    so I've just removed a couple of yrs worth of wax buildup on my kitchen tiles. they are ugly commerical type tiles- suppose to hide dirt, anyway now I need to seal them and after stripping (by using a scraper and elbow grease) I didn't have enough 'floor shine' so right now it's all clean but...

    I'm thinking about new floor mats for my car, but I do not want to throw out the old ones. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you and Happy Holidays! Melissa

    and I don't mean dirt ;) Ceramic? Vinyl? Wood? Something else? Do you like what you have? Is it easy to clean, easy on the legs and feet, does it look good? I always hate the way dirt seems to stick to vinyl, and it can get ripped if you aren't careful. I'd love tile, but hear it's hard...

    We painted our sons room and there are dry paint spots on the floor... I know some of them can be scraped up but some look like they were stepped in and spread around the room.. those won't come up with a scrapper... I have some goof off and could use that but it smells so bad and you really...

  6. Question and Answer
    We have a Labrador who sloshes water out of her bowl when she drinks. This has cause some of the vinyl flooring to come up and expose the sub floor. Not a good thing. How can we keep the floor dry. When you have a "constantly getting a drink and spilling" dog. She isn't tipping the bowl just...

    won a $100.00! Yippeee! I don't know if it really worked or not but I'm keeping it off the floor from now on! Any one else having any luck?

    A friend told me te other day that it was bad luck for me to leave my purse/work bag on the floor, that all my money would fall out of my life. This almost sounds logical, something about respecting your money. Is anyone up for an experiment? For two weeks never let your purse touch the floor...

    So. It's approximately 12:50 or so. I'm on my bed, kind-of-sort-of attempting to sleep. My bed is one of those "inflatable/adjusting beds". It's on a weird platform system. One of my cats is insistent that he needs to be pet RIGHT NOW. So I sit up and pet him. He's on my shoulder at this point...

    Ok we have linolemun floor in the kitchen that had ground in dirt and soot. I have tried everything I can think of(bleach, vinegar, baking soda and vinergar) and nothing has made it look clean. Is there anything else I can try? Hubby hates that even after mopping the floor still looks dirty and...

    I ordered one of these a few weeks back, and have now had the chance to try it out on both hardwood, laminate, linoleum, and carpet. I have been reading here about the Swiffer (tried it and hated it) and about rug-cleaning systems. I have to say that this little H20 Mop is GREAT!! It is a...

    Anyone have a ballpark figure on cost for this? We have hardwood all downstairs, except for the bathroom & living room. At some point we're going to put it down in the living room, but we also want to get the other room's floors refinished. TIA :)
  13. Question and Answer
    The man that lived here before us DESTROYED the linoleum's finish in our kitchen. I have scrubbed it and even waxed it a few times. Any suggestions to make it look not so dull for more than 1 day?

    A friend of mine- Ms. Spendthrift, took the day out of work to meet with the floor washing men. :ponder: "Floor washing men?" Whatever for? She was paying these men $1200 to wash her grout and paint it white then seal it. :shake: Thanks for the tip- my friend! :crackup: I went to...

    I am interested in possibly getting a floor steam cleaner but have not heard any reports from users on how well they work or don't work. I saw one at Lowe's for the Shark Hard Surface Cleaner But again I...

    We're renting so I can't put a lot of money into it, but I want to make it as liveable and as easy to clean as possible since we'll probably be here at least another year or 2. It's wood parquet floor and it's very scuffed and scratched up, there's gaps between the tiles, and it absorbs...

    Like a basement, or converted porch? Our living room is a converted front porch that tends to get water seeping under the door. As a result, the carpet is moldy - YUCK! I am hoping to pull up the carpet and somehow paint the floor so that if any more water comes up, it won't be as big of a...

    I used to have a recipe for a homemade floor stripper, I know it had liquid laundry soap, non-sudsing amonia and water in it, but I forgot the amounts of each. Does anyone know the formula? It works great and my kitchen and bath need doing deperately! TIA :smhelp:
