In my experience, an iron does help to soften old linoleum. Of course,
it is still not as cutable as fresh linoleum. DO NOT STICK LINOLEUM IN
THE MICROWAVE by itself--this will lead to your microwave breaking. If
you have to use a microwave, put the lino in the microwave with a glass
of water--this will ensure no damage will be done to your microwave.
(This is also a good tip for warming socks up in the microwave.)
