The first time i used it I was amazed but you need to know that cloudy ammonia is needed to clean the previous shine away before the next shine as it will build up and then it absorbs the dirt because it is too thick,so i finally googled what i needed to clean it off and lo and behold strait away this was the answer to my prayers,now i can use it with confidence on vinyl floor in the kitchen

Followed the directions to the letter, it's destroyed the look of my beautiful bamboo floors
Staging my apt for a sale.
Need to have beautiful looking floors. I've got solid 14 mm bamboo flooring installed in the last 6 months that looks great. Wanting to make it look that much better I tried the Pascoes long life self shining polish.
I cleaned the floor thoroughly first as directed. With a vacuum first then to remove any residual.
Then I got a wet mop at the ready and I squeezed out the polish on the floor in a zig zag pattern and then got the wet mop to evenly distribute over the floor. It looked absolutely amazing when it was wet, b...
Very poor result
Have used Mop and Glow for years on my very expensive vinyl floor with excellent results. Purchased the Self Shining Floor Polish due to the claim it was new and improved. It states suitable for vinyl, sadly it is not. Followed the instructions. Cleaned my floor with a gentle Ammonia wash. Dried. Applied this new Self Shining and it failed to shine, no glow at all ... but worse the floor was really sticky. Never again. Thrown the bottle out. Will return to Mop and Glow.

First time I've bought this stuff, and probably the last. The lid does not seal and leaked half the contents into my car. Don't care if the product works, it has to stay in the bottle long enough to go 10 minutes down the road.
Purchased in February 2019 for A$9.50.
LONG LIFE ORIGINAL
I have been using this for many years even decades and I have always been so darn happy with it, I now have just enough left for 1 more use.
Woollies and Coles no longer sell it Bunnings do BUT it is the IMPROVED version and it is NOT for Lino -- which I have -- it is for Vinyl and other things BUT NOT LINO, so be very careful make sure you read the label as the formula has changed and what you were happy with before you may not be now.
I repeat the ORIGINAL is suitable for Lino the IMPROVED is not!
It was a great product and I wish they would bring the Original back.
Perfect Results Everytime!
I have been using this product for many years now, and every time I use it the result leaves me with a big smile on my face. The old, dull and battered vinyl floors look like new, and the shine is simply hard to believe. It's very easy to use and you will enjoy your shiny floors for many years. Nothing can beat this product. I simply love it!
Don't ever stop making Long Life
This stuff is great! Yes I too have used it for more than 20 years and find it very versatile.
Not only wonderful on floors but also great on other surfaces too (do a patch test first to make sure it's safe)
I've used it on the dash & door vinyl in cars, worn kitchen bench tops, worn cork floor surfaces.
Yes, I found the shelves empty at Coles & Woollies, so thanks for telling me Bunnings stock it now.
ONE GO 'The best floor polish ever'
I can't get this anywhere! It was fantastic and only $5.00 ! My floors look crap now ! Bring it back! Iv tried all the others they are rubbish! They say they shine but they don't they are also much more expensive! One Go was a mirror shine and made my floors look brand new covered all the scratches and made my house look amazing ! Where can I get again please restock the Coles and Woolworths shelves with this amazing product!
A Rose By Any Other Name, Is Just As Sweet!
I can remember using this same product when i was a teenager, to seal stained leather work. It's the same type of liquid the class teacher used in class. It was then Know for many years as i seem to recall, as Fisher's Floor Polish. Same yellow bottle and label set out, same use instructions etc.. My mother used to use it on lino floors to put a great polish to the sealed surface, great for protecting it from 8 young children playing inside the house.. :)
I have just used this product exactly as per directions and my wonderful timber floor has been ruined with white streaks!!! The bottle says to use cloudy ammonia to remove these streaks, but on another web site they say not to use ammonia on timber floors. I have tried washing and washing the floor with vinegar and just timber floor cleaner, but nothing works. This product should be taken off the market.
Terrible product !
I thought I must have used it wrong because it went dull and white. But to try again I first had to remove the product... What a terrible job that was. Ok now start again and surprise surprise it went white and dull again. Still not giving up, I tried again and same results. I eventually had to believe that this product is ****. It leaves a build up which is terribly hard to remove and certainly not shiney! Not recommmended.
