Floors: Linoleum
 
 

linoleum

 

Save money on linoleum floors by keeping them looking good as long as possible.  Never use a harsh detergent, like ammonia, on a linoleum floor.  It will remove the shiny surface.  Use a gentle, thrift friendly cleaner like vinegar.  Apply it to the floor and let it sit 20 minutes.  It will loosen the grim that gets in the creases of the floor.
