Kirk photo Too Much Care May End Life of Linoleum Ames—If the linoleum on the kitchen floor has been getting the "once-over" every day, its owner might well check on protective measures to substitute for her expensive energy. Frequent well-intentioned scrubbing with soap and water can actually ruin linoleum, says Naomi Shank, Iowa State college home management specialist. Most soaps for general cleaning contain alkali substances which attack the oil in the linoleum, causing it to become dry and crumbly. Moisture which seeps underneath often rots the backing. More linoleum, says Miss Shank, is worn away by scrubbing brushes and cleaning powder than by the steps the family takes. Care to prolong the life of linoleum should start early. A wax finish is usually given at the factory. Sometimes new linoleum has an oily film. Before cleaning it read carefully the manufacturer's directions on care and upkeep. But if no suggestions are given, suggests Miss Shank, clean the linoleum with a damp cloth and neutral soap, dry and then wax. Use a water emulsion wax. It's easy to apply and less slippery than the older types. You'll need to apply a new coat oftener in those areas where the linoleum is wiped at intervals with a damp cloth. Old linoleum may need a 2nd coat applied 30 minutes after the 1st. Don't use varnish or lacquers, Miss Shank warns, unless the floor covering is nearing the end of its usefulness. Cleaning, once you've waxed becames a mere matter of using a brush or dust mop and wiping now and then with a damp cloth Use warm water, and just enough to give results. When there's an accumulation of old wax, or an especially stubborn spot to remove use a mild abrasive. A neutra" soap with powdered pumice stone is good. Remember, Miss Shank points out, casters on heavy furniture cut into linoleum unless they're placed in wide-bottomed shoes.
