That is, if you really mean linoleum.Ammonia is one of the worst things you can use on it.On the other hand, if you meant to say vinyl flooring, then ammonia is the way to go. Many people make the error of using the terms "vinyl flooring" and "linoleum" interchangeably. They are actually 2 very different materials, made of entirely different ingredients, different characteristics, differences in installation, adhesives,cost, maintenance,wearability,availability,environmental issues,etc. Very few homes nowadays have linoleum flooring, it hasn't been manufactured in the United States for many many years. It can be imported from Europe, thru Armstrong for one, and is used mostly in commercial bldgs now, and also as a countertop and tabletop material, unlike vinyl. So for accuracy, I suggest we only use the term linoleum when we really mean it. No offense Jim, this just happened to be the most recent case of something thats been buggin' me for a while.
