You can try dabbing some 20 or 40 volume hydrogen peroxide on it and let it sit about five or ten minutes (do a colorfast test in an inconspicuous place first) and see if that will work, but in my experience as a hairstylist for 35 years and a salon owner for 15 of them it will be the luck of the draw whether it will come out even using the peroxide.

Been there, done that. ACETONE nail polish remover. Put some on a washcloth and dab away the stain. I have inlaid.

My roommate got hair dye on our linoleum floors. How do I get it out?

Hair Dye on a Linoleum Floor

My mother uses the Clorox Bleach pen and lets it sit for a few minutes before she wipes it off. Her linoleum is beige, I'm not sure it would work on a darker color. Just a thought. (11/06/2006)

I use Clorox Cleanup to clean my 1950's white formica counter top; bet it would work on linoleum, too, but I agree that it might ruin it if it is dark in color. (11/07/2006)

Since Creme Perioxide removed Henna from my Formica Bath countertops, I'll bet it will remove Hair Dye from your vinyl lino. flooring. I "painted" the stain with the Creme Perioxide, let it sit over night covered in plastic to keep it moist. Next day it was back to new! You can buy this separately at Beauty Supply stores, or perhaps where hair bleach is sold? Good luck and God bless you. : ) (11/12/2006)
