What do you use on your interior flooring to make it "shine" without making it slippery?

Actually I was thinking about something along the lines of Pledge furniture polish but without the slipperiness.

A few years ago, the #1 response would have been Ultimate Sole. This was an outstanding product, but unfortunately it is no longer available.

These days, from what I understand, the only thing that's still on the market that comes close to Ultimate Sole is (I think I'm getting this right) GymSeal. Basically it's a finish for hardwood basketball courts. When you think about it, the properties you're looking for are very similar to those desired for a basketball court so it makes sense.

There used to be a product called 'Ultimate Sole'. It was a varnish with a wonderful gloss but didn't get slippery when wet. We've got it on our sole, and I liked the finish enough to use it on our table. When you wipe it with a damp cloth you can feel the 'grip'.

Unfortunately the company stopped producing it- but one might find some old stock somewhere... It does what you're looking for.

+1 for Ultimate Sole. Not sure where I will turn next time. GymSeal sounds like a logical choice but ironically that is not available any longer either!

If you are going to do it take te time and do it right. Requires multiple coats starting thinnned and decreassing thinning as you build up layers. Finish with 2 coast of high gloss poly uretheane.

( ulitmate sole was the best)

Ultimate Sole has been out of production for at least three years. Integrated Marine Systems was going to start production under license, but something happened to kill that deal. see this link; Integrated Marine Systems - Ultimate Sole

There is none to be had at any price.:(

I need it too!
