Pros:Shines, Revitalizes, and Protects my hardwood floors
The Bottom Line: Orange Glo Wood Floor Polish and Cleaner does a beautiful job of revitalizing and protecting my hardwood floors, while adding lasting shine and filling in small scratches.
I was surprised when I looked at all the reviews of Orange Glo Wood Floor Cleaner and saw all the negative ones. It seems this product has been around for a long time, and I am not sure if I have an updated version or if my floor is somehow different, or maybe I am using it differently than how others are using it. Over all I have been extremely pleased with this product, but we do not exactly use it to clean but more to provide a nice shine and protection for the floors once every few months.

Our Wood Floors
We moved into our home nearly 2 yrs ago, and we have hardwood floors in our Foyer, downstairs hallway, kitchen, sun room, and mudroom. It's a lot of hardwood and these rooms are all connected. I am honestly not sure what sort of wood floors I have but I am assuming pre-finished. The home is about 6yrs old and had two previous owners before us so I am not sure how they cared for the floors. To me the floors seemed in good shape but I noticed some small scratches. The floors have a sort of distressed look to them so they are not real noticeable and only in the finish, not into the wood.
How we clean our floors
I use Orange Glo Everyday Cleaner for Hardwood floors to clean my floors. I also use a steam mop on occasion, in conjunction with vacuuming and sometimes damp mopping. Before I ever use Orange Glo Polish and Cleaner I thoroughly clean my floor first.
Before you Start
Even though I have had great results with Orange Glo Cleaner and Polish, I have seen enough "horror story" reviews that I would definitely suggest doing a patch test before applying it to your whole floor. First off if you have ever used anything with a wax or oil in it, you have to remove it completely or you will end up with streaks and uneven coverage if it sticks at all. When you are ready to start, coat a small area in an inconspicuous area and let it dry at least 12 hrs before deciding to proceed with the rest of your floors.
How I use Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Polish and Cleaner
Orange Glo Polish and Cleaner is designed to be a cleaner and polish in one but frankly I think this is ridiculous. How can something that leaves a coating be used to clean? If you use it this way you are going to eventually get a dirty build up.
The directions on the Orange Glo Floor Cleaner and polish say to vacuum up any dust first before using. I do this but also clean my floors and let them dry before using the polish. The directions also state that you should use a damp mop to apply it. When I first bought the Orange Glo Floor Cleaner and Polish I bought it in a kit with a mop that has a removable microfiber cloth attached and a bottle of the everyday floor cleaner. I use the mop that came with the kit to apply the polish to my clean floors. Even though it says to start with a pad moistened with water, I just moisten it with the polish. Since I am not cleaning I am not having to rinse out the pad and am just using it to apply the Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Cleaner and Polish on my Floor. I find that it dries faster when I do not use any water with it.
I work in squares about 4ft by 4ft trying to make sure to get just a thin and even coating all over the floor and not leaving any break marks. I find it is very easy to do and does not take a long time since I do not have to stop and rinse the pad. I always work in such a way that I end up in a place where I can step off the floor. It is wise to think ahead so you don't back yourself into a corner.
I rinse the pad out first and then throw it into the washing machine and wash it to be ready to use next time.
The Results - In a word ... Beautiful
We have been thrilled with the results of using Orange Glo Cleaner and Polish essentially as a Polish to coat our floors, give them a shiny finish and cover up small scratches. I feel that the product gives the floor a warm glow if that makes sense. While the product is clear, adding the shine and filling in small scratches seems to create a slightly deeper color to the floor when I am done. I only use this 3-4 times a year at the most and when I re-apply I am pretty sure everything has completely worn off or been washed off the floor so I get the same beautiful results every time.
I also feel that by using Orange Glo Polish and Cleaner that it provides some protection to the actual floor. Maybe someday I will refinish the floors but for now with our current Use of Orange Glo on Clean floors, this product Shines, Protects and Revitalizes our hardwood floors beautifully.
