How to Clean Linoleum

Go Gentle on Linoleum

Linoleum is tough enough for the muddiest of boots and messiest of spills, but requires a gentle cleaner. Pine-Sol® fits the bill — and tackles the mess.



Dilute ¼ cup Pine-Sol® to a gallon of water.


Wipe those dirty floors down with the solution using a mop or sponge. Be sure not to allow the solution to pool; you should never let linoleum get too wet.


Scrub tougher stains and scuffs with full-strength Pine-Sol® and a scrubbing brush, then rinse with water.

Use Pine-Sol® instead of ammonia-based cleaners to clean linoleum, which can break down the material and cause cracking.


Try Pine-Sol® Tropical Flowers to clean linoleum floors for a breeze of fresh air in your hallway, or Pine-Sol® Lemon Fresh in your kitchen.
