Vinyl Sheet Flooring Feels Slimy?

I moved into a rental where the flooring hadn't been changed in over 25 years. I have tried different cleaning methods, but after they dry my floor feels slimy. I have tried rinsing with steaming hot water, but it's still slimy. I should also mention that I have 2 small dogs so I can not use anything harmful.

Try vinegar or baking soda. Mr. Clean eraser should work, too.

Apparently, vinyl oozes some sticky oil-type substance when it ages. This link provides some tips on how to clean it: "Vinyl is a popular material for many different types of products, but over time can tend to ooze an oily, sticky substance on the surface. Sometimes this sticky residue can be cleaned away with a simple cleaner and other times requires drying out the sticky substance first."

this other site recommends that you use ammonia to cut out the grease, and then clean it up again. This would only work of course if you let your dog stay somewhere else for a few days: www.doityourself.com/.../how-to-mop-vinyl-floors-without-leaving...
