My son spilled a half bottle of nail polish on my linoleum and I did not see it until It had dried. I used BORAX (COMPLETELY NON TOXIC and you can find it at any grocery storei in the laundry section) and a scrubbing brush. CAME RIGHT UP and did not ruin the finish!!! I swear by Borax. == == try brake parts cleaner and a q-tip try fingernail polish remover or lighter fluid It has probably taken off the shine from that place on the floor. Check with your local flooring company to see if you can get a wax or polish to restore the floor's sheen.

There is a solvent that is marketed specifically for the purpose of removing nail polish, which is called nail polish remover. It works. Buy a bottle.

You shouldn't. Nail polish remover could damage your flute. I know because I spilled nail polish on my boyfriends *now husband* flute. and it got destroyed :(

How you can best clean up spilled polyurethane will depend on where it is spilled. If it is spilled on a laminate floor, rags dampened in mineral spirits will work well. If the spill is on concrete, paint thinner will clean it up.

You can clean plant sap off linoleum by using vegetable oil. Rub it on the sap and it will remove it. After that wash the floor with soap and water.

You can try a mixture of white vinegar and water to get white water marks off of linoleum. Use a scrub brush with the mixture to clean the area. If that does not work, clean the marks with toothpaste.

You simply just need to polish them. If that doesn't work, clean them or clean them then polish them.

No. Polish can be a verb, as in to polish a penny (clean or brighten a penny). Polish can be an adjective, as in "That man is Polish." Polish is used to describe people from Poland.

Linoleum flooring comes on a roll, can be cut to size and is a great alternative to carpets because it is easy to wash and keep clean. Prices of linoleum flooring vary greatly depending on the quality and supplier, so it is always a good thing to try the forums for linoleum flooring feedback before you start.

I have had this problem. I have discovered quite by accident that if you mix vinegar and water in a spray bottle and wait 2 -3 minutes and then wipe it with a paper towel your furniture polish will remove quite easily.

You can clean wax from the toilet seal ring off of linoleum by mixing a solution of hot water, ammonia and dishwasher soap in a bucket. Dip a mop into the solution and scrub the floor, then rinse with clean water and dry the floor with an old towel.

Yes, just use sparingly as it is full of harsh chemicals! If you need to clean up around your cuticles, dip a cotton swab in the bottle, apply it carefully, and wash off the nail polish remover with soap ASAP.

Linoleum is an excellent flooring for the kitchen. It is easy to clean, resistant to water damage, warmer underfoot than ceramic tiles and very reasonable in price.

You can clean sap off of linoleum with regular dish soap. With a solution of dish soap, water, elbow grease, and a scrub brush, you can generally remove the sap from the area. If that doesn't work, try one of the adhesive removers from your local store.

Use a metal polish like Wenol or Duraglit.

The word polish is a regular verb. Get a clean rag and polish the furniture. (polish = verb)Polish is also a noun. She covered the tabletop with furniture polish. (polish = noun)Not to be confused with the proper noun Polish.
