Vinyl floors are often found in kitchens and bathrooms. Vinyl is usually sold in large sheets and is produced to look like ceramic tiles, or hardwood floors or stones like slate. One of the nice things about vinyl flooring, besides being cheap and simple to install, is that it's easy to clean. Because vinyl floors are often found in kitchens, they're stained often with food and drinks. Removing stains, like those that come from salt, is a simple task.
Things You'll Need
- Scrub brush
- Duster mop
Scrub the salt stains with your hard-bristled scrub brush. Use a back-and-forth motion with firm pressure. This will help to break up any crusted salt. Because you will be on your hands and knees you may want to put a cushion or a towel under your knees.
Mop over the area that you just scrubbed with your duster mop. The duster mop will trap loose salt into its fabric head.
Go over the area with a vacuum.
Fill your bucket with warm water and vinegar. Add one part vinegar to two parts water.
Dip the mop into the bucket and wring out. If the mop has extra moisture left in it, the water will pool on the vinyl floors. This will make the floors look dirty.
Mop the vinyl floors using a quick back-and-forth motion. Remember to rinse the mop often. Allow the floors to air dry. Vinegar acts as a natural polish for vinyl floors.
