If they do, it's time for a refinishing job. Sound hard? It's not if you do it right. * * * If your floors are really in bad shape you should probably rent a floor sander and refinish -them completely. Most floors, however, don't need a complete refinishing. * * * Let's concentrate on floors that don't need a complete refinishing job. The floor should be thoroughly washed with a good cleaning compound to remove all dust, wax, grease and soil. If you want to remove the old finish, use SUPERMIX No-Wash remover for a really slick job with a minimum of work, * * * Allow the floor to dry. Fill all cracks (SUPERMIX Crack Filler does a swell job). Worn spots should be touched up with wood stain to match the rest of the surface. Cover these spots with a thin coat of varnish ahead of the first coat. % * * * After the surface has been properly prepared, apply one or two coats of SUPERMIX 4-Hour Varnish or SUPER- MIX Plasti-Film Varnish. Allow 24 hours drying time between coats, * * * If you want an enamel finish, you can't find a better one than SUPERMIX Floor Enamel. Thin the first coat about one-fourth with turpentine. The final coat should be applied as it comes from the' can. If you use three coats, the,second should also be thinned a little. * t * * Before you start the job — no matter what kind of a paint job it is - come in and talk it over with us. We can probably save you time and money. STOEBER HARDWARE FENTQN, IOWA OUR a ULJN HARDWARE Your Home Town Paint Headquarters Here is a good bwy this weefe; PAINT POT v ^ h , Be World Day of Prayer.
