Full Answer

Armstrong Once ‘n Done Resilient & Ceramic Floor Cleaner is a powerful cleaner for unwaxed vinyl flooring. It does not require rinsing and does not form a film on the vinyl. This product is also safe for use on marble, terrazzo, granite and slate floors.

A simple, non-toxic alternative to commercial vinyl floor cleaner is 1 cup of diluted apple cider vinegar mixed with a gallon of warm water. This no-rinse solution is particularly effective on vinyl tile. Stubborn grime not removed with this method usually responds well to rubbing alcohol, according to SF Gate. Adding a small amount of liquid dish soap to the diluted vinegar also increases its cleaning power. However, floors treated with this solution must be thoroughly rinsed.
