wood floors-did anyone try orange glow?

I am moving in 2 months and I just threw away my rug in the living room, the floor need to be redone, it has been 8 years or more since they have been done, but I would like them to look really nice for the moving party.

Any suggestions??? There are a few spots that stand out otherwise they look really good.

  • I hardwood throughout, and we use either Orange Glo or Murphy Oil Soap. I prefer the Murphy, but that is just me!

  • I worked for a flooring company for 9 years and the last thing that you want to put on your wood floors is Orange Glo, Murphy Oil, etc.... I suggest you go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy Bruce hardwood floor cleaner. They also have a Duraluster which will bring out the shine in your wood.
