I posted this before but for some reason it never showed up; hope it
does not double-post now. Are any of you familiar with Holloway House
Quick Shine Floor Finish. It claims it renews and shines all types of
floors (wood, tile, laminate, vinyl, etc.) and is not a wax, but a
polymer, therefore never yellows and never needs to be removed.
I am wondering if it is really any better than plain old floor wax (the
mop-on, point 'n' squirt kind, not the "real" kind that needs buffing).
It certainly is more expensive, but if it works as advertised and
really doesn't yellow, I'd be up for it.
Have you tried it? Any opinions?
The first one is there, it may not have made it to the server you are
accessing yet. No response as of now.
I would guess that it is nothing new or different and that if you are
expecting anything other than a polish, you will be disappointed.
Hi, I've been using HollowayHouse for maybe 8 years on some wood floors
(some were new, some refinished 23 years ago, in good condition). I think
it works 'nicely' -- maybe as compared to a POLISH the people who did the
floors way back recommended : it left the floors fairly '''dull''' I
HH leaves a nice shine which remains for quite awhile, unless, say you
walk with damp socks or ?? on it or must wipe up a spill <<< it is only a
polish, not like a polyurethane finish ....
I was purchasing this at WALMART, but twice going there I could not find
it in their 'floor cleaner & polish' section. Customer service had long
line, so I may phone them to see if it's just 'backordered' or they
dropped it. I believe they had a PLEDGE polish which I've not used.
I have question 4 U ..... it seems no one sells a WAX/Polish -- just
the old push type, usu. with a washable covering on end -- like mops for
cleaning wood, vinyl, tile, other floors (not carpet/rugs) ... the
grocStores, KMart or Walmart seem to stock only Mops !!! maybe they think
due to better finishes, vinyl, etc. that persons Do Not Wax or Polish any
floors ? ! Barb in MD

Jo Ann - I can attest to Holloway House Quick Shine as being terrific!!!
I've used it for the last 8 years. I used to buy it at Walmart however,
they stopped stocking it. So, I'm on the internet tonight searching for
where I can buy it because I love it that much. Other floor waxes, I have
to use once a month and it turns yellow after time, but Holloway House I
only have to use 3-4 times a year and it has yet to yellow. I found your
post and wanted to reply because I absolutely love this product. I use it
on linolium and hardwood floors. I even used it on my paneling in one
room to brighten it up and it made the room look like new. So, try it, I
promise you'll love it as much as I do!!!
