Thanks Septiembre and Cynthia7 as well. Yes, I AM in Mexico, and I must not be talking to the ones (here)who KNOW! Your recipe of motor oil is very appealing to me, but my partner hears the word WAX and freaks out that this will mean frequent maintenance; more and more wax applications taking us WAY back to "waxy buildup", yellowing, and work! One person here swears that if you simply have the saltillo mopped every day with Fabuloso, there will be a natural coating build up that has lustre, etc. We are resistant to such a rigorous approach , yet don't want the dust of leaving it untreated. Maybe the Downy or motor oil will win out. I will try a sample tile tomorrow.
One guy here tells of an Impregnador de Concreto (which is pricey) sold at Home Depot. Ingredients are not listed, but it does claim to have a silicone base but needs to be re-applied within three years. Anyone know of this stuff? I still want a natural treatment. Our Mexican crew seems to say that the old timers used NOTHING and made out okay, but we are seeing lots of dust in homes that try this. Anyone tried the Selador?
And anyone with firsthand Downy trials?
