White and Green Pads

Application and cleaning pads. Use the supplied white pad for application and the green pad for intensive cleaning and removal stubborn stains and dirt. Note that the green pad is not recommended for use with rubber floors.

Furniture Protectors

Scratch protection. Simply place the pads onto the feet of your chairs, table legs and other furniture to protect your floor from scratching.

How do I use the kit?

We'll break it down real simple for you to follow!

Step 1. Hoover that floor! You'll need to get good old Henry out to hoover up all the little bits and dust so your floor it's bitty free. 

Step 2. Scrub Scrub Scrub. Use the Clean and Strip solution undiluted to spot clean any old floor polish or stains with the green pad. Once those stubborn stain patches are removed, use the Clean and Strip solution again, this time diluting it with water and apply it to your whole flooring with the white pad which can be attached to a mop. After this, you should clean the floor again with just water to neutralise the surface.After stripping and rinsing, leave your floor to dry!

Step 3. It's time to Matt! If scratches and wear marks are still visible, use the Floor Matt solution undiluted to spread evenly across the floor. It forms a natural matt care film, which brings out the warmth in your floor and it's natural appearance. It protects the floor from new scratches and makes the most worn floors look brand spanking new again.
