It is funny that I would post something that you should never do to hardwood floors, because the only reason that we know is because we have tried it! Read on to find the one thing you should never use on hardwood floors (& how to fix scratches)
Why? This may be an “I already knew that” moment for you or it may be an “ah-ha” type of moment. One time, our kids had mad such a mess on our floors that I decided to use pledge to clean it up… HUGE MISTAKE!
I practically caused an ice skating rink on that section of the kitchen. It was awful. My dad had done this before, too, and the same thing happened to him. I tried to take it off with soap and water. It didn’t help. I eventually resorted to using the Magic Eraser because I was so afraid of the kids getting hurt. (It didn’t do much, either)
My other tip – to fix scratches, use Old English furniture polish.
It makes the biggest difference. It is easy to use and works really well for this! I used it when we moved in to fix the MANY scratches left by the previous owner’s dog. It worked like a charm!
