Killer Floor

ChanSeptember 9, 2003

I'm not really sure where to post this, but here goes: Mom used Pledge furniture polish and the overspray got on the linoleum floor. Now, it's as slippery as a skating rink (she's actually the one who found out...the HARD way!). She used a Swiffer Wet cloth, hot soapy water, and straight vinegar, but it's still slippery. What can we use on the to "un-slippery" the floor before someone else breaks a toe?

TIA,

Chan

Try a strong solution of warm water and ammonia. Anything that will strip wax ought to remove the Pledge.
