Scott's Liquid Gold is great

Recently, I was contacted by a representative of Scott's Liquid Gold to review their products.  I was more than happy to oblige, so I chose two items and squealed when they arrived!  First up was their wood wash:
This product is formulated to clean wood surfaces, from furniture to floors.  I gave it a quick little test drive on our stairs today.  Our stairs are almost always messy, whether from dust, cat hair, or dirt from our shoes. 
It's rather hard to capture, but trust me, they are dirty!  A couple sprays on each tread are all I used.
I was immediately struck with the scent.  It's delicious, like a fresh perfume....definitely not a typical 'cleaner' smell!  I dabbed some behind my ears, because you can never be too clean behind your ears.  And it smells that good.  And....here is a fabulous shot of me wiping up the cleaner with a towel!
Wooooo!  Amazing!  It cleaned my stairs!  Since it does, in fact, clean well...I think I love it.
Normally we use Bona cleaner on our floors and stairs, but I think we may have to pick this product up occasionally.  Pluses: It's cheaper than my Chanel the smell is good, the spray bottle is much nicer (the Bona one is really weird - you never get a full spray) and it seems to do a great job cleaning the wood.   
Looks good to me!  Next week I will review the other product I received, Mold Control.  
I know what you're thinking, "Sara cannot have mold in her house!"  Well, I probably do.  Somewhere around this horrible pit general area.    
ps - the laundry area doesn't look like this anymore, but this photo from our first walk-through is much more dramatic and moldy-looking.  And I'm still about two years away from an 'after' post.  So there. 
pps - under those rubber mats was wet latex paint in every color of the rainbow.  Can I get a 'BOOZIE' shout-out up in here?  (Kim already did hers)

Oooh I would totally love to try that. I can't figure out how to properly clean my wood floors!

I can't wait for the next review--unfortunately we have a moldy area or two. sigh. Old houses, gotta love 'em.

BOOZIE SUSIE!

Our basement at our house is nast-tastic. It needs to be bathed in bleach before we move in.

I had that SAME laundry sink when I moved into my house. When I purchased the house 7 years later, I hired a couple of guys to take it out. A short while later I heard they laughed all of the way to the bank when they got the check for selling it as scrap.

Yikes!! You saw that in your walk through and was able to still see the beauty......! That's the kind of people I like! :-)) ...Beautiful stairs, by the way. Can't wait to see the other one's results!

We have a slate surround on our fireplace. My sister taught me to rub Liquid Gold all over to make the black finish pop. I also use it on my stainless sink to make it shiny and new.

Love Liquid Gold.

How exciting! I will have to check out some of that liquid gold for our hardwood floors! Thanks for sharing!

Have a great weekend :)

I've used one of their sprays on my floors too and it was great.

Dang girl, you're getting all sorts of goodies! :) Thanks for the review - we could use a good cleaner like this! And I am running out of perfume too.....

ooo I always love a good wood cleaner.

I kind of love when my house smells like Murphy's Oil soap after doing all the floors.

I don't get high, but if I did, it would be off MOS.
