Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to give you some stain removal tips for linoleum. Depending on what color linoleum you have you may want to get brave and try to use bleach. I'm going to show you something else to do first before you go to bleach because it's toxic, it's bad for your family, you want to try some other stuff first. A great way to remove stains from anything including linoleum is with vinegar, just a splash, and baking soda, mix this up. It's kind of fun, it's like a science project, it bubbles , it makes a really foamy paste. Once you get this good pasty substance this is what you're going to use to remove any tough stains that are on your linoleum. Let me move this, I already have some that I stuck on the floor earlier. You want to really let it sit on top of the stain and if you put some plastic wrap over that if the stain is really bad and tape the sides around the plastic wrap, try to make it airtight, you can let that sit overnight. That's for really, really tough stains and it'll cook out the stain. Or you can just do this and grab a scrub brush and scrub it just like this. This works for stains on anything, clothes, floors, wood, it's really safe, really effective. So after that you want to do vinegar and water to you know just mop your floor with. If you have a white linoleum floor than consider yourself lucky because there's not so much elbow grease involved in that. Just soak a white rag in bleach and let it sit on top of the stain. That will bleach the stain out. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is some stain removal tips for linoleum.
