Orange Glo is so easy to apply. I have a shark steamer so I always start with a clean spot free floor. Simply squirt the Orange Glo out over a 4 x 4 foot area and spread it out with a clean damp wet cloth. I use the Orange Glo mop and pad and this really makes the job quick and painless. The directions state that it takes 15 minutes to dry but my floors are always completely dry in less time. With dogs and cats not wanting to stay off the floors for long the quick dry works well for our family. If one of the animals do happen to walk over a spot before it completely dries I just go over the little paw prints real quick and you can't tell that spot was a "re-do" . I love the smell and the beautiful shine that Orange Glo leaves. It makes the room smell so clean and fresh. Although it doesn't cover deeper scratches it does a good job at covering the smaller ones. I have probably used over twenty bottles of this since we put laminate floors down about two years ago. I don't have anything negative to say about it, even the price is reasonable.
