You Ask, We Answer: Quick Shine® Q & A

Quick Shine® Floor Care products are fantastic tools to revive and keep your floors looking new again!  Just like any other household product, customers might have some questions about it.  So today we are covering some common questions asked by our consumers.

Q:  I saw your commercial on TV.  Where can I find your Quick Shine® Floor Finish or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Luster product?
A:  Our Floor Finish and Hardwood Luster are in most major retailers and some of your local ones as well.  Check out our Store Locator to see all the retailers where you can purchase our product.

Q:  When I was applying the Floor Finish to my floors, I sat the bottle on my table and it has dripped onto the surface.  How can I get this off without damaging my table?
A:  Anytime you accidentally get any drops of our Floor Finish or Hardwood Floor Luster on your table or counter, even after it’s dried, you can use Windex or Formula 409 to remove it.  Spray it on the area, let it sit for a minute or so then wipe it up with a damp cloth or sponge.  This method also works for customers who might have any over-splash on the bottom of their walls or appliances when applying the Floor Finish or Hardwood Luster on their floors.

Q:  What can I use to clean my floors with after I’ve applied the Quick Shine® Floor Finish?
A:  Routine cleaning using our Quick Shine® Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner via our Multi-Surface Spray Mop and microfiber pad is the best process.  However, after applying the Floor Finish we recommend waiting 4-5 days before using the cleaner on your floors to give it time to fully cure.  You can always dust mop during the first few days to keep your floors free of dirt and debris.

Q:  I used the Floor Cleaner on my floors, but they are not shiny.  The bottle says Quick Shine® so can you help me understand what went wrong?
A:  This is a common misconception.  Quick Shine® is the brand name of our Floor Care products line; however depending on what your floor care needs are will depend on which Quick Shine® product you’d want to use.  If you are looking for a floor cleaner, you can use our Quick Shine® Floor Cleaner or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Cleaner as a regular cleaning agent.  If you are looking to give your floors a shine or to revive your hardwoods, you can use our Quick Shine® Floor Finish or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Luster to give your floors that WOW factor.

Q:  I applied the Quick Shine® Floor Finish to my floor and now, it looks streaky and cloudy.  What did I do wrong?
A:  Streaking is usually caused by a few issues: 1.) Not enough product was initially applied and you can correct that with an additional coat; 2.) There was residue on the floor before the Floor Finish was applied.  For example, other brand floor cleaning agents, or a vinegar solution; 3.) The same applicator pad used to clean your floors is being used to apply the Floor Finish; 4.) Not allowing sufficient time before applying subsequent coats; 5.) Trying to apply too many coats in a short period of time, not allowing each coat to dry completely.

    I used Quick Shine Luster on my floors following the directions using a brand new microfiber mophead which I rinsed with water. The floor is streaky and cloudy. How do I fix this? Not happy about spending the day mopping.

      Hi Carol,

      a streaky/cloudy appearance is caused when a cleaner has left soap residue on the floor preventing our finish from properly adhering to the surface. To remedy your situation, we recommend removing our finish with Quick Shine Deep Cleaner. Simply dilute our Deep Cleaner with hot water and apply to 5′ sections at a time. Allow solution to sit for 3-4 minutes and mop away. Quick Shine Deep Cleaner is only available online at this time at http://www.quickshine.net or http://www.walmart.com. For more information, please contact customer service at 800-255-1891. We are always happy to help!

    Does the mop head need to be wet before applying?

      Hi Janet,

      We recommend using the mop pad damp when applying Quick Shine as it helps spread out the Finish for an even appearance.

    The cloth I used to apply quick shine is now hard as a rock. I can’t make it soft again. If I try to apply quick shine with it again, it’s all streaky because the cloth is now rigid.

    I don’t want to have to use a new cloth everytime. Should I not use a cloth? Is there a way to make cloths used to spread quick shine soft again??

      Hi Ryan,

      We recommend soaking the pad for 30-45 minutes in a mixture of 1 cup Ammonia and 1/2 gallon of HOT water. Rinse pad with clean water to release our Finish and soften the fibers again. Once the pad is clean, you should be able to reuse it without any streaking. Always rinse your pad immediately after use to avoid it stiffening again.

        I use the quick shine on my hard wood floors and absolutely love it! They are real oak floors in an older home. I was wondering if I can use the quick shine on granite countertops. They are sealed but need something to make them shine. I know it can be used for stone floors I am just not sure about the countertops?

          Hi Nancy,

          Although Quick Shine was formulated for floors, many of our consumers use it on other surfaces including granite counter tops, cabinetry and furniture. We recommend wiping any residue from previous products off of your counter tops first and test our Finish in a small area to assure it performs properly. For additional assistance, please contact customer service at 800-255-1891. We are always happy to help!
