“I have blue dye on my new linoleum floor from a paper bag. What can I use to get it out?”
This is a tough one, we have had success and failure with this problem. Linoleum is, unfortunately, not very resilient (translation…stains easy).
Try these techniques :
I would use a general purpose solvent or even rubbing alcohol, which is usually recommended to remove ink.
If it doesn’t wipe off, you may have to use a medium aggressive scrubbing pad (green).
Either way, using a strong chemical and scrubbing you will have to apply a wax to the floor to protect at least the area you cleaned. Remember always test a small area first before using a chemical or technique you have not used before on the surface you are cleaning.
