loose lay vinyl???
 
I just installed some loose lay vinyl in my kitchen - when moving the refrigerator back in, in one corner slid across the floor. Now there is a wrinkle/crease on our 1 day old vinyl.....is there any way to repair this? If I roll it back and glue it down, do you think that will help?

Yes . Never been a fan of loose lay .

When you get the fridge back to the hole it goes in , spray a little Windex behind the wheels .
She'll slide in like it was on ice . wipe up the Windex.

Hey Doc,

The Windex trick has piqued my curiosity too.

And yes, loose lay sucks, but they're very popular since they require less substrate prep making the installation cheaper.
