Floors that look new Some people seem to think there is no use trying to have smooth, clean, beautiful floors. Yet who ever saw a thoroughly satisfying house without them? Floors that keep looking like new are as easy to have as floors that get shabby. Have your floors finished with good varnish and they will smile. But be sure it is good varnish, because poor varnish is a lot of bother and doesn't last. Murphy Transparent Floor Varnish "the varnish that lasts longest" makes you realize how much beauty there is in the grain and color of natural wood. It will not scratch white and can be kept free from dust with a damp mop or cloth. But the great thing about it is the way it wears-long enough to put off for months the expense and annoyance of refinishing, and it looks well to the very end.
