My Vinyl floors had gotten so grimy over the years, that I thought I was going to have to replace them. Then I found out about a neat tip, that got them sparkling clean and it was so easy! I used a cleaning product that most people probably already have, but not one made for floors! Want to know what it is? It's Scrubbing Bubbles! I have the full details on my blog. http://thegraphicsfairy.com/my-secret-tip-fo...

    I saw a post today for cleaning kitchen cabinets. Soft Scrub, with lemon. It says lemon on the bottle. I like Lysol Bathroom Cleaner for tough dirt and scum. Spray and walk away for ten minutes, then clean.

    Try arm & hammer scrub free. Contains bleach, works great on kitchen cabinets, greasy stoves, countertops, have to try it on the floor. It's non aerosol.

      Becky Y Try an armstrong floor cleaner called "Once and Done". Apply it straight in a 3'x3' section, let it sit for ~5 min, take a scrub brush (or your hand in a rubber glove) and rub. Then

    Scrubbing bubbles is great for hair spray build up on your bathroom floor. Open the windows and after it's clean I would give go over it with just water a few times to remove odor.

    I vacuum up the loose stuff, then go over it with the Shark Steam mop. Amazing!

    WD 40 is an excellent way to remove any stubborn build up. WD 40 is basically fish oil.
