    Can street shoe be used on a wood kitchen counter safely? If not can any of your other products? I plan to use over tykote.

      Hi Jeanne,

      Yes – Mike actually has Street Shoe on a butcher block table that is wearing very well. Keep in mind that a full chemical cure takes two weeks before you can start getting wet and using cleaner on it.
