I just got an old house with an old kitchen floor that is covered with old linoleum that has a film of old wax on it. I would like to remove the old wax and apply a new sealant--either new wax or polyurethane to keep it from absorbing new dirt and hopefully enable me to use a "Mop and Glo" type product and not have to get on my hands and knees everytime I want to clean the floor. What do you suggest?

armstrong makes a product called "new begining" its a wax remover,they also make a floor cleaner called "once and done" for normal cleaning,and they make a polish,"shine keeper" to add a shine to a dull floor.all three products work well together.good luck p.s. all are available from home depot

how old is the linoleum? it Antique?.. ie a decorative (looks like a carpet) piece or shhet goods.. and how bad has it yellowed?.. replacing it may be a good way to "freshen it up"..
