            Q:Can I use the Robert Waxed Paper Underlayment for Wood Flooring ON TOP OF the hardwood floor to protect it from a vinyl exercise mat that is being placed on top of it for an elliptical machine? I have read that rubber mats can ruin hardwood floor due to a chemical reaction with the finish of the hardwood floor, and I am worried that the same thing might occur with a vinyl rubber mat unless there is something between it and the hardwood floor.
