The Restore4: Does It Work?

It is a professional restorer kit called the Restore4. The claim is big, "Don't replace it -- Restore it." For $40, you get different bottles that help you clean places all over your house. But, Does It Work?

We tested one of the bottles on a stained fiberglass tub. The direction say you can use it at full strength or dilute it. I figured since I was dealing with the toughest stains, I needed all the power I could get.

With a little elbow grease and rinsing, I did not get the restored tub I wanted. I sprayed it down again, this time leaving it on longer.

The next challenge was to remove scuff marks from a wood floor. I poured the oil-base liquid on a clean cloth and rubbed it into the problem area. The floor looked great! However, I will say it was like taking any furniture polish and applying it on scratched table tops. Regardless, the floor was improved.

Our third test was with Restore4 carpet cleaner. The car carpet we found had grease and coffee stains all over it. It was nasty! I just sprayed the Restore4 on the carpet and let it set for three minutes. I blotted...and blotted. The stains came out and the carpet looked 100x's better.

The fourth and final test was to remove hard water stains, calcium build-up, and water spots from my kitchen sink. I sprayed the hard water remover, scrubbed and rinsed. The results were nice. But I still saw calcium build-up on the faucet.

I thought I was done until I remembered the bathtub. I let the Restore4 Fiberglass solution set for more than 20 minutes. Although the tub looked better, I still had those stains.

For the most part, the Restore4 does work, but don't expect miracles to happen.
