Use Brillo pads to get rid of scuff marks on linoleum floor. Always works for me. Make sure you are gentle with it. You don't want to scratch your floor. Then clean up the area with soap and water with a paper towel. Do immediately, I wouldn't know if the Blue from the Brillo stains or not. It never has with me.

Another way I discovered was by watching the cleaning guy at our local Staples store. He simply cut a slit into an old tennis ball, and stuck the tennis ball on the end of a broom handle. He then used the tennis ball to rub away the black scuff stains on their floors. It worked really well, just like an eraser. (02/01/2006)
I used the Mr Clean magic eraser, (think that is what it is called), hardly any elbow grease needed (02/02/2006)
My favorite next to the magic eraser, is actually just a pencil eraser - or, believe it or not, the white sole of a tennis shoe! (02/02/2006)
Tennis balls do wonders on scuff marks on floors. A warehouse I had worked at the cleaning crew had a tennis ball on a stick and walked thru the office halls removing scuff marks. (03/13/2006)
I use a green teflon pad soaked in multi-surface cleaner. Instead of scrubbing on my hands and knees, I use my foot. This works great on laminate, too. Fast and easy!
Sunhat suggestion of using a tennis ball on a pole works even better with a green teflon pad underneath the ball.
You can use the tennis ball on a pole with a dry rag wrapped and secured around the ball (rubber band) for wood floors.
Many scuff marks come off by just rubbing them with the bottom of the shoe your wearing (rubber sole). I clean floors for a living and do this every day. (03/05/2010)
