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.

Oh my, I am so glad to know this! Who knew?!? Well, you, I guess. 😉
This is awesome, I think I know what I am doing once I get home from work today!
It really is such an easy fix, those scratches on my floor are yet to reappear!
