Has anyone used restorz-it

I’m redoing my kitchen a DIY kind of thing. I was going to sand and paint my current cabinets but I started reading about “restorzit “. Has anyone here used it before? Sounds great but does it work ?

Thank you in advance

Restorz-It had great reviews so I decided to try it on a couple of cabinets and see how it worked. It was good. There were 6 cabinets with more "wear" around the knobs that had to be cleaned and prepped more than all the others, but that's to be expected (sink area and high use cabinets). Still, it worked with just a little extra effort.

Restorz-It filled in the scratches with the coloring agent and the overall sheen is awesome. By the way, it comes in three color choices, depending on your wood finish. If we replaced the vanity with a new one, it would have cost over $600! My $60 was well spent and a lot less of a hassle compared to removing the old one and installing the new one.

I own a home in the high desert of Utah where the sun and heat can eat wood alive. When I tried restorzit the first time I followed the instructions and had just ok success. But the second time I used it like a rub in oil treatment. Apply, rub in, then clean cloth remove. The finish has been remarkable.

Restorz-It. They have a cleaner to use first, then apply the Restorz-It, which is supposed to make the wood look new. ... I had read all those reviews and several others...the bad ones scare me...I sure don't want to have a bad time with that product and make this job harder...so, I still don't know if I will use it...that is why I came here ..

I suggest… use a degreaser on the cabinets.
Light sand with 000 grade steel wool. Tack the surface with microfiber cloth. Apply product. Allow to dry for 24 hrs. Buff with microfiber cloth.

The results were phenomenal. Brought back the sheen and filled scratches. They look brand new.
Give extra attention (sanding) to any water damages spots; just enough to open the grain. May require more than one application. The color is almost buildable.

Too much info? LOL

If you choose to misinterpret the guidelines here that’s up to you.

Speeding up on the yellow light isn’t what you’re supposed to do. But plenty do it

It also probably doesn't work well in other cases. With all such products it's crucial to read everything in the instructions for use, preferably before buying the product. For example, if your cabinets have a finish that is incompatible with the product, that product will not give you the results you want. That will be explained in the product instructions and you should pay close attention to that.

Like all products of that nature, too, preparation of surfaces is also critical. The instructions will tell you what you should do before using it. If you don't pay attention to and follow those instructions closely, you will not get the results you want.

With most products, if you visit the website of the manufacturer, you'll find the complete instructions for its use on that site. Before buying a product, you should read them all and assess the suitability of the product for your specific situation.

Most product failures come from a failure of the user to read, understand, and follow the instructions. That's your responsibility, so if you're disappointed with the results and didn't do those things, don't be surprised. The manufacturer wants you to succeed. It doesn't want you to fail to be satisfied. That's why that information exists and should be understood and followed to the letter.
