How To Clean Vinyl Floors In The Kitchen

by Connie

Connie shared this tip for how to clean vinyl floors in the kitchen on Stain Removal 101's Facebook page.

These ideas were shared in response to the article where I answered the question of whether you could safely use a Magic Eraser when cleaning floor linoleum.

Connie says:

While I have not used a Magic Eraser on my vinyl kitchen floor, I DO use baking soda and an e-cloth (microfiber cloth) with really good results.

For the more stubborn areas I often also use a nylon pot scrubber (the kind that can even be used on Pyrex, etc.) with the baking soda and use my feet instead of my hands to scrub -- for extra scrubbing pressure.

Taylor says:

Thanks so much for these tips for how to clean vinyl floors Connie.

I'd love to hear from even more people sharing how they do it, both for regular cleaning and for stubborn stains and spills.

Plus, I'm starting to hear some really good things about these e cloths, but I haven't gotten a review of them yet. You can share your cleaning cloth review here, if you've used this or another brand of microfiber cloths for cleaning areas of your home.

I use ammonia
by: GG

I wanted to add that ammonia is GREAT for cleaning vinyl flooring. You'd have to be very careful to have good ventilation (and wear a mask if it's still to strong) and keep pets and kids away! I use it full strength, pouring about a cup directly on the floor and using a sponge mop to spread around. Do a few segments of the floor, then go back and pick up the dirty leftovers, rinse the mop well and continue. There may be many manufacturer's solutions that are easier, but ammonia is cheap and VERY effective.
