How can I remove Hairspray buildup from my linoleum floors?

Help!! I have a lot of hairspray buildup on my bathroom floor. I need something that will help remove it. I've tried a floor stripper that our local carpet company sells, but it didn't help.

  • Shampoo works great. It's formulated to remove any buildup from your hair, and will do the same thing on your floors. Happy Cleaning.

  • hop down on the floor with a bucket of warm water ( 1 gallon) 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup baking soda and a couple teaspoons of lemon juice. take a scrub brush to it. this works on vinyl or tile. just make sure to rinse afterwards.

  • We have this problem too! I just get a bucket of hot water and a scrub brush. The hot water kindof melts the hairspray and the scrub brush gets it up off the floor.

  • Vinegar and baking soda - the best all natural cleaners EVER (see teri4lance's answer above).

  • HOT water, pine sol and a mop. Just keep changing the water or else you'll just keep putting it back on the floor.

  • Don't use too much pine sol or the floor will be sticky (like if you spill soap) and attract dirt. Use a couple of capfuls in a gallon or so of water.

  • Rubbing alcohol and a lite scrubbing.
