Wet Paper Stained My Linoleum Floor

My daughter was using coloured paper and left it on the linoleum floor and the dog wet it. Now the dyes are all over the linoleum. I have tried bleach and Handy Andy, also meths, but to no results. Please help as I'm in a rental.

I have used WD-40 to get black scuff marks off my linoleum, it might work on the dye.

Try hydrogen peroxide and a drop or two of dawn dish soap.

I had a blue paper on my linoleum floor and after getting wet it has now stained and I am having a hard time getting it out. My floor is tan and brown so without bleaching out the original color what can I do?

Have you tried Oxyclean? Might do it. How big is the area? You might try on a stain similar to the one on your floor color. Good luck (05/23/2006)
