        I am putting down a new floor in my bathroom and have removed two old floorings. The 3rd flooring the
        vinyl top has come off but the paper/glue part is remaining on the floor. I put boiling water on a part of it and have scraped it and it does come off but there must be a product that I could use that that would be a lot easier. Can you please suggest something?

        Elbow grease and scraping. Soniccrafter type tools have a flat blade that works fairly well at this. Or, rent a heavy duty version.

        After all this time, you will not find a solvent that will touch this.
