Removing Rug Backing Stuck To Linoleum Floor

I used to have a rug on my kitchen floor. When I moved it, it left some of the backing, like glue on the linoleum. Any suggestions on how to get it off?

Try spraying it thoroughly with WD40, let set 10 - 15 minutes, and scrape with a plastic scraper, spatula, or edge of a credit card so you don't scratch the floor. This worked for me on a vinyl tile floor. Maybe it will work for you.

Try acetone-type nail polish remover.
