How to Use Our Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner
Deep Cleaner to the rescue! Many of you have asked if there are any tips or tricks to the Deep Cleaner process so you can reapply the Quick Shine® Floor Finish to get your floors back to that WOW factor.
Today, we are happy to share with you the recommended steps below to give you confidence in conquering your floors like superman!
The Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner was specifically developed to not only deep clean but also to safely remove our finish from your floors. Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner/Wax Remover will also remove other waxes and finishes without harming hardwood floors or their polyurethane seal or any other type of hard floor surface. Below are 6 quick tips on how to use our Deep Cleaner:
- In a bucket, dilute the Deep Cleaner in HOT water as HOT water is more effective.
- Using a sponge mop or our Hardwood Floor Mop, apply it to the floor surface. Do small sections (5’x5’) of the floor at a time in order to maintain a more manageable removal and clean-up.
- Allow the Deep Cleaner solution to remain on the floor for a few minutes. CAUTION: Do not allow the solution to dry and re-adhere to the surface. If the solution appears to be drying, add a little warm water to keep the surface wet.
- The Quick Shine Floor Finish that you are removing should start to turn to a milky white film indicating the finish is being removed.
- After a few minutes, agitate with our microfiber scrubber pad. Aggressive agitation and elbow grease are typically required to remove ground-in dirt and multiple layers of the finish.
- Once you have removed the floor finish, rinse the area with clear, warm water and allow it to dry. Then you can proceed to the next 5’x5’ area and repeat steps 1-6.
NOTE: For heavy build-up, you may need to use a second treatment, and/or you can also increase the dilution from 1 cup per gallon to 2-3 cups per gallon. Deep Cleaner is concentrated, therefore it makes 3.5 gallons (at 1 cup per gallon), which should be enough for 500 square feet.
After completing this process, once your floors have completely dried you can now reapply a coat of our Quick Shine® Floor Finish or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Luster to bring your floors back to life giving them the shine they deserve!
We hope these simple steps have helped you with using the Deep Cleaner correctly and efficiently. Now you can proudly wear that S on your chest and have triumphed for your floors!

i can’t remove smudges left by quick shine deep cleanerl
Hi Shirley! That indicates there is still a little bit of finish remaining on the floor and will need a second application of the Deep Cleaner to remove completely. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call our Customer Service M-F at 1-800-255-1891 from 8am-4:30pm EST. Thank you for being a great customer!
Is this a product that can be high speed buffed? Also, what process do you recommend to maintain floors on a quarterly basis?
Our Quick Shine Deep Cleaner is a solution that you mop on and allow to sit for a few minutes before mopping back off to remove layers of our Quick Shine Finish. Contractors have often used a buffer machine to speed up the removal process, however a simple mop and bucket is all that is required. For best results, you may start with a mop, allow solution to sit for 2-3 minutes and buff away. For more information, please contact customer service at 800-255-1891. We are always happy to help!
How do you remove Quick Shine Floor Finish that dripped off the bottle onto a sink top?
Hi Niki! You can remove the Quick Shine Floor Finish from a variety of surfaces with Windex or Formula 409. Apply either of these products directly onto the Quick Shine splatter and leave it on for a minute or so, and then wipe it off with a damp cloth. This method has worked for many of our consumers who needed to remove a small amount from stainless steel appliances, countertops, or tables. If you have further questions, please feel free call our Customer Service Center M-F at-1-800-255-1891 from 8am-4:30pm EST. Thank you for being a great customer!
What about using it on a stone/ceramic tile bathroom floor? It said quick shine can be used to shine these floors but the floor has looked uneven and peely and I’ve been trying hard to remove it. Wanting to buy this product to do so, but will it also work on this type of floor?
Yes, our Quick Shine Deep Cleaner will safely remove our Finish from your tile floors. This product was specifically developed to remove polymer and wax finishes without harming hardwood floors or other types of hard surface floors such as tile, vinyl, stone, marble, and laminate.
Simply dilute the Deep Cleaner in HOT water and apply to the floor surface, let stand for a few minutes and agitate. Do small sections of the floor at a time. Then remove debris and build-up from the floor with a clear water rinse. For heavy buildup, you may need to increase the dilution of 1 cup per gallon to 3 cups per gallon. Deep Cleaner is concentrated, therefore one 27 oz. bottle will make roughly 2 gallons, which covers about 500 square feet and will not damage the sealant on hardwood floors. The Quick Shine Deep Cleaner is only available online at http://www.quickshine.net or by calling our Customer Service Center.
After using our Deep Cleaner, apply two or three coats of Quick Shine Floor Finish once each coat of finish has completely dried. You will be amazed at the deep, rich, even, protective glow. You will not need to go through the removing process again if applied and maintained correctly.

