How to Get Grease Off Laminate Flooring

A laminate floor is easy to clean and maintain. Because it is also inexpensive compared to other flooring materials, it is often installed in many areas of the home, including the kitchen. If part of the laminate floor is greasy -- perhaps from splattered cooking grease -- clean it up immediately. The floor will be dangerous to walk on until you do. Fortunately, there are several ways to remove grease off of laminate flooring, so if the grease is a bit stubborn, you can try another method to remove it.

Clean grease spills immediately to keep you and your family safe.

Step 1

Wipe up any excess grease with a damp paper towel and discard it.

Step 2

Moisten a rag with a laminate floor cleaner, diluted per label instructions if necessary. Wipe the grease away with the floor cleaner. Rinse the floor with a clean, damp rag and dry it with another rag or with paper towels.

Step 3

Mix equal parts vinegar and water if the grease remains. Moisten a rag with the solution and wipe away the grease. Rinse the area with a clean, damp rag and dry it when finished.

Step 4

Squirt a heavy-duty, grease-removing dish detergent on any remaining greasy spots. Rub the spot with a paper towel or rag, then rinse the soap completely off with a clean damp rag. Dry the floor afterward.
