Transcript A | JAP-A-LAC—THE ORIGINAL FTER TREATING your floors in this manner, we recommend a finishing coat of the Natural, or Clear JAP-A-LAC, if you are desirous of obtaining an extra fine job. It will also give you the most durable finish which could possibly be put on a floor,and it is surprising how easily a floor of this kind is kept clean. | A MODEL FLOOR | One of the most practical and best finishes for an old, disfigured floor is obtained by securing the services of a practical painter, and allowing him to apply two coats of light straw-colored paint on the floor, then grain it in oak graining colors, and finish it with two coats of the Natural or Clear JAP-A-LAC. This gives you a perfect imitation of an Oak Hard Wood Floor at a very trifling cost, but to insure' durability, you must insist upon his using our Natural JAP-A-LAC for his finishing coats. In order to keep floors of this kind in good condition, we recommend them to be scoured at least once a year with Sapolio and Water, and a light coat of Natural JAP-A-LAC applied over them to renew the varnish which has naturally worn somewhat from constant use. Floors thus cared for will wear and look well a lifetime. I AFEW DON'TS | DON' T let your finish wear through to the wood by neglect. Floors which are used constantly should have a light coat of Natural or Clear JAP-A-LAC applied once in six months, or in a year, according to the wear to which they are subjected. DON'T use strong alkali, such as potash, lye, ammonia, soda, borax, etc. For cleaning Floors use Ivory Soap and water, or, better still, clean them with skimmed milk or paraffine oil. The latter makes a splendid dressing. DON'T use JAP-A-LAC over shellaced floors without first removing the shellac, for shellac prevents the oil in the varnish from penetrating the wood, thus making a brittle finish. DON'T use shellac on floors, for it dries hard and eventually becomes brittle and crumbles, and is very hard to remove, while, on the other hand, JAP-A-LAC always remains elastic. DON' T use JAP-A-LAC on a wax floor without first removing all the wax with Turpentine, as Varnish will not dry over a wax or greasy surface. DON'T revarnish a floor until you have first washed it thoroughly with Sapolio and water and allowedit to dry. DON'T use wax on a floor, as it requires constant attention and makes a slippery and treacherous floor; it is only fit for ball-room floors. DON' T let people talk you into using anything but JAP- A-LAC on your Floors. DON'T forget to tell your friends about JAP-A-LAC after you have become acquainted with it. Note:—We also put up our Natural or Clear Jap-a-lac in five-gallon sealed cans at $2.25 per gallon for the benefit of those desiring to use it in quantities. We should prefer you to buy from retailers, but if you know of no dealer who sells this finish, we shall be pleased to fill your orders direct. THE GLIDDEN VARNISH COMPANY CLEVELAND, OHIO
