As a warning to others, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

Thanks for your comment. Just FYI Charles, my site, Stain Removal 101, is not owned and is not associated with the manufacturer of this product, so while I appreciate you telling me what happened when you used it, and warning other readers, this message has not reached the company.

How to remove this Garbage!
by: Warren

Easy. Use Windex with no ammonia. Spray on and let sit for 4-5 minutes. The floors will get a hazy color then simply scrub off. Do this is small sections. Plan to spend an entire day for a 20x10 room. I did. This product should be banned!!

Thank you

do not use!
by: Anonymous

Do not use. The coating gets all scratched up and looks horrible. Now I have to strip it off. Ugh!

A smeary mess.
by: Mildred Clark

When I used this parts of my floor looked really good, but in some sections it is just a smeary mess. Now I am going to have to strip the floor.

nothing but scratches
by: Lucy

Hate this product, used exactly as directed on my laminate floors. Looked wonderful until I replaced my kitchen chairs which are on rollers. Nothing but scratches. Now don't know how to remove the restorer that I applied. Would never use this product nor would I recommend it.

Messy smears
by: Angela

I have laminated floors. When I used this product parts of my floors looked really good, but in some sections it is just a smeary mess. I applied another coat, now it has smears in another section. I like it and don't like it.

Horrible and awful
by: Barbara

My husband bought the Rejuvenate kit. We used this product on our beautiful hardwood floors. Within a week the floors had a dull whitish coating! Nothing removes it. I called the Rejuvenate hotline number and the woman started saying that I had caused the problem by not using the product properly. When I told her that I HAD read the directions she practically called me a liar. She was very rude to me and actually HUNG up on me! I can't imagine how this product stays in business. It looks like these complaints have been following this product for years!Do NOT BUY!

What was I thinking?
by: Kathy

Do not use this product. I used it on my kitchen cabinets and they are ruined. To this day I do not know why I used it on them since the cabinets were new and cost $16,000 dollars. I called the company and they told me that I should apply another coat REALLY? This product is like putting on paint it does not come off. I blame myself for using this product but this should not be sold in supermarkets in the cleaning section. I was thinking it must be furniture polish. Still sick over this and it is 4 years.

Ruined hardwood floors
by: Irene

This stuff ruined my hardwood floors, I will never get the normal look again, they are smudgy and horrible looking. I emailed the company, they never respond. Don't purchase this product it's garbage.

Do not use
by: Anonymous

We used the Rejuvenate restorer and this was the worst decision we could have made for our hardwood floors. It showed scratches from our dogs which were not seen before we used the product. It left a thin plastic type film on the floors. It was hard to remove and we now have to have our floors refinished professionally. Absolutely DO NOT recommend this product.

Should not be on the market
by: Anonymous

Used it on my floors and at first it looked great. In a few days, my floors looked scratched. Long story short, this stuff builds up and leaves a waxy residue. The residue scratches within a few days and makes it look like the floor is scratched. The darker the floor, the worse it looks. The only thing that takes it off your floors is pure ammonia (which can ruin some floors). Nothing else will remove it. Fortunately, I was able to use ammonia. Over a 1000 square foot of floor pours straight ammonia on small section of floor at a time and used a credit card to scrape crap up and then wiped up. Took 2 days on hands and knees. Floors now look good.
THIS STUFF SHOULD NOT BE ON MARKET. I'm really surprised someone hasn't sued them.

Renew versus Restore
by: Anonymous

I believe that was caused by your floor still being new enough to still be all or mostly covered by the original topcoat. The cleaner is great for those types of floors. It's made unlike other floor cleaners to not leave behind residues and help keep the floor looking shiny and clean. The renewer product is like putting a thin simple layer or sealant or wax on the floor. If the floor is still in decent enough shape that the current topcoat is still there then the renewer product doesn't have anything it can adequately adhere to.
