I fill the container with warm water, fill the cap with one half to three quarters vinegar and two to three drops of liquid Dawn dish cleaner.
It gets vinyl shiny and disinfects also. It also cleans shower floors!

There are a few differences between the Hoover Floormate and the Hoover Floormate Deluxe. First being the tanks the Floormate has a top load 32 oz tank, and the Deluxe has a side load 48 oz tank. The Deluxe model has a wood floor brush where as the Floormate does not. The Deluxe model also has the clean boost feature that the Floormate model doesn't have. The regular Floormate has a longer cord (20 ft vs. 27 ft), is heavier (16lbs vs. 13.8 lbs) , has a vacuum feature and a wider nozzle (13in vs. 11.5 in) than the Deluxe.
