Restor-A-Finish is a unique finish-penetrating formula that restores the original color and luster to your finish while blending out the blemishes and minor scratches. It cleans the surface and restores the finish in one step - without removing any of the existing finish. With a simple wipe-on, wipe-off process, most finished wood surfaces that seem to need a refinishing job can be completely restored in a few minutes. Before you go to the extreme of stripping it, try restoring it!


Features:
  • Eliminates white heat rings and water marks
  • Blends out scratches and blemishes
  • Restores color and luster to faded finishes
  • Will NOT dissolve existing finish
  • Shipping Restrictions: Ground Transportation Only.

White spots on wenge venner
The product worked wonders on the mysterious white spots on wenge veneer.
The professional advice from company expert who recomended this from numerous Liberon products came after a lengthy conversation, asking details and showing lots of care.
I am sorry I have not taken picture before using it.

Great product
I used this to fix scratches in my acacia wood floor. Blended in perfectly. I used a small paint brush and it was easy to cover the scratches. I'm glad the person at Rockler recommended this to me.

Tom v on Jan 4, 2017
How you pick the best shade? If you're not sure is it better to go dark or light?
Caeliot on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are not sure of the shade that you need, it is best to go neutral.
is this product toxic?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is oil-based, so it might have some ability to irritate sensitive skin & is flammable. It should be used with ventilation, as there are fumes. We did not experience any ill effects & we used a whole bunch.
Can you use this on outdoor furniture?
Jill G on Jun 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not . If you're planning to preserve the furniture I was certainly put a sealant on it after you use this to refinish it
Can I apply tung oil after applying the Restore?
john m on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not.
Restore-A-Finish is not an oil and anything to Condition the wood is always good
Used Restor on mahogany outdoors covered porch, but while looks great is now shiny, slippery, especially with sneakers and shows footprints. I applied it with a cloth and wiped off as directed. What should I do now to make it less slippery?
Ted W on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like it should not have been used on a floor..........check directions again...........mine was used on furniture
Can you use a lighter finish, like Maple/Pine, on a darker wood like dark oak and have similar results? or should you use the dark oak on dark oak? Reason for question- We already have a can of maple/pine.
pinky on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have never had luck going lighter, but it's possible there is a way. If there is a way, I'm not aware of it.
I have a lot of built-up oil and gunk from fingers touching cabinets that do not have pulls. I have tried many products to get it off but no luck. I want to use Restor-a-Finish to renew cabinets -- but what do you suggest to prepare?
Macy G on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Before you use this I would use a furniture cleaner like item #19100 or murphy's oil soap to clean off the oils and dirt.
Can Restor-a-finish be used to darken wood?
A shopper on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This will have color to it that will fill in nicks and scratches. It is not used to darken the overall color of the finish though.
How can I weather proof the finish, I used it on our exterior door?
Karen S on Oct 16, 2017
I just had delivered a new beige wood console and there was sticky residue on top so I put Goof Off on it and it turned white instantly. What can I do to cover the white stain and restore finish?
