Application Directions

  • Preparation Warning
    Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING MINWAX® HARDWOOD FLOOR CLEANER?

Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner has been exclusively formulated for use on hardwood, laminate, and pre-finished floors. Unlike other surface cleaners, Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner is designed to clean wood floors without leaving a residue, which other all-purpose cleaners may leave.

CAN I USE MY MINWAX® HARDWOOD FLOOR CLEANER ON FINISHED HARDWOOD FLOORS, LAMINATES, AND PRE-FINISHED FLOORING?

Yes. Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner can be used on surfaces such as laminates and pre-finished floors in addition to hardwood floors.

DOES MINWAX® HARDWOOD FLOOR CLEANER NEED TO BE MIXED WITH WATER?

No. It comes premixed and ready to use.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MINWAX® HARDWOOD FLOOR CLEANER IS ACCIDENTALLY USED IN EXCESS ON OILED, WAXED OR RAW WOOD SURFACES?

Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner will not permanently damage wood. If the product is accidentally left on a wood surface finished with wax or oil, the finish may turn white, as it would if water were left on it for a long period of time. If the application of more finish does not repair the whitened areas, then reapply the oil finish using fine steel wool.
