Sugar Moon Antiques & Fg Clothing proudly carry Howard Restor-A-Finish® 8oz.
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. Restor-A-Finish® 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 complete refinishing job can be restored in a matter of minutes. Restor-A-Finish® penetrates faded lacquer, shellac or varnish finishes to bring back the original color, while it blends out white heat rings and water marks. Sun fade, oxidation, smoke damage and most other blemishes can be quickly blended away. Follow up with Howard Feed-N-Wax® or Citrus-Shield™ Paste Wax to help maintain the newly restored finish.

Restore It - Don't Strip It!
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. White heat rings and water marks, sun fade, oxidation, smoke damage, and most other blemishes can be quickly eliminated. Before you go to the extreme of stripping it, try restoring it!Restor-A-Finish is available in nine colors: Neutral, Maple-Pine, Golden Oak, Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, Dark Walnut, Dark Oak, and Ebony Brown.
Treat Scratches, Nicks, and Abrasions
Restor-A-Finish® works best when applied with a small pad of toweling, or for severe white rings and crazing, with Super Fine(0000) steel wool. DO NOT pour directly on the finish. When using steel wool, always rub with the grain of the wood. First, determine the pressure you should use on an inconspicuous spot, as the hardness of finishes vary.
Revive Wood Finishes
Wipe on the appropriate color of Restor-A-Finish® with a clean cloth. Let it stand for a few minutes then wipe dry. If you desire a slightly darker shade, simply apply a darker color of Restor-A-Finish®.
White Heat Rings and Water Marks
Apply Restor-A-Finish® (see above) with steel wool and rub hard enough with the grain of the wood to blend out the white effect. If high gloss finish should appear dull due to the use of steel wool, polish it out with a Howard Polishing Compound or Burnishing Cream.
Raised and Blistered Finishes
Apply Neutral Restor-A-Finish® (to prevent darkening of wood beyond temporary "wet effect") with steel wool. As blisters soften press down while the Restor-A-Finish® is applied. Wipe dry, and again later if the surface "blooms" with excess Restor-A-Finish®.
Restore Minor Crazed or Checked Finishes
Apply Restor-A-Finish® with Fine Grade(000) steel wool. Rub hard enough to smooth out the finish, periodically checking your progress. Checked or crazed surfaces may absorb an excess of Restor-A-Finish and "bloom out" requiring another wiping later.
Treat Carved Wood
Restor-A-Finish® has saved many hours of labor by restoring the finish on carved portions of furniture and clocks. Simply apply Restor-A-Finish® with a small paint brush or soft tooth brush and wipe off.
Be careful to protect fabric, carpets, and linoleum when applying Restor-A-Finish®. It may leave a permanent stain. If spilling occurs, immediately scrub areas with straight liquid detergent or stain remover and wipe dry. Be sure to cover a small area at a time when applying Restor-A-Finish®. Always wipe dry. DO NOT apply Restor-A-Finish® to the new imitation wood finishes or use it under polyurethane finishes.
