Vinyl is a neat product. It is versatile, inexpensive, and comes in every color and texture you can think of. The problem arises when you want to figure out how to polish vinyl to return it to its original gleam and shine. That can pose quite a challenge.

Vinyl has been around for a long time. And theres almost nothing that cannot be made of this rather astonishing stuff. It has been used to make records (remember vinyl?), imitate wood for flooring and lots of other every day uses. It is really a plastic made from resins. That is how it can be shaped in to so many products and also why it is so durable. At the same time, it is plastic and so plenty of things can damage, scratch or otherwise harm its surface. Properly cared for, vinyl products can literally last a lifetime.

Harsh products or abrasives like sandpaper, steel wool and other similar materials can really ruin your vinyl. Be sure to always treat it with a little TLC to ensure that it lasts a long time and always looks its best. Generally, just a light wipe will keep your vinyl products looking great. Once in a while, though, you may want to really polish and shine your vinyl surface. When you do that, it can really pop, especially vinyl flooring.

Surprisingly, even though vinyl is a specialized product made up of chemical resin, ordinary household cleaners can be used to clean it. There are also commercial products that have been created especially to clean your vinyl. You may prefer to use these products over the home made cleaner that you can find on this website. Whichever way you choose to go in order to keep your vinyl in top condition be sure to test out the cleaning product on a small bit of the vinyl where it cannot be seen. By running a test clean over the vinyl you can be sure the product that you have chosen works well and does not have unexpected impacts on your vinyl product.
