Rejuvenate Floor Restorer And Floor Cleaner Review - Love The Cleaner But Not The Restorer
Heather has shared her Rejuvenate floor restorer and Rejuvenate floor cleaner review.
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.
Thanks Heather for sharing your Rejuvenate floor restorer and cleaner reviews.
This is a product that is sold on TV, and I guess I've always been wary of these products, so I am glad to hear a review to be able to form a better opinion of the product.

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!
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.
Use Goof Off Heavy Duty Cleaner To Remove This Product
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.
Thanks so much for this advice Rudy, although I'm so sorry you had to find this out the hard way.
Rejuvenate Floor Cleaner And Restorer Worked Wonders On My Old Oak Floors
Rejuvenate Floor Cleaner
Myrna has shared her experiences with Rejuvenate floor cleaner and floor restorer.
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.
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.
