    One cup of lemon scented ammonia to one gallon hot water. Rinse and dry well. Do not let it sit too long. Laminate substrate swells when it stays wet

    Buy a can of Scrubbing Bubbles and it should come right off. Just give it a few minutes to work, before mopping. Do the floor in sections.

    I made that mistake and never again. Quick shine ruins floors. I got a plastic scraper and got on my hands and knees and scraped it all off. I kept a vacuum near so that I could vacuum up the residue. It is a very tedious job.

    Maybe one of the laminate cleaners at Home Depot would help. I like Zep products. Just do not wet the laminate because the edges will buckle.

    I would use one cup of PineSol to a gallon of warm soapy (Dawn) water and hand clean a swath of the floor at a time. Since it is laminate flooring, I would also dry the floor with old towels after the water mix. When the floor is completely dry, Jasmine, use more clean towels or old T-shirts to buff the floor in small sections at a time. This will remove any more water left behind as well as bring the shine back. This will take a lot of muscle grease, but the shine will last a long time. Best wishes!

    I used quickshine on my tile floors and they looked fantastic, for awhile. Now I have to pay $1200.00 to have my floors professionally stripped to get rid of the ugly mess. I’m extremely disappointed and upset . I can’t remove it myself due to physical limitations. I did try windex, let it sit for a minute or so and that does work. Quite well in fact.

    Ammonia did it easy for me!

    Quick Shine is the biggest nightmare I've ever used. This company should be sued for people putting this on their floors. Absolutely the worst stuff I've ever used. I've tried everything to get this stuff off. NOTHING WORKS!!!

    Ammonia, be sure the area is well ventilated, open the windows, put a fan on and wear gloves, rinse with water being careful to not get the floor wet any more than possible. It will get into the laminate and make the pieces swell.
