Wooden floors treated with lyes or soaps maintain their original light wood shade. Even darkening due to the effect of light is prevented by these products. With this method, new, sanded softwood or hardwood floors are treated with the slightly white pigmented lye and then with wood soap.
This natural wood treatment is best suited for use on floors which see little traffic, e.g. bedrooms or guestrooms, as the product is only a little dirt-repellent.
AURO Lyes are available for coniferous wood and for hardwood. The soap is available in colourless or in a white pigmented versions.
