Try using a regular pencil eraser.

Try a product called "Goof-Off." You can get it at Home Depot. Lowe's or in the hardware/paint department at Walmart etc. It removes just about any type of glue or adhesive.

It will remove the finish as well.

The finish on vinyl reacts with the polymers in the latex backing of the rug. It is a molecular change and it will not go away with anything short of removing the finish.

Put on a good pair of walking shoes or athletic shoes and scrub it off by using the sole of the shoes as a scrub brush. Rub your feet back and forth.

Use those "magic erasers" I would use the name brand toughest strength for those. My daughter had these black boots that made bad rubber marks on the kitchen floor, the magic erasers worked like magic!

You can use goof off product, but it does leave an oily residue some make sure to use a soap/water solution to get rid of the goof off.
