How Can I Make My Laminate Floors Shine?

Question Tags:

Is there a product I can use to make my laminate floors shine?  I don't plan to replace them anytime soon, but feel like they've lost their luster.

The Money Pit Answer

You unfortunately can't add much more shine to laminate than what it's finish was intended to provide - or at least not permanently.  For example, If you purchased laminate floors with a matte finish, there's no changing them to a high gloss finish. 
If you're looking for a pick-me-up before hosting guests or taking photos, though, there are products that provide temporary laminate floor luster - similar to how Armor All adds temporary shine to your car's tires.  Just make sure you choose a product designed specifically for laminate, and not for vinyl or some other type of flooring.  Useing the wrong product could result in cloudy finishes or other unexpected results.
