Removing Linoleum Tiles Part 2



 One of the best things I discovered when I was removing tiles was an alternative to the toxic glue removers currently on the market with the exception of Goo Gone.   Baby oil and baking soda turned out to be the solution.  I sprinkled the baking soda on the tiles, then squirted the baby oil on the tiles back and forth until they were saturated and then waited for the oil to do its work at least for 20 minutes.  Then I taped a metal spatula to a broom handle sans the broom and with that I meticulously scrapped each tile and if you look below you can see the results.  I still have a couple more to go but the kitchen and dining rooms are  done!  Thank goodness.
