A lot depends on where the stairs are in the house and your usual footwear
in that area of the house.
Being Canadian (and as close to a red-neck as Canadians get). I wear
socks..... Brits, OTOH, wear slippers - usually some variation on rubber
compounds for soles...... watching TV, I see Yanks wear their grubby old
street shoes in the house.
Upsides... I change my socks every day and wind up polishing the things I
walk on. The Brits don't do much good for their floors, but at least their
socks last longer. Yanks.... well, if you're lucky, that dog turd will at
least fall off under the coffee table....
It's mostly a joke, fercrisesakes.... but I still stand by the footwear
part. Usage defines finish...
Ok I did a DAGS and did not find the answer. What is the best finish to use
on stair treads ? My wife loves the look of oil but I am not sure that would
hold up. Any suggestions would be helpful.
