Having trouble wiping out the stain? Choose the cost efficient tiled vinyl to replace old flooring. Here are some tips to forget about stains on the vinyl.
Firstly, make sure to use a white cloth, as colored fabric may stain your vinyl even more. Also, if you have a gas stove, make sure to turn off your pilot light as some of these solutions involve flammable chemicals. Wear rubber gloves! But don’t forget to test a floor on a hidden place first.
Here are some tips to remove stain from the floor:
- Bleach – For liquid stains such as fruit juice, tomato juice or wine, household bleach may do the trick. Mix one part bleach and two parts water. Soak a rag in the solution and lay the rag over the stain, letting it soak for however long is necessary.
- Oxalic Acid – For stubborn rust stains, use oxalic acid, which can also be labeled as “wood bleach.” Wet a rag with the solution, lay the rag on the stain and let it soak until you see the stain disappear.
- Isopropyl Alcohol – A good solution for removing shoe scuff marks from you vinyl floor. It’s often better known as “rubbing alcohol.”
- Laundry Detergent – Mixing powdered laundry detergent with water to create a white paste can be a less invasive way to remove difficult stains. Put paste on vinyl flooring and scrub.
