Ceramic tile? If so then try vinegar. If it's vinyl tile then you can pick up floor stripper from Sam's Club or Costco and follow the directions on the package.

Ammonia! Mix half & half with water, use a very wet mop, let sit a minutes, voila! Wax all gone! Make sure to have lots of ventilation and do NOT mix with bleach!

Use AquaMix Heavy Duty Tile and Grout Cleaner, available at most floor covering stores or possibly at Lowe's or Home Depot. Follow directions carefully! Then, use Armstrong Once N Done to clean your tile, never anything that will "coat" your floor.


If you want to protect your grout, use Sealer's Choice Gold (kind of expensive, but you'll only have to do it once every few years). It is great and you just "paint" your grout lines -- grout only, not tile.

My husband had just installed vinyl plank flooring in parts of our home. He decided to surprise me and shine it up with Mop n Glo. Disaster! It left permanent mop marks and easily spots and scratches. What can I safely use to remove this?

Here are a few things you can try.

  1. Mix one cup of vinegar with a gallon of water and mop your floors. Afterwards, rinse the floors with water. If you are still seeing a build up repeat the moping with vinegar a second time.
  2. Ad

  3. If the vinegar solution doesn't work, try adding 1/2 cup of baking soda to one gallon of water. Mix well and make sure the baking soda is dissolved. With a clean mop and a clean bucket of water, mop your floor again. If you are using the same mop to mop your floor you will need to make sure the mop is clean and there is no baking soda left in the mop.
  4. If the first two options didn't work you will need to use ammonia to clean the floor. Mix 2 cups of ammonia with one gallon of water. Use a soft scrubbing pad or a nylong scrub brush. You will need to scrub the floor to remove the residue from the mop and glow. It is suggested that you test this mixture on an area of the floor first to make sure it doesn't damage your floor. If it is fine use this to clean the rest of your floor. After scrubbing you will need to wash the floor with clean water.

I have question about rubberized based with thin wood looking top kitchen flooring. I don't know if it's actual rubber or just what type of material? This floor has been in a kitchen for close to 35 years or so and has had approximately the same amount of years of Mop & Glo applied to it from the time it was put in. As far as the owners know has never been stripped.


I am looking for a way of keeping the floor clean, and give it a shine "naturally" without leaving any type of layer or residue behind that could be scratched, marred or scraped by seats or chairs sliding across it or even a large dog romping and running across it and skidding leaving its nail marks on it. Is there any such way cleaning and shining a wood looking for that wouldn't leave a layer behind that a dogs nails would leave scrapes and scratches in it?
