Floors > Vinyl Floors

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. To clean a vinyl floor, sprinkle Arm & Hammer Baking Soda on a damp sponge, wipe clean, and dry.

Arm & Hammer Clean Shower. Mop the vinyl floor with water, spray the floor with Arm & Hammer Clean Shower, and then mop it up.

Coca-Cola. To clean a grease stain from a vinyl floor, pour Coca-Cola over the stain, let sit for two hours, and mop it up. The phosphoric acid in Coke helps dissolve the grease stain.

Downy Fabric Softener. To clean a vinyl floor, pour one cap Downy Fabric Softener into a plastic bucket filled with hot water and mop the floor. Aside from giving the floor a fresh fragrance, Downy helps the mop lift dirt and dust.

Huggies Baby Wipes. Use Huggies Baby Wipes to mop up sticky messes, tempera paint, or crayon marks from a vinyl floor.

Procter-Silex Iron. To remove a vinyl floor tile, place a cloth over the tile and iron it with medium heat. The heat from the iron will soften the tile and the adhesive under it, making it easy to pry the tile from the floor with a putty knife.

Reynolds Wrap. To re-adhere a loose vinyl floor tile, place a sheet of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil on top of the tile and run a hot iron over it several times to melt the glue underneath the tile. Place several books on top of the tile to hold it securely in place until the glue dries completely.

20 Mule Team Borax, Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, and Par sons’ Ammonia. Add one-half cup 20 Mule Team Borax, one- half teaspoon Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, and one teaspoon Parsons’ Ammonia to two gallons warm water. Mop the floor with the solution.

Westley’s Whitewall Tire Cleaner. To clean a discolored vinyl floor tile, spray Westley’s Whitewall Tire Cleaner on the tile, scrub with a scrub brush, and rinse clean.
