What is the best vinyl floor cleaner?

Vinyl’s durability and resilience to stain and moisture make it a popular choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and high-traffic areas. To clean your vinyl floor, first vacuum, sweep, or dry-mop. The only vinyl floor cleaner you may ever need is an inexpensive product you already have: liquid dish soap or an all-purpose cleaner dissolved in water. If it is a no-wax floor, it may dry with a film; simply mop it again with white vinegar diluted with water.

You may need to use a commercial product for heavy-duty cleaning; check the manufacturer’s instructions or a store that sells vinyl flooring.

When choosing a vinyl floor cleaner, do not use detergents, abrasive cleaners, or “mop and shine” products –they may dull your floor. And never use paste wax or solvent-based polishes. Wipe up spills as soon as possible; certain substances, such as ink, mustard, permanent marker, hair dye, and asphalt products, may not be entirely removable from your vinyl floor. Try rubbing alcohol first, then mineral spirits or turpentine on a clean white cloth.
