After 60 + years, we finally ripped up the lineoleum in the kitchen.
GrandmasHouseDIY on Dec 06, 2017Lynn I am so sorry to tell you that when I ran into that same stuff when I ripped up the linoleum on our 100 year old hardwood floors that I never found a real solution :( I ended up just scraping up what I could and then going through ALOT of 40 grit sand paper. Good luck!Helpful Reply
Pam on Dec 06, 2017You might try renting a floor sander.Helpful Reply
Emily on Dec 06, 2017When I was a kid (I am now 83) we moved into a house where my Dad did this but luckily the person who laid that linoleum had thought to put newspapers under it. . .come to think of it the linoleum I remember was not glued but laid because I kept those newspapers. (historical significance) Sounds like a difficult job ahead of you.Helpful Reply
