Several years before we moved into our current home, some crazy person put white linoleum on the kitchen floor. Having five children in the house makes it impossible to keep looking tidy. Even when freshly scrubbed, it still has tennis shoe scuff marks and mysterious color patches stubbornly refuse my best efforts at scrubbing them up.
Then I watched the BBC's How Clean Is Your House? I love that show!!!! it always makes me feel a bit better about my own poor housekeeping skills and they always have such great tips. Today's brilliant tip (I just had to share) was using toilet bowl cleanser (like Comet)to clean linoleum floors. Guess what? It's brilliant! It was the easiest floor washing I've ever done, and got rid of all the marks which I had accepted as permanent.
Hooray for the British cleaning ladies, but please don't send them to my house.
