Textured vinyl floors spray: Vinyl floors have a habit of getting sticky with the combination of moisture and grime that accumulates in bathrooms. If they are a textured vinyl, that grime gets caught in the little valleys and can seem impossible to clean with a surface wipe. Avoid using vinegar on vinyl floors, since the acid will eat away at the protective coating on the floor, making it even tougher to clean in the future. It’s tempting to use a scrub brush to really get into the grime here, but a scrub brush will do the same thing as vinegar—damage the protective coating of the vinyl and make the surface harder to clean in the long run.
Mix the warm water and castile soap in a 16-ounce spray bottle. Spray the floor in small sections with warm water mixture. Sprinkle liberally with baking soda. Spray with hydrogen peroxide. Let sit for 20–30 minutes. Use the texture of the washcloth to really work the mixture into the crevices in the floor. Then you’ll want to use a clean rag to mop up the mixture and wipe the surface clean. Use a mixture of hot water and dish soap to do one final scrub, then wipe with a rag dipped in hot water. Let dry thoroughly.
Extra Tip: Try this on textured shower stall floors with stubborn grime, too. Since those are likely vinyl or acrylic, go ahead and use a stiff scrub brush to work into the grooves and texture.
