Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott AMAZING!
Although it's not recommended for laminate floors, it worked wonders! Our renters moved out of our rental house and the floors were disgusting! They had a waxy dirty residue on them that was almost impossible to remove. I spent 1/2 a day cleaning the floors in the master bedroom with a scrub brush on my hands and knees and tried many different types of cleaners and degreasers and the floors were coming out relatively clean. I picked up a bottle of this stuff and finished the rest of the house in less time than I spent in just the master bedroom. I put it in a spray bottle and did a 6'X6' area or so at a time. I'd spray it on the floor and let it sit for 5 minutes or so. Then took a brush on a pole and worked it around a little bit. By the time I started working it around it was like I was pushing around puddles of muddy water (which was the residue coming off of the floor). After working it around with the brush I used a sponge mop and a bucket of clean water to soak up all of the nastiness that had been dislodged from the floor. The floors looked like new again! I went back over the master bedroom with a light coating to get off what my previous cleaning method had missed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LRob Awesome product....don't hesitate to try this.
My 25+ year old kitchen floor had years of dirty build up, and I really didn't have much hope for it. This stuff is amazing, though! It cut right through it and made a HUGE difference! It doesn't smell horrible either. I have a pretty large kitchen, so I did use almost two bottles, and it took me about 3 hours. I still need to use the Shine Keeper to bring some shine back to the floor, but that should be easy. Overall, extremely happy with this product!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Martin Works great !
I wish I had found this product years ago , it's amazing! The basement rec room , 400 sqft of black and white check commercial grade linoleum . I was faced with years of built up wax other cleaners claimed worked and failed. Then I found New Beginning stripper. I found what worked best was using a sponge to spread it thickly over 4 by 4 ft , let it work for 3 minutes then use a scrubber to work it up. The secret is to use a mop not a sponge to collect the old wax you just brought out, what a difference. I used 2 buckets where I constantly replaced water for a clean finish .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lu Brand new floor!
I used this on my Mom's 47 year old linoleum floor and it was amazing. Looks like she has a new floor!
The bottle says for no wax floors, but it worked great on the linoleum. Read someone else's suggestion and I had some old towels on hand, which worked well to help mop it up before I rinsed...Be sure and use some rubber gloves. I bought a couple jugs as it does take a little more than you think to do a kitchen floor. Was fun to use because the results were amazing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stylish a miracle product!
I was searching for something to clean my black and white linoleum tile in the kitchen. It was in good shape, but looked horrid. No amount of cleaning and scrubbing helped. I was ready to replace it before contacting Armstrong for advice. They suggested this product. I read the reviews and was hesitant due to the comments about the physical scrubbing involved. I forged ahead and bought some. I applied to the floor in an area about 2' square, then got distracted and forgot about it. What a wonderful way to find out that NO SCRUBBING was needed on this area, as I had inadvertently left it alone for about 15 minutes! Okay, so I did have to do some light scrubbing in corners and on some stubborn spots, which I did with a Scotch-brite green sponge/pad. I cannot tell you how happy I am with the results! There is no noxious odor and I didn't even use gloves, however, they are recommended. I realized the product would go farther if put in a spray bottle. The floor does have to be rinsed, but after the cleaning, I was left with a floor ready for a polish to be applied. If you have an old vinyl floor, give this a try. You have nothing to lose and a clean floor to gain!

This is a phenomenal vinyl floor stripper, without harming the vinyl. First used it 20 or so years ago, still works like a charm. This time my white floor (with small black squares) was so black-soiled in spots I had to take a scrubber brush to it after putting on the Amstrong, but it came out easiiy and completely white again. Even the yellowing from the floor wax of the original white disappeared. Amazing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gandg88 awesome product
The armstrong floor stripper is the only product I have found that will remove old wax & film off of a peel & stick linoleum floorwithout any damage. Product is a little strong, so would advise to use gloves, but does the job with little effort. Would definately reccommend this product for hard to clean kitchen floors that are high traffic areas!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RedBone59 This product is absolutely awesome!
I purchased this product after deciding that it was worth it to give it a try. I thought my kitchen and dining room floors were a lost cause. 10 years of wax build up made them look horrible and I was close to spending hundreds to replace them. It took some serious elbow grease but it was well worth the effort. My floors now look brand new. I won't be using any other product on my floors from now on. Be sure to use the floor finish after stripping. These 2 products are unbelievable!
