bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: MINWAX BLEND-FIL Stick


"Fills imperfections in wood surfaces after finish is applied" — that's what it says on the side of each stick.

I just removed three area rugs after 30+ years in situ on a dark oak-finished hardwood floor.

As you might expect, there were areas of wear on the floor that appeared lighter than the surrounding wood.

Application of #6 and #7 MINWAX Blend-Fil Sticks followed by deep rubbing with a soft old rag made those light areas disappear.


Thirty years of wear camouflaged by 10 minutes of elbow grease.


From $4.38.

P.S. I just realized I tend to photograph products near Gray Cat, as if she were a star athlete or supermodel endorsing them.

I'm sure she has disdain for me for doing this but I pretend I don't notice.