Will this product work on a wood surface? The Quick Shine bottle left a ring on my wood nightstand.
Hi Judy! Yes, you can use our Deep Cleaner to remove that. You can also use WINDEX or FORMULA 409 to remove small areas of the Finish as in your situation. Apply either of these products directly onto the Quick Shine splatter and leave it on for a minute or so, and then wipe it off with a damp cloth. This method has worked for many of our consumers who needed to remove a small amount from stainless steel appliances, countertops or tables. Thank you!
How do you remove quick shi e floor finish frat has dried on the microfiber pad?
Hi Brandy! You can soak the pad in a mixture of ammonia and water for about 1-2 hours. We recommend doing a half and half ratio. The ammonia should help emulsify any Floor Finish still in your microfiber pad. To prevent this from happening in the future, we recommend to rinse out the pad with HOT tap water immediately after applying the Floor Finish. Thank you!
We are seeing streaks after applying the finish coat on our tile floors. Do we have to start the process over and use the cleaner again? Help
Hi Linda! A cloudy, white residue or streaks that occur after recently applied floor finish can be caused by having applied the finish to an unclean surface, not using a fresh applicator pad (if the pad was previously used to clean with), allowing foot or pet traffic on the floor before the finish has dried, or not allowing each coat to completely dry before applying additional coats.
To correct your situation, we recommend using the Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner. It will remove all the Floor Finish safely from your floors if used properly. After using the Deep Cleaner, apply two or three coats of Quick Shine Floor Finish once each coat of finish has completely dried. You will be amazed at the deep, rich, protective glow. If applied and maintained correctly, you will not need to go through the removing process again.

Would I be able to put the deep cleaning product in my shampooer and apply to my floor this way like shampooing carpet?
We do not recommend putting our Quick Shine Deep Cleaner in your shampooer. The Floor Finish once dried can leave hardened residue on your shampooer and possibly clog the openings. The best method for removal is a sponge mop or microfiber mop that you can frequently rinse to release the emulsified Finish. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to call our customer service specialist at 800-255-1891.
Was so happy to find the removal information. I have been using Quick Shine on my hardwood floors for around ten years, my floors have had many grandkids roller skate, ride stick horse’s, and many other things that would make a grandma cringe. However, thanks to your wonderful quick shine floor finish, I get many compliments on how my 15 year old floor looks as if I just had it redone. I love your product, however it’s time to strip the old wax and start with a new coat. Thank you again for the information and for making an awesome product. Sincerely, Lillian
Thank you for the compliment and brand loyalty Lillian. Our Quick Shine Deep Cleaner will safely remove all those layers and bring you back down to the original floor surface. Once removed, simply apply a few new coats of Finish to give your floors a deep, rich, protective glow.

I have been using quick shine myself for years. I have read these comments about “rings” and “spots”… Look, read the instructions. You sound like idiots. If you simply drop liquid wax onto your floors and let it dry, yes, it isn’t going to look good. My wood floors have held up amazing!! Spread it evenly on clean floors and you will love the results!!! My next project is using the deep cleaner this weekend as it is now time to strip it off and start from new.
I just moved to a New Apartment and they used your product on the plastic wood looking floors. The floors look amazing. However when they must have applied the last coat, someone stepped on the product which must have been wet. The overall floor looks great except for a few footprints left by one of the workers. Perhaps it’s 3-4 footprints across a 15×15 foot area. What’s the best way to remedy this and I do have the floor finish product but nothing to remove the footprints? I tried some ammonia but that didn’t seem to really take them out. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I love your product.
Hi Robert! To remove the footprints that were left in the finish, you can use our Quick Shine Deep Cleaner to correct your situation. The Deep Cleaner will safely remove the finish from the floor. After all the finish is removed and the floor has dried, you may re-apply the Floor Finish to give your floors that beautiful shine again! If you have any further questions please feel free to call our Customer Service M-F at 1-800-255-1891 from 8am-4:30pm EST. We are always happy to help!
