I struggled with my laminate flooring becoming smeary after a few years of use in a household with three cats and two greyhounds all of whom must have sticky feet. The only way I could get the floors looking decent was to handwash and hand towel them dry. I did not have the energy nor the time to do all the floors! I bought the Orek and now spray a very dilute mix of vinegar and water very lightly on the floor and use this white polish pad. It cleans them up and leaves them shiny. If I want them extra posh, I follow up with a sheepskin bonnet, but this is the cleaning pad that does the heavy lifting. At first I had to do this once a week, but now that I have the floors polished back to their original laminate minus the sticky dirt, I need only do it about once a month relying on my automatic vacuum cleaners to keep them looking good in between.
Works well - easy to keep our wood floors looking like new. A little water and buffing is usually all that's needed to keep the floor looking great.
When the pads get dirty, I spray a little liquid soap on them and wash them off with my power-washer. This way we can get a number uses out of them before they clog up.
If you are looking for a quality floor pad, stick with the 3M brand. They out-last the competitors. This pad is good for buffing wood floors or tiled floors that are very lightly scuffed. If you need a really good buffing, use the red 3M pad. This one won't be abrasive enough for a really scuffed floor.
