Painting vct in basement

I'm new to DIY. I have an older basement floor which is a dingy white vct. I need a cheap quick (ish) fix and thought painting would be a good idea. Only problem is, I've no idea how. Any suggestions on paint and sealants or whatever I need to do to get the job done would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I don't think paint will stick to VCT.

I agree, paint is a bad idea! Paint will probably stick long term in places but it will wear [maybe pop] off the traffic areas in short order. I don't know if cleaning/waxing will help but ultimately it's best to save your money for replacement.

btw - welcome to the forums!

If it's dingy, that is dirt. Paint won't stick to dirt.
