What to use to safely clean linoleum floors?

DW wanted to know what she should use to safely clean our TT's linoleum floors. Not exactly sure what brand they are but we have a 2012 Forest River Micro Lite 21 FBRS. Any help would be appreciated.

From the BeauFloor Site

General Maintenance

The amount of daily usage will determine how often cleaning is required.

Sweep as necessary with a soft broom. Care must be taken if you use a
vacuum cleaner. Do not use vacuum cleaners with “beater bars”.

Wipe over with a clean damp mop or cloth, which should be rinsed
frequently in clean water. Remember that all floors can be slippery when
wet.

When necessary, wash with a solution of clean water and mild detergent
or domestic floor cleaning emulsion*. Rinse thoroughly and soak up
residual water. For additional lustre, buff with a dry cloth.

Spots, marks and spillages should be wiped up as soon as possible.
Cushioned floors with an additional protective coating such as Beauflor
Premium Protect, Multi Protect and Ultra-grip, do not normally require
polish. Other floors (Bartoli/Lioni) will require polishing to protect the floor's
surface from staining agents and to give a surface shine. For such floors,
apply a liquid emulsion floor polish** immediately after installation and
thereafter at 6 - 12 month intervals as required. Always follow the
manufacturer's instructions when using a floor polish or cleaner.

*Do not use - wire or nylon wool scouring pads, furniture polish, spirit based polish, powder or liquid abrasive cleaners, bleach or strong detergents

** Always follow the manufacturer's instructions - check that the
cleaner/polish is suitable for use with cushioned vinyl floor coverings.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I purchased a "Bona" Floor Care Kit at Lowes, and it does the job properly.

X2 on Simple Green......1 or 2 ounces in a gallon of water. You don't have to rinse.

I found the paperwork in our pile - the BeauFloor says 'clean with a non abrasive cleaner such as Mr. Clean'. No 'bleach or harsh chemicals'.

wonder what the chemical difference is between Mr. Clean and diluted Simple Green/Pinesol ???

Any chemists here?
