Zep floor wax on counter tops?

Has anyone tried Zep wax on a hard surface counter top? Results good bad?

My bathroom counter to is some sort of hard surface that is suppose to look like dark granite or slate. It never looks good unless wet. I am thinking of trying Zep wax on it.

Thanks Jeff,
I was out at the MH yesterday and took a closer look at the bath counter top, and it's really just the cheap plastic and particle board top( forgot what that's called) just looked real the way in was molded.

Yes I tried floor wax on laminate dining area counter top and dinette table. They were dull from age. Stripped it off after a few days. Water rings formed quite quickly.

What's up with this Zep product anyhow- Countertops- Exterior surfaces for a high gloss shine ? The buildups will have to be removed at some point -- sooner than later would be my guess.
For Corian counter tops I use Corian care and Polish-- works great.
For my Exterior I use Wax on and Wax off method.

Zep is an acrylic floor product- no wax in it.

No water marks, in other words. Hard bright finish like all acrylics and removable with Zep Stripper. It would last quite well on your countertops.

Think I'll give it a try. Already brought it anyway to do the front and rear cap. Who know's when I'll get around to doing that. The counter top won't take any time to do. Will post pic once done.

I do this for a living. It is a total PITA to get it off. Just leave it as is. Sometimes you can use car wax and a buffer on certain counters. Just test a small area but never any kind of wax..

I use Gel Gloss on my Corian 2--3 times a year. Provides a gloss and prevents stains.

I don't really understand either. It's called "floor wax" for a reason. Maybe it should be called "use on anything and everything and deal with the consequences later".

Update; as I said earlier I was mistaken, and I have the cheap laminate countertops in the bath, not the solid surface. Well I did four coats of Zep on it today.

First two pictures are the before.

Others are the after. Hard to see because of the lighting, but I could not ask for better results. I will update again if it dose not hold up.
