Cleaning Rubber Marks off a Vinyl Floor

How can I remove black rubber shoe scuff marks from my kitchen vinyl floor? It's brand new linoleum and I don't want to ruin the finish. Thanks!

I always use toothpaste, just rub it on wait a few seconds and wipe it off.

The same way you get scuffs off nice shoes - nail polish remover.

A friend of mine told me she had watched a maintenance man at an airport walking around with a tennis ball attached to a handle erasing scuff marks from the floor!

I like Mr. Clean Erasers. They are WONDERFUL!

We bought a doublewide mobile home years ago and when they put it together tar got on the bedroom carpet. When they came to replace the carpet the man asked if he could try something before removing the carpet. He sprayed with WD-40 and got all signs of the tar up. (We told them not to remove the carpet, LOL) We have used WD-40 on paint, tar, marks on the floor, all types of things since. I have MY OWN can so I don't have to share with hubby!! Good luck

Depending on the color of your floor, just a plain old pencil eraser, red or white, will usually do the trick.

After trying the rubber eraser and a white rubber shoe (neither of which worked), the nail polish remover worked like a charm!

The baking soda was perfect. No damage to the floor!

Nail polish remover worked like a charm. We tried baking soda and hand sanitizer as mentioned above but the acetone-based remover we tried worked immediately. Thanks!
