Restoring Linoleum Floors

Q: We have top of the line Armstrong linoleum in our kitchen. It is nine years old. The lino has lost its shine on the heavy traffic areas. I have only used a combination of vinegar and water to clean the floor over the past nine years. This lino is in excellent condition other than the loss of shine. Are there any products that we can use to bring back the shine and make it look like new again?

A: The type of product that you are requesting is not available in the average Building Supply or Flooring store. What you require is a product called Floor Restorer. Look for it where the floor maintenance people buy their products in your area.
