Dear Chicago House,
You do have some beautiful hardwood floors, I didn't really understand the fuss realtors made of them until I had them. Now I am smitten.
Yours are generally in very good condition...apart from one spot in the living room which I think must have been damaged by the moving guys when your previous owner moved out. Here they are annoying scratched.
But I remember reading once about a simple fix ...rub the scratches with a walnut. Now I didn't have any whole nuts in the house...just a packet of walnut pieces I occasionally use while baking, but they worked a treat.
Here is the same floor just two minutes later ... nearly perfect
Now I thought this may be a five minute wonder and the scratches would reappear ...but three weeks later and the floor still looks scratch free.
Long may they continue looking fab.
