I am hoping someone more saavy than myself will have a suggestion for removing the greasy, slippery residue from my wood laminate floor. I used Murphy's Oil Soap to mop it as it states on the label that it is safe - but alas, instead my floor looks and feels like butter was spread on it!
I have tried vinegar and water, ammonia and water, straight windex, orange glo degreaser, dawn dish soap and water, fabuloso and water, comet cleanser and prayer (and water). Nope, still sticky! Is there some stone unturned? Help please!
If vinegar and baking soda (either seperately or together) don't remove it's likely not a biodegradable substance, it is oil based and/or likely synthetic.
So, your focus should be on the harder chemicals that are designed to dissolve engine grease and various things like toilet-ring wax. I'd take a small area and try sovlents such as paint thinner and something along the lines of goo-gone and other substances that are suggested for use to remove the wax of a toilet ring. (The cleaner that my husband uses in his mini spray-gun is fabulous for this)
If those don't work then consider sealer dissolver and grout removal substances.
Problem you might find is that the finish on the surface might come off. However, that might actually already be happening and the substance on your floor (if you don't know what it is, already) is from it dissolving and breaking down into it's liquid form.
At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.
